Oh, and then went off the deep end enough to warrant a secret service sit down.
Meanwhile, Michelle Obama invites Kaitlin Roig, a first-grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary. During the shooting, Roig hid her students in a bathroom and blocked the door with a storage unit, telling them she loved them, and that “there were bad guys out there right now, we just had to wait for the good guys.”
It’s official. The Republican Party is now the Island of Misfit Toys.
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?
Ted Nugent, justifying remarks which have earned him an investigation from the Secret Service.
Dear Ted Nugent,
Things you are not:
Things you could be:
Things you don’t have:
Things you do have:
That should clear up some of the confusion, you unbelievable asshole.
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>
