When Hank Williams, Jr. made headlines last week for making the somewhat unfortunate analogy that House Speaker John Boehner playing golf with President Barack Obama was a meeting of polar opposites in the way that Benjamin Netanyahu and Adolf Hitler playing golf would be, the consequences were rather immediate.
Williams’ remark was a bit rough on the edges and not particularly well thought out – he didn’t mean to equate Obama with Hitler, as was reported, but he’d have done himself a favor if he’d used cats and dogs instead of Netanyahu and Hitler, or maybe cobras and honey badgers or something. Still, it was a bit over the top when ESPN decided to wipe Williams off its Monday Night Football introduction as a response.
