Hank Williams, Jr. ain't:

Hank Williams Jr., the singer whose various videos for the hit song "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night" has served as the intro to "Monday Night Football" for 23 seasons, compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler during a Monday morning appearance on "Fox and Friends." The statement led to ESPN pulling his popular intro segment, best known to fans for its "Are you ready for some football?"

ESPN has every right to not run a song if they don't want to.

A bad choice of words to say the least. I am more than a little sick of the abuse of "Hitler" references by people. Hitler was a mass murderer for God's sake! I can't stand Obama's policies and feckless leadership, but I would never compare him to Hitler...

Dollars to donuts Hank's song returns next week.........
