Following up on an earlier item about David Bellavia comparing Barack Obama and Tiger Woods, I found the analysis on "Hardball" last night pretty striking.
The general consensus, the talking heads said, is that it’s “no harm, no foul,” because Tiger Woods is great at golf. Apparently, to argue that one multi-racial black man is interchangeable with another is acceptable according to Matthews & Co.
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 and 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.
And the "Hardball" taking heads don't find this offensive?
