I just read about Martin Shkreli. I hereby reverse the church’s position on abortion. I mean, seriously. That guy should have been aborted. Maybe even twice or three times, just to make sure.

Its not, of course.
But it should be.
Country music star Hank Williams, Jr., has just released a single in advance of his upcoming album marking his 65th year, Bocephus Security. Taking into account that he’s now well over twice as old as his daddy Hank Sr, was when he died in the back of a cab on New Years’s Day 1953, Hank, Jr. being 65 is a bit disconcerting, but it isn’t controversial.
The advance single, however, is sure to be.
The song, “Chicken Lickin,'” is what Hank Jr. is calling a “black anthem for the 21st century.”
But the controversy will not end there.
The video features a character resembling President Obama stealing a bucket of fried chicken from the ghost of Colonel Sanders and handing out the pieces to members of the New Black Panthers.
Countering the inevitable charges of racism given his history of incendiary remarks against Obama (as well as some more generally racially insensitive comments), Hank Jr. said the song and video are anything but racist.
“For crying out loud, is there ANYTHING people won’t take offense to? I love the black people and I wrote this song for the black people,” he insisted. “I wrote it to be an anthem and if the liberal media doesn’t gang up on it, the song is going to be an anthem.”
“Besides,” Hank Jr. added, “the guy in the video who’s made up to look somewhat like Obama? That’s Ben Carson – who, when last I checked, is actually black! And he gave me a thumbs-up on every word of the song. So no, I ain’t black. But, unlike that chick from the B-52s who did that ‘tranny anthem,’ I actually got some input from a member of the group I was writing the song for!”
