A group in Washington is trying to bring the Olympics to the capital in 2024. The city's journalists could barely hold in their excitement:
Karen Tumulty, Washington Post:
Annie Lowrey, New York Times:
Dylan Byers, Politico:
Ezra Klein, Washington Post and Bloomberg View:
Chris Moody, Yahoo News:
Jackie Kucinich, In Play:
And then they embraced it, starting #DCOlympicEvents on Twitter. If Washington does indeed make the cut, here are six new events we'd like to see. Start training.
- Red-Tape Hurdle
- Filibuster Marathon
- Lobbyist Greco-Roman Wrestling for the Check
- Synchronized Stump Speeches
- Partisan-Aisle Long Jump
- Uneven-Income-Distribution Bars
