Top Ten Reasons Chicago Didnít Get the Olympics
Telegraph ^ | October 3rd, 2009 | Email

Posted on 10/04/2009 8:22:49 AM PDT by Ooh-Ah

10. Dead people can’t vote at IOC meetings

9. Obama distracted by 25 min meeting with Gen. McChrystal

8. Who cares if Obama couldn’t talk the IOC into Chicago? He’ll be able to talk Iran out of nukes.

7. The impediment is Israel still building settlements.

6. Obviously no president would have been able to accomplish it.

5. We’ve been quite clear and said all along that we didn’t want the Olympics.

4. This isn’t about the number of Olympics “lost”, it’s about the number of Olympics “saved” or “created”.

3. Clearly not enough wise Latina judges on the committee

2. Because the IOC is racist.

1. It’s George Bush’s fault.

I’m not sure who gets the credit for this gem, but since it’s posted at National Review Online’s blog, The Corner, the author appears to be National Review editor and Fox News commentator Rich Lowry.

All the rest of the world knows about Chicago is gangsters and Al Capone. Thank you Hollywood.

This was actually kind of funny the first three or four times it was posted.

I'll tell y'all why Obama lost... he did it the Chicago Way, his way, not the Blazing Saddles Way that we all know works to perfection!

Whoa? We can all the way back through space and time... to see this empty suit idiot blow it?

Hey, I let Jimmy Cater see my flying saucer... and he didn't do a single good thing for me or Mars!

I got all you beat. I gave Bill Clinton the best three minutes of his life... and the dumb sumbitch then spilled a full glass of water on me!

Well, you go to give the devil their due... the Bamster did have Michelle with him and she certainly packs the equipment to be first in the Blazing Saddles Campfire Bean Eating Way!

“Thank you Hollywood.”

Hollywood had nothig to do with it. Capone was the first celebrity gangster, just like Gotti a generation later. He made headlines the world over, especially after February 14, 1929.

speaking of Hollywood... in my opinion, Obambi and the beast are a Hollywood production

complicit in this farce... the Universities he was said to have attended (no one at Columbia remembered him)... his missing background information (birth certificate), the DNC, etc.

11. Michelle forgot to bring her boiled kale dish to bribe the commitee.

12. Zer0 didn’t invite the IOC to his backyard Biergarten at the Whitehouse for the Beer Summit.

13. If he could insult the Special Olympics, what would he say about the Extra-Special Olympics?

14. He forgot to have séances in the White House with Nancy Reagan.

We need some more......

BEFORE the vote, the Ohaha's looked like they were gonna
experience connubial bliss under the table, as a show of
confidence, while the IOC voted.

AFTER THE VOTE
