Badminton to the Bone–or, A Shuttlecock and Bull Story

Those were the two titles that occurred to me regarding news that (count ‘em) eight badminton players have been disqualified from the Olympics for trying to throw early matches in order to draw weaker opponents in later rounds.

I am frankly appalled and outraged to learn that badminton…

… is an Olympic sport. What’s next, beer pong?

We clearly need a bipartisan investigation into how this travesty could have occurred. I nominate Meghan McCain and Anthony Weiner to lead this vital inquiry.

    And they dumped baseball and kept badminton … double the outrage!

    We need Weiner and John McCain if we’re going to have a cock-and-bull-moose investigation.
