Great Tournament. Bad Fashion.

It would be like wearing Dockers to the prom. Or a wedding dress to UFC. Or a Toga to a golf tournament. Shouldn’t the ororganizers of the world’s most attended golf tournament have outfits a bit more stylish than something Jar Jar Binks might wear to a Bee Gees Party? The Master’s has green jackets.

All Hail Gordon James!

Can you imagine Arizona conservatives shouting such?

Business vs. Beyonce

Hey Millennials, Wake the Expletive Up! If Obama were Kenny G, we’d be that luscious sax, and we’re being played. Hard. It started with the hip campaign posters. Hope. Change. It looked like the kind of graffiti you’d see on Skid Row when you missed a turn or three in Downtown LA. So edgy. So unexpected for a Presidential Candidate! Then … Read More
