Ted Nugent to attend the State of the Union address on Tuesday
GOP Rep. Steve Stockman office will be scheduling interviews for Nugent after Obama's remarks to a joint session of Congress.
"I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House chamber to hear from President Obama," said Stockman, R-Texas. "After the address, I'm sure Ted will have plenty to say."
Well, if anyone yells "You Lie!" this year, we'll know who it was...
It's always nice to have a fellow hater your side.
Stockman forgot to leave in "...and none of it coherent."
[quote] I'm sure Ted will have plenty to say.
He will, but it will have nothing to do with the actual address. He's too stupid to actually listen to a speech and take notes, so it's a 110% chance his "rebuttal" will already be written (by someone else). Republicans don't answer questions or respond to what is said, they have a recorded track ready to go, much like Beyonce lip-synching the National Anthem.
Here's hoping he loses it and gets ejected from Congress's chambers on national television.
I wish someone on camera (maybe a member of the "liberal" media) would ask him why he avoided the draft while simultaneously being in favor of the war in Vietnam.
Ted Nugent was before my time. Was he really that famous way back when? I don't think I've ever heard a single one of his songs.
He should be in jail for his comments about the President and other members of Congress. I cannot believe they will allow someone who is treasonous and seditious to attend a State of the Union address.
[quote]He should be in jail for his comments about the President and other members of Congress. I cannot believe they will allow someone who is treasonous and seditious to attend a State of the Union address.
Why isn't he dead or in jail yet like he promised if Obama won?
Does he really expect the Secret Service to let him in after they had to investigate this statement? I don't think so. So tonight we're going to hear Ted Nugent talk about how his First Amendment rights were violated when he was forbidden from assembling peacefully with the others in the gallery. You know it's going to happen. Tea party stunt. Nothing new here.

Honey, he was before most people's time. He's a one hit wonder, "Cat Scratch Fever". That's it.
Also liked fucking 12 year old girls.
I hope someone asks him why he chose not to bring a machine gun into the Capitol, as is his 2nd Amendment right.
Or that fucking crossbow.
r11 you forgot the classic gem "Wango Tango"
Maybe he'll forget they are going to search him and he'll be packing,(guns, we know he a tiny dick) and he'll get carted off.
Who could forget the lyrical poetry of "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" ?
He threatened the President's life.
I wonder if he'll shit and piss his pants for two weeks before the event.
Cat Scratch Stevens
The Secret Service will not allow Ted Nugent to be present at the State of the Union address. No way. And the ass hole who invited him should be barred, too.
Yeah, no way the Secret Service will allow him to attend.
How does such a mentally imbalanced person get this much coverage. Doesn't the public realize that he is mentally disturbed?
On second thought, best to let him attend and make a fool of himself afterwards.
Take attention away from the GOP's rebuttal.
I can appreciate Ted Nugent's attitude toward drugs although with my mother in pain from hip surgery I am totally in favor of legalizing mariquana.Tke a belt to the bibile belt!And Ted Nugent surely cannot be hypocritical enough to be religious.Don't make me vomit from cat-scatch fever Nuge!!But I do think he and his NRA cohorts are extremely irresponsible!They put guns into the hands of maniacs so they're children can learn to shoot deer and cute little rabbits although I am not a vegetarian.I want to pet animals not kill them.My bottom line,however,is this:Ted Nugent says that when you find a graduate of the Ted Nugent Camp For Kids,you will not find an addict or a drunk or someone wondering which nipple to pierce,BUT..There is one thing Ted Nugent cannot promise!He cannot promise that when we find a graduate of the Ted Nugent Camp For Kids,we will not find a budding young psychopath contemplating whether or not to shoot down his fellow campers or wait till autumn and take out his school or heck,just go out on the street and declare war on weekday rush-hour traffic!You cannot tell 100% what's in the human mind until often its too late.Think about that the next time you put a Colt 45 in a 12 year-old's anxious hand Nuge.Happy camping.
Of all the Presidents, Obama has been the worst served, so I'll bet the SS will let Nugent attend with the crossbow and a AR-15.
