Hey Whitey, where's your hat?

What is it about Bill Clinton and Australian golf?

In 1997, Clinton tore a tendon in his knee after a tumble at Aussie golfer Greg Norman’s home.

Then earlier this week he was snubbed when attempting to squeeze in a round at Medway Golf Club in Australia.

My favorite part of the story is the reaction of a couple of club members.

"We can't deprive the paying members of their golf, even for an ex-president," said 62-year-old member Wendy Alley. "But it would have been a buzz for the ladies. There's no Monica Lewinsky here -- we're better."

Ms Alley's regular golf partner, Lorraine Bramley, agreed: "We would have played with him -- golf, that is."

I’m sorry. I have this mental picture of Clinton emulating the Bill Murray role in “Caddyshack.” You know the scene. Within the first 5-10 minutes of the movie where Murray’s character is making perverted statements about the ladies at the green while moving the ball washer up and down.

The resemblance is uncanny!
