Hypocrisy, Indeed

Posted by Phoenix Woman on April 8, 2010

Darren Hutchinson, Professor of Law at American University, makes a salient point about the hypocrisy of Billy Payne, the chair of the Augusta National Club, simultaneously chastising Tiger Woods and refusing to allow women into his treehouse golf club.

I’d also like to add the following observations:

— I did a Google search to see if Payne had ever taken (the very white, very drunk, very dissolute) John Daly to task, much less this forcefully. Couldn’t find any evidence of it.

— Payne has almost certainly known about Woods’ personal life for years. As Charles Pierce pointed out, the reporters working the golf beat knew, but were bullied into silence by Tiger’s now-late dad, who only doled out access to his son to those scribes who could be trusted to look the other way with regard to his son’s affairs.
