That’s the portion that the P-D’s Bill Lambrecht leaves out in his post on Roy Blunt’s “Values Voters’ Summit” speech.
In case you missed it, Roy Blunt told a hideous story at the summit:
A long time ago in India, Blunt said, a group of British occupiers set about building a golf course from what was formerly a stretch of wilderness. Much to their surprise, as soon as the first balls were played, monkeys would run out and play with them. The monkeys might throw a ball from fairway to sand, from sand to fairway — or even back at the golfer.
Eventually, the golfers had to agree to a new rule, never before used in the game. “You have to play the ball where the monkey throws it. And that is the rule in Washington all the time,” Blunt said, to the applause and laughter of the crowd.
