I only hope that the Nuge gets to plug his book on Hannity's show. That would be funny.

Good for him for being there!

Cool, the female soldier is slinging a guitar up front, and a rifle on the back.

(I wonder if she slings the guitar on the back, while on duty?)

Scott Rouch, of the 98th Area Support Group Public Affairs Office, snaps a photo of concertgoers with Toby Keith, sitting in the front row, on Monday in Illesheim, Germany. The crew rushed groups of people through to accommodate the long line of fans wanting to have their pictures taken with the country music star. Keith, along with rocker Ted Nugent, performed a free Memorial Day concert in Illesheim for thousands of soldiers and family members.

The source of the Nugent draft dodging is Ted himself, in a Creem magazine interview years ago. Ted was being interviewed by a leftist hippie named Lester Bangers and Ted made a story up about how he did some unspeakable things to himself to avoid the draft. As with 80% of the things Nugent says, it was a complete fabrication designed to play around with someone's head. He has emphatically denied the story's veracity, while still owning up to telling it.

As for Toby Keith smoking pot, that's probably one of the better non sequiturs I've seen here. Who cares?

According to an article on Nugent's own site, he had an "education deferment." Although he only went to college for one year (and didn't buy any books).

Ted admitted that he WAS a "Wang Dang Poon Tang addict." However I do believe that he has changed his ways since. None of us are perfect, and neither is America for that matter. As effed up as we in this country can be, we are still ten times better than the next best thing.

Stuff it. Toby Keith backs the US military 1,000%. He has gone to Iraq several times to do shows free for the troops. If you don't like, tough. I like him. Crackhead.

Who cares about YOUR opinion of anybody's morals?
Your morals and mine do not represent America nor are they peculiarly or particularly American.

These men support the troops, who are even now, DEFENDING our right to follow our own morals as we see them... within the law. And that is at least a substantial portion of what America IS about.

The muslims hate us for our "moral impurity" and it seems like they have found a lot of allies here amongst our "zealot" community.

Courtney Love (yeah, I know) also claims that she performed a certain act on Ted backstage at one his concerts when she was something like 13-years-old.

If that's not true, I suppose Ted would have sued her by now.

Q: Ted Nugent Served in Vietnam? A: False. For all his right wing rhetoric and tough talk during the Gulf War, Terrible Ted was a yellow-livered draft dodger. In fact Ted went to great lengths to fail his army physical. He fasted for a week and drank pot after pot of coffee to drive up his blood pressure. He didn't bathe for weeks and showed up with a turd in his pants and another in his hair. Uncle Sam found Ted unfit for military service. Wouldn't have been a cryin' shame if that incredibly talented rocker had died in battle? I think Ted knew that the future of rock depended on him and Vietnam was just too big a risk to take.

As for the pot smoking...If you use drugs, you support the terrorists. (At least that is what the goobermint tells me) I could give a flying f' about anyone smoking pot.

Yeah and someone said you are a known imbiber of alcoholic beverages and have been know to have impure thoughts about scantily clad teenage celebrities. So I guess your contributions don't count either.

See how it works now...

As long as we're accusing people of orating from their rectal areas, I'd like to point out that the original source of the Nugent "draft dodger" story was Creem magazine, as I originally posted. Ted was later asked about this smear in Metal-Sludge magazine:

"Rumor has it that you s*** in your pants to avoid the draft? Any truth to that, and if not, where did that rumor come from?"

"Not true, but the funniest story I ever made up for some drooling hippie at Creem magazine named Lester Bangers."

So, we have Ted Nugent specifically refuting the story, and providing the source (can't find it online, yet). But you'd like to parade your little find as fact. I'll give you this: you're good at pretending you know your ass from a hole in the ground.

I saw a special on Toby Keith where he talked about Willie Nelson being an "Herbal American", reffering to some time he spent with Willie writing a song.
