    Joke gone bad?

    I don't think so.

    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.

    "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."

    Oh well, apologize and press on if that's what has to happen.

    Sometimes the truth isn't very funny.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Agreed. I don't think he had to apologize at all. I think they are the ones who need to apologize to the Military members who they are screwing over by going along with the Obamanations defense budget cuts.

    It's an interesting joke to say the least. I suppose it can be taken way out of context if you are one of the involved parties. But to apologize, maybe!

    LoL, I think David Feherty sees things how they are and tells it how it is. But seriously... it was a joke... people need to lighten up.

    Meanwhile, left wing comic, Wanda Sykes, does her "routine" for the White House press corp dinner, with Obama in attendance and calls for the killing of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, as well as G. Bush and Dick Chaney, and the President laughs and the media makes nothing of it.
    Double standard..............of course.
    You're seeing a time where the media is so corrupt as to be laughed at,
    they are a tool of the left and nothing more.
    It's time fair minded people stand up for the truth, or there won't be any.

    Maybe the apology is what was meant to be a joke!

    Obama should appoint a 'humor' tzar, to declare what is and isn't funny. Violators will be added to the HSA domestic terror list.
    This is one of the comments from the article.

    I guess the joke I heard about Marine marksmanship being really bad because they fired a 21 gun salute and missed ( insert polititians name here) will need an appology as well.

    Naw they don't need to apologize about that JoJo. Veterans are already on the DHS terror list remember?

    Veterans, gun owners, conservatives tagged national security threats.
