So what if I wasn’t born yet? I wasn’t born yesterday. I mean, I liked him before he was all mainstream, y’know, sold out and became president…
Ted Nugent defends himself in the only batshit way he knows how — by digging a deeper hole:
CBS’ Jeff Glor asked Nugent if the Romney campaign had a problem with his NRA comments. Nugent said that the Romney campaign has expressed nothing but support for him after the outrageous remarks. “Stay on course, Ted,” the Romney campaign reportedly told Nugent. “Freedom of speech is a beautiful thing.”
So far, so good. But then Glor decided to point out that Nugent isn’t exactly known as a soft-spoken moderate. And it all goes to hell:
I’m an extremely loving, passionate man! And people who investigate me honestly — without the baggage of political correctness — ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damn nice guy! And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll suck your fucking dick!”
After offering Glor some man-on-man action, Nugent then threatened to “fuck” a female CBS producer, turning to her and screaming “Or fuck you! How’s that sound?”
Nugent blamed his remarks on a kidney stone and apologized later. Kind of like turning into a KKK Grand Wizard because of heatstroke, amirite you guys?
Considering a “communist, Muslim dictator” isn’t running for anything, I’d say that’s a big N-O.
I know the internet can be bright and scary, but communist? Really? Nothing says communism like kowtowing to Wall Street, big business, and the oil industry again and again.
And pro-tip for life: CAPS LOCK is not cruise control for cool, nor does it mean Jesus can hear you better. It just makes you look ridiculous.
Background from Right Wing Watch:
Nugent called President Obama a criminal and denounced his “vile, evil America-hating administration” which is “wiping its ass with the Constitution.” Taking it a step further, he said that “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” …Nugent concluded with a call to cut off the heads of Democrats in November: “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”
According to ThinkProgress, “The Secret Service, which investigates all threats against the President, confirmed to New York Magazine’s Daily Intel blog that they have in fact flagged Nugent’s comment” and will be conducting a follow up.
Thank goodness polite society has condemned Hillary Rosen for her remarks about Ann Romney. That’s so much more outrageous than Romney-endorser Nugent.
In the same rant, Nugent urged NRA conference attendees to find “a couple of thousand” people each to vote for Mitt Romney and said those who don’t are worthless.
But again, Hillary Rosen is just so goddamned awful. Right? </sarcasm>
Mitt Romney, on Wednesday’s Today Show, discussing criticism of Wall Street and the rich. In other words, “Hey, poor people. Y’all are just jealous.”
Funny that. A Pew Poll released yesterday shows nearly two-thirds of the public (66%) believes there are “very strong” or “strong” conflicts between the rich and the poor—an increase of 19 percentage points since 2009. Also, participants identified the conflict between rich and poor as the largest, strong source of conflict in society:
If Romney is to be believed, at least two-thirds of Americans are just jealous.
Brent Bozell, from conservative think-tank Media Research Center, on Fox News Thursday commenting on Chris Matthews’ statements about Newt Gingrich.
Here’s the thing - Matthews said Gingrich “looks like a car bomber” in a riff about him being/looking creepy. Not exactly high-brow political commentary, but also not embedded in racial stereotypes like stating Obama looks like a crackhead from the ghetto.
Hint for Brent Bozell: When you’re attacking a fellow talking head for resorting to the lowest common denominator, it’s best not to seek a, um, lowest-er common denominator.
Happy freakin’ Holidays, y’all - The US House did something for the people. From MSNBC:
The House is expected to clear the measure shortly, capping a swift retreat by House Republicans. Their move to force a holiday season confrontation with Obama and Senate Democrats had threatened to hit 160 million workers with a tax increase on Jan. 1, and it backfired badly.
