Comedy gold: CNN anchor in utter disbelief as Chicago is eliminated

posted at 12:00 pm on October 2, 2009 by Allahpundit

I’ll keep updating the other thread but this one’s too much fun to bury there. An instant classic, courtesy of Greg Hengler.

Update: While you watch, a question from John Miller to meditate on. I fear we all know the answer, my friends.

It’s..it’s..not possible! Obama is a deity! The universe adores him! It’s a conspiracy I tells ya!

Awesome!!!!!!

HadithHarry on October 2, 2009 at 12:02 PM

For the first time in a long time I am proud of The World.
Maybe people are catching on that Obama is a fraud and an empty suit.

….The agony of defeat.

TugboatPhil on October 2, 2009 at 12:02 PM

If CNN was in utter disbelief, I can only imagine the reaction on ONBC.

Lance Murdock on October 2, 2009 at 12:03 PM

If only we’d passed healthcare reform, this never would have happened!!!!!

LOL

Ohhh, the humanity!

I wish I could see the video from here. I would just love to bathe in their humiliation.

I am so going to watch Olberman, Chrissy, and Rachel Maddow tonight. This will be comedy gold.

And check out the headline on the ticker. Anybody listening? Hello?

I’ll keep updating the other thread but this one’s too much fun to bury there.

Might as well. It’s hijacked every other thread on the blog.

I don’t this is going to stop being funny. I badly want a Chicago Olympics t-shirt.

But hey, at least the recession is over, Mr. President.

That Berlin speech only took Obama as far as the Flugplatz.

Fletch54 on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Obama’s Hindenberg.

jeff_from_mpls on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Now that this important issue is resolved, the One can now concentrate on less pressing issues like Afghanistan.

Nice expenditure of political capital there, POTUS.

HAHA oh man.

jhffmn on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Always figured it would be Madrid or Rio. Madrid probably.

I’m just glad NYC didn’t get the 2012 games. Traffic is bad enough around here. Fughedaboutit.

JetBoy on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Maybe next time Oprah should bring along some of her “favorite things”. That’ll work.

milwife88 on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Goes to the show that Obama can’t win any election legitimately, without the help of Acorn.

year_of_the_dingo on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Hilarious…I hope Obama and Co. like omelets…

StaticElectricityMan on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

if they just realized how arrogant he is, they wouldn’t be in such disbelief.

For the first time in my life I am proud of the IOC

PatriotRider on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

The IOC is racist…

SHARPTOOTH on October 2, 2009 at 12:05 PM

The IOC is obviously racist.

quax1 on October 2, 2009 at 12:06 PM

RACIST’S

rjoco1 on October 2, 2009 at 12:06 PM

What! The celebrity contingent for the USA was dis’d by the world community. How can this be? There must be some mistake. The world should love us now.
 
Sorry, can’t contain my sarcasm. I can’t wait to watch Gibbs on the podium make excuses.

Maybe if Oprah gave all the IOC members a Pontiac we would have won….HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

PatriotRider on October 2, 2009 at 12:07 PM

The World is racist.
Best news since last November.

GaltBlvnAtty on October 2, 2009 at 12:07 PM

It’s practically standing still now. They’ve dropped ropes out of the nose of the ship, and they’ve been taken ahold of down on the field by a number of men. It’s starting to rain again; it’s — the rain had slacked up a little bit. The back motors of the ship are just holding it just, just enough to keep it from — It burst into flames! It burst into flames, and it’s falling, it’s crashing! Watch it! Watch it, folks! Get out of the way! Get out of the way! Get this, Charlie! Get this, Charlie! It’s fire — and it’s crashing! It’s crashing terrible! Oh, my, get out of the way, please! It’s burning and bursting into flames, and the — and it’s falling on the mooring-mast. And all the folks agree that this is terrible, this is the, one of the worst catastrophes in the world. Ohhhhh! It’s–it’s–it’s the flames, [indecipherable, 'enty' syllable] oh, four- or five-hundred feet into the sky and it … it’s a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. It’s smoke, and it’s flames now … and the frame is crashing to the ground, not quite to the mooring-mast. Oh, the humanity … all the passengers screaming around here. I told you, I can’t even talk to people whose friends are on there. Ah! It’s–it’s–it’s–it’s … o–ohhh! I–I can’t talk, ladies and gentlemen. Honest, it’s just laying there, a mass of smoking wreckage. Ah! And everybody can hardly breathe and talk, and the screaming. Lady, I–I’m sorry. Honest: I–I can hardly breathe. I–I’m going to step inside, for I cannot see it. Charlie, that’s terrible. Ah, ah — I can’t. I, listen, folks, I–I’m gonna have to stop for a minute because I’ve lost my voice. This is the worst thing I’ve ever witnessed.

