Of the many ridiculous things said about Michael Vick this season, none was more ridiculous than political analyst Tucker Carlson's suggestion that Vick should have been executed for his role in a dogfighting ring.

Carlson got plenty of attention for the remark, and of course that led to another shot at it for him to backtrack. You will note, however, that there is no apology anywhere in his latest remarks.

Carlson made the comments when he was serving as a guest host on "Hannity." He returned to the show last night, this time with Sean Hannity as the host.

"This is what happens when you get too emotional," Carlson said, according to the Huffington Post. "I'm a dog lover...I love them and I know a lot about what Michael Vick did ... I overspoke. I'm uncomfortable with the death penalty in any circumstance. Of course I don't think he should be executed, but I do think that what he did is truly appalling."
