Skip the 2014 Winter Olympics

LGBT Russians are pushing for a boycott of the Winter Olympics, to be held in Sochi in 2014. Given Putin's incredible hostility to gay people, and the draconian anti-gay laws he's passing, the Olympics will not be safe for gay athletes.

I hope this catches on. Certainly I suggest you try to dissuade friends from traveling to Russia to see the games. And no one should watch them on TV. Actually, I hope they're cancelled. I could see the EU forbidding athletes to attend because of the anti-gay threat posed by fearless leader Boris Badenov Vladimir Putin.

And as far as disappointing the athletes, there's a good chance that Putin would steal their medals anyway. So really, why go?
