It's Sudden Death; and It's So Quiet We Can Hear Our Heartbeat Thing

Dear America,

wow.  we are in one sticky wicket, aren't we?

as the rhetoric ramping up the arguments against the so-called "establishment" versus real tea party conservatives continues...and strangely enough...the loudest cries coming from the well-established GOP candidates.

It's been happening for weeks now -- Gingrich, Santorum, Paul -- all raising concerns against one guy, the favorite, the one who looks as if he's got it all tied up right now.


anyone see the Farmer's Insurance Torrey Pines golf tournament?

truth is, I only watch this kind of stuff at the tail end...tuning in somewhere around the 17th hole on the last day.  How anyone can watch golf for three days straight [especially on T.V.] is beyond me; but hey, to each his own, right?  But it would behoove me to mention, I could have just moved myself off the couch and showed up personally to watch the sights, as this Taylor-made extravaganza happens to go on right in my own backyard.

and let me tell you...it has been beautiful for the event this year; it's not always the case...for some reason the universe sends in the clouds and drizzle year in and year out.  But this year....OH   MY   GOODNESS.  it was simply gorgeous. the great pacific was glistening. the torrey pines were smiling.  the egrets were wondering why their favorite watering hole was so crowded.  but I digress.

anyway...Brandt Snedeker was packing up his nine iron when something crazy occurred.  Kyle Stanley choked on the eighteenth hole.  Snedeker was called back to play a sudden death.

They tied it up in the first go round; then, playing the second hole in sudden death [at the 16th hole, i think] it appeared like it was all over for Snedeker for a second time, as he landed somewhere in the rough, down an embankment, and more or less, might as well consider it over the river and through the woods.

but noooooo.
that wasn't the way the universe was gonna let it go down.

long story short, Stanley met his match [even if only in his own mind].

Snedeker came back in sudden death to win the whole thing.

to watch it all unfold right before your eyes, unbelievable.  but what do I know, right?

But back to the politics of pulling bogeys and birdies on the campaign trail --

you know what makes this girl crazy?  listening to a candidate who one day calls the favorite 'a lying, capitalist pig...  who did nothing to warrant his 21 million dollar payday last year' [or something like that...and maybe not all in the same breath] -- to the same guy saying something like, 'I'll endorse him if I have to.'

That's just it.
Americans who truly love this country will come around, even in sudden death, and endorse whichever GOP candidate remains...BECAUSE we all know the country is toast if Obama gets re-elected. 

[and even in spite of people like Sarah Palin calling on Floridians to vote for Newt just to 'annoy a liberal'...which is normally not a good enough reason to vote for anybody...just sayin']

all I want to ask Sarah is how can you, of all people, endorse a Newt after he has spent weeks bashing capitalism and the very free market that made Romney --  the business man and millionaire, and most likely, a damn good golfer -- who he is today?

Just where is her critical, eagle eye picking Newt's pot shots apart, fair and balanced?  And how in the world does Newt get a pass from being considered part of 'the establishment'?   For goodness sakes, he has made a career of what, forty or fifty years, in government, working steadfastly for the republican party!   He's like the poster boy of the GOP establishment, much like Tiger is to GOlf (well, maybe not so much now).

but it's not just her -- it seems like every time we turn around, we are tripping over another conservative pundit popping their head up to be the next Newt caddy. 

The reality is, every single one of them (of those remaining in the GOP lineup) are established politicians of the republican kind. they are kinda all the same, but different.

Stanley or Snedeker; Gingrich or Romney; does it really matter?


Sure, for Snedeker it matters -- but for the rest of the golf world, not so much; it goes into the history books as 'it wasn't me.'  But more than that, GOLF, in the macro, goes on just the same as it ever was.

The thing is, according to me, G, America is in sudden death.  And we can't afford going on in the same way, same as it ever was.

Against the well-established Obama administration -- a guy who, according to a CNN article from way back in 2010 'plays more [golf] than Bush'...a guy who, as of LAST summer, totaled 75 [golf] outings   -- ANY one of the foursome remaining will do just fine. [key word there is FOURSOME. isn't it crazy that the media has decided to stop talking about the other two?  it's not over, till it's over]

Which one is the very best for changing the status quo?

It's early.  We still have the back nine to play out.

It is the media, who would have us believe that Obama has got this thing all tied up [but that discussion must be saved for another day].

a thought to leave you with.......

"every secret is told, 
every crime is punished, 
every virtue rewarded, 
every wrong redressed, 
in silence and certainty.'  

Ralph Waldo Emerson

so quiet, you can hear your heart beat at the eighteenth hole

Make it a Good Day, G
