    Golf Analyst Feherty Sorry for Pelosi Joke in Dallas Magazine

    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.

    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- 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."
    Feherty, a former Ryder Cup player who grew up in Northern Ireland, has gone to Iraq over Thanksgiving the past two years to visit with U.S. troops, and he created a foundation to help wounded soldiers.
    "This passage was a metaphor meant to describe how American troops felt about our 43rd president," Feherty said in a statement. "In retrospect, it was inappropriate and unacceptable, and has clearly insulted Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid, and for that, I apologize. As for our troops, they know I will continue to do as much as I can for them both at home and abroad."
    Feherty has lived in Dallas the past dozen years. Along with working for CBS Sports, he writes a monthly column for Golf magazine and has written four books, the last one titled, "An Idiot for All Season."
    CBS Sports distanced itself from Feherty's writing, saying it was "an unacceptable attempt at humor and is not in any way condoned, endorsed or approved" by the network. The PGA Tour also criticized him for an attempt at humor that "went over the line."
    CBS is not broadcasting The Players Championship this week. The network resumes its PGA Tour coverage next week in San Antonio with the Valero Texas Open.

    This is off the subject, but back in late 2007 I almost got hit by Nancy Pelosi and her driver in Washington, DC. I had the "walk sign" crossing Constitution Ave. and this Black Suburban comes hauling ass, I had to jump to finish my steps across the other side. Nancy Pelosi was sitting shotgun and gave me a dirty look. Well I gave her the finger, and hated her ever since.

    Pelosi's 'possum mug is an insult to Kalifornia, the entire US, and the world in general ! Her politics and her (lack of) common sense is an insult to womanhood world wide including some who look related to tree climbers off way over yonder, which in good taste I shall not pinpoint.

    :lolz::texas:

    Why apologize if the observation is true. Besides it is probably easier to strangle Dingy Harry and OBL than that chicken necked, facelifted, sorry excuse for a human being Pelosofsh!t.

    AND, He (she) Needed Killin' IS a perfectly acceptable defense to a Homicide charge in Texas. Normally they are plead down to Misdemeanor Murder or Discharging a firearm in certain Municipalities. Neither carries more than 1 year in the County Pokey. Most likely it would be simply Disorderly Conduct ($200 fine) for excessive noise. If you use a supressor and they don't scream much you can beat that rap too.

    JK, of course.
