Georgia withdraws from Eurovision

The Eurovision Song Contest organizers have disqualified Georgia’s Eurovision entry, “We Don’t Want to Put In.”  Rather than put up a new entry, Georgia decided instead to withdraw from the competition.  I’m amused by the following comment by FP Passport writer Joshua Keating: “It’s very sad to see Eurovision’s organizers compromise the integrity of this august institution by bowing to Russia’s objections.”  I hope he meant that in a snarky way, especially since he had just brought up Dustin the Turkey.
