Tiger Woods hires Ari Fleischer


By GottaLaff


This is who Tiger Woods hires to get us to accept him again? With smarmy representatives like this, who needs enemies?

If this is how Tiger intends to rebuild his image, why not just hire Karl Rove? Or Mark Sanford? Or Tickle Me Massa?

How to cement Worst Judgment in the World status:

Two sources in the golf community have told The Post that Ari Fleischer, the former presidential advisor to George W. Bush and the man who was brought in to help repair the steroid-shattered image of Mark McGwire, has been huddling with Woods, plotting a strategy for his return to golf — at the Arnold Palmer Invitational starting March 25 at Bay Hill in Orlando.

That did it. I can't even look at the guy now...

... as if I could before.

    Ari did a bang up job with Mark McGuire. Now he's doomed for the Hall of Fame. Looks like a bone head move by Tiger's team. D.

    I wonder at what price tag is in this.Not that I care, just wondering.

    If Ari Fleischer's other claim to fame is repairing McGwire's "steroid shattered image", he sure did a shitty job. Don't think we'll be having to deal with Tiger Woods as Mr. Clean any time soon.

    Ya know, McGwire cried when he admitted taking steroids. Maybe Fleischer gave Tiger a free trial basis for signing up.

    Which race is that, kimbutgar? The caucasian? The Asian? Or, the Black? Woods famously identifies with all three.

    Woods, like many unimaginative men with wealth and/or power, seems to have a thing for blonde bimbos. I would hardly say that this predilection, or his choice of PR hacks, says absolutely anything about "his race."

    He only goes for white woman and now this. He's a sell out to his race. Now I am even more disappointed with Tiger.

    Fleischer's politics aside, he is a PR guy, and not terrible at his job. I din't much care for his message, or who he spoke for, but he did a great job as W's press secretary. What's more, McGwire's back working in baseball, which says a lot about both McGwire, and how well his PR team has been doing.

    In cases like this, it's more than understandable for someone to not care about the guy's political beliefs (who knows, maybe they share ideals), so long as he does his job. I make it a point to look past the pictures on my doctor's desk of him with Bill Frist and John McCain, because it really has nothing to do with whether or not I get better.

    what could possibly go wrong here?
