Wango Tango (Ted Nugent supporting Fred Thompson?)
Slate's Political War Room ^ | August 24, 2007 | Tim Grieve

Posted on 08/24/2007 12:55:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Back in June, Motor City Madman Ted Nugent said he admires a lot of the 2008 Republican presidential candidates, and especially would-be candidate Fred Thompson.

"I really like Mike Huckabee and Tommy Thompson," Nugent told Dennis Miller. "I admire Mitt Romney. I admire John McCain. But to whittle it down right now I really have the Nugent spotlight, and I've been scrutinizing Mr. Fred Thompson. I think he glows a little bit more than those other great gentlemen."

Does Thompson think that Nugent glows? And if he does, will he still think so after watching a concert video in which Nugent urges "piece of sh*t" Barack Obama to "suck on" a machine gun and then suggests that "worthless b*tch" Hillary Clinton should ride on one?

What would Thompson --- or, say, Fox News, which hosts Nugent often -- be saying today if Bruce Springsteen or some other left-leaning musician had made similarly vicious and threatening comments about a Republican presidential candidate?

And how about you, Sean Hannity? Hannity had Nugent on his Fox show in July to discuss a blog post in which a writer said he had "dibs" on Rush Limbaugh if it ever became legal to shoot him, and that others would be "welcome to" Nugent if they wanted him. Hannity said he took such threats seriously, and he asked Nugent if people who make them ought to be arrested. Nugent's answer: Yes.

"You know, I'm an American. I love all Americans. And I would help any American pursue their dreams and their pursuit of happiness," Nugent told Hannity. "But you find that the left, there's a lunatic fringe on the left that literally are trying to force us to comply to their outline of life. And I find it just reprehensible that they would recommend violence, not to mention murder and shooting people and assassinating people. This is bizarre."

I wonder what little Timmy would do if someone threatened his life?

He would take it seriously, as we all would.

Let me say this loud and clear:

I DON’T CARE WHICH CANDIDATE A MUSICIAN SUPPORTS.

Bruce is a left wing Socialist, but I still love his music.

Nuge is right... osama needs to suck on one and beast needs to ride one... as in machine gun.To expect Nuge to be politically correct is like expecting ted the swimmer not to attack an open bar and free buffet table!

Let us not forget that US senator from Illinois called our soldiers Nazi’s. Ted is a stage actor, the US senator, dirtbag Durbin, is a slimey lawyer politician. This is just one example of the filthy disparaging remarks made by our leaders. Check John Kerry’s comments and forget Ted.

Nugent is three quarters deaf and half crazy.

That’s why he isn’t supporting Duncan Hunter.

Yeah, poor old lazy Fred with the trophy wife. He may not even do a third term as president if he doesn’t watch himself...

I’d vote for Ted before I’d vote for any of the declared or undeclared candidates. He’s got bigger stones than even my favorites Duncan or Tancredo.

And he’s never, ever, ever boring.

Little Timmy must have a deaf ear towards the vicious, vile, and threatening crap that have come out of the left directed toward President Bush or any other conservative.

Hmmm like %0 - Cent calling Bush a "gangsta?. Natilie Maines from The Dixie chicks called "A Dumb F***!

Maybe the Left should just stick to making movies about Bush being assassinated!

I just saw that a few minutes ago. Magnificent. I thought the speaker on my computer was going to break when he mentioned Hillary.

God Bless the Nuge!

He’s actually written numerous positives about Hunter on his board, but I guess he’s going with Thompson because Thompson seems to have the best shot. :)

Typical left wing hypocrisy. Dixie Chicks, Madonna, Springsteen, Streisand, Rondstat, etc. can say anything they want about Bush, Republicans, conservatives, etc.

If you tell them to shut up they scream “censorship”.

Someone like Nugent, on the right, does the same thing and they blow a gasket and really do want him censored.

I’m so sick and tired of these people. I no longer have the paitience to tolerate these moronic parasitic scumbags. Since their mothers didn’t do us a favor and abort them I hope their therapists suggest seeing Dr. Kivorkian.

Winners like George Herbert Walker Bush? Or Bush II? They were winners, but we lost. If you are a conservative then the Republican candidates are not too exciting.
