A Very Politically Incorrect Victory Lap

Americans Misti May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh took gold a few minutes ago in women's beach volleyball at the Beijing Olympics, beating the premier Chinese team, repeating their accomplishment at the 2004 Athens Olympics, the first ever to repeat for gold in this event. They've not lost a set in more than a year.

What was interesting was their comments after their victory. First, Kerri Walsh pointedly said "Thanks, Mr. President," doubtless referring to President George W. Bush's famous visit with the women and the photograph taken with them, in their very skimpy uniforms.

Then, asked what was next for them, both women basically said that they wanted to go home and make babies.

One can only imagine the savaging they will take from the moonbatosphere for these variations from acceptable public discourse.

As for me, way to go, ladies. You may be the best ever in your event. You've made us all proud.
