FUCK YOU, OBAMA, and Michelle and Oprah. You didn't carry as much weight as you thought you did, huh?

CHICAGO -- Thousands of people stood in bewildered silence in downtown Chicago on Friday after the International Olympic Committee eliminated the city from the race for the 2016 Summer Olympics in the first round of voting.
The stunning vote in Copenhagen was carried on huge television screens set up in the Daley Center to host what many believed would be a celebration. The choice of Chicago as the host city had seemed so likely to many still basking in the glow of hometown Sen. Barack Obama's election as president.
Instead, Chicago was bounced in the first round, bringing an audible gasp from the crowd. The elimination came so quickly - more than an hour before the final announcement - that people were still excitedly talking among themselves when IOC President Jacques Rogge announced: "The city of Chicago, having obtained the least number of votes, will not participate in the next round."

The spin has already started, blaming the evil republicans for the loss. Frankly I think the IOC read the local paper for Chicago and releized that any city that has blacks beating to death honor students might not be the safest place for people to watch sporting events.

Oprah carries more weight than she needs to. What a bunch of egotistical pompous asses.

Brian - Ya think? I'd be willing to bet that had everything to do with it. Of course everybody is going to blame the gang kids that have been living that way since they were old enough to walk instead of the corruption and lack of policing.

Deb - Oprah carries more weight than she needs to? Deb, Deb, Deb........

BANG! BANG! BANG! The sound of Obama, Mrs. Obama and Oprah being shot down... should have just kept their mouths shut and stayed the fuck out of places where they don't belong... actually, that would be everywhere...

Nobody will blame the gang kids; they're just "victims," remember? It's gotta be whitey's fault somehow.
