Mel Gibson Tries to Help Tiger Woods Out, FAILarity Ensues.

Tiger Woods has lost a fair amount of endorsements lately, but this isn’t one that he needs to pick up. Mel Gibson—Hollywood’s favorite drunk-driving, anti-Semitic, womanizing, self-proclaimed King of Mailbu—piped up on the golf great’s recent extramarital troubles on the pages of the Daily Mail on Sunday, offering his sympathy to the alleged serial philanderer.

Gibson noted, “I feel sorry for Tiger Woods.”

Yeah, that’s what Woods really needs right now, on top of everything else—to be known as the guy who’s pitied by show-biz’s most pitiful human being. And just to throw a conspiratorial flourish into the mix, Gibson went on to opine that the Woods story was being used to deflect from the issues that really matter:

“Why are we talking about this when we’re sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan? … He’s being used as a diversion, and it just drives me crazy.”

Of course, get a couple of drinks into Mel, and he’ll tell you who’s really responsible for all the wars in the world.

Maybe, if Tiger’s really lucky, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will step up to his defense. Would it really be any worse?
