Tiger Woods Commits to the Dark Side

and hires Ari Fleisher as a consultant. According to Robert Lusetich of Fox Sports:
The road to his (Woods') comeback was reportedly completed with the hiring of former Bush White House press secretary, Ari Fleischer.Fleischer, a spin doctor with a checkered past, helped Mark McGwire craft the steroid admissions the disgraced slugger made after wanting to return to baseball. There is little doubt about what the tone of Fleischer‘s advice will be, given the statement on his website that "the way the press treats athletes and sports executives has become increasingly adversarial and conflict-driven."Woods has lost major sponsors including Gatorade, AT&T and Accenture as well as the goodwill of a public which largely adored him. If he’s looking for forgiveness, Woods would be better served by getting rid of a consigliere whose stock-in-trade is “acceptable truths” and “plausible deniabilities” for a policy of openness and honesty.

Give Lusetich props for strong moral fiber. But Lusetich is being naive about the real Tiger Woods.

In fact, hiring a slimeball like Fleischer is practically an announcement that Woods has renewed his commitment to the forces of evil after putting up with a couple months of rehab.

School's out. Now it's back to the simple life of aggressive deception for the Tiger.

Porn actresses and escort services everywhere must be happy.
