Now maybe it's just me, but I'd think that since the Russians are already throwing a hissy fit about how the Olympics are not going favorably for them, CNN might have the good taste to post tasteful pictures of Russian athletes. Not so apparently. Irina Slutskaya already suffers in the U.S. as the butt of all sorts of jokes (if I have to explain why, then just stop reading now), but CNN decided they'd rub it in even further. In an article about last night's women's figure skating finals, CNN was tacky enough to post the following image:
Oh god, NOT NOW!!!  Damn you Metamucil!!!
Now really, couldn't they have used a picture less likely to piss off the Russians even further? They're already talking about dropping out of the next 2 Olympics, and possibly withdrawing this year as well. They say flattery will get you nowhere, but jeez, I think this is taking that too far.
