Augusta National Admits First Female Members

Houston Mitchell, writing for The LA Times:

“Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters tournament, admitted the first female members in its 80-year history Monday: former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore.”

Good news for Condi and Darla, but don't cheer for those buffoons at Augusta National.

Augusta admitted their first black member in 1990. Good thing, because Tiger Woods came along shortly thereafter and won four (and counting) Masters tournaments.

Augusta used to require their caddies be black. Really.

Now they'll have a *black* *female* member, one who's of taller intellectual and professional stature than any ten of the club's backload of Judge Smails wannabes.

Welcome to the twentieth century, Augusta.
