BRISTOL, Conn.--Evidently, stating the painfully obvious can land you in hot water in this country.
ESPN yanked Hank Williams Jr.'s song, "Are you ready for some football?", from the opening of Monday Night Football, after the country warbler compared President Obama to former German president Hitler on Fox and Friends.
Williams Jr. was refering to Obama's golf outing with House Speaker John Boehner when Williams Jr. stated, "It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, OK?"
Despite the fact that the rest of America was thinking exactly the same thing, there are many in political and academic circles who are taking issue with the analogy.
Harfold State College instructor of political science, Henry Verduccio, weighed in, saying, "Really, why can't Obama be the Netanyahu part of the analogy? Netanyahu speaks really good English just as the President does. And Boehner's got the Aryan thing going, along with a German surname to boot."
History professor at HSC, Erin Rollins, added, "There is absolutely no historical proof, whether photographic or autobiographical, that Hitler even played golf.
"Alas, we were thinking exactly what Williams Jr. spelled out on TV, but we should be ashamed of ourselves."
