Olympics aren't supposed to be political

1972 served as a wake-up call for the world that the Olympics were not immune from terrorism, and politics.  If ever there was an event that showcased national pride without the intrusion of politics either internal or international politics, the Olympics should be it.  And for most people, that is indeed the case.  With the Olympic games set to open within the next 60 minutes or so, it serves us all well to disregard the politics that surround the games - the back and forth between Mitt Romney and a few British politicians, the risk of potential terrorist disruptions - and enjoy the spectacle of athletes giving it their all in their chosen sport.
