Rocker Ted Nugent is off his rocker
The Kansas City Star
Ted Nugent says he will be at Tuesday night’s State of the Union, bringing his arch-conservative views - but no guns - to the Capitol.
Nugent will be the guest of U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman, a Texas Republican (surprise) who stands ready to try to impeach President Barack Obama if he takes steps to control America’s gun violence.
The media often call Nugent a “rocker,” referring to his status as a rock musician. But Americans aren’t buying his music anymore; his last best-selling album was issued 32 years ago.
And in many ways, Nugent is more “off his rocker” these days.
He’s called people who voted for Obama “soulless fools.”
Nugent, a National Rifle Association board member, has made inane comments about the Second Amendment and how it must be defended at all costs (forget the rights of those 20 kids slaughtered in Newtown, Conn.).
And last year Nugent said he would wind up either “dead or in jail” if Obama were re-elected - an implication that Nugent would be in trouble for trying to attack the President of the United States.
Well, he got that one wrong - at least so far.
Instead, Nugent is going to be seated in the same room as the president Tuesday night.
Thanks goodness for that First Amendment, which protects Americans’ right to criticize their government.
