Oh no, this much-anticipated cover of January’s Golf Digest could something something Obama’s “political capital” with his wars and stuff! What is he doing here, taking “tips” from the known… [checks latest TMZ press release in inbox]… murderous adulterous evil goblin Tiger Woods?

The Atlantic is really worried about this cover, categorizing it under the “Dept. of Bad Timing:”

What timing: President Obama and Tiger Woods will appear together on the cover of the January issue of Golf Digest.

It could be the most politically charged Golf Digest cover ever. Woods is dealing with a swirl of rumors and media scrutiny after crashing into a fire hydrant outside his house at 2:30 a.m. and his wife bashing his SUV’s window with a golf club. Obama is sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan and trying to pass a health care bill.

On the inside spread, the cover story is titled: “What President Obama could learn from Tiger Woods–and vice versa.” Seriously.

Ha ha ha, oh man, the shit’s gonna hit the fan now… Wait, what? What does this person mean? We demand to know why we should be shocked!

  1. Is it subtle racism on the part of Golf Digest (or me?) that that picture evokes thoughts of two Masai tribesmen stalking a water buffalo or somesuch with spears. etc.?

  2. I still don’t really get what Tiger did. He crashed his car and there are no reports of alcohol. I’ve heard “rumors” of infidelity, but ????

    So he crashed a car and that’s what everyone is so excited about? What am I missing?

  3. So in the world of Washington being friendly with a famous guy who may be a victim of domestic violence is apparently a political liability. Makes perfect sense.

  4. [re=468985]petehammer[/re]: Well, everyone is over the whole party crashing idiots, so it’s on to the next non-interesting bit of non-news!

  5. Naked Bunny with a Whip:

    They made their lips bigger, too. And made them look like they’re going fishing. Or practicing “Hike!” Or . . . something else.

  6. Tiger has been dead for days, and that’s his ghost giving Obama advice on golf, economics and Afghanistan simultaneously. “Read the lie, play the green, don’t take your eye off the ball.”

  7. [re=468975]Terry[/re]: The Legend of Teabagger Vance?

    [re=468978]AxmxZ[/re]: Ballwashing!

    [re=468985]petehammer[/re]: He had sex with a white woman, and then crashed a luxury SUV into a gated community’s tree.

    Lesson: Tiger should’ve called a cablasian.

  8. Hey, I hear Top Flight is coming out with a new set of womens clubs, along with the driver and the fairway woods, there is a full set of driveway woods. They are very effective when someone’s balls have been in the rough. For use in case of the worst lies. They are perimiter weighted and forged from titanium, so they can smach through the toughest auto glass. They’re called the “Tigress” line.

    Badump bump.

  9. Yes, because a somewhat mysterious car crash and the sending of thousands more American soldiers into war are two totally equivalent things, Atlantic!

  10. A tragedy in the making. The Tea Party Movement will become the Tee Party movement, and all our clever teabagber jokes will be ruined. Ruined, I tell ya!

  11. So, Tiger has been having an affair with Obama. And he is a top?

    I can’t believe it. Although it would explain why Tiger’s wife can beat him up.

  12. I’m not so sure the timing is offensive or scandalous as the subtle, mean-well racism (i.e. comparing two youngish minorities when they operate in similar realms, at similar calibers, or have similar social statuses). It’s like when you’re at a party, and you’ve got two black people at the party, and another walks in, and the host/hostess brings them over to you as if you are supposed to know each other or automatically click.
