PRESIDENT GOLFPANTS’ NARRATIVE CONTROL: Lobbyist close to White House behind effort of golfers to quell jokes about Obama. “A coalition of golf lovers are asking Republicans to stop making so many jokes about President Barack Obama’s love for the golf course, saying such comments are bad for the golf industry. But could politics be at play too? The Daily Caller has learned that Tony Podesta, a well-known Democratic lobbyist with strong ties to the Obama White House, is behind the We Are Golf coalition of golfing organizations that has sent letters to Republicans such as Florida Sen. Marco Rubio asking them to cut out the criticism of Obama’s golfing habits.”

Everything is fake with these people. But honestly, I’m not sure the old narrative — Obama’s giving golf a bad name! — was all that helpful either.

UPDATE: To be fair, it’s not all about golf: On Peak Day of Embassy Protests, Obama Did an Interview with People Magazine and Posed for a Photo Spread. So, you know, they’ve got that, anyway.