I like a lot of Ted's music and I don't judge him for liking young girls.I do too.I wish I could find a teenage girl whose parents would let me adopt her like Ted;s second wife's parents let him.Maybe he beat up some stoner,took his weed and gave it to her parents.Ha ha But politically and ideologically,he's and idiot.how can he say he loves life when he takes it from animals so joyously?
Obama is not the worst president.Dubya was closer and ixon,but if anything happens to Obama there will be a race-war in this country I bet.
Freeper alert! Seriously, this track mark's highest charting album reached a pathetic #13 on the Billboard chart. How FLACCID.
Read people. Read. R25 said that he is the president who has been worst served by the Secret Service, not that he's the worst president. Remember the Colombian prostitute scandal? I recall there was some other similar problem with another advance team elsewhere. Oh yeah, and letting those party crashing reality stars into the Obamas' first state dinner. Not terribly well served.
Why was he never prosecuted for having sex with teenage girls?
Their parents never filed complaints.
Why is this one-hit wonder from 35 years ago still given the time of day? Why is he newsworthy? Are we going to get a rebuttal from the Captain and Tennille?
The Republican definition of "patriot" is angry racist christian xenophobe behaving treasonously.
R31, isn't statutory rape supposed to be prosecuted by the state regardless?
WHY shouldn't he be arrested ON THE SPOT? He's made an open and viable threat against the president. He is clearly UNSTABLE.
The fact that some Republican Douchbag is giving him an iota of legitimacy says sooo much about their own fucked up party.
[quote]Why is he newsworthy?
His only relevance is the fact that he makes threats against the President. He owes any resurgence in his career to his BLACK President.
I know someone like Ted Nugent but way better looking. Same type. The whole neighborhood remembers when he got sick.
Isn't he dead yet? What happened to him committing suicide? I am sure he will have plenty to say he always does and most people won't listen. Douchebag.
That is unsettling to think that might be able to get in. They better check him over but good for any weapons.
Since when can congressman invite random people to the State of the Union?
This will increase the flyover viewership.
Does the GOP know that good old patriotic Ted is a Vietnam draft dodger who soiled himself to avoid serving?
Well the Secret Service better step in and deal with this. Nugent poses a threat. He's made a threat. It was clear direct and easily understood. He has not backed away from it.
He doesn't belong in the chamber. He needs to go on Fox and comment on the speech. Or be Hannity's guest, or Glenn Beck & Rush Limbaugh.
I sincerely hope that they scan everyone and put every one thru metal detectors. Ted Nugent isn't the only one who'd like to see this President gone. He isn't the only asshole who's been invited.
President Obama may as well make his speech in a baseball stadium. The extremists who fought him these past five years are still around and they are an unstable angry mob. with guns. I worry.
prick to ass ,Ted, prick to ass.
Someone should put a stop to this and point out Ted's comments about the President last year.
"[R11] you forgot the classic gem "Wango Tango""
Ted was actually in a rock band in the 1960s, The Amboy Dukes. They had a hit record with "Journey To the Center of Your Mind".
Here's Teddy Boy in his youth. I couldn't find any photos of the band in their Fop Finery, they favored velvet jackets, satin pants and lace shirts.
Wonder if Buckskin Boy Ted has hired people to wipe all traces of those old photos off the Internet!
[quote]Are we going to get a rebuttal from the Captain and Tennille?
That would be awesome! Or Barbra Streisand.
Someone should ask him what it's like to be seated in the Ladies' Gallery.
I hope he makes what is interpreted as a threatening motion towards Obama and the Secret Service blows him away.
Democrats have to get out there and raise holy hell. This man threatened the POTUS. Even if you think he wouldn't get in, make a fuss over it to make the GOP look bad for this stunt. Call them un-American. Score political points.
He's supposed to be DEAD or IN JAIL.
The problem is that Ted has successfully gotten away with presenting himself as patriotic, conservative, dedicated to family values etc.
More people need to know about his draft dodging and underage sex.
