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.
52% to 39%
Margin by which a new CNN/ORC poll finds Hillary Clinton won the final presidential debate with Donald Trump.
A new Monmouth poll finds Hillary Clinton is currently ahead of Donald Trump among likely voters nationally, 50% to 38%, with Gary Johnson at 5%. Said pollster Patrick Murray: “Clinton has increased her lead among all registered voters, but the main difference between this month and last month is that her supporters have become more enthusiastic, and thus more likely to turn out while Trump backers have become less likely to vote.”
68% to 20%
Hillary Clinton lead over Donald Trump among millennials, followed by Gary Johnson, according to a new USA TODAY/Rock the Vote Poll of young voters, conducted by Ipsos.
Of Republicans think the election could be swiped from Donald Trump. Just 17% of Democrats agree with the prospect of massive fraud at the ballot box, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll.
A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds Hillary Clinton is consolidating a substantial lead over Donald Trump less than a month before Election Day, 48% to 37%, with Gary Johnson at 7%. Key finding: “While Mr. Trump’s core supporters haven’t abandoned him and not defected to the Democratic side, Mrs. Clinton’s gains stem from a widening advantage among women and the support of voters who had been undecided or planning to vote for third-party candidates.”

We know Donald Trump’s great at provocation,
And he’s even better at prevarication.
But of all of his whoppers,
The one that’s the topper
Is that Democrats, not Russia, are rigging the election.
It was horrifying what he said on the debate stage tonight. Our country has been around for 240 years and we are a country based on laws and we’ve had not contested elections going back to the very beginning. But one of our hallmarks has always been we accept the outcome of our elections.
— Hillary Clinton, on her plane after last night’s debate.
In Trump’s warped fun-house mirror of a psyche, every rejection is a small death. That is why he harps on humiliation, that America is being humiliated on the world stage … He gets so easily distracted by belittling statements … that he could not focus to make points in areas where Hillary is vulnerable. In order to stop losing, he would have to stop losing it.
We endorse Trump for president in the belief he can bring about fundamental change — not alone, but in partnership with his party and a coalition of others drawn from every walk of life who think we can do better than what government has offered under eight years of President Obama.
— The St. Joseph (Mo.) News-Press, endorsing Donald Trump. The Santa Barbara News-Press of Santa Barbara, Calif., also declared for Trump — his first endorsements from a newspaper.
Look, to say that elections are rigged and all these votes are stolen — that’s like saying we never landed on the moon, frankly. That’s how silly it is.
— Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), hitting back against Donald Trump’s claim that the election is “rigged,” CBS News reports.
I promise you that we will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up.
— Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), quoted by CNN, saying Republicans will block any Supreme Court picks she might make.
