It was a silly decision in the first place. Why banning only olympic games and not all the rest? Politicians once more and their foolishness. They will see a rise in betting of course in this summer, in comparison to the rest with only the normal games running every year.
To be honest I liked McCain when he was running against Bush pre-2000 in the republican primaries, but seeing what he become after that and witnessing his failed bid in 2008...

Taking the Olympics as an event for Amateur Sports is either really dumb or incredibly naive. 80% of the participating sportsmen and women who are winning medals doing this in full time. In every country.
