Now that Tucker Carlson has regained some relevance via the bizarrely outlandish suggestion that quarterback Mike Vick should have been executed for his crimes against dogs, he can move into the apology/clarification/contradiction phase of the attention grab. (Actually, Carlson didn’t apologize.)
Appearing last night on FOX News Channel (via the Huffington Post), Carlson said that he got “too emotional” and that he doesn’t think Vick should have been executed.
“I’m uncomfortable with the death penalty under any circumstances,” Carlson said. “Of course I don’t think he should be executed, but I do think that what he did is truly appalling.”
Of course that’s not what he said last week. And of course we have all now been reminded that Tucker Carlson has not yet been executed or otherwise died.
