No Golf for Bush

CREDIT:

This is hardly the only preposterous aspect of President Bush’s notion of giving up golf because he’s sad about Iraq, but it does seem worth pointing out that he hasn’t given up recreational boating and fishing at his family’s enormous summer estate in Kennebunkport, Maine during the same period. If, as Bush says, “playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal” then what’s the difference between that and his other leisure pursuits?

Meanwhile, it seems he actually gave up golf because of knee trouble a bit after the time he claims to have given it up to respect the troops.