–Herbert Morrison, reporter on scene at Hindenberg disaster

jeff_from_mpls on October 2, 2009 at 12:07 PM

I can’t believe these yahoos ever thought that dragging their sorry butts over there was going to have some influence.

Again, Obama should be doing his job instead of this crap. Noonan said some junk about people worrying about the life of Obama. Well, I sure don’t. I worry about our servicemen and women, our police officers, and the people of American Samoa. Obama has all the protection in the world.

Blake on October 2, 2009 at 12:07 PM

Can you imagine the teeth nashing coming from Chicago and the Daly machine?

Sir Napsalot on October 2, 2009 at 12:07 PM

I guess they couldn’t get ACORN inside the IOC.

thomasaur on October 2, 2009 at 12:07 PM

I wonder… with Obama being spurned on the olympics, Iran, etc, will he start finally taking a harder line with foreign nations if for no other reason than because his ego was hurt?

Chiasmos on October 2, 2009 at 12:08 PM

Someone in the IOC is a rabid Glenn Beck 9/12er

0321_GUY on October 2, 2009 at 12:08 PM

They showed off Obama like a pet poodle, then wacked his nose with a newspaper and sent him outside.

But hey, he’ll do better with Iran. Really. Honest. Right.

Quisp on October 2, 2009 at 12:08 PM

This is what happens when that “tingle up the leg” becomes a full blown epileptic seizure. Love it.

elduende on October 2, 2009 at 12:08 PM

That is just outstanding and I bet Rush is going to have a field day with this one.

What a repudiation of “the One” and his Chicago tactics.

Guess you aren’t as popular as you thought there Barry.

This means we’ll miss the opening ceremony in Al Capone stadium.

Bummer.

nyx on October 2, 2009 at 12:10 PM

Next thing he’ll blame the U.S. for imperialism and say “I knew all along it was going to be Rio, and I’m so happy not all things have to be U.S. American, all the time. We’re all in it together. Save the world”, heh.

Schadenfreude on October 2, 2009 at 12:10 PM

Houston, this is tranquility base. The Ego has landed.

Bwahahahahahahaha!

JunkCoast on October 2, 2009 at 12:10 PM

Hey CNN!

Exactly what part of CHICAGO IS OUT don’t you understand?

pilamaye on October 2, 2009 at 12:10 PM

As a native Illinoisan, I’m happy for my home state. Now, without the cover of the Olympics, maybe they can actually start to fix their problems in the right way.

NebCon on October 2, 2009 at 12:10 PM

Apparently our First Lady hasn’t ‘sacrificed’ enough!

Next time maybe she sould offer REAL blood of her own.

Sir Napsalot on October 2, 2009 at 12:10 PM

Spin: Bush did so much damage to the American Image that, even though the world loves Obama, he could not fix what Bush as done overnight.

I have a feeling that this is the meme that will be used.

Chiasmos on October 2, 2009 at 12:12 PM

Maybe Michelle should have said yesterday “If you choose Chicago it will be the first time that I respect the world”.

Schadenfreude on October 2, 2009 at 12:12 PM

NBC’s Chuck Todd says this is really a blow for Mayor Daly…
and McDonald’s couldn’t get the Olympics to Chicago….no discussion about the Obamas’ epic failure.

Wyznowski on October 2, 2009 at 12:13 PM

I could understand Chicago losing. But losing with the lowest score of all? Does it suggest some kind of backlash against Obama’s ways?

petefrt on October 2, 2009 at 12:13 PM

The least number of votes!! I didn’t realize they threw out the bottom one.

They’ll try to claim that Chicago lost out despite Obama’s personal efforts. But somewhere deep inside thay all know the truth. Chicago lost BECUSAE of Obama. Own it.

lorien1973 on October 2, 2009 at 12:10 PM

LOL

A conservative pundit needs to point out this is what the world wants. The left thought electing Obama would cause he world to shower us with kindness when the opposite is true. The world loved Obama because they assumed he was weak, a post-=modern president for a post America world. The left is being blindsided by what conservatives knew all along.

Theworldisnotenough on October 2, 2009 at 12:15 PM
