Hard to see why the Olympic Committee is supposed to be impressed by Oprah, who has made a career of sitting on a couch overstating the obvious. There’s no Olympic event that requires these skills.

How about the luge? She’d go down the course pretty quickly.

Thank goodness for the clowns in Copenhagen. Now Rio gets saddled with the cost. My Brazilian relatives think it will cost the country $26 Billion by the time you include the graft. Maybe Hugo had something to do with the voting - just wondering.

Or why Obama thought the Olympic committee was interested in why he chose to live in Chicago, or that Chicago was excited to sit and watch Obama win the Presidency.

In his entire speech, he spent one sentence mentioning Chicago’s success in international events, and one of them was the worlds fair that was, like, a generation ago.
