Obama Grandstands About the Masters

For some reason, this is being treated as a remarkable revelation:

The White House revealed Thursday that President Barack Obama believes women should be admitted to the all-male Augusta National Golf Club, site of the Masters golf tournament.

Once a year, the Augusta National Golf Club’s men-only membership policy is turned into a political issue by those lawmakers who want to demonstrate how egalitarian and enlightened they are for opposing gender discrimination in the 21st century, and then the subject is dropped shortly after the Masters tournament. That’s mainly because nothing can be done about it. As outdated as Augusta National’s policy may be, it’s still the club’s prerogative.
