Take golf out of politics and take politicians out of golf
After more than a week of hearing golf relentlessly disparaged, I feel it’s time someone spoke up.
As has been reported everywhere by everyone, President Bush was playing golf while Hurricane Katrina was busy making New Orleans into a giant jacuzzi of death. Now, the hardcore golfers amongst us look at this and privately think, “Hey, he had a tee time,” but please remember these people are in the minority.
While I feel that it’s vital to point out that golf isn’t the issue here, I also believe it’s time for a nation-wide ban on presidential golfing. I mean, it’s not really helping anyone, right? Does anyone take up golf because they saw a president duck-hook the ball into a gallery? I’m even willing to go further on this and demand all politicians immediately dumpster their clubs.
It’s time to take golf out of this national debate. The U.S. currently has a president that’s down a World Trade Center and New Orleans in just about five years, and golf played no part in either situation. It really all just comes down to this:
Don’t hate the game, hate the player.

Osama is in a hole somewhere hiding, like all the others. On the run. Let's keep them that way, focused on the hiding. My .02.
You realy have a twisted thought process, see a shrink.
