Down with PC OPP

When I first heard about this, I thought it was a joke. But no. Eugene Robinson is most disappointed at Tiger Woods for not having a diverse stable of mistresses.

From the Washington Post:
Tiger's validation complex

...Here's my real question, though: What's with the whole Barbie thing?

No offense to anyone who actually looks like Barbie, but it really is striking how much the women who've been linked to Woods resemble one another. I'm talking about the long hair, the specific body type, even the facial features. Mattel could sue for trademark infringement.

This may be the most interesting aspect of the whole Tiger Woods story -- and one of the most disappointing. He seems to have been bent on proving to himself that he could have any woman he wanted. But from the evidence, his aim wasn't variety but some kind of validation.
