Ted Nugent Befouled Himself to Avoid Vietnam Draft

Richard Roeper:

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.

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.

Yeah, right.

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.

    Maybe Ted’s dad used to rape her as a child. She really has a lot of anger issues but so would I if I were in the closet and s**t my pants because I was a fearful coward. Real men don’t need guns to protect our self.

    The day I heard Nugent avoided the draft in 1967. I took every record and tape I had and threw them down the neighbor’s out door crapper. FYI. My frineds and I enlisted in the Marines and Army in June on 1967. As luck would have they were all caught in the Tet Offensive at the DMZ. 45 years later the Chicken Hawk hangs with other draft dodgers in the GOP/Tea Party and FOX. The guy is a Fascist. Sempfer Fi.
