    This is football related (for the 2 people in here besides me who actually follow football), but I figured I'd be safe and put it down here in the politics forum.

    ESPN yanks Hank Williams for comparing Obama to Hitler - On Media - POLITICO.com

    Hank Williams Jr., the voice famous asking millions of football fans whether they’re ready for some football, has been pulled from tonight’s broadcast of “Monday Night Football” over a comment he made on Fox News this morning.

    Williams, who sings the lead-in song to the game each week, criticized the president for his golf summit with House Speaker John Boehner this summer.

    “It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu,” Williams told “Fox & Friends.”

    I guess that analogy makes sense.........in the addled mind of a terrible, awful, atrocious excuse for a musician that is Hank Williams, Jr.

    If somebody is a racist member of a hate group because they support smaller government, then I think the Hitler analogy is perfectly appropriate.

    I got into this very heavily with NEM some time ago ... it really is wrong to invoke the Hitler card for anything other than the atrocities of what he and his administration did to millions of innocent children, women and men.

    The Hitler analogy

    I'm talking about liberals who consider people hateful bigots and racists and members of an organized hate group because they say things like "we need smaller government and lower taxes."

    When the so called "Little Drunken Coward Chimp" (Bush) was living in the White House the words "Hitler & Nazi" were thrown around quite a bit, I guess Williams thought it was still OK.
