On the Olympic announcement, I’ll let Lexington Green at Chicago Boyz speak for me: I can only second virtually everything he says.  And besides, I don’t have time to write much ‘cuz I have to run to the airport–for a flight to Chicago, ironically, to see the Smoking Popes in concert with #1 daughter.

It will be interesting to observe the mood.  My guess is that it will be like the GNP Financial Trading room the day of the Crash, 19 October, 1987–half the people despondent, half overjoyed.

  1. I completely agree with their choice of Rio de Janeiro. The Olympics should go to the wretched of the earth, not the privileged nations like the US or Japan.

  2. +++The Olympics should go to the wretched of the earth+++

    Good point. The wretcheder, the better.

    It is moral to reward sloth and not industriousness, after all.

  3. BTW, Brazil have been darn successful economically lately. So it is not wrteched anymore.

    The Games should have gone to Bolivia instead.

  4. I’d prefer Cuba, to reward it for being the world’s only sustainable society.

    Industriousness is not a necessarily good thing. You need to work to put food on your table, but it is equally important to know when to stop eating. The West and the industrial world in general doesn’t realize that, and the results will be tragic.

  5. This bum, Mr. O’Bum, is either on drugs, or plain stupid.
    As Rush said this morning, politicians work out details ahead of time through the backdoor negotiations, and then show up in the final step just to sign the papers on the dotted line.
    This bum just barged into the room like an elephant, and made a stupid speech. Who the hell cares about you and your daughters, and your corrupt Chicago cesspool?
    In a commentary on one of the Russian web sites a smart guy said that Russia should be very concerned about Obama. He is a one-term president, just like Carter, and after him “Ronald Reagan” is coming.
    I completely agree with him. O’Bum will so much degrade this nation that we will have to elect someone like Ronald Reagan.
    Someone like Mussolini would be much better. We would round up Russian agents like poluchi (former SOBlime), and put them in labor camps or, better yet, in gas chambers.
