  •  If Phil is dumb, I won't give him a pass, but (8+ / 0-)

    a D+ (instead of an F) for not being smart enough not to be ignorant and say ignorant things. Problem is, guys like him never see real life, suffering or poverty. The closest he probably came was when his wife had cancer - then the whole family got all this public attention and commiseration for it (because they're soooo important), and smothered in millions of pink ribbons and all. The other ignorant piece is being told and constantly fawned over on how wonderful and indispensable he is to the world and how much money he deserves for just smiling in front of camera, holding golf products. After 20 years or so guys like him actually start believing all that personality cult crap that they are truly remarkable characters. They're not - they just play golf well (or throw a fastball or...). I think Phil will get a bit of an education once he's savored all of the media feedback and discovered that Yes, we do begrudge you whining about a losing few sheckels while millions are in great pain just trying to feed their kids. If he wakes up and apologizes, I may move him up to a C.
