Heres something for you ponder, as more and more comes out about Tiger Woods, including, at last report, the possibility that one of his many lovers has photographs of him naked that shes selling to Playgirl (move over Levi Johnston, and his teensy weiner!).
Apparently, everyone knew about Tiger Woods affairs and his behavior off the course, but the MSM narrative was that Woods is a hero and the Woods brand was something the MSM protected at all costs refusing to write negative stories about him, or tell the truth about any of his shennanigans. Everyone knew Woods was up to the things he got up to, but the MSM would not talk about it.
Here in Chicago, depending on what community youre in, everyone knows things about Dr. Utopia too. Our current president, back when he was a community organizer for ACORN, a state senator, and an adjunct law professor, was indiscrete and up to all sorts of shenanigans by all accounts. He not only sat in the pews at Trinity United Church gleefully taking in all the hatred and paranoid delusions of Jeremiah Wright, but like many black men at Trinity hed then find somewhere up north to unwind when fiery sermons couldnt quench the same thirsts as, say, nights spent at the baths. In Chicago, guys in their late 40s and early 50s, who admit they used to go to bathhouses, love talking about a skinny black guy with big ears who said he was a state rep, whenever hed go to Mans Country to be serviced by white men there.
Were in our 30s here and have never set foot in Mans Country. But, go to Sidetracks on Showtunes nights, Little Jims or Northend on Halsted, or the Lucky Horseshoe at Belmont and talk to guys whove lived the scene, been there, done that, and will admit to being lifelong fans of Mans Country.
Theyve got stories to tell, believe us.
The thing is, despite both Mans Country and Steamworks (the two bathhouses in Chicago) being in business for DECADES, and doing fairly well, even in this economy, few people here will admit theyve ever been there. Since they wont admit theyve gone there, they dont want to be quoted talking about anyone else going there either. Absolutely none of them will go on record being the guy who talks about that skinny, effeminate, black state rep who liked having white men give him fellatio (but never reciprocated, the stories go).
They know what happened to Larry Sinclair regarding coming forward with those stories.
But, they sure talk in bars.
And that makes us think of Tiger Woods and all these affairs. It seems if you were in golf circles, you knew all about this and probably know even more. But, no golfers ever exposed Woods. Even his mistresses didnt rat him out until he brought himself down. Once the floodgates opened, however, the truth all spilled out.
The same is going to happen with our current president in several areas, SOMEDAY:
(1) How did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, as he details in the book William Ayers ghost wrote for him, when no US citizen was allowed in Pakistan with a US passport in 1981?
(2) He admits to doing a large amount of drugs while going to Occidental College in California, smoking dope in high school, and doing cocaine at Columbia but did he sell drugs too?
(3) What, exactly, is the big secret with his college transcripts, birth certificate, adoption papers, medical records, and other documents he refuses to release?
(4) Does he have early stage Parkinsons as many suspect?
(5) Did he patronize an establishment called Mans Country in Chicago during the 1990s?
(6) Was he a member of a support group of men at Trinity United Church who also enjoyed frequenting places such as Mans Country? If so, who were the other members and did Jeremiah Wright arrange those meetings for these married men with similar interests?
(7) Did he take a $10,000 pay-to-play bribe from Yesse Yehudah when he needed money after his failed congressional race against Bobby Rush?
There are people who know the answers to all of the above, and more questions that we havent listed questions people in Chicago talk about all the time, without any prompting from us.
The MSM did not want the public to know any more about Dr. Utopia than the public knows about Tiger Woods. All that mattered was that these were highly marketable biracial men with compelling life narratives the MSM embraced to drive ratings and create phenomena. It took years for the truth to come out about Woods. Maybe the truth will never come out about Dr. Utopia.
Maybe hell serve his term, retire to Hawaii, and make billions of dollars delivering speeches and having William Ayers write more books for him. Or, maybe, people will start talking not just in bars, but to the public itself
just like some started doing about Tiger Woods
I keep seeing these Obama/gay stories popping up. Makes sense. Accounts for the lack of a bimbo trail that every male Democratic pol who is even semi-charismatic has.
I agree and I am wondering since all these sluts came out; why is Tiger paying any of them off? They are just as guilty as he is. It takes two to tango. I wouldn’t give any of them a plug nickle.
Obama needs to go right now.
I am curious. It may be gay with Obama; but I think it will be a lot more than that.
This is a whole new bit of gossip. What does it mean?
Could you explain further?
This is one fine essay—Rush took a half hour of his show to discuss it. http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/12/tiger_barrack_and_the_law_of_t.html
For the life of me I do not understand Rush’s near obsession with Tiger. Why drag Tiger into the conversation.
Is there some personal animus between Rush and Tiger?
As I listen to Rush, I don’t hear an “obsession” as you put it. I hear an analogy to the hero-myth built & sustained by the media for Tiger, to the one built & sustained for ‘bama. Rush predicts that like Tiger’s, Obambi’s myth will crash & very soon. Rush is merely drawing a parallel & an apt one, IMHO.
This would certainly explain why there are no details of Obama's life available in the public domain.
Dare I say that in the place where one would expect a huge volume of gritty detail (on Obama's life)...there is only a terrestrial "black hole"!;-)
Given the mere facts of the TW story, generally Rush wouldn't have said much. So I'm thinking there's some stuff he's dying to get out there that he can't just yet.
Tiger may be much more of a jerk than we know yet.
Keep in mind some of these sports media types who covered for TW may have been in on keeping Rush from becoming partial owner of a football team. If he's waiting for some revenge, Great! They've got it coming, and I'll get a kick out of watching.
He also sees the Tiger Woods story as an important metaphor about Obama's rise to prominence.
Or, maybe he knows stuff like in this Hillbuzz.
The fact that Rush has spent so much energy on TW has more than celebrity scandal going on.
This is ALL news to me.
I think his marriage to MO was arranged. /just my opinion
I saw that and commented.
I agree, maggief. Definitely arranged.
She might have fallen in love. He is incapable.
I didn’t read the comments. Just perused the pic. Looks like a scar to me.
I don’t know about her sexuality either. /again JMO
