Brit Hume has apparently never heard the phrase, when you're in a hole, quit digging. From The O'Reilly Factor Jan. 4, 2010.

O'Reilly: Was that proselytizing?

Hume: I don't think so. I mean, look, Tiger Woods is somebody I've always rooted for as a golfer and as a man. I've greatly admired him over the years and I always have said to people that it was the content of his character that made him beyond his extraordinary golf skills so admirable. Now we know that the content of his character is not what we thought it was. He is paying a frightful price for these revelations. My sense is that he is basically, has lost his family and there's a lot of talk about the endorsements he's lost but that pales I suspect in his mind with what he's lost otherwise.

And my sense of that Tiger is that he needs something that Christianity, especially provides and gives and offers and that is redemption and forgiveness and I was really meaning to say in those comments yesterday more about Christianity than I was about anything else. I mentioned the Buddhism only because his mother is a Buddhist and he has apparently said that he is a Buddhist. I’m not sure how seriously he practices that. But I think… I think that Jesus Christ offers Tiger Woods something that Tiger Woods apparently needs.

Can you help us out?
