Tiger Woods Breaks Silence, But Takes No Questions

The leading golf writers’ association boycotted Tiger Woods’ press statement because they were not going to be allowed to query him:

Immediately following Woods’ statement, attorney/advocate Gloria Allred appeared with one of Woods’ girlfriends, who feels he should have also apologized to (her) those whom he┬áparticipated in extramarital relationships with.

Tiger Woods to Hold Non-Press Conference: Golfer Goes Public in Non-Event

On Friday, Tiger Woods will make a public statement to a select group of media, and reiterate that none of Thanksgiving Friday’s incident, or the resultant revelations, are anyone’s business but he and his wife’s.

And he isn’t taking questions. Only difference between what he’s gonna do then, and what he has said on his website about same, is on Friday he will be seen saying them. Thus, the big event isn’t.

Were I part of Woods’ Inner Circle, AKA The Fortress of Solitude, I would advise The Brand to repeat, word-for-word, the contrite statement made by the fictional character portrayed by Chris Noth in the new t.v. hit The Good Wife. His admission of guilt was personal, heartfelt, accountable, remorseful, and left light in the tunnel for a public acceptance of a comeback (in the character “Peter Florrick”s┬ácase, a political one).

Two Words For Sister Sarah

We here at PC only have a few words for former Governor Sarah Palin, and they are not “palm notes”. After her performance at the Opryland Hotel tea party deal, all we can say to her and the electorate are:

you quit

&

teen daughter

Before you start finding fault in other leaders, Mrs. Palin, you should look a little closer to home.
