The problem with “Tiger” (is that REALLY his name? No I don’t think he was Christened “Tiger”) Woods is that he’s famous, and he plays a sport that GramscoFabiaNazis, the wretched and tormented social climbers that they all are, are desperate to get into for its conferred layer of respectabililty. Golf. So – I wouldn’t go for it frankly if you paid me, just like the sport of smoking, but that’s just me. Down the road from me, there is a Golf Club, at which the “Open” was played a year or so ago, and into which no possibly imaginable amount of money or fame could get you…unless you were “all right”, or you “know John Ball“. (NB! NOT “John Galt!”) Mr Barnaby and Midsomer Murders are not even in the league.
A globally-famous, ethnic (a really strong bonus) and astonishingly rich man is going to be the target of gold-diggers. Obama can’t yet be targetted behind his CIA/Halliburton/Bush/Rothschild/capitalism/Pentagon/Jewish-conspiracy/anti-Copenhagen/paywall, but Woods can be for he is private and unprotected. The purpose of the Hominid Y-chromosome is to replicate as many simultaneous copies of itself in living bodies in real-time as it can. That’s what it does, that’s its job. Poor thing: it does NOT belong in our celebratory-multicultural-post-feminist-century – perhaps now we will go extinct and please Paul Ehrlich at last… Therefore someone like Woods is vulnerable to people who want other people to believe that they have had sex with him.
I’m only surprised that, Woods being as rich as he is and as successful as he has been, for as long as he has been, that it’s taken so long to do the Aztec-Human-Sacrifice-Routine-Tart-in-the-night-at-hotel-Thingy on him.
I wonder to myself in the night, while dreaming, what Libertarians would do about celebrities and the media. Is either necessary, or both? If one or the other or neither, what then ought we to do? All these people and their private tragedies are such a distraction from the real issues, such as what to do about Gordon Brown and the other Fabians.
