Obama's Golf Dream Team: Bring on the Lezzies!

Obama's Golf Dream Team: Bring on the Lezzies!

Earlier this month President Obama made some sports news. It seems that the New York Times found that he's got a regular basketball game going in the White House and women have been left off all the lineups. I can understand you want to play it careful, so I've got your next tee-off group. Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, Democrat from Wisconsin and a toaster-toting lesbian. Match her with Barney Frank, gay Democrat from Massachusetts, and throw in Kay Bailey Hutchison, gun toting Republican Senator from Texas.

Earlier this month President Obama made some sports news. It seems that the New York Times found that he's got a regular basketball game going in the White House and women have been left off all the lineups.

Oops.

The Washington Post caught the sports' fever and found out that since he's been in office he's played golf 23 times -- all with the boys.

Ouch.

It made Lynn Sweet from the Chicago Sun Times ask this question:

"Is there a frat boy or 'boys club' atmosphere in the White House? Yes, there is, I've been told by a few high-level female staffers who are aware that at the highest levels in the White House, Obama huddles most intensely with men. Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett is the exception."

After that, both conservatives and liberals had something to gossip about because even though Obama called the whole thing "bunk," guess who came to that 24th golf game...

A woman. Melody Barnes, his chief domestic policy adviser.

Now I ask you, what does all this mean? I've scrolled through all the Capital Hill Women and I've got to say there's not a lot that look like avid hoops' players, but golf... I'd say there are some players in that group.

So why no invitations? Maybe the First Lady doesn't want the Leader of the Free World chatting it up with another woman on the links. You know, presidential indiscretions have been known to happen before, but I doubt that's the problem here.

This is what I think:

You can take the president out of the male, but you can't take the male out of the president --which brings up a great rant on how we need a woman president, but I'd just be preaching to the choir. I will say this, though. You got caught President Obama. Now learn from your mistake. Maybe "bunk" is how you feel about it, but that's not the way women feel--now or historically.

I can understand you want to play it careful, so I've got your next tee-off group. Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, Democrat from Wisconsin and a toaster-toting lesbian. Match her with Barney Frank, gay Democrat from Massachusetts, and throw in Kay Bailey Hutchison, gun toting Republican Senator from Texas. Just watch her squirm.

Tammy Baldwin

Kay Bailey Huchison

Now that's what I call a solid foursome. Everyone can sleep well that night and maybe even wake up with some great ideas about Healthcare.

Think about it President Obama. Those people aren't competing for the love of the game. They're competing for your attention. Keep sending women the right signals.
