Since this is a politics blog with a golf theme the David Feherty comment about Pelosi and Reid would seem a perfect fit. For those who're in the dark here, Feherty is a irreverent golf commentator for CBS who also writes columns for various publications laced with irreverence. Here's the quip that sent the dust flying:
"From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this though," Feherty wrote toward the end of his column. "Despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death."
Pretty brutal. Surely all the troops don't think that way--a lot would probably substitute Reid for Pelosi after his "this war is lost" comment.

Of course the Rathergate network is distancing itself from their employee's observation--not much choice there. And of course the chickenhearts of the PGA Tour are running like scared girls who've just seen a spider, tripping over their skirts at Feherty's exercise of free speech, which the soldiers are fighting for. Free speech like this:
And while I’m on the subject of vice, for my money, Sarah Palin came along too late. She’s waaay better-looking than Dick Cheney, and when she shoots at something, you can bet that at least the damn thing will be dead.
Or this:
I believe in the death penalty, especially for pro-lifers, child molesters, those opposed to gay marriage, and for stupid dancing in the end zone.
Where is the outrage? Actually the real outrage would be the phony troop-supporters over at Soros-funded Media Matters "demanding an apology" from an atheist who stands with them on many issues. All is not forgotten, brownshirts.

Anyway, Sunday is the final round of the Players and its infamous 17th Island green. Here are some memories...
