Either Way, Good Riddance

Hank Williams, Jr. is out of his gig at ESPN’s Monday Night Football for good for comparing President Obama to Hitler. ESPN says they fired him, but Williams says he quit.

Williams, whose opening was pulled from Monday night’s telecast after his remarks that day on “Fox & Friends,” said, in a statement to the Associated Press, that the decision was his.

“After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision. By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It’s been a great run.”

Yet another right-wing idiot who doesn’t know the difference between government censorship and the right of a company like ESPN to terminate a contract.