[R31], isn't statutory rape supposed to be prosecuted by the state regardless?
Please tell me how the state would know of a violation unless the "vigilant" parents of girl(s) didn't alert the authorities of some Ted Nugent shenanigans with underage girls?
Please tell me how, otherwise, plain 'ol lower middle-class parents are supposed to demonstrate and prove that the man they relinquished their daughter to for full legal adoption didn't want to fuck her inside and out? Can you prove or demonstrate fully that the Motor City Mad Man isn't a full blown child fucker? Nope.
Other than being an older man who adopted her a fully mature menstruating female with who he had relations (with her parents consent at the age of 16), I have no idea how tea baggers believe these relations work. I'm flumoxxed. I
R34 -- You really should stop trying to be so disingenuous on liberal sites when your displays do not demonstrate a great deal of intelligence or candor when there are lawyers about. Or newspapers. Or neighbors. Or anyone with the capacity to read.
What the hell are you talking about, R53? All I asked is why Ted Nugent shouldn't have been prosecuted since he is on film in a documentary admitting it.
I didn't ask for you to go into a whole moral debate where you accuse me of being some sort of a Teabagger. What is the matter with you?
On behalf of Texas, I apologize. It was that idiot Stockman who invited him.
Wow, R54. Did you really say all that? Because it's damn near impossible to figure out who you favor in this debate.
I just think nothing good is going to come out of Teddy's appearance...
[quote]I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent
So, draft dodgers are now patriots?
The Smiths sold more records than this ass-clown ever has.
Could someone please help me...? I'm looking for the quote where Crazy Ted said IF HE HAD gone to Vietnam, he would've singlehandedly won the war. I swear this ass stain said that but I'm having trouble finding it online.
In 1978, Nugent began a relationship with seventeen-year-old Hawaii native Pele Massa. Due to the age difference they could not marry so Nugent joined Massa's parents in signing documents to make himself her legal guardian, an arrangement that Spin magazine ranked in October 2000 as #63 on their list of the "100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock."
Nugent told the Detroit Free Press in 1990 that he meticulously planned to get out of the war. He stopped bathing 30 days before going before the draft board and later ate nothing but junk food and Pepsi. A few days before his appointment, Nugent started defecating in his pants. It obviously worked — and it's a good thing, because "if I would have gone over there, I’d have been killed, or I’d have killed all the Hippies in the foxholes. I would have killed everybody."
Spin Magazine edited by Bob Guccione's son? He should know sleaze when he sees it.
[quote]What the hell are you talking about, [R53]? All I asked is why Ted Nugent shouldn't have been prosecuted since he is on film in a documentary admitting it.
Do you think the guy is stupid enough to discuss sexual relations with underage girls when the statute of limitations is still operative?
more from above link
"My being there [South Africa c. 1990] isn’t going to affect any political structure. Besides, apartheid isn’t that cut-and-dry. All men are not created equal."
"I think that Barack Hussein Obama should be put in jail. It is clear that Barack Hussein Obama is a communist. Mao Tse Tung lives and his name is Barack Hussein Obama. This country should be ashamed. I wanna throw up," he said, adding "Obama, he’s a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun."
"What’s a feminist anyways? A fat pig who doesn’t get it often enough?"

So anyhow, and I’m dead serious…"
[quote]What the hell are you talking about, [R53]? All I asked is why Ted Nugent shouldn't have been prosecuted since he is on film in a documentary admitting it.
I don't think Ted is dumb enough to discuss the sex he's had with underage minors while the statute of limitations is still operative. It depends on the state, but it's generally 7-10 years for statutory rape.
Sorry about the double post. I've had problems with connectivity this morning.
Is this interview satire? Seriously, he's disturbed.
I hope they search him really really well. He's an unhinged lunatic.
ANyone who supports him (Nugent) should be deeply ashamed.
R67, that's a real interview. The guy writes for Vice magazine. Ted is basically saying that he shot a cat, it had a collar on it and he's disappointed that it "didn't dance around" enough. How the fuck has 4chan not annihilated this cat-killing motherfucker
His remark in that WaPo article is still pretty threatening.
