Daily Show, Colbert take on Hank Jr's comments

As you certainly know by now, Hank Williams, Jr., (aka "Bocephus") made some comments on a recent Fox and Friends interview in which he invoked Godwin's Law.

As a result, ESPN yanked his introduction for Monday Night Football, and there's no telling if he'll be back or not.

As a result of that both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report had a little "Bocephus segment" on Tuesday night.

Jon Stewart's reaction is a little surprising, if only because he's more offended by the celebrity-interviewing hypocrisy of having Williams on, and because he doesn't seem ... surprised.

Poor Stephen Colbert though. He simply wasn't even prepared for football on Monday without Hank to inform him that it was about to begin.

I still dont see what is wrong with his comments.   Hank is right, and obviously any American that wants to be in a non socialist country would see that...But of course, there are the liberals who think this is so bad, but cmon give me a break...At least somebody had the balls to come out and say what the majority of Americans are thinking about this idiot we have in office...Thank God its only one more year til he gets the boot

TV is for entertaintment so why wouldn't the country drunk retard be on it...And you talk about people putting their head in the sand.  I think that's you....right or wrong this country drunk retard said something he believed in...what did that have to do about football.  Seems to me you watch tv to tune into political talk shows so you can be told what to believe in.  You're nothing but a puppet.

Too funny. I always wondered why that drunk, druggie hillbilly's warbling had to do with the NFL. Hopefully it's a permanent removal. There's still free speech in this country but there are consequences though. Best part is that he couldn't backtrack fast enough when he found out they pulled his "song". That's one thing about consevatives - they'll eat their hat ( as well as ethics and morals ) if it means they'll make more money ( or in this idiot's case - residuals ).

Laughed my backside off...thanks Stewart and Colbert! Oh thanks to all you paste eating "sports only" fans who are offended that two non-sports personalities are playfully mocking ESPN and a washed up country singer about a non-sports related topic, your absence of perspective warms my heart.  When I read your inane comments I thank goodness that I was born with a good sense of humor and an ability to appreciate a good balanced satirical bit. Lighten up sports fans!

Lord knows that ESPN is the Mecca of all that is holy.  How dare these infidels defile the good word of sports with such a unholy characterization on this all-sports post site.  Let us call for an all out "jihad" against Stewart and Colbert.  They have no right to mock our beloved institutions and point out the hypocrisy in the world of sports.  Death to the infidels!

It is a story, it's a story about a country drunk that is a total retard that has been singing this song on monday night football for over 20 years. Who cares? Nobody really, but the guy is just another country hick that should not be on TV. People that like to stick their heads in the sand and watch football and not see what is going on around them are a  sad lot to be sure. Lots of you out there that is for sure too. Nice to see the real world once in a while though isn't it? I know not your cup of tea, but someone had to clue you in at some point. Now go back to your fantasy world and enjoy life.

You're guys are right! How dare they say about Hank Williams . . . er, they didn't really say anthing about Hank Williams. Okay, how dare they say about sports and sports fans . . . er, they didn't really say anything about that either. How dare Jon Stewart make jokes about Fox and Friends! Oh, right, that's his job. What exactly did they say that was bad, again?

Stewart was just named the most trusted newsman by Time magazine and the huffington post (by a huge margin), but yeah nobody cares about him. He's a clown
