The truly sad thing is, I had to read the article to realize it’s a joke.
Some Republican legislator needs to introduce a bill forbidding the use of Federal Funds to bring the Olympics to Chicago or build anything intended as a venue for the games.
Not sure, but I think I just felt my brains leak out through my ears…
The Olympics is the world’s biggest pork program. Luckily, most* of it is paid for from local dollars, NBC, and the suckers who show up to watch it live. If only we could tax soda to pay for all those corn subsidies, we’d be almost as cost-efficient. And yes, I did say “efficient” when discussing the Olympics, but only because I was comparing it to agricultural subsidies.
*I didn’t say “all”, didn’t mean to say “all”, and don’t mean “all”. There will be some tax breaks involved, in the very least, if Chicago gets picked. Luckily, Rio will probably win.
Some random points regarding the President’s trip…
He’ll be over there, rather than here. I always feel safer when government types are out of the country.
This actually may be within this bozo’s limited capabilities.
Because of the second point, if he doesn’t come through it will be an EPIC FAIL
And, because of point three, I think Chicago is a lock. I don’t think even the One is arrogant and/or stupid enough to stick his neck out on anything less than a sure thing.
So much for trying to overestimate the narcissism and fecklessness of the Obamessiah.
