It takes a lot to anger the Dutch, but NBCs Katie Couric managed to strike a nerve over comments she made during the Opening Ceremonies.
Now, most people just watch the color and pageantry rather than focusing on the announcers, but Courics reasoning for why the Netherlands is so dominant in speedskating stopped everyone. Couric mentioned Amsterdams canals and pointed out that skating is an important mode of transportation when the canals freeze over.
I just got home and have to water the mule. He’s always tired after a ride into town. I’ll read this when I’m done.
Katie`s head is Hollowland where the Douche live.
Years ago, when she broadcast her colonoscopy on TV.
Isn’t she the moron who had a tube with a camera on it stuck up her rear end on live national television?
But I’ll give Couric credit for one thing. At least she didn’t bring up Global Warming
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
She was saving Global Warming for if they lost it would have been the Canals wouldn’t freeze over and they couldn’t practice.
You have to think they are ‘winging’ this crap as no one with any sanity would write this stuff for them - Unless, they ‘weewee’ of the staff on a continuing basis...Then figure they are too dumb to know what they are reading..
‘(BO...Corpse when it should have been Corps..did the teleprompter say that or what? )
You backwoods hick! Here in Indiana we all drive John Deer tractors to work.
How is anything that shallow, talentless, washed-up narcissist says meaningful to anyone? All she has left to attract attention is her unmasked ignorance.She isn’t-and never was- a serious journalist. Just another perky fake face way past her expiration date. She should go do infomercials for ‘anti aging’ cosmetics. She must use a TON.
People like Couric and Mika think they need to tell us what to think. They are really of low intelligence. When Biden told Couric that FDR got on TV after the stock market crash she nodded in agreement.
Every Dutchman will tell you that skating is a cultural and technical and economic example that has been so important to their own tranportation.
Is there a stupider person?
Tell the world farmer boy :)
NBC hires an Asian expert to give historical context to the opening ceremony, and then fires him when he says something historical.
Katie Couric says something stupid about the historical Dutch, and...???
but was incredulous at her stupidity.
At least this time her comment seems to prove she has read at least one book: Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates.
How is it no one has mentioned the Amish yet?
“I heard this story here in Louisiana while I was rowing my pirogue down the bayou to work this morning :)”
Here is West Texas I was riding my horse to town when I heard it. ;) Reminds me of GWB saying “Americans dont want to pick cotton at 105 degrees (Fahrenheit), but there are people who want put food on their familys tables and are willing to do that. We ought to say thank you and welcome them. Is he suggesting we get rid of our mechanical harvesting equipment and import huge crews to pick our cotton? Can you get anymore asinine and out of touch than GWB’s comment and Curic?
BTW, enjoy that crawfish pie and filet gumbo for lunch!
I have not been interested in the Olympics this year. I too think listening to Couric is a big reason. Grating voice. Also I don’t like looking at or listening to the commentator Weir on figure skating. He is too much a caricature and flaming for me.
What an idiot.
