Court Orders Recount of Olympic Bid Polls to Remain Open
Pick a Paper ^ | October 2, 2009 | Pan_Yan

Copenhagen – An International Criminal Court judge has ordered that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) resume counting in the selection process for the host city of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. Judge Enrique Castro, appointed to the court last year by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and nephew of the Cuban President Raul Castro, ordered a stunned IOC to resume vote counting late Friday.

Judge Castro issued an emergency injunction after receiving multiple complaints of voter disenfranchisement by community activist groups Community Organizers International (COI), the Organization of American States (OAS) and Hezbollah.

COI chairwoman Valerie Jarrett voiced her organization’s approval of the judge’s decision. “As anyone who watched this charade being played out on television can plainly see the underprivileged were not well represented in this voting process. We have asked the court only for what is fair – that we be allowed to chose a diverse, multicultural pool of voters to balance the ‘white out’ that apparently dominates IOC voting.”

Hezbollah spokesman Islamic Rage Boy added that “There appears to have been a deliberate attempt by some cities not directly associated with Islam to exclude us from this process. We are very surprised by Madrid’s refusal to withdraw. I thought they learned their lesson in 2004. Oh, and death to all who oppose us. Peace be with you. The Jooos are to blame.”

No one from the IOC was immediately available for comment. One senior IOC official speaking on the condition of anonymity said that the IOC is in turmoil right now at this unprecedented turn of events. “No one has ever seen such chaos. Every voting member was in the room and all the votes had been counted. The judge’s order made no sense until a truck arrived and people started unloading boxes of ballots. They went straight to the counting table. I couldn’t believe it.”

Our sources verified the existence of several empty boxes at the IOC headquarters with a return address in Minnesota but were unable to confirm that the votes arrived in these containers.

Funny. But, you should add the parody tag, just to be safe.

I just saw this. An ACORN worker found a box of uncounted ballots in the trunk of her car. Stay tuned.

Senator Rowland Burris of Illinois, the Senator who was appointed to fill President Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat, blames George Bush for Chicago not getting the Olympics in 2016. Burris stated in an interview, shortly after the announcement, that the image of the U. S. has been so tarnished in the last 8 years that, even Barack Obama making an unprecedented pitch for the games could not overcome the hatred the world has for us as a result of George Bush. Wow! When will the Democrats in Congress ever get off this “Blame Bush” syndrome. Burris even went on to say that this is just another way Bush is now hurting Chicago. Yes blame Bush, don’t mind all the crime and corruption that has come out of Illinois over the last year. This “Blame Bush” strategy is getting pretty old.

Meanwhile Mayor Daily requests additional stimulus money to increase their “bid” to the IOC members who did not accept their last “bid”.

Satire and parody become increasingly difficult in an era wherein Black Panthers are allowed to intimidate white voters with impunity, repeated racist statements do not disqualify a lib from the Supreme Court, and Hollywood runs to the defense of an admitted pedophile because he didn’t commit rape-rape!

If Obama and His Acorn buddies had anything to do with it this would not be parody. I bet smoke is coming out of that bunch’s ears. Wha, wha, wha *(instead of Mmm, Mmm, Mmm). I can almost hear them whining about this now. Corrupt Chicago does not deserve an honor like this.

Just wait for Turbo Tim Geitner to announce that since the IOC got $1 billion in stimulus money, they should have awarded Chicago the Olympics.

And Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley is quoted this morning as saying, “Barack, you stink, next time we want some quid pro quo, we’ll send Blagojevich.”

Blame it on Axelrod!

Because his former PR firm did all the work and was paid millions for the project of presenting Chicago’s bid.

Follow the money trail!

This needs to be investigated.

Well all I can say is thank goodness for this turn of events. Something sure wasn't kosher in Copenhagen (apologies to any Islamic terrorists on here. I meant no offense by using the word "kosher").

I mean people, come on. There is no way the IOC could refuse the pleadings of the Holy Trinity of Barack, Michelle, and Oprah (further apologies to any Islamic terrorists on here. I meant no offense by using the term "Holy Trinity").

I know if I had been there I would have melted just from being near anyone of them, but all three? Tingles run up and down my leg just thinking about it.

It's obvious something was amiss, so let me point out something. Where is Copenhagen? And what color are the Danes? I rest my case.

I think the amounts deposited in their numbered accounts played a much larger role.

It’s a good way to weed out the people who post based on a title only. If someone made it past the Islamic Rage Boy part and still thought it was legitimate then they have other issues.

They should have gone for 'Demonstration Sport'. Judging would have been similar to figure skating, with separate scores for artistry and technique.
