(Newser) – The home of the Masters has invited former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first women in green jackets when the club opens for a new season in October. Both women have accepted. The invitations end a 10-year controversy that began when former club chairman Hootie Johnson said the club would not be pressured “at the point of a bayonet” to change its all-male membership. Augusta National chairman Billy Payne described Monday’s announcement as a “joyous occasion” as he took the rare step of confirming its latest two members. He says it is a “significant and positive time” at the club. Augusta typically does not discuss membership.
I’m so rattled by this. I mean if Hootie Johnson can’t hold steadfast against crazy feminazis then what kind of chance do the rest of us have? Like if Hootie can’t handle Martha then how is Dave Portnoy supposed to handle Anna Siembor? It throws the whole balance of power out of whack. Today it’s ladies tees at Augusta, tomorrow it’s Barstool without misogynistic shit all over the place. A scary thought. So much for a tradition unlike any other. Now it’s a tradition like every where else in America where we’re afraid to offend even a single person. Sad day indeed.
PS – does Hootie know Condoleezza Rice is black? Jesus bro ever heard of easing into new rules? A woman is one thing. But a black woman? You know some old racist South Carolinian redneck is gonna have a fucking heart attack when he sees Condoleezza strutting that ass on the back 9.
