*Filling in for Sean Hannity, conservative pundit and self-professed Christian Tucker Carlson, came right out and said it: Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick should be executed.

Well, don’t be surprised at the level of political posturing on the subject in light of President Obama’s praising of the Philadelphia Eagles for giving Michael Vick a second chance following his time in jail over his dogfighting scandal.

“I’m a Christian, I’ve made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances,” Carlson said. “But Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did 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? Kind of beyond the pale.”
