That Capitalistic Communist Olympic Spirit!

The Olympic Opening Ceremony song, offered by a young Chinese girl, was lip synced. The girl with the beautiful voice wasn't pretty enough to garner center stage in Beijing. So they taped her version of "Ode to Motherland" and had a more suitable youth move her mouth, presenting it as her own.

Now which spirit denounces the appearance of a young girl? Would that be the Olympic spirit? Does it fit into a government controlled model? Or does it sell more ads?
