Burk Watch... If you're a masochist conservative and following the Lott debacle doesn't thrill you enough, try watching HBO tonight for Bryant Gumbel's Real Sports. Apparently he interviews Martha Burk on the Augusta issue. I haven't seen the program yet but word is there's one particularly strange thing--it never acknolwedges that Gumbel belongs to Burning Tree Country Club in Bethesda, Md., an all-male club that unlike Augusta doesn't even allow women to play as guests. I'm also told that in the interview, Gumbel doesn't take a position on single-gender organizations, which is quite odd under the circumstances. The advance buzz on this could be all wrong, but we'll see.

This TLGolf.com story mentions Gumbel's membership in passing.

This
USA Today brief on the program tonight also neglects to mention Gumbel's Burning-Tree membership.

This Washingtonian story published in October says CBS News luminary Bob Schieffer belongs to Burning Tree. Schieffer hosts the Sunday program Face The Nation.

UPDATE: Gossip columnist Lloyd Grove misses the Bryant Gumbel angle (Grove! You missed the big story!) but identifies another member: Sen. Don Nickels, a possible replacement for Lott. He has a few other names too, including Schieffer, some other Republicans and evil Hollywood lobbyist Jack Valenti.
