South Park Dudes Need To Write New Song: ‘Blame Bush’
President Bush’s insidious evil is still causing trouble for us all. The epitome of upstanding, not-corrupt-at-all *cough* leadership, Senator Burris says so!
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.
First, losing Chicago the Olympic bid and now *I* have a super bad headache. Will Bush’s reign of terror never end? And Firefox blows in the super bad, not fun at all way, which I am certain is also Bush’s fault. He is obviously trying to ruin Al Gore’s intranets.
BigGovernment notes that Chicago was selected as a finalist in June 2008, when George Bush was still President and prior to the ascension..err.. election of The One ™ It must have been some evil plot crafted by Karl Rove.
But.. wait a minute .. the Danes say otherwise. From Flopping Aces:
Kai Holm, a former Olympics committee member, told the newspaper (translated): “The fact that Barack Obama came, could not do it. I think we lacked emotion, it seemed too empty and business-like. So when Tony Blair promoted London he was around three days to lobby and talk to people. You can not just come with the train one day and try to affect everything. People have felt that it was a lack of respect for the Olympics and sport in general. I think people felt it was too business-like to get into the way we have now seen it many times, and you would have feelings back.”
Hans Bonde, professor of sport history at the University of Copenhagen, told the newspaper: “Here come the more favor Obama just before the deadline and made showoff. He clearly won the battle in the media, but it turned out indeed to be indifferent. IOC members did not feel important, and they were indeed reduced to spectators and not players. So if he had come, he would have had time for a personal lubricant.”
The personal lubricant part strikes a chord, sadly. Because he hasn’t bothered with one for all of us either. Huh. Tony Blair was Bush’s buddy, yet HE managed to score an Olympic city hosting gig. Perhaps because he isn’t full of Smug ™ nor is he an egotistical, grossly narcissistic and delusional fool?
Something was rotten in the State of Denmark.
