How Dare He!

The President will spend a few hours in Denmark lobbying for the 2016 Olympics in Chicago. Just like the President of Brazil, the Prime Minister of Japan, and the King of Spain for their respective bids.

And the Republican reaction?

"I think at a time of war, I think at a time of recession, at a time where Americans have expressed rather significantly their concerns and frustrations over the course of the spring and summer … this trip, while nice, is not necessary for the president," Steele said in a conference call with reporters Tuesday.

Yes, "time of war" and all that:

BEIJING — Halfway around the world, U.S. President George Bush managed to cap his Olympic experience at a place he calls home: a baseball field…Never before had a U.S. president taken part in an Olympics on foreign land. Bush came and soaked it in for four days.

"Not necessary for the President" – Michael Steele

"At a time of war" [Not really a war to Kissinger if Cambodia isn’t involved]

Personally, I don’t mind the flying to Copenhagen as long as there is also a plan to have certain Democrats in Congress visit the White House for a public option.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
