'Chicago is out? . . . Chicago is out?'

Like Allah says, "Comedy gold."

Me on Twitter:

I'm thinking the influence of the Vlaams Belang-dominated Belgian delegation to the IOC was decisive.

Between the Flemish Menace and ultranationalist fascist sympathizers like Pamela Geller, Chicago was doomed.

If you don't get that joke, don't worry. If you do get that joke, I apologize for the coffee spew all over your computer.

UPDATE: The suspiciously Flemish-looking Michelle Malkin says to "prepare for recriminations." Yeah, liberals are already trying to blame Republicans, but if I live to be 56, I'll be enjoying the recriminations with bikini-clad cuties on the beach in Rio, covering the 2016 Olympics. (Just warning regular readers, so you can get ready for the Mother Of All Tip-Jar Rattles.)

Speaking of bikini-clad cuties, Dan Riehl advises, "Next time, send Sarah Palin." Or, as the former Alaska governor is now known to Charles Johnson, Sharmuta and the LGF gang, "a close associate of Vlaams Belang sympathizer Stacy McCain."


  1. Hark, what's that I hear? 'Tis the sound of a whole lotta gas escaping from the Obama balloon...

  2. That entitlement will get ya every time.

  3. I’m not surprised… Chicago is a toilet, LOL

    What a shame the racketeering scum of the Chicago Machine won’t have this windfall to skim-off of

    ha ha ha ha ha

  4. Flemish Menace? This looks more like the work of the Walloon Peril.

  5. RIP the power of the "O"

    CNN once again proves its a joke.

  6. recriminations?
    no, just campaign fodder for the upcoming elections.
    the GOP never fails to amaze. I love it!

  7. Y4E,

    Actually you may be on to something.

    I mean the support for the Olympics among Chicagoans almost reached 50%. If it's that high there its support must be positively sky high elsewhere because, after all, if there is one city that all Americans are proud of it's Chicago.

    I mean it's not like the GOP can point to more pressing concerns (Obama's lack of engagement with Gen. McChrystal), or the likely corruption of Daley and friends, or the fact that the US has already had the Olympics more than any other nation.

    Why, the right would be sitting ducks if the left trotted this out next year.
