Capitol Punishment

for Tiger Woods

12/9/2009 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods has officially been declared unfit for Congress -- a California lawmaker is abandoning his plan to give Woods the highest Congressional award for a civilian in the wake of Tiger's scandal.

Capitol Punishment for Tiger Woods
Earlier today, Representative Joe Baca (D-Calif) released a statement saying, "In light of the recent developments surrounding Tiger Woods and his family, I will not pursue legislation awarding him the Congressional Gold Medal this session."

Baca had previously submitted a bill to give Woods the award in recognition of his "service to the Nation in promoting excellence and good sportsmanship, and in breaking barriers with grace and dignity by showing that golf is a sport for all people."

For the record, the bill had no co-sponsor ... even before the Tiger drama began.

The story was first published by The Hill.

Rick Reilly came up with the best image-rehab plan I've heard so far for Tiger to get back into the public's grace - it would actually work, if Tiger wasn't an idiot and followed it, but Woods is obviously to arrogant to try it.

Tiger didn't need a Degree from Stanford (he dropped out his Sophomore year)

Tiger doesn't need any Congressional Gold Medals either.

Tiger seems not to need the affections from a Nanny H/W either.

Tiger still bests the Congressmann's salary by 300 times what he makes in a year.

Tiger will still be able to continue making the $$$ regardless of whether this wife decides it is time to go.

Many wives come and go from top athletes it comes with the territory.Haven't seen an athlete yet who got stopped by it..

Sorry kevin,but I don't see obama "fixing" an inherited mess...I see him as taking as taking a bit of a mess...and turning it into a huge unrepairable sloppy mess.I'm sure you disagree.But hey...we're here to rag on tiger...or in your case...support him. Fine. But as the umpire always says : "Hey..I just call 'em as I see 'em."

Laughing at you Tiger Dumb Ass Woods, you have been busted for being the worlds biggest douche. How does it feel to be loved by most one day and hated by all the next? How does it feel to have your whole life fall apart by your own hands? How does it feel to know we know you might be a closet freak because we all find Rachel for being a shemale suspect. How does it feel to know you have a thing for toothless trash because many of your girls have teeth issues or missing ones. You failed Tiger, you are done. Where the heck is Tiger anyways? He is such a punk for being MIA. How can he ever face the public again? We can't wait for his next golf game it's going to be so much fun to watch this loser shake in his pants and I hope the crowd gives it to him good.
