I normally don't touch politics; it's much too polarizing and in the end... for me at least... it always seems to come down to the lesser of two evils. And I hate that, so I just don't do it. Generally.
However as the candidates debate and the primaries approach and the Caucus Countdowns... count down, I find myself drawn in. So I did the logical thing considering my passion for golf and the fact that this is, after all, a golf blog; I golf-googled all the leading candidates. (The simple formula is: canditate's name, space, golf). And...I came up with very little.
Oh, I got lots of Cafe Press golf shirts. The Hillary shirts included a "Hot for Hillary", a "Bill Clinton for for First Lady" and an "Anyone but her '08". One Fred Thompson golf shirt had "Fred '08" underneath an image of a large gun. Looked like a 9mm Glock to me. Disconcerting, to say the least. Then there was one that said "Mitt Happens 2008" with an image of a Ken doll on it, Oh, excuse me, that was actually an image of Mitt Romney. "Obama '08"... "McCainiacs for McCain"... "Ron Paul Fo' Shizzel, 2008". If you can imagine it, it's there.
Lot's of Golf shirts, yes, but not much about candidates actually playing golf...or having played it in the past. I found an image of Bill Clinton swinging a driver, in a really cute golf sweater, but Hillary was no where in sight, and none of the other candidates seemed to have much of a connection with the game either. That is till I typed in Rudy Giuliani.
It seems Rudy is quite passionate about golf, as is his wife
Anyway, if anyone has golf news about any of the other candidates I'd love to hear about it. And I'm pretty sure my readers would too. Right?
