So Ted Nugent roams a concert stage while toting automatic weapons, calls Barack Obama “a piece of —–” and says he told Obama to suck on one of his machine-guns. He also calls Hillary Clinton a “worthless bitch” and Dianne Feinstein a “worthless whore.”
That Nugent, he’s a man’s man. He talks the talk and walks the walk, right?
Except when it was time to register for the draft during the Vietnam era. By his own admission, Nugent stopped all forms of personal hygiene for a month and showed up for his draft board physical in pants caked with his own urine and feces, winning a deferment. Creative!
Ah, but that was a long time ago. Nugent isn’t just a washed-up rocker — he’s a right-wing madman who’s not afraid to call out some of the leading Democrats in language so vile it makes the Dixie Chick Natalie Maines’ comments about President Bush sound like a love poem.
You’d think even someone such as Sean Hannity would dismiss Nugent as a macho clown, desperate for attention.
In a discussion on his show last week, Hannity refused to condemn Nugent’s remarks, saying, “I like Ted Nugent . . . he’s a friend of mine,” and even laughing loudly as Alan Colmes read the transcript of some of Nugent’s remarks.
Funny. I don’t remember Hannity being so cavalier about the Dixie Chicks went they criticized Bush.
Not that he’s operating under a double standard or anything.

We all know by now that Donald Trump is not likeable,
And as a president we suspect he would not be capable.
But one thing’s for sure
As the GOP convention nears —
If there’s one thing Trump is, it’s inevitable.
Ted Cruz is the political version of liver and onions. Some people love it and can’t get enough. And some people gag at the mere thought of it.
— GOP strategist Ana Navarro, quoted by the Washington Post.
Lucifer in the flesh. I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.
— Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), quoted by the Stanford Daily, on Sen. Ted Cruz.
“The minute-to-minute coverage of the 2016 presidential primaries threatens to obscure the larger story: While Sen. Bernie Sanders is pressing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to move further and faster down the progressive road, Donald Trump is waging and winning the third major revolution in the Republican Party since World War II. … Mr. Trump’s candidacy has showed that the cadre of genuine social conservatives is smaller than long assumed, that grass-roots Republican support for large military commitments in the Middle East has withered, and that the business community is politically homeless. … So it has come to this: A mercantilist isolationist is the odds-on favorite to win the Republican presidential nomination.
— William Galston, The Wall Street Journal
Bernie Sanders has been treated terribly by the Democrats — both with delegates and otherwise. He should show them, and run as an Independent!
— Donald Trump on Tuesday suggested that Bernie Sanders has been treated unfairly by the Democratic Party and that the Vermont senator should abandon his run for the Democratic nomination and instead seek an independent path to the White House,” Politico reports.
Somebody should be indicted over Right to Rise. I would sue them for fraud.
— GOP donor Doug Deason, quoted by The Hill, about the super PAC that supported Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign.
