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.
The amount the NRA has given Sen. John McCain (R-Az) over the years, more than anyone else in Congress. McCain recently voted against a ban that would keep people on the federal No-Fly list from buying guns.
Of more than 150 experienced Florida politicos asked to assess Rubio’s re-election prospects in the Florida Insider Poll predicted Rubio would win if the Democratic U.S. Senate nominee is Alan Grayson, according to Tampa Bay Times. “But if Democrats nominate Patrick Murphy, only 55 percent think Rubio will win a second term.”
Of Americans view the Republican Party favorably, the lowest level recorded since the poll’s inception, according to a new Bloomberg poll. The Democratic Party, by contrast, is seen favorably by 49%.
“More than a third of likely voters backing Democrat Hillary Clinton in the latest Bloomberg Politics national poll say she should pick Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a darling of the party’s liberal wing, as her running mate. … On the Republican side, almost a third of likely voters supporting Donald Trump say former House Speaker Newt Gingrich would be his best pick.”
Of likely voters would prefer to have a beer with Donald Trump as compared to 37% who would like to have a beer with Hillary Clinton, according to a new Rasmussen survey.

When asked with whom they’d rather have a beer,
Nearly half said “Trump,” to raise a glass of cheer.
And it’s probably true
Donald’d gladly drink with you,
As long as you weren’t female, a Mexican, black or queer.
Ugh or yuck is my response. I think Barry would be appalled that his home was being used for that purpose. Barry would be appalled by Mr. Trump’s behavior — the unintelligent and unfiltered and crude communications style. And he’s shallow — so, so shallow.

I think the tailspin could be really bad — historic proportions bad. I think it’ll be a historically bad loss. I’ve said that from the very beginning.
— Former White House press secretary Tony Fratto, quoted by The Hill, on the impact of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign on the Republican party.
I’m not often critical of the media, but I am this year. And it’s driven mostly by television, and ratings. They never really vetted Bernie Sanders, and to this day have not vetted Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton? Oh my God. No human being in history has been more vetted.
— Former Minnesota Gov. Arne Carlson (R), quoted by City Pages, announcing his support for Hillary Clinton who he said is a “very kind, a very good person.”
When they get together, they can talk about their policies about being anti-woman. Since Sen. McConnell has so enthusiastically embraced Trump, we can only assume he agrees with Trump’s view that women are dogs and pigs.
— Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, quoted by Roll Call.
There’s no magic to the phrase radical Islam. It’s a political talking point. The reason I am careful has nothing to do with political correctness and everything to do with defeating extremism. … ISIS wants to claim they are the true leaders of over a billion Muslims across the world who reject their crazy notions… That’s their propaganda, that’s how they recruit. If we fall into the trap of painting all Muslims with a broad brush we are doing the terrorists’ work for them.
— President Obama, responding to Donald Trump’s nonsense on NBC News.
