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.

And were you fooled by the headline?  Tell us something all of us did not know from the start.
And who cares about these two clowns? Check the ratings, bub, and don't bother us with your cliched rhetorical questions. For all the griping about unimportant articles (as if there is always something big happeneing every minute of the day), it's the stupid, lazy comments that are worse than the biggest fluff article.

This isnt even a story....if you are going to cover something like this, atleast write a story to go along with it.  If I didnt already know what was going on, this story would do nothing but confuse me.  Maybe CBS should review peoples submissions to their website before just throwing it up.  And Brinson should maybe pretend to be a real journalist and supply a bit more.
