Better Dead Than Red

Ted Nugent is hitting the pavement for GOP president hopeful Mitt Romney. The rocker called for attendees of the National Rifle Association’s convention to go out and recruit thousands of people to vote for Romney in the coming election. Nugent said, ”Our government is wiping its a– with the Constitution.” During an on-site interview, he also told the crowd, ”We’ve got four Supreme Court justices who don’t believe in the Constitution. Does everybody here know that four of the Supreme Court justices not only determined you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms, four Supreme Court justices signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense? That sounds like a stoned hippie. That doesn’t sound like a Supreme Court anything.” The musician went on to say: ”If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” A representative for Nugent didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.


I've always admired Uncle Ted both as a musician and an American, but there's no way in hell that I would endorse Obama Lite for dogcatcher, much less president of the United States.

But I did catch a funny comment on that page:

Did Nugent go too far with his rhetoric? Is it wrong to fire up voters in the way that he seemed to want to do?

What Ted said was nothing compared to some of the shit I've heard pop out of liberal mouths. But the guy that posted that comment posted a whole shitload of one-line comments spaced about a minute apart to load up the comments section - gotta make Uncle Ted look bad, you know?
