David Feherty, An Idiot for All Seasons

David Feherty is a former professional golfer and currently a golf analyst for CBS Sports. By his own admission, he is a "F-list" celebrity though that didn't stop the D Magazine from inviting Mr. Feherty to write an article welcoming George and Laura Bush to his Preston Hallow neighborhood in Dallas. If his column is meant to be satire, it widely missed that mark. It's offensive if not treasonous. He starts off bemoaning the difficulties faced by the former President by noting that his "two terms must have felt like the rest of the world had inserted the Washington Monument into him and it was his job to heave it out." Sodomizing former Presidents, what a nice touch. But that's nothing. He then goes on to suggest that US soldiers if given the chance would shoot Nancy Pelosi twice before strangling Harry Reid.
From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: 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.
Two bullets for Nancy. One can only imagine where Mr. Feherty would have those bullets go. CBS Sports should relieve Mr. Feherty of his duties immediately. An apology does not suffice. Mr. Feherty is also the author of a book, A Idiot for All Seasons, which I am guessing must be an autobiography.
