Catch the Olympic spirit!

Or, then again, maybe not. Sure, guys, let's give the Olympics to a repressive regime that's world famous for its violations of basic human rights. What could possibly go wrong?

Did you catch this bit of ripe offal from the Chinese Ambassador to Canada?

"The history of Tibet before the Chinese takeover was brutal and filled with bloodshed, the ambassador said. He said he'd done some research on the internet and discovered that a high-level expedition from Nazi Germany visited Lhasa in 1939 to study Tibetan ways and see if they fit into the Nazi worldview. Nazi scientists did make an uninvited visit to Tibet at that time.

Chinese control of Tibet had actually established respect for human rights, Lu said."
