Mr. Trend has an outstanding post that explains what the selection of Rio means in the wider arc of Brazilian history.
With all due respect, however, it's obvious that Trend discounts the fact that a
ACORN Chicago Olympics would have at last clarified the vast scope of Bill Ayers' influence in Obamerica. When we measure the dubious value of Brazilian national pride and economic development against the undiluted joy that seven years of wingnut journamalism would have given us, I don't see how anyone could score the IOC'd decision as a net positive for humankind.
