    Contrary to what you'll read, Hank has decided to drop MNF, saying "I have made MY decision. ... Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE."

    Did Hank Williams Jr undergo a sobriety check prior to such a rant? Given his numerous incidents of being drunk on stage for concerts, I'm surprised this outburst didn't happen sooner.

    Lane Myer:

    Good example but let's admit that the politically correct nonsense generally leans way more left.

    P.S. You skiing the K-12 rules!

    This controversy gets at the core of our current political problem. Extremists on both sides demand that "their" politicians take no-compromise, the other side is the "enemy" positions. Thus every vote becomes an exercise in extremism. William's attitude is the enemy, not Barak Obama or John Boehner.

    I think you have a short memory.

    " During a London concert ten days before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, lead vocalist Maines (of the Dixie Chicks) said "we don't want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States (George W. Bush) is from Texas". The statement offended many Americans, who thought it rude and unpatriotic, and the ensuing controversy cost the band half of their concert audience attendance in the United States and led to accusations of the three women being "un-American", as well as hate mail, death threats, and the public destruction of their albums in protest."

    This is nothing new, is it?

    I don't understand why all the hollywood elite can call Bush "Hitler" and nobody said a word. Can anyone teach me about these moving standards of decorum?

    Maybe the Hitler analogy was to Boehner, not Obama. Everyone hears the quote and just assumes Obama is Hitler and Boehner is Netanyahu. Why not the other way around?

    Ya, what about Kanye West's comments about President Bush being racist? No big deal made about that, in fact Def Jam CEO Russell Simmons said he was appalled that Kanye actually apologized for making the statement. Amazing!
