VIDEO: Hank Williams Jr. Is An Idiot

 

 

REVIEWING THE NEWS: Nearly 15 years ago, Mr. Show co-creator and current Breaking Bad star Bob Odenkirk presaged what we all now know: Hank Williams Jr. is an idiot.

By Kenny Herzog

"OMG, I am so excited to have more time for catching up with Gossip Girl now."

If Larry the Cable Guy is truly playing a "character," his inspiration might just be Hank Williams Jr. As everyone knows by now, the son of country pioneer Hank Sr. and architect behind ABC/ESPN's insipid (and now-pulled) "Are You Ready for Some Football" Monday Night Football theme song has been disgraced after likening President Obama's golf game alongside John Boehner to Hitler sharing a round with Benjamin Netanyahu. 

Today's requisite apology was, while heartfelt, equally illiterate and ill-conceived. Williams Jr. boasted that he crafted his statement without a publicist, and explained that, "The thought of the leaders of both parties jukin' and high-fivin' on a golf course, while so many families are struggling to get by, simply made me boil over and make a dumb statement, and I am very sorry if it offended anyone. I would like to thank all my supporters."

When not confusing his metaphors and ignoring the useful consult of hired publicity, Williams Jr. will now have plenty of time to focus on his one-note recording career, which was and remains accurately skewered more than a decade ago by the great comic/actor Bob Odenkirk, via he and David Cross' often-ingenious (and rarely more so) Mr. Show. Enjoy, and ponder the tremendous loss (not!) to our culture:

 

IN OTHER WORDS: Netanyahu doesn't strike us as having been the golf-enthusiast type.

HANK WILLIAMS BEING OFF ESPN RATING: 10/10

BOB ODENKIRK IS THE BEST RATING: 10/10

MORE REASONS FOR HITLER'S NAME TO BE IN THE NEWS RATING: 0/10
