Should we boycott the Beijing Olympics?

Apparently Sarkozy is considering it. [Maybe he has better things to do.-ed. Yuck-yuck.] It does seem appealing on the surface since what the Chinese are doing (and have done, of course) in Tibet is execrable. We have been debating on Pajamas Media whether to call for this, not that we matter at all, but still…. The standard “liberal” publications like the NYT and the WaPo will undoubtedly tut-tut, huff and puff and do nothing. Should we? Don’t know. I welcome opinions here.
