Cheaters…

No, not John Edwards, though I did get a great press release from some PR agency this morning, offering to hook me up with a shrink to tell me why men lie about cheating.

Uh … because they don’t want to get caught?

Thank you — I’ll take that honorary doctorate of psychology now …

No, again I just can’t let go of the obvious cheating (and sucking up) that’s going on at the Olympics in regards to the Chinese. Apparently someone dug up a Chinese news article from less than a year ago, painting a rosy picture of the up and comers in Chinese “women’s” gymnastics.

One of the kids, whom the article listed as being 13, is now competing in the Olympics. That’s the big event all over TV right now, in which the gymnists can’t compete until they’re 16.

You go ahead and do the math on that one and get back to me.

Of course, the Chinese flatly deny it, saying the reporter got it wrong. So let’s hear them explain why the kid looks seven and weighs 60 pounds. Can’t someone¬†do some DNA testing on these kids, or cut them open and count the rings, or something?¬†

    Basically, the only gymnast that doesn’t look like she’s 12 is the lady who is in her late 30′s. Can’t remember her name, but I think she was Russian. Wow, that freaked me out. An older face on a 7 year old body.
