Ex-Prime Minister Koizumi Not Invited to the Beijing Olympics

At least that’s what the Mainichi headline says. The article also claims that Ex-Prime Ministers Mori and Abe have been invited, as well as the incumbent Yasuo Fukuda.

And to think, we’d been foolish enough to believe that the Olympic and politics don’t mix. Now where did we get that idea in the first place…

You don’t think that the Mssrs. Mori and Abe are dumb enough to go without a quid pro quo, do you? In fact, what the hell are all these invitations to heads of state/government about anyway?
