The Lyrics

With so many problems at home and abroad, President Obama chose to stake his power and reputation on bringing the 2016 Olympic Games to Chicago. The results? Let's hope he has more success with Iran and health care!

No way! Chi-town didn't get the games
They say - Bush is once again to blame
And the damned I.O.C. - they snubbed Chicago

Yee - Ho! Their choice was so "downright mean"
Rio - gets it in twenty sixteen
How can they do this thing? They snubbed Chicago

The great god of all things
Spoke for it, it's true
But enough about Oprah
Obama was there too
What the hey? Now Michelle is feeling blue
Won't heed the Chosen One - they snubbed Chicago

Brazil - Better than Chicago? Please!
We will - beat them up and break their knees
That's how we do it in - sweet snubbed Chicago

All of the I.O.C.
Surely must be daft
We will miss all the billions
We could have made in graft
It's all gone - even though we used our craft
How did this all go down? They snubbed Chicago

Oh hell - guess our power wasn't there
Oh well - back to ramming through health care
But we will not forgive - they snubbed Chicago

Maybe our friend Ahmadinejad will help us next time! ;D

Thank God the olympics snubbed Chicago!! If we look at all the Chicago thugs in the Obama-nation administration, it shouldn't be any surprise why they made their decision accordingly.

The word over here in Scandinavia is that Chicago actually hurt their own campaign by bringing him in for just a few hours thinking the rest of the world would be awed enough to vote their way by that. Though the main problem was probably that most delegates still remember the over the top commercialised Coca-Colalympics in Atlanta 1996, the only summer games to NOT have been called the best ever by the IOC prez during his speech at the closing ceremony, so that was against any US candidate from the start. As for Brazil I think that we can already safely assume that the female part of the crowd at the beach volley tournament will be the best looking ever! :-)

I think O spent too much time saying Chitown should get the nod because he is from there and could maybe walk to the games. I too look forward to the beach volleyball. Nice one, Ribber. I can't figure out why he is over there pitching - there's enough other things to do.

Beautiful play on the title and OS lyrics! Axelrod whined about all the "politics" in the selection process! That was juicy! Then he follows it up and says, "Not that I'm suggesting ..." What a piece of work! 555 from me!

What Peter Andersson said, except that the 1984 Games in Los Angeles were extraordinarily well-organized, and they even improved the traffic system, putting electronic traffic-counters in the roads and tying all stoplights to a central command post, so that traffic could flow as smoothly as possible.

Agree that having the POTUS waste the prestige of that position to stump for his political hometown was a disgrace -- as was bowing to a foreign monarch (*Absolutely* prohibited by protocol for any US citizen, much less the Prez), etc., etc.

Also agree with Peter about the cheeky Brazilian lasses; as The Daily Show's spoof of a history book said, "Brazil is the world's leading exporter of jiggling butt-cheeks. Butt Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor will still probably "kick butt".

Also responded to Ribberesque humor comment at "Blow Me", with an actual example of same. Oh, and 555.

DKTOS, but LoL at your verse! Nobel jurors could have reduced his carbon footprint by awarding Peace Prize while he was nearby!
