Go Kazakhstan!!
I saw them win on men's road race and women's lifting! It was awesome!
I am paraphrasing someone else but it was funny. They said Kazakhstan shows up to the Olympics and acts like champions. Mitt Romney shows up to the Olympics and acts like Borat.

BUT if objects for gratitude and admiration are our desire, do they not present themselves every hour to our eyes? Do we not see a fair creation prepared to receive us the instant we are born --a world furnished to our hands, that cost us nothing? Is it we that light up the sun; that pour down the rain; and fill the earth with abundance? Whether we sleep or wake, the vast machinery of the universe still goes on. Are these things, and the blessings they indicate in future, nothing to, us? Can our gross feelings be excited by no other subjects than tragedy and suicide? Or is the gloomy pride of man become so intolerable, that nothing can flatter it but a sacrifice of the Creator? --Thomas Paine
