Florida’s Grande Oaks Golf Club played host to a famous comedy of errors. Also, “Caddyshack” was filmed there over 30 years ago.

From ABC News:

Despite sporadic fall showers and the muggy Florida sun, President Barack Obama hit the greens Saturday with a former NBA star at the ritzy golf club where “Caddyshack” was filmed.

In South Florida for a trio of fundraisers the night before, Obama traveled north from Miami to Fort Lauderdale, where he joined former basketball player Alonzo Mourning at the Grande Oaks Golf Club.

The name of the private, 18-hole course has changed over the years, but “Caddyshack” fans will remember it as the site where Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and a rambunctious gopher got into all kinds of antics in the 1980 comedy flick.

Suddenly the universe makes more sense.

Coincidentally, after Obama left, Danny Noonan and Carl Spackler received insurance cancellation letters.

    Ironically, Cindy Morgan ( I own/cherish the "19th Anniversary Edition" of Caddyshack ) weird I know, however; throughout her career, was consistently mistaken for Susan Blakely. Cindy Morgan was born: "Cynthia Ann Cichorski" in Chicago, IL Sept. 29th 1954. Her diving board pool scene remains permanently etched in the American Male psyche. Just sayin'.

    Like any good Chicago Pollack, rather than take 'offense' Cindy often said.., "Well, if you're going to be MISTAKEN for anyone..!?" At least it's an honest mistake. Here's another honest 'mistake' I stumbled on I hope you find interesting?

    An actress just so 'happened' to be present at both the Boston Marathon AND Sandy Hook. Again, just sayin'. Ahem, having recently participated in a "mass casualty drill" to gauge the base's effectiveness in dealing w/ plane crash/zombie attack, I must say the validity of YT observations regarding staged make-up/blood etc. is readily apparent. Blood QUICKLY turns black yet the 'blood' from BM victims appears rosy red sometime later. Many inconsistencies. IMHO.

    Then there was the problem Rick Springfield had with being mistaken for someone else.

    O/T…but it looks like Dear Leader has pi$$ed off another of his constituency groups with yet another lie:

    "On Nov. 1, sizable cuts were gouged into the federal food-stamp program (or, as it’s now called, SNAP, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), which feeds 47.6 million people, or nearly one in six Americans. In the city, 1.9 million folks get the bulk of their Jell-O and Campbell’s Soup from stamps.

    But news has spread among the poor, like leafy green vegetables, that it wasn’t heartless Republicans who triggered the cuts.

    Rather, some of the food-stamp cash was snatched to pay for Michelle Obama’s pet project, Let’s Move. What?"

    The article talks about how this is going to have a dire effect on the stomachs of food stamp recipients, so obviously she has not been in line behind the person with who pays for real maple syrup, a couple cases of Pepsi and T-bone steaks with an EBT card. I think the program needs to be cut back, but the money needs to be spent on deficit reduction, not a Moochelle slush fund.

    Also noteworthy in the article is this:

    "but understand that $36 is enough to buy a truckload of Kool-Aid and ramen noodles. (Lose the noodles if the Food and Drug Administration succeeds in banning trans fats.)"

  6. Truesoldier__ on November 11th, 2013 1:54 pm

    Andrew McCarthy has a great article at NRO that explains why Dear Leader's lie about being able to keep your health insurance is actually akin to corporate fraud and should be prosecuted (but of course will not) by the DoJ:

  7. backwoodsconservative on November 11th, 2013 2:14 pm

    I just checked the nutritional information on a package of Ramen Noodles. They have no trans fat. And my grocery budget just breathed a sigh of relief.

  8. Truesoldier__ on November 11th, 2013 6:33 pm

    That is good news. With 4 boys (3 of them teens) we survive on the mega boxes of Ramen noodles.

    So what your saying is once again an LSM reporter got the facts wrong….gee what a surprise.

    "— e.g., the general manager who tells the player, “I will not trade you if you sign the contract,” under circumstances where, unbeknownst to the player, the general manager has already made arrangements to trade him."

    Pretty much says it all. Normally ( having lived in the EYE of securities litigation! ) I should have caught that! But this has all been a rather shocking development and I'm glad Sullivan ( h/t your link ) is bringing that front & center.

    Yes, absolutely deplorable. In the wake of the bust I knew a lot of [former] stockbrokers that PILED into the insurance arena and were cutting a fat hog off annuity policy sales. Usually older clients, widows etc. that were looking for safety in a chaotic market.

    In time they'd gone thru an entire bank branch's or whole AREA and they started "churning" policies just to keep those fat commissions coming in. Andrew also notes, no financial 'benefit' need be established to prosecute. Only evidence of intent to harm.
