You knew this was coming

"Some Chicago officials say anti-American resentment likely played a role in Chicago's Olympic bid dying in the first round Friday. President Obama could not undo in one year the resentment against America that President Bush and others built up for years, they said."

-- Chicago Sun-Times, Oct. 3, 2009

Reverend Jesse "Shakedown" Jackson inevitably chimed in: "The world had a very bad taste in its mouth about us. But there was such a turnaround after last November. The world now feels better about America and about Americans. That's why I thought the president's going was the deal-maker."

Deal maker? Sorry, Rev, but believe it or not, the whole world doesn't play by Chicago Rules.

Ha, ha. Maybe the world (or at least the selection committee supposedly representing it) had one of those Jacksonian (Jesse, that is) moments last week in which they wanted to cut the liar-in-chief's n*ts out for all of his efforts, so they simply took the next best option.

How soon some of us seem to forget.
