A second American reporter was beheaded in a video released by ISIS militants Tuesday. Steven Sotloff, a Florida native who went to high school at Kimball Union Academy in New Hampshire, was freelancing for Time and other publications before being captured in Syria a year ago.
This led to criticism of the manner in which President Barack Obama is handling the situation.
“The real good news is that Obama got up and down on 14, short-sided himself and made that shot,” Minihane said.
Callahan noted that information about presidents’ golf games in the past has been well known, but Obama has been secretive about his performance on the links.
“We hear all about Obama playing golf, 193 rounds now since he’s been in office, do you know anything about his golf game?” Callahan said. “Do you know his handicap? ‘¦ We know nothing about Obama’s golf game except that he plays in the middle of the worst crises the world is having. Wouldn’t you like to know? I know they’re not going to report it if he cheats, but wouldn’t you like to know if he’s any good?”
Replied Minihane: “I don’t really care.”
Said Dennis: “A texter makes a good point: If Obama were really, really good at golf, we’d know all about it.”
– Three men were arrested a weeding reception on a boat in Pittsburgh early Monday morning after a brawl broke out, apparently instigated when the groom behaved inappropriately with a waitress.
According to KDKA, 33-year-old Mark Williams touched the waitress and tried to pour alcohol down her throat even after she told him she was pregnant. When the boat returned to the dock, the woman’s boyfriend confronted the groom and a brawl ensued. Williams, his brother — who is a Pennsylvania State Trooper — and another man in the wedding party were arrested and face various charges.
“As you know, John, if you’ve had a couple of drinks and a pregnant girl walks by, you can’t keep your hands off her. That is your fetish,” Minihane said, adding to Dennis: “This was at a wedding, on the cruise at the reception, he had some drinks, got into an argument with his wife of a few hours and then grabbed a pregnant waitress, and then it all started — which I assumed was going to happen at your wedding. I was disappointed. It was low key.”
