Like everything else in the U.S. in 2008, Lefties will dominate golf
From time to time this blog edges into other subjects, often with an either substantial, or occasionally totally inconsequential connection to golf. It’s not a completely uncommon occurrence in the world of golf blogging. Take into account Paris Hilton. She has as much connection to the game of golf as, say, Paris Hilton, yet she still managed to get into golf blogs aplenty, and even in some golf-themed political fundraising.
So while I understand that there is a small coterie of readers out there who want golf and golf only, the general consensus here is that golfers are well-rounded individuals that are interested in many subjects, and often enjoy seeing how golf relates to said subjects.
Take politics, for example. While some posts emanating from this blog have had political commentary, generally leaning to the left, the thinking is that golfers are astute people who keep up with world events and don’t mind a golf blogger combining golf and politics. One would think it would stimulate discussion, which on occasion it does.
More often than not, however, the majority of said politics-golf posts end up with a bulldozer load of logical fallacies and insults lacing the comment section.
And while that’s Ok, I’m a big boy and have no problems with critical comments, I’ve decided I need to slow down on golf blogging with political referencing, and focus more on the games and the players. I’m sure long-time readers will either be thrilled, or completely non-plussed.
“The stars seem to be aligned perfectly for Tiger’s most dominant year yet. It will be a year that will bring him the unthinkable - yet seemingly inevitable - Grand Slam,” writes the brash, young Tucker.
Tucker’s proclamation led one reader to reply: “Excuse me but I think you are forgetting about a person named PHIL MICKELSON who will be Healthy in 2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
I agree completely with the reader, and, in fact, predict that the most Tiger will be able to hope for in 2008 is two major titles, as Mickelson will take home two.
It may sound like a bold prediction, but I have confidence in Lefty for many reasons. He’s healthy. He’s at his peak both physically and maturity-wise, and he has something to prove.
Plus, let’s face it: In 2008, Lefties will win just about everything you can imagine.

The problem with your "political commentary" is that it's little different from what a child could render. It has the intellectual depth of a toddler throwing a tantrum in a sandbox. If you want people to ever believe that you're something more than a wanna-be jock, you'll have to go beyond the "four legs good, two legs bad" narrative.
