Maureen Dowd zings Obama with the ‘Golf Address’


obama-golfsIt seems pigs have learned how to fly, at least for the time being.

Maureen Dowd — a New York Times columnist I rarely ever agree with — shredded Barack Obama in a column she titled “The Golf Address.”  And it’s an instant classic in my humble opinion…

She starts:

FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL.

She continues:

I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo Mourning and a part-owner of the Boston Celtics. Hillary and I agreed when we partied with Vernon Jordan up here, hanging out with celebrities and rich folks is fun.

Now we are engaged in a great civil divide in Ferguson, which does not even have a golf course, and that’s why I had a “logistical” issue with going there. We are testing whether that community, or any community so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure when the nation’s leader wants nothing more than to sink a birdie putt.

And there’s more.  Much more.  And yes, you really need to go read this.

Exit question: How long before liberals attack Dowd with their trademark hate?
