Okay, I rarely mention MO. Mostly because I can’t stand her, but also because there are so many MO bashing blogs out there that do a far better job than I can. But I just can’t let her bizarre speech in Copenhagen go un-commented upon. Here it is:
Carl Lewis is only three years older than MO, right? So why on earth was she sitting on her dad’s lap when she was in her twenties? I mean, really?!
You could tell listening to the dead silence that greeted each of her “applause pauses” that there was no way in the world we (or as the Os cast it, they) were going to get the Olympic games. It was particularly evident when she dropped her “man who knows something about change” intro of BO. She must have been horrified that raucous cheers and songs of praise didn’t fill the hall at that one.
Her speech was all about her, and that’s the basic problem with both Os. They don’t get that the world is increasingly often laughing at them, either right in their faces or behind their backs. They are completely deaf to all criticism, even constructive criticism, and that arrogance is exactly the quality that most of the world detests about America. So while the Os run around the world apologizing for our country and explaining how fabulous they are, what wonders they perform, they are actually reinforcing that stereotype of Americans as self-centered, arrogant, and naive. It’s shameful, and it’s becoming rather embarrassing.
[Cat claw warning] And finally, what on earth is that shiny, wrinkly, banana yellow outfit she has on? With an enormous bow at her enormous waist? Giant bows belong on little girls’ dresses, certainly not on a grown woman. I repeat my call for tax payer money to be spent on a steam iron for MO, and a mirror wouldn’t hurt, either. Her clothes are always so ill-fitting, with the fabric pulled here and bunched there and pooching out in all the wrong places that I want to submit her as a candidate for What Not to Wear. Stacy and Clinton would have her wearing the right size and proper shapes, colors, and patterns (she just LOVES the sofa and curtain prints, doesn’t she?) for her build. And for her position as First Lady of this country.
I find it amusing that the left is somehow, through bizarre intellectual and logical gymnastics, blaming George W. Bush for Chicago not getting the Olympics. Hell, they need to make Bush-blaming an Olympic event, it certainly takes some extraordinary leaps of logic and fantastical high dives to pull that one off.
