victim of the week: hank williams

Rewarding achievements in claiming victimization

Hank Williams was given a chance, by Fox News no less, to back off his comparison of a golfing Obama to a man who ordered the gassing of an entire people and who caused the deaths of 30 million. Questioned about his analogy, Williams entrenched as only the vomitously stupid can.
