Team USA in the Opening Ceremonies

The team entered and received a pretty large round of applause.

Costas was quick to point out that though everyone likes our athletes, not very many people approve of our foreign policy.

Had to get that in there, and quick, lest anyone not understand that we’re the bad guys.

UPDATE: Whoa! Where the HELL did those guys come from?
Think they’re missing Uday? Think they wish America had stayed out of sovereign Iraqi affairs? Think they’d be there if Saddam still ran Iraq? Think the UN would have had Iraq back in the Olympics, even if they’d been given a dozen years to mediate things after the 1991 war? Think.

UPDATE 2: Costas seems to like Cuba though…
