When asked about Boehner playing golf with Obama, Hank Williams Junior said this:
“That’d be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu.”
I didn’t take the remark as Obama being Hitler. I took it as a round of golf won’t help bring irreconcilable opponents together.
I stopped watching Fox long ago. They are better than CNN, but that is like cold dog turds versus the fresh kind. Oh… I’m sorry, am I calling Roger Ailes dog shit? Nope you analogy fiends!
Hank Williams, who I consider the honey badger of country music, tried to explain what he meant, but eventually gave up because they don’t care.
So he did what he does… he pulled his song from ESPN, and he wrote a new song:
Now all would be well served if people dumped Hitler analogies, except in the case of actual genocide. So Williams was dumb in that way, but he wasn’t calling Obama Hitler, and if you think he was then we… your intellect is like Hitler to…. Oh never mind.
