RRC Extra No. 33: Wango Tango Makes
Perfect Sense Compared to This
Ted Nugent is slated to make a live appearance tonight at the State of the Union speech, arriving as a guest of his Congressman, Steve Stockman, who recently announced he was pursuing impeachment of the President. Presuming Ted shows, and presuming the Secret Service lets him in despite Ted's avowal that he'll be 20 pounds lighter from leaving his guns at home, how many other people in the room do you figure:
1) Are currently on federal probation (stemming from a 2012 plea agreement for illegal hunting)?
2) Have been vetted by the Secret Service after making open threats against the life of the President who is giving the speech?
3) Have been accused--without refutation--by Courtney Love of having sex with her when she was 12 years old? (Nugent, by the way, would have been 28.)
4) Openly proclaim not only that the Southern traitors should have won the Civil War but that the only "real Americans" are "working hard, playing hard, white motherfucking shit kickers"?
This is to say nothing of Nugent's other bigoted sexist, racist and homicidal pronouncements which will, it apparently goes almost without saying, be shared by a significant number of attendees.
Nugent's appearance is even more odd given that he proclaimed during the election that if Obama was re-elected he'd be "either dead or in jail." Or maybe it's his ghost who'll fill the seat?
