The IOC blew past the Windy City.
Barbara, thank you for making my day! It’s cold as witch’s teat her (damned global warming!), and this news just filled me with warmth. I am surprised frankly that they decided this quickly. And to think the One and the Onette made such great sacrifices. I guess cosmic justice does exist.

Howard: it’s never a good idea to go as Big Bird if you’re not Big Bird.
I think Barry should send over those leftover Greek columns from his nomination to Mayor Daley as a little “thinking of you” consolation prize.

Barbara, I just read at The Corner: It’s racism! I should feel right at home.
P.S. I love the Drudge headline!

I say it’s time to start bombing stuff.

CK, by stuff I hope you mean the Commentary website for attempting to destroy ZC. (Let’s just make sure J.E. is out of the building.)

Well, we can bomb them, too, but if the International Community of Know-Betterists are going to reject our Truly Great Leaders, I think we should lash out angrily in ways that we know piss them off. Who could blame us for blowing off some righteous steam (other than the people who obviously don’t like us anyway)?
Oh, and boo-hoo, too.
Though frankly I’m already anticipating all the HD thong and zero-kini “human interest” pieces in 2016.

Gee, does this mean that Olbermann will be selecting the IOC as the WORST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD tonight for their quick and rapid rejection of The One and his greatness?

It’s tanga time at the O-games.
I think that Oprah shoulda brought Dr. Oz and Marianne Robinson for some “feel good” time with the IOC.
Someone on NRO: “The first time the Daley Machine *lost* a rigged election.

Yes. Plus (as noted at the Corner) this shows they’re racists.
Howard Portnoy on October 2, 2009 at 12:49 PM
As a life-long Chicagoan– thank you IOC!!!!
