Breaking the Law, Breaking the Law

It's bad enough that the Bush/Halliburton team is using the Iraqi Soccer Team in their ads against the players wishes, it turns out that they are actual breaking U.S. law. According to a Sports Illustrated article:
An act of Congress, last revised in 1999, grants the USOC exclusive rights to such terms as "Olympic," derivatives such as "Olympiad" and the five interlocking rings. It also specifically says the organization "shall be nonpolitical and may not promote the candidacy of an individual seeking public office."
Do we really want a blatant copyright criminal, a law-breaker, as our Commander-In-Chief?!? What's next, four years of our president re-transmitting baseball games without the express permission of Major League Baseball? I hope we never have to answer that question.

Mark, this is not shocking at all. Maybe the arrogance of the guy gets to me. Not what he is capable of doing!

You know, if the Olympics ask you to stop, then stop. This should be getting more press.
