Time Magazine’s Jeff Chu interviewed Michelle Wie recently. Here are a few classic Michelle responses:

Time: Who are your role models outside golf?

Michelle: A couple of weeks ago, I met the Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice, and I thought she was really amazing. I look up to her because she’s a really strong woman. I can’t believe I played nine holes with her. She was kind of a beginner, but she was pretty athletic. She actually hit her driver really well. She liked hitting her driver. Anyway, I don’t really remember everything. It was such a blur, and I was like, “Oh my God, it’s the Secretary of State.” They put me in charge of driving her around. I was like, If I crash, the Secretary of State goes down with me.

Time: Rush Limbaugh reportedly said something about you recently [calling you a “triumph of marketing”].

Michelle: Huh? Who’s that?

Time: You don’t know who Rush Limbaugh is?

Michelle: Uh oh.

Time: He’s on the radio.

Michelle: I don’t listen to the radio much.

The Golf Blog: We would have added, He’s the guy who was addicted massively to pain killers, until he was ratted out by his own housekeeper (see here). He made a similar type of remark (see here) about the media hyping of QB Donovan McNabb, who is African American.
