Chicago Loses!

No, not the White Sox, the Cubbies, the Bears, the Bulls, or the Blackhawks. The Windy City itself. Just a day after debasing himself (again) by pitching the International Olympic Committee on the virtues of Chicago as an Olympic site, the Olympic pooh-bahs have eliminated Chicago and Tokyo from consideration.

Thousands of people gathered in downtown Chicago stood in stunned silence Friday after watching the International Olympic Committee choose someone else for the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The vote in Copenhagen was carried on huge television screens in the Daley Center, set up to carry what many had hoped would be approval of Chicago to host the games.

Instead, Chicago was bounced in the first round of voting. An audible gasp could be heard from the crowd. Many stood for a few minutes, staring at the screen, and at least one flung his hands into the air in a crude gesture toward the TV screen.

So much for "Yes We Can!"

Guess that's some of the strange new respect we continue to get from around the globe now that the hated Bushitler is gone.

It's funny how this popped up the day I got back to blogging. It's trivial in itself, but is a microcosm of the unfolding disaster that is this Administration. I'll be coming up with numerous posts over the next few days catching you up on my views as to what's behind what's been going on while I've been gone.
