More Olympics Stupidity

So if its not Obama's fault that the Olympics didn't come to Chicago (and truly, I don't believe it is), then who's fault is it?

According to our illustrious Senator, Roland Burris (D-Blagojevich), its the fault of.... (drum roll, please) (you're not gonna believe this!) (of course, who else would he blame?)... George W. Bush.

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.

What a moron. No, let me rephrase that. What a FUCKING moron.

We lost. We put up a good fight, but we lost. In large part because Rio played the IOC's game better than we did. There is nothing deeper to this than that. IT'S NO ONE'S FAULT.


Mark Kirk for US Senate!
The sooner we get this place holder out the better.
