Douthat, Brit Hume and cluelessness

Contra Ross Douthat's new column on Brit Hume's comments on Tiger Woods, I never said, myself, that Hume was bigoted. I did think, both then and now, that Hume was clueless in several ways.

First, Tiger was becoming yesterday's news by that point.

Second, it was a simplistic view of Buddhism.

Third, it was open to risibility challenges, on the idea that Christian views of sin and salvation were the only and final answer for Woods' situation.

None of which Douthat addresses.
