08-08-08 is supposedly the luckiest day of the century for the Chinese.
It was for lanky stud Michael Phelps, who's on his way to his 8-medal goal. His relay team won the gold by a fraction of a second to France.
Not so lucky for athletes who wore smog masks like normal Chinese citizens. They were forced to apoligize under cloudy toxic skies.
Not so lucky for the family of an American coach who was murdered in a strange incident by a Chinese man who leapt (or was pushed?) to his death afterward. The assailant's identity was unknown (or made to disappear?)
The victims were Todd and Barbara Bachman, parents of former Olympian Elisabeth Bachman, who is married to men's volleyball coach Hugh McCutcheon. Bachman's father was killed.
The assailant also stabbed and injured a Chinese female tour guide with the Americans. He then committed suicide by throwing himself off a 130-foot-high balcony of the ancient landmark the Americans were visiting, the 13th century Drum Tower, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.
Oh, and those amazing fireworks over Bejing? They were partially faked. Yep, faked. Just one of many frauds from the massive country to which NBC is bowing and scraping, and in complete complicity. After all, China owns a lot of our debt, all of which was created under the Bush regime.
And what of Chimpoleon and his visit? War broke out in Georgia as Russia invaded, and what did Chimpy do? Sit petulantly at the stadium, yuck it up with bikini-clad women volleyball players, and generally make an ass of himself, so much so that one Republican Iraq War vet has turned against the GOP. A little too late, bub.
Oh, well. It is all about the athletes, even the allegedly pre-pubescent female Chinese gymnastics team. The Chinese cheat?
That would be inauspicious. And you won't read about that, or this, in Bejing.
Just remember, major corporate sponsors are: Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Snickers, General Electric, Kodak, Panasonic, Samsung, Visa, Johnson & Johnson, Adidas, UPS and Budweiser. I bet you can think of a fine substitute for every one of them.
More Chimpy being all LOLBush here.
