No Olympic rings for you. Next!
Condoleezza Rice, who failed spectacularly as National Security Advisor (remember 9/11, “Bin Laden determined to attack inside the U.S“?) and is one of the architects of our sojourn into Iraquagmire has volunteered to help out New York City in attempting to acquire the 2012 Olympics.
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is offering herself as a personal ambassador for New York’s bid to host the 2012 Olympics.
Rice will appear with New York Governor George Pataki and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at a rally on the steps of City Hall on Tuesday.
It is a send-off rally for New York’s emissaries to the International Olympic Committee, which is to choose a host city July 6 at a meeting in Singapore.”New York is an internationally recognized symbol of unity, hope and opportunity and Secretary Rice believes it is the perfect place for the Olympics,” Rice senior adviser Jim Wilkinson said Friday.
I assume that she’ll pitch Rikers as an excellent location for an athletes village for any participants from the Middle East.
I’d hold off on printing up those NYC2012 t-shirts for right now.
