In good old Singapore, in between canings for chewing gum, the New York delegation led by Mayor Mike Bloomberg desperately tries to get the bid for the 2012 Olympics, while we at home desperately hope that the security and traffic nightmare that may well bankrupt our public coffers goes somewhere else... like Paris.
Said delegation got a huge boost from the arrival of America's principal political rock star, our next President (and sharer of a birthday with Leon Trotsky and a talking dog) made her way to Singapore... i.e. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY and the world).
Fortunately, plan A, the West Side Stadium, failed (helping Bloomberg to likely reelection). Not getting the Olympics should guarantee Bloomberg a second term. Ladies and gentlemen... go Paris!
At least in about 7 hours this will all be over. At least until Mayor Richie Rich and his dog Dollar put together NYC 2016...

I'm betting the Olympics won't be in Paris after Jacques ChIraq insulted Finnish cuisine...two Finns are on the Olympic Committee - and they get to vote. 'Word on the street is that those votes may be critical.
But I'm a little jaded. I have more use for naval lint than I do for the French.
At any rate, it'll be interesting to see how they vote - if that information is even made public.
As for the Hildebeest becoming President...God would not do that to this country unless It decided that the time to begin our period of decline had come.
She is a menace to the nth degree. 'Might as well elect that drunken lush socialist Kennedy.
I think if any Demonrat gets elected in 2008 it'll be a miracle. But let's wait and see how much further Howard Scream can divide our country.

As I take a moment's pause from my vacation, while realizing I'm having more fun as the loser, I've come to appreciate Jihad Jay cutting humor (particularly since it's no longer aimed at me). Of course, I wonder why his stated weblink doesn't exist.
And in case you still don't know, London won the Olympic bid officially today. It took a record amount of hummers, including those from the Spice Girls, performed on the 2012 selection committee members to seal the deal. Word is that Hillary could've swung things our way if she had been willing to perform. But if you ask Bill, there was no chance of this.

Bukakis...what in christ's name are you doing pausing from your vacation to respond to me?
They have medication for that.
But I am flattered nonetheless.
My stated weblink does exist. The Dog's horrible blogware policy gives an error (Your comment could not be submitted due to questionable content: ) for either keying in bad words or a complete URL. Not sure.
But beware: if your an anti-war, blame-America democrat your eyes will melt and pour down your cheeks.
Now, is that how Olympic cities are picked: who gives the most BJs?
I just figured Paris would get looked over because the food is bad.
At any rate, I think you're giving the Hildebeest too much credit to think we would have won any Olympic bid if she went down on the Olympic Committeemen's meatcicles like an angry porn star.
The last thing she blew was socialized medicine.
In fact, I'm willing to bet that the Arctic circle or the mind of terrorist is warmer than the Clinton bedroom.
'Just a theory.

Scratch that about the Dog's horrible blogware policy.
It's the Dog's crappy blogware.
Just keying in the error message made the post fail.

If you must attack the Dog, attack his ridiculous, throwback, knee-jerk homage to liberal theology, and his sucking at the teat of the Rock (Porn) Star of the Democratic Party in Decline. Don't attack his blogware. That's just mean.
