Swimming with the Razorfishes

Monday, August 23, 2004

Against many expectations, the Iraqi men's football team is doing well in the Olympics. Bravo, guys.

In an act of remarkably bad taste, the George W. Bush reelection campaign uses the Iraqi football team in campaign advertisements.

The Iraqi players respond:

"Iraq as a team does not want Mr. Bush to use us for the presidential campaign," Iraqi midfielder Salih Sadir told SI.com [...] "He can find another way to advertise himself."

Bravo, Guys.
