The latest exhibit of this combustable mix occurred Monday when the cable TV sports network ESPN pulled Hank Williams Jr.’s classic intro song from its Monday broadcast of National Football League game after the country singer famous for the line “Are you ready for some football?” used an analogy to Adolf Hitler in discussing President Barack Obama.

In an interview Monday morning on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Williams, unprompted, said of Obama’s outing on the links with House Speaker John Boehner: “It’d be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu.”
