Hank Jr. Takes Kanye’s Jackass Crown


Country legend also
eyes run for Senate in Tennessee.


By Perez Mills


It was a stunning reversal for Kanye West. On any normal day
the loudmouth rapper (and Pitchfork pet rock) could feel content with the
knowledge that even President Obama considers him the number one jackass in America, an
image he’d cultivated for several years. But no longer: in one brief appearance
yesterday on the Fox network program “Fox & Friends”
country superstar Hank
Williams Jr. swooped in to scoop up the jackass crown.


As you no doubt have heard already, Hank Jr. compared Obama
to Adolph Hitler in comments regarding the President’s golf game with House
Speaker John Boener. He called it “one of the biggest political mistakes
ever. That turned a lot of people off… It’d be like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin]
Netanyahu.” Williams additionally called Obama and Vice President Biden “the
enemy.” Watch the video clip:



Sports network ESPN quickly pulled a pre-taped performance by Williams that had been slated to appear on “Monday Night Football” as
pundits across the nation howled in protest. (Well, some of them yawned, too.) Today,
however, Williams went into spin/damage control mode and in a statement characterized
his comments – in a classic stroke of a non-apologizing apology – as being “misunderstood”
and that it was “a Dumb statement and I am very Sorry if it Offended anyone.”


Williams added, “Some of us have strong opinions and are
often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme – but it was to make a point. I was
simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me – how ludicrous that
pairing was. They’re polar opposites and it made no sense. They don’t see
eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President.”


This is a guy, remember, who has already indicated he is
thinking about running for the Senate next year in Tennessee. As a Republican, of course.


Sorry Kanye, but your dick has clearly been knocked into the
dust. It will be hard to top this kinda stuff…
