The world's second-ranking woman golfer, Michelle Wie, seen here in February 2006, recently played with Condoleezza Rice and said the US secretary of state uses her driver "really well," Time magazine reported in an issue that hit newsstands.

"I was like, 'Oh my God, it's the secretary of state. They put me in charge of driving her around" in a golf cart, Wie told Time magazine for its issue on newsstands Monday.

Rush's reply:

 

RUSH: Folks, if you indulge me here, I seldom do this, but I've gotta take care of something personally. I'm sure you've all heard of the female golf phenom Michelle Wie. When I was out at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic back in late January, I did an interview after the third round at PGA with BadGolfer.com. They put it up on their website and we linked to it last week at BadGolfer.com. It figures that I would end up doing an interview with somebody who runs a website called BadGolfer.com. So this guy asked me about Michelle Wie, and I did an interview later that week, the next day, on The Golf Channel where Rich Lerner asked me the same thing, "What do you think about Michelle Wie?"

 

What I said on The Golf Channel was more controversial than what I said to BadGolfer.com! TIME Magazine has picked this up. TIME Magazine's Ten Questions with Michelle Wie and asked her what she thought of what I had said. Well, the problem is, what I said was not totally reported. They asked me about Michelle Wie and I said, "Well, she's a triumph of marketing right now. She hasn't won anything. It's time to get some wins under her belt. If she wants to play the male tour, if she wants to play the PGA Tour, get some wins." It was assumed, though, when you just take the first thing that I said, which was "she's a triumph of marketing," which she is, and it's not a put down!

 

A great marketing plan is a great marketing plan, but it's being reported as a put down. So now they're asking Michelle Wie, "What do you think about Rush Limbaugh said about you?" and Michelle Wie -- what is she, 16 now or 17? "When asked what she thought of radio host Rush Limbaugh calling her 'a triumph of marketing,' Wie, the #2 ranked woman in golfer said, 'Huh? Who's that?' 'Oh, he's on the radio.' 'Well, I don't listen to the radio much.'" So I have nothing against Michelle Wie. I love Michelle Wie. She's a fine golfer. She's great. She hits the ball 300 yards. If anything I'm jealous of her.

 

But now the whole golf world thinks I'm out there ripping Michelle Wie. What would there possibly be to gain ripping Michelle Wie? I just gave an honest answer to the question, "What do you think...?" I'm going to start answering these questions like politicians do. What do you think of Michelle Wie? "Oooooh. What a future. Oh, man, have you seen all these tournaments that she's won? I don't think anybody can keep up with her." Yeah, well maybe it will be the McNabb effect and she'll have a great year, but I don't know. I just wanted to mention it, because there's a lot of Michelle Wie fans. I have nothing against her. It's absurd to even think that I would have to say this.
