Glenn opened the show this morning with a new theme, claiming that the composer had made some kind of Mussolini reference. And after a mellow little diddy (editor's note: yes, I just wrote diddy), Glenn blared the Monday Night Football theme which was banned last night following Hank Williams, Jr.'s Hitler analogy - not comparison.
During an interview on Fox and Friends, Williams said that the Obama/Boehner golf game was a clear political game because it would be like "Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu."
"Hitler would not golf with Netanyahu and Netanyahu wouldn't have golfed with Hitler because they're polar opposites. What he's saying here is Boehner was supposed to be a polar opposite to Barack Obama but they get together and play golf," Glenn explained.
Hank Williams, Jr. did not equate Obama and Hitler.
Glenn then went after the hypocrisy of the media, sarcastically asking where the outrage was for The Producers musical number "Springtime for Hitler". He then got serious when talking about the Wall Street protestors, some of which have signs calling bankers "Hitler".
Stu also got angry, saying that every adult knows that the media is unfairly attacking Williams to generate headlines. Stu read off a list of analogies, Black is to White as up is to down, quiet is to sound as darkness is to sunlight, to prove that calling it a comparison is inaccurate. "Does that mean you're comparing down to white?" Stu asked.
"I'm giving up Monday night football," Glenn declared.
"Because I know you didn't watch it before. But you're so committed," Pat joked.
"I'm going to continue not to watch Monday Night Football," Glenn finished.
