No Mulligan for Giuliani

Andrew Giuliani, the son of former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, has filed a federal lawsuit against Duke University after being kicked off the golf team for various minor infractions. The lawsuit asserts that the coach said Giuliani tossed an apple at a teammate, hitting the side of his face, and that in a football game with members of the golf team he “played harder than some of the other boys wanted to play.”

It is unclear if his disruption and bratty behavior during his father’s inauguration as mayor of New York in 1994, when he was a chubby-cheeked seven-year-old, were cited as a possible reasons for his dismissal. Also included in the lawsuit is an e-mail to Giuliani from five teammates saying they no longer wanted him on the team.

In other words, ol’ Andrew’s still a brat.  What’s also clear is, he’s not a very good golfer.  According to reports, he’s the twelfth best player on Duke’s thirteen-person team.  The team’s “spiritualist” summed up the situation as follows: If you’re talented, and you act like an asshole, you’re considered “complicated.” If you’re not talented, you’re just an asshole.  [Newsday]
