So Tiger finally came out of hibernation today. He had to, I suppose, to make his long awaited apology to the world. And, it seems, that everybody has an opinion about it. Tiger's apology has been the subject of more pontification and second guessing than when the frat boy and his cronies decided to take this country to war. If people in A-merry-ca had been as concerned with the frat boy's war as they seemed to be with Tiger's f&^%$#g apology maybe the damn country wouldn't be in the state it is today. But I digress.
Tiger, on behalf of married men everywhere, I am begging you to stop the madness. Please just get back to golf and never speak of your billionaire on blonds trysts ever again. You are killing us out here. Every time you come and our significant others see your ass it starts a new discussion with the girlfriends about cheating men and what dogs men are. You say you are a sex addict, and that you are being treated for it, but Mrs. Field and her crew ain't buying it. They think it's just an excuse for you to fool around. And, now that you are busted, they say that you are just using it as a last resort to save your marriage and half of your millions. I would love to argue with them and get your back, but I know better. Sorry Tiger, you are on your own with this one.
Finally, on a more serious note; I would like to congratulate everyone who opposed the Bush policies during those glorious eight years for making it out alive. Yep, it seems that the frat boy's lawyers actually gave him the OK to massacre an entire village if he wanted to. Damn, that's putting a whole different twist on Hillary's "It takes a village" meme. It might "take a village to raise a child", but it takes a dumb ass lawyer to make it OK to wipe one out.
"The chief author of the Bush administration's "torture memo" told Justice Department investigators that the president's war-making authority was so broad that he had the constitutional power to order a village to be "massacred," according to a report by released Friday night by the Office of Professional Responsibility. The views of former Justice lawyer John Yoo were deemed to be so extreme and out of step with legal precedents that they prompted the Justice Department's internal watchdog office to conclude last year that he committed "intentional professional misconduct" when he advised the CIA it could proceed with waterboarding and other aggressive interrogation techniques against Al Qaeda suspects.
The report by OPR concludes that Yoo, now a Berkeley law professor, and his boss at the time, Jay Bybee, now a federal judge, should be referred to their state bar associations for possible disciplinary proceedings.
But, as first reported by NEWSWEEK, another senior department lawyer, David Margolis, reviewed the report and last month overruled its findings on the grounds that there was no clear and "unambiguous" standard by which OPR was judging the lawyers. Instead, Margolis, who was the final decision-maker in the inquiry, found that they were guilty of only "poor judgment."
See that folks? "Poor judgement". Giving the legal authority to our president to massacre an entire village because you are a partisan hack only makes you guilty of using "poor judgement."
If John "Woo" held a press conference tomorrow to say that he is sorry, I wonder how many reporters would show up?
