Default The most ridiculous story of the year

Hank Williams Jr. & ESPN will be parting ways, after Bocephus's made the remark on Fox & Friends that Boehner & Obama were as different as Hitler & Netanyahu .

Won't be long (maybe already has happened ) and ESPN will only be allowing liberal backing employees (since seeing how they twisted Favre's compliments of A.Rodgers)

I've got to say, I have heard no outrage (calling for His job) from even the farthest of lefty loons..............Seems to be 100% ESPN's call on this one.

When entertainers share their political views, whatever they are, it isn't usually good for them in the end.

And, regardless of the situation, I don't think it is ever smart to compare anyone to Hitler. It just generates an emotional response. Doesn't matter if it's a fair comparison, or if you mean to create a comparison to Hitler's views, you are always called a bad guy for doing it...

That is what makes this so ridiculous......He wasn't comparing obama to Hitler. He was commenting on how far apart the views of these two men are.

But, yeah You're right.
If You are a white person asked to comment on a black person, You would be wise to say "No comment". It no longer matters if Your statement was malicious or not.
Pick the wrong word, or phrasing & You are done.

Well unless You are Barbra Walters, then You can throw the N - word around all You want...
