South Korean PM the latest to fall to golf's political rampage
While I am no Lee Hae-chan hater, let me just say this – he picked the wrong sport to mess with. Few political pundits would ever have imagined the names Jack Abramoff, Lee Hae-chan and Tom DeLay would be interlinked, but golf made it happen.
More importantly, it’s nice to see a nation shake off a major politician due to something like this. We continually see politicians skate over such nonsense, and I question why?
These are not the days of Caesar or Alexander the Great – the politicians of today bring very little to the table aside from charisma. There are several thousand others who could do their job just as easily. Politicians have been given a privilege to serve their people and when they break laws or disrespect that position, they need to be punished severely.
Golf is doing its part to keep politicians on their toes, and hopefully others will continue to do their part to bring their politicians back to reality. Because if not, you end up with a situation like North Korea’s Kim Jong Il claiming to shoot 11 aces in a round. Golf will get back at him yet, just you watch.
