Some Joy in America's Loss
I have to admit I feel a small twinge of glee that the grandstanding of a certain Senator from New York who appears to have started an early presidential campaign failed to sway the IOC. New York would have done a fine job I'm sure, but the Senator's loss in any argument is perversely satisfying. Alas, all she touches does not turn to gold.
I reserve the most joy, however, for the defeat of the Hereditary Enemy, France, in her bid to host the games. Perhaps Monsieur le Prime Minister underestimated the IOC's fondness for haggis.
