Golf Analyst Appoligizes For Joke About Killing Pelosi & Reid. Will Obama Do The Same?
Posted by Casey on May 11, 2009
David Feherty, CBS golf analyst, cracked a joke in a magazine recently about Pelosi and Reid being killed by US troops in an elevator. He has now been forced to apologize for such a gruesome joke about the deaths of prominent Americans.
CBS Sports golf analyst David Feherty apologized Sunday to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for a morbid joke that went bad in a Dallas magazine.
Feherty, one of the most popular golf analysts for his sharp wit and self-deprecating humor, was among five Dallas residents who wrote for “D Magazine” on former President George W. Bush moving to Dallas.
“From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this though,” Feherty wrote toward the end of his column.
“Despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Osama bin Laden, there’s a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death.”
This apology makes me wonder if our president, and Wanda Sykes will apologize for the exact same thing. Recently Wanda Sykes cracked a joke at a presidential event calling Rush Limbaugh a terrorist, drug addict, and wishing for Rush’s death via kidney failure.
There is really no difference between the two situations. Some will make issue with it being the president laughing at the death of a political opponent, and others will make issue with Feherty going after the leaders of both houses of congress. Regardless, if one is forced to apologize … the others should as well.
UPDATE: The White House has finally caught on that the president behaved like an ass.
