ESPN Buttkissers Scold Paul Azinger for Goofing on Obama

Like most of the nation, golfer and ESPN analyst has little use for Barack Obama. He dared to express his opinion on Twitter Thursday.
Facts: Potus has played more golf this month than I have: I have created more jobs this month than he has: #Marthasvineyard
Well, the bumkissing rumpswabs at ESPN, who fawn shamelessly over Obama as he embarrasses himself each year with his March Madness idiocy, have admonished Azinger.
ESPN is coming down on Paul Azinger for mocking President Barack Obama on Twitter. The golf analyst tweeted Friday that the Commander-in-chief plays more golf than he does -- and that Azinger has created more jobs this month than Obama has.

ESPN has 'reminded" Azinger his venture into political punditry violates the company's updated social network policy for on-air talent and reporters issued yesterday.

"Paul's tweet was not consistent with our social media policy, and he has been reminded that political commentary is best left to those in that field," spokesman Andy Hall told Game On! in a statement.
It's OK for them to slobber over Obama, but one of their employees dares to make a joke and that's forbidden.

You know, I think we have left "political commentary" "to those in that field" for far too long, and it has screwed us up. On the other hand, Obama has requested we all be political, all the time, and organize the community. So what is ESPN's beef?
