Honestly, just when you think VANOC can’t do anything dumber than the thing that they just did…
Today’s idiotic move was to get Arnold Schwarzenegger to run in the Torch Relay along the prestigious leg in Stanley Park. VANOC’s CEO John Furlong thinks it’s a terrific to have the Governator, as he has a “great connection” with British Columbia. “I think he will help us to focus attention on some of the things we are doing”
Furlong doesn’t get the irony of having someone who admitted doing steroids to succeed in his “sport”, did more for the sales of the Hummer than any paid ad man and has campaigned against BC’s film industry be a poster boy for Vancouver and the “Green” Olympics?
