I don’t know how I missed this when it originally aired. But, it’s brilliant and relevant.

Not on the Vick bandwagon is commentator Tucker Carlson who, commenting on Obama’s praise of an act of grace, said that Vick did not deserve a second chance.
Carlson said he should be killed.
“I’m a Christian. I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances,” Carlson said as guest host for Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News Channel. “But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did [it] in a heartless and cruel way. And I think, personally, he should’ve been executed for that. He wasn’t, but the idea that the president of the United States would be getting behind someone who murdered dogs… [is] kind of beyond the pale.”
… I do not know Michael Vick. I do not know Tucker Carlson. But Carlson is right – Vick deserves to die.
So does Carlson.
So do I.
Read the whole thing. It’s worth it.
“…if this is gonna be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor either we’ve got to pretend that Jesus is just as selfish as we are or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition… and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.” – Stephen Colbert
