The Carpetbagger Report writes about The problem with comparing Obama to Tiger Woods. At a McCain rally a speaker says,
“Rest assured that people like Senator McCain will be the goal and the men that my two young boys will emulate an admire. You can have your Tiger Woods. We have Senator McCain.”Then On Hardball,
The general consensus, the talking heads said, is that it’s “no harm, no foul,” because Tiger Woods is great at golf.No, I found it offensive, too. So I had an idea.
Consider the quote again: “Rest assured that people like Senator McCain will be the goal and the men that my two young boys will emulate an admire. You can have your Tiger Woods. We have Senator McCain.”
In other words, don’t admire the ethnically diverse golfer who reminds this guy of Barack Obama.
Am I the only one who finds this offensive?
Maybe someone could produce a video with a Saturday Night Live style skit. In the skit Sen. Obama has a regular weekly session where he has to apologize for each thing some black person somewhere may have said or done that week, before he is allowed to move on to his topic... Script:
"Now before I begin I see that a black driver in Connecticut ran a stop sign and narrowly avoided colliding with a delivery truck. I sincerely apologize. And in Tennessee an accountant whose mother's grandfather is from Nigeria made a mistake and cost his client $650. I deeply regret that this incident occurred. Now, moving on today I would like to talk about agricultural policy ..."

Can I just apologize for Robert Mugabe? And a few of the other African leaders? Will McCain apologize for Hitler who was white. And maybe the Unabomber? These guys are just not subtle are they?

OK, I DON'T LIKE MCCAIN - OR HIS SUPPORTERS, BUT
THIS TIME HIS GUY WASN'T MAKING A RACIST REMARK,
HE WAS MAKING A COMMENT ON WHO IS CONSIDERED A HERO -
A SPORTS FIGURE OR A PRISONER OF WAR......
WHO HE WANTS HIS KIDS TO LOOK UP TO. POINT TAKEN.
HOW MANY POSTERS OF VICK HAD TO COME DOWN IN BOYS
BEDROOMS ALL ACROSS AMERICA?
I THINK THE GUY JUST COULDN'T COME UP WITH A
WHITE SPORTS FIGURE OFF THE TOP OF HIS HEAD.
YOU KNOW IF OBAMA IS ELECTED PRESIDENT, YOU
GUYS ARE GONNA HAVE TO GET OVER OTHER PEOPLE'S STUPID MISTAKES OR YOUR SHORTS
ARE GONNA BE IN A WAD ALL THE TIME.
