Just in case you missed it, Hank Williams was sitting on the crazy couch of Fox and Friends this morning where he compared Obama to Hitler.  There's something about that couch that draws out the crazy from the right-wing nuts.  It was there that Beck said Obama hates white people and we see how that worked out.

Well, ESPN "ain't" having this nonsense:

"Musician Hank Williams Jr.–who doubles as the voice of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football”–has been pulled from tonight’s broadcast as a result of statements he made on Fox News early this morning.

On “Fox & Friends,” Williams said this of the so-called “golf summit,” which saw President Obama and VP Biden playing golf with House Speaker Boehner and Ohio Governor John Kasich:

“Come on! Come on! It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu!” adding “They’re the enemy! Obama! And Biden! Are you kiddin’ me, the Three Stooges!”

In response, ESPN released a statement, saying “While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football.  We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
