UPDATE: Rio wins! They now get to spend an estimated 18 billion dollars, and figure out how to keep people alive in one of the top-ten most dangerous cities in the world, while they’re attending the Olympics. Definitely will up the tab. Carnival today, however! We dodged a bullet.

Looks like the Chicago Olympic-bid clan, which included the Mighty Oprah and Obama’s brain Valerie Jarrett, has been shot down. In the first round. Yeah, THAT was worth Obama’s global grovelling. The Corruption City will have to figure out another way to fleece the American taxpayer (since the clan promised that Chicagoans wouldn’t get robbed. I don’t think anyone in Chicago believed that one.)

When it was announced the Prez would be coming to make a classic TOTUS (Teleprompter Of The United States) speech to twist Olympic committee arms, people thought Chicago had it in the bag. Oops…looks like the committee has their corruption-radar up for good, historical reasons.

Michelle and Oprah jetted over (at taxpayer expense) separately from Barry and his Ego. Michelle declared her willing martyrdom for taking the trip to The Examiner thusly:

In her speech in Copenhagen today, First Lady Michelle Obama said her trip to Denmark, along with the travel of her “dear friend” and “chit-chat buddy” Oprah Winfrey, as well as tomorrow’s visit by President Obama, is a “sacrifice” on behalf of the children of Chicago and the United States. “As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days,” the first lady told a crowd of people involved in the Chicago project, “so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home.”

I just threw up in my mouth a little. Maybe Barry will have a few seconds to talk to General McCrystal now…since we have a losing battle raging in Afghanistan, and a President with zero military experience. But he sure can give a speech.
