Media Alert: Hawaii vs. Cokie Roberts

The best Media Alert of the week goes to Asian Americans for Obama, simply titled: BREAKING: Hawaii is a State. This was in response to Cokie Roberts‘s characterization of Hawaii as “foreign” and “exotic” as opposed to a trip to say, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The comments on ABC prompted Senator Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) to issue a statement stating the obvious (Hawaii is a state, and Obama has family there).

The best publicity grab [via the Honolulu Advertiser] comes from golf blogger William K. Wolfrum (after the jump):

When real Americans take vacations, they go to Myrtle Beach. That’s why we’d like to let the Obama Campaign know about MyrtleBeachGolf.com. There they can find amazing deals throughout the Grand Strand that combine luxurious (but not elite) lodging, as well as opportunities to play golf on some of the most impressive golf courses in the non-elite Continental U.S.

And while they are making arrangements to send Sen. Obama to Myrtle Beach, they need to get him to switch sports. Basketball is for elites, after all. Real Americans, and real American Presidents play golf. In Myrtle Beach.
