London has won its bid for the 2012 Olympic Games.

The Christian Science Monitor: “Adding to French malaise, London wins Olympics“
Ha. France is living in Jimmy Carter days. The French really need to get over themselves.
Will Franklin gives it his olympian effort at WILLisms.com.
On the sports talk radio this morning, it was speculated that when NY was balloted out, the American network (NBC) throws their weight behind London to insured that Paris doesn’t get the bid.
“Now we just feel like losers in lots of things…”
I guess the French are finally getting it. Open Chirac’s mouth, insert Le Foot.
Even Hillary was publicly stumping for New York to get the Olympic bid. Looks like she doesn’t have much influence with the Olympic commitee.
I ‘m just gald Paris didn’t get it…
Perhaps the IOC members are more fond of haggis than originally thought….
Well, let them eat frog legs!
