Quote of the Day - April 8, 2008

"Rest assured that men 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've got Senator McCain."
- Army Staff Sergeant David Bellavia introducing John McCain at a rally on Tuesday, February 8, 2008

The Hotline asks "What's with the Tiger Woods Comparisons?"

Read the entire Hotline article here.

plez sez: i'm wondering how Tiger Woods comes up in a political comparison involving Barack Obama, unless all bellavia (and the other hacks who got a good laugh out of his cheap one-liner) consider Tiger Woods (and by extension, Barack Obama) to be little more than the "black guys" in their respective areas of expertise.

this country STILL has an issue with race.

"They all look alike."

I thought they were thought similar, because they had a non-black mother.

Tiger Woods at this stage in has career has far surpassed Barack Obama.

For whatever reason, the issue is race.

I guess he meant to say, "You've got your young, handsome, super-intelligent and well-mannered Black candidate who succeeds at everything he does. But, we Republicans want a dumb-ass elderly white man who doesn't know a Shiite from a Sunni and wants to start a war with Iran. We want somebody more like us."

It doesn't shock me that there are people who think like that. It's not about McCain either. There is about 50% of America who likes what the Republicans are selling, regardless of the particular salesman. At least half of the United States is insane.
