Rush Limbaugh to join TravelGolf.com as writer

By Tim McDonald, Contributor

We here in America need our leaders - men of vision, men of integrity, men of action. Now more than ever in this time of war and conflict, we need men who can lead.

Forget the panty-waist doubters, the pundits, the dissenters. This is a dire time that calls for action, not for thinking. A time for boldness, not for introspection or protest.

Fellow citizens, I give you Rush Limbaugh. A man who "gets it." A man who, like Bill O'Reilly in his "no-spin zone," tells it like it is, not like the politically-correct wackos who tell you how it should be.

That's why today, I am announcing that Rush Limbaugh will be joining TravelGolf.com as a golf columnist and blogger. We are honored to add Mr. Limbaugh to our staff of outstanding golf writers.

People ask: What does Rush Limbaugh have to do with golf? Well, maybe you haven't been following the news. Rush knows his sports as well as he knows his politics.

As a commentator for ESPN, Limbaugh said of the Philadelphia Eagles' Pro Bowl quarterback, Donovan McNabb: "I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. ... He got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."

That observation was right on. Of course, Limbaugh was forced to resign when the politically correct wrongfully accused him of racism. Nothing could be further from the truth. Rush would have said the same thing had McNabb been white, Asian, gay or gay-Asian.

Then there was the Michelle Wie incident. Limbaugh, in an exclusive interview with TravelGolf.com, called Wie "a triumph of marketing." He went on to add, "If she really wants to play with the men, it's fine. Let her try for a Tour card. But, now it's a marketing tool they're using to build her up to a level much greater than her actual accomplishments. At some point, she has to get some wins."

That shut up even the Wie Warriors, those fanatics who have fallen victim to the marketing machine and insist their heroine is the best, no matter what her record. Of course, Limbaugh had to say on his show that he likes Wie, to fend off the warriors and other politically correct dunderheads.

To whet your appetite, I took a look at some of Rush's draft blogs to offer this sneak peak:

• "The media builds up Tiger because of his background. There is a little social concern in golf, and the media wants a minority to succeed so badly, they've blown his accomplishments out of proportion. I mean, this guy is two minorities, black and Asian, so he's perfect for the liberals and femi-Nazis."

• "Per-Ulrik Johansson - now here's a guy the media ignores, just because he's from Sweden or someplace, which is about as white as you can be. How much do you read in The New York Times about Per-Ulrik? I'll tell you: nothing. You think he'd be ranked No. 626 in the world if he got more publicity from the liberal media? You bet he wouldn't. This guy could challenge Tiger if only the media would allow it."

• "I read somewhere that the PGA Tour is, like, 90 percent Republican. That's why I golf, and that's why I play in events like the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. You know why the Tour is dominated by Republicans? Liberals would say it's because they're mostly rich, white guys who think like our beloved president and benefit from his economic policies. That's only partially true. The real reason is they can't dance, something you'd never catch a Republican doing."

• "OxyContin? I thought it was for treating acne."

Rest assured, this is just a small sampling of the wit and wisdom of Rush Limbaugh, a man who is trying to pull the country together, if only the liberals would join our lock-step march. Enjoy ...
