The Pope is in Brazil and it is winter there. That made me think of the 2016 summer games. Will the summer games be held in their summer, or the summer in the northern hemisphere? The answer is the games will held in their winter, August 5 to August 21, 2016. At least we will still get a respite during campaign season 2016. Still it is inconsiderate of northern hemisphere nations to require the host nation to host the games in their winter.
The Olympics and Mitt‘s foreign trip, complete with gaffes, have done one favor for Mitt until he returns to the US and the Olympics are over, temporarily we are not discussing his taxes and Bain. Blessed silence until the campaign starts again and enters high gear until the election.
