Lindsey Graham: Maybe we should boycott the Olympics if Russia grants asylum to Snowden « Hot Air: "Game this out for me. How does “U.S. boycotts Olympics” lead to “Putin caves, deports Snowden to Washington”? It’s the underpants-gnome theory of sports diplomacy, except it’s not just ineffective but actually counterproductive. Imagine how much Putin would relish watching the U.S., which lectures Russia endlessly (and correctly) about rights abuses, throw an Olympic-sized tantrum over his decision to shelter a guy who’s selling himself as a champion of international civil liberties. (I can also imagine the Kremlin press conference. “Russia will not bow to fascism,” says The Leader with a smirk.)"
