Enough Tiger Already!

Filed Under (The HELL You Say!) by admin on 14-12-2009

The   New York Daily News reports that  it looks like  “Tiger Woods was into threesomes and shelled out more than $60,000 to cat around with high-priced hookers, a Hollywood madam claimed Thursday.”

In my opinion, Tiger has now completed a resume requirement for election to high office as a Democrat – ala Bill Clinton or Elliot Spitzer.

But ENOUGH already about Tiger!  I ask you, what’s worse, Tiger paying for sex with HIS money or Democrat Max Baucus, a senator, paying for sex with TAX PAYER money?  For the sake of argument, let’s look at Tiger Woods versus Max Baucus;  Let’s say that Tiger spent his money on a woman for “adult” entertainment.  Compare that with what the Politico is reporting on Democrat Senator Max Baucus of Montana – the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Realize, that Baucus is the author, in large part, of this debacle of a health care bill in the Senate.

Democrat Max Baucus gave a $14,000 pay raise –  which is taxpayer money – to his love interest staffer and then took her on a taxpayer-funded trip.  There are laws against prostitution in some states, but there may not be a law against what Baucus did.  Tiger’s married, so was Baucus.

Here are the details. “Senator Max Baucus” – (Democrat-Montana) – “chairman of the powerful Senate Finance Committee – gave a nearly $14,000 pay raise to a female staffer 2008.  This was at the time he was becoming romantically involved with her.  And later that year Baucus took her on a taxpayer-funded trip to Southeast Asia and the Middle East, (even though foreign policy was not her specialty).”  The AP reported “Late last Friday, Baucus acknowledged his relationship with Melodee Hanes, whom he nominated for the job of US attorney in Montana, after it was first reported on the website MainJustice.com.

But he said that Hanes withdrew herself from consideration for the job when the relationship became more serious.  The next day, he dismissed calls for an ethics investigation, saying, ‘I went out of my way to be up and up.'”  “Up and up…” ?   Max, was this associated with any assistance from Phiser Corp.?

“Since his announcement, more details of the relationship have emerged, raising questions about a workplace romance between a boss and employee that Baucus tried to keep quiet also contradicting his explanation for why Hanes’ nomination was withdrawn.”

Here’s the point I’m trying to maker……Tiger Woods is a private citizen. Tiger Woods can’t raise your taxes. Tiger Woods can’t send your kids off to war. Tiger Woods can’t do anything to you.  (Unless you want to factor in emotional distress of some kind.)  Max Baucus on the other hand, can write a health care piece of legislation that can destroy the private sector of this country.  Max Baucus can raise your taxes left and right.  Max Baucus can appoint cronies – read “girlfriends”, to jobs in the federal judiciary and then give her a $14,000 raise – all with YOUR money!.

So, if you and I are going to get all caught up in  the lurid lifestyles of a major public figure, let’s pick a lifestyle that can actually affect OURS in a very direct, very tangible and immediate way.  Whatever Tiger Woods did, he paid for it HIMSELF…….with his marriage, his reputation, HIS money.

What Max Baucus did, he did with an ELECTED position – paid for with OUR MONEY! And has the very real potential to CONTINUE to damage not only our personal finances, but the general welfare of the entire country!

So if you want to continue to fixate on prurient people in the public eye, pick someone important – pick someone who can and will touch your life in a real way.  Tiger Woods? – entertaining prostitutes with his own money. Or  Max Baucus? – who IS the prostitute….buying and selling favors with TAX PAYER money!
