Who's Got My Million Dollar Putter ? ! !

Today we got the sad news from Kari that Gordon Smith has cancelled his Bandon Dunes Golf Fundraiser. No multi-million dollar corporate jets winging in and the $5K per checks go...where? Kari wonders,

Possible Explanation #1: He didn't want to be photographed hanging out with a bunch of special interest lobbyists. (Of course, his people say that's not the case...)
Possible Explanation #6:Or maybe, just maybe, there really was a scheduling conflict. Your job, my fellow BlueOregonians, is to figure out where Gordon Smith is on Saturday. What could possibly have come up at the not-exactly-last minute?

I'm not about to steal much of Kari's snark thunder so you gotta go there...

But he's missed one, you'll have to take my word for it,

"Even if you never met him, you know this guy," Rove said, per Christianne Klein. "He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."

He's heard about Karl's analysis and was skeert Obamabi would be there taking up his wall space and one can't have the caddies doing that... Per Strom Thurmond per Trent Lott per Gordo...

I'm not sure where you're drawing your list of possible explanations from, Chuck, so I'll hazard a guess that this is #8: Perhaps Smith received advance notice of aforementioned tsunami.

The list is per Kari at Blue Oregon.

Leave it to Phil to miss the link and the paragraph that referred to it. Yeah, I caught it about ten seconds after I posted the comment. Thanks, anyway, for the heads-up.
