"Golf needs more strong opinions. Not less."

Golf needs commentators who aren't functionally illiterate.

Yeah, right. Remember how successful Limbaugh was when he was employed to comment on the NFL? We need more informed commentators on golf, not blowhards.

Mr. Baldwin evinces a degree of respect rarely seen anymore, and yapping dogs that deign to espouse opinions about people whose level they will never reach show themselves to be sad, self-important nobodies. Before one casts stones he should examine his own failures. Thanks Chris.

Well here we go again, time to point out to the liberal namecallers exactly what Mr Limbaugh actually SAID about Mcnabb. Mr Limbaugh's assertions were about the sports writers opinions of Mr Mcnabbs talents, not about Mr Mcnabb. I get weary pointing out how the left twists words and events to fit their own little world. And, as usual, the liberal(mike), as all liberals seem forced to do, couldnt respond to an opinion piece without namecalling.......so predictable it becomes boring.

I don't have any problem with someone giving an opinion...but if you hit someone, don't be surprised when others hit back. On our blog (www.digitalgolf.tv/community/), my post said that Limbaugh knows as much about sports as he does about politics...not much. I didn't always feel that way about Rush...but anyone with eyes can see that Wie is a player. If Nike overhypes her, so be it. But she is a player.

Chrissy Baldwin, blah blah blah blah. You're a fourth rate writer who will never achieve anything in the writing world. You know as much about sports as does Rush Limbaugh--namely, ZERO. Chalk up another one for two flabby athlete wannabees. You guys should hook up with that equally famous non-athlete George Will.

I have it on good authority that Chrissy, like George Will, throws like a girl. (But at least George can write.)

Limbaugh's entitled to his opinion, as is Chris Baldwin. And, of course, we're entitled to our opinion of their opinion. Too bad that Rush & Chris seem to think that their opinions should be the last word.

Strength of opinion is meaningless, Chris, meaningless. A strong, wrong opinion remains wrong. A strong, arrogant opinion remains arrogant.

My experience with Limbaugh tells me he's wrong far more often than he's right. I don't know Chris Baldwin well enough to say that about him, but this column certainly makes me wonder.

Just my opinion.

Check out the picture I uploaded of Michelle Wie going ballistic on Baldwin and his goon squad. She's real purrty when she's mad.

sigh........well, here we go again. Lee makes assertion that his "experience" with Mr Limbaugh tells him he is wrong FAR more often than he's right. So lets name some Lee, i prowl this website in so far vain attempts to get liberals to actually back up some of the statements and charges they make about Mr Limbaugh. So far no takers. As far as your assertion that Mr Limbaugh thinks his opinions should be the last word i ask you to give him a call sometime and identify yourself as a liberal, he will put you at the front of the line sir. Rush talks about sports because he has a passion for sports, especially golf and football, his opinions are as valid as anyone elses, thats why they are called OPINIONS. Another of Mr Limbaughs interests is computers and as any regular listener knows, he is a big fan of Macs. Also, if you listen to Mr Limbaughs show you will begin to notice that his ability to speak on any subject is amazing, speaking 15 hours a week with no script, no prompter, and doing so in a very entertaining way. What upsets liberals so much about Mr Limbaugh is that they know in their hearts his analysis of politics and current events, and the motivations of liberals is absolutely correct. This is why they personally attack him, never attacking the issues he discusses.

Rush Limbaugh and Michelle Wie have one thing in common. Neither answer Baldwin's calls.

The pitiful thing is that liberals have to be fair and conservitives can say or do anything they want and immediatly think GOD gave them that right to Kill , to Lie, to discriminate to destroy entire country and people to do whatever they want and IDIIOTS like you just sit there and co-sign that crap. Put on a helmet and go to Iraq why don't you!

hehehe,,,,,,ok, WHO cut off Ron's medications? lol......liberals are so much fun....hehehe. Hey ron, try the socialist nirvana of france, they love understanding, peaceful people like you, willing to give guidance and hope to an oppressed people while they preach the takeover of your country and the beheading of the "infidels". Might be the wrong time to go right about now though, they are busying rioting cause the government is trying to get them to go to work.....hehehe

Actually, Chris is a talented writer. His golf course reviews, for example, are funny and observant. I enjoy reading him when he's on top of his game. The problem is that he suffers from brain cramps when he writes about a) Mademoiselle Wie and b)Rush Limbaugh.

I do like his other writings. If he can go 'Wie-less' for a while, I think his output would be more readable, and he'd regain some respect from his peers and readers.

His griping about her offhand 'sparkly' comment, or of her being aloof about Limbaugh was rather pointless.

Leaving all of the personalities out of this for the moment, I wanted to focus on Michelle Wie's professional record. (Before anyone gets on his/her haunches, I acknowledge that it takes a tremendous amout of talent to reach the LPGA level......and yes, I realize that they all could destroy me on the course.) :-) Despite searching for it, I haven't come across an LPGA tournament win on her part. Despite the lack of a win, she receives an incredible amount of camera time, and general coverage (ESPN sports opinion shows, etc.) that the actual tournament winners do not receive.

I know I'm asking for the impossible here, but if you could take the "Rush Limbaugh" personality out of this dynamic, isn't it really true that she is a "triumph of marketing?" In the absence of any victories, and in the presence of vast press coverage what else can you really call it?
