And then there was Martha: Also AP via The Golf Channel, Martha Burk says she was misunderstood when she said Augusta's male-only membership policy was an affront to women serving in the armed forces. It's actually a logical statement inside the context of an illogical quest. If you ask me. But Burk was rightly criticized for exploiting the peril of American soldiers

Burk, chairwoman of the National Council of Women's Organizations, drew criticism for invoking the war in Iraq in her efforts to admit women to the Augusta, Ga., club, host of the Masters.

She explained Monday she was trying to compare women returning from war and facing discrimination to the way blacks who fought in World War II came back to segregation in the United States.

"Women are defending democratic values," Burk said. "Those values don't include discrimination. This same discussion took place during World War II. I don't understand the criticism for us pointing out the truth."

It is true that she doesn't understand.
