Anybody catch the finals of the Olympic pairs figure skating competition Monday night? The Russians messed up in their program, the Canadians were FLAWLESS but the judges gave it to the Russian couple, who had stumbled. 4 of the 5 judges who voted for the Russian couple are from former and present communist countries. The 5th judge opting for the Russian pair Monday was Marie Reine Le Gougne of France. Insiders insist this was part of a deal. French skaters Marina Anissina and Gwendal Peizerat are apparently slated for a bronze medal in ice dancing, and there isn’t a French judge on the ice-dancing panel.

Durned Communists! Dratted French! :raspberry:
