To me, it was a no-brainer. Rio had the most compelling argument for hosting the games and had quite a contigency in Copenhagen. I was happy for them.
Is there anyway that we can still make the games, like everything else they speak of, all about the Obamas? Can we still have Obamalympics in Rio? Perhaps, if the IOC will adopt a few new games:
"Lie"crosse: Who can catch the most lies in Obama's speeches?
Field Hockey: How many CIA agents can be tanked in the field?
Gym"nasties": Who can insult more people than Nancy Pelosi?
Fencing: Can we all get "epee-epeed up"?
Diving: You're all wet, Obama!
Water Polo: Let's kick Poland's ass around the pool!
Triathlon: Lose the Olympics, the public option and allies! BUSTED!
Rugby: Wallow on the rug and pitch a hissy like Pelosi and Barney.
Feel free to add more!
