From time to time, it is good to go on record when something is not evil. YouTube Clip.
A man introducing John McCain said that John McCain will be the hero of his his kids, saying, “You can have your Tiger Woods, we have John McCain.” He is obviously saying that John McCain is a real hero as compared to the most obvious choice of a sports hero today. He is not making some reference to Obama. Is he saying Obama is just a Tiger Woods? That makes no sense; the only issue wrt to Woods is whether he is the greatest person at his craft now, or of all time.
It was an unfortunate choice. And may reveal some subconscious comparison of the few famous Black people this guys knows. (Although, frankly, who else would you name as a sports hero this days? Ely Manning?)
BTW, strategywise, I hope Obama says nothing about this. McCain has been upset because Obama’s people, not Obama himself, apologized about an Obama supporter calling McCain a warmonger. (What exactly is a warmonger, and why isn’t John McCain one?) There is nothing here, but a shrugging Obama is the way to make the most mileage out of this non-issue.
