Hugo Chávez Is Right: Let's Get Rid of Some Golf Courses

With the Masters in full swing, it's good to remember how bad golf can be.


At the Masters tournament this weekend, the 26-year-old Venezuelan phenomenon Jhonattan Vegas is making his tournament debut. But socialist Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez certainly won't be tuning in. He hates golf.

"Let's leave this clear: Golf is a bourgeois sport," Chávez said during a live broadcast of his TV show in 2009.

When the Private Eye reporter noted that one of Assange's accused, Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger, wasn't actually Jewish, Assange told him Rusbridger, whose brother-in-law is Jewish, is "sort of Jewish." Assange, who later in the interview asked the Private Eye reporter to "forget the Jewish thing," allegedly said he believes Jewish journalists are out deprive WikiLeaks of Jewish donations and support.
