Not here, not now

Looks like the US will not be hosting the 2016 Olympics, after all.

I hear Madrid's a pretty nice town.

. . . and the winner is

Rio de Janeiro!

time to start saving my pennies for my South American trip.

UPDATE
: Josh notes that conservatives are absolutely gleeful. Even Reuters headlined their story "IOC Rebuffs Obama."

Guess nobody noticed who the President of Brazil is.

  • My money's on Rio....and I think rightfully so.

  • You're probably right. With London hosting in 2012, and with SA never having hosted the games, Rio makes more sense.

    But Madrid has supertrains!

  • Olympics brought to the U.S.:

    Mitt Romney 1
    Barack Obama 0

    On a related note, snowmobile races won by spouses:

    Sarah Palin 4
    Barack Obama 0

    I think we're looking at a one-term president...

  • I can't believe there's this much noise being made about the Olympics. The Olympics. Seriously. Didn't they go out of fashion at the end of the cold war?