Greetings from America, I bring you greetings from the land of the free and the home of the brave to LA., land of the numbnut, I love going to Los Angeles because they desperately need me there. When we played the House of Blues, I heard that more than a dozen gay guys ate pussy that night.
I just read you made an offer of some kind to Lance from N'Sync.
Well, he doesn't need to go the moon. He needs to be a self-sufficient, independent American dream spirit. And he is obviously missing that dramatically if he still buys into the monkey's formula in the year 2002. I just thought I'd give him a shot at real manhood. I offered to bring him onto the Nugent Swamp and show him where Lewis and Clark witnessed Sacajawea. I killed a beautiful buck this morning, and all the vocalists and musicians of the world need to qet their hands bloody at least up to their elbows in guts once a year. I think all those formula bands are really pathetic.
What do you think of Insane Clown Posse?
It's another formula band. That's just like The Monkeys but without any brains. Since Richard Pryor caught on fire I haven't had a good laugh 'til the Clown Posses came along. In fact, they have a song, I think it's called "Fuck Ted," and they ridicule my music. If you hate me, you are a great, great source of inspiration and then comedy. I just howl and cheer his spirit. I thank them so dearly for that.
I spoke with them yesterday.
That had to have been just like cleaning the latrine with your lips. Which you shouldn't do.
Violent J said that he was a big fan of yours, and they weren't serious about dissing you on the record.
They're just having fun, I think.
Then he followed it with, "But if he's an asshole about it, then he can suck our dick." And I was like, "I'm not sure that he's going to accept your apology."
First of all, not only do I not accept it. I see no need for one. I think they're cute. You know, when I see a three-legged dog, I'don't shoot it right away. I want to watch it dance around a while. I shot a fucking cat this morning. And when I went and retrieved it, it had this beautiful studded collar on it. I kid you not. For you city kids who might recoil in fear when I mention such things, believe me, there is an epidemic of feral dogs and cats in In this country that are spreading rabies and distemper and disease across the land. The only responsible thing to do is to kill them. I did a job for both you and me today. So I want you to just shut up and thank me.
I think all cats should be killed regardless.
Now you're talking, buddy. I did a terrible job because I used a 10 millimeter, and it just killed him instantly. I'd rather have him dance around like an Insane Clown Posse for at least a couple minutes before he dies. But next time I'll aim a little lower.
Ted, how many confirmed kills do you have?
Certainly, thousands and thousands. I mean, in the '70s and '80s, I used to keep track of such things, and there were years of 400-500. I have since modified my gut-pilled jihad to be strictly effective not just wanting. So everything I kill now is put to the maximum utilization.
Have you ever killed a man?
Not yet. I think I've caused some serious torso and psychological alterations according to the death threats I've gotten. What a beautiful bonus God has blessed me with. The confusion I reign across the retarded landscape is more important than platinum albums and big giant bucks. It's almost pussy, man. But, no, I've never killed a man.
Were you in Vietnam?
We lost didn't we? My point being, if I'd have been in Vietnam, we would have won.
Would you have padded your number of kills with the dead babies?
No, that would have been considered a legitimate kill.
A dead baby is a legitimate kill?
Malai would have been a yawn if I would have been in Vietnam. Let's get serious here. Right now, we don't even have to go back to the Vietnam era. You've seen videos of the training camps over in gomer voodoo land? The training camps are training little children to hate America. Evil doesn't have an age restriction, okay. I don't care the age or the breed of the dog that is foaming at the mouth approaching my child. I'm going to shoot the motherfucker. Are we clear? Drive safely.
You have a camp over there that you invite people to come and hunt with you.
Absolutely, I have camps in Africa. All across North America. Yeah, I crave the campfire. And, actually, it doesn't cost more to hunt with the Nuge, you see it costs less to hunt with the Nuge. When I take people on sunrise safaris, Uncle Ted campfire adventures, I can literally take a $5,500 hunt that you would pay at a typical ranch in Texas, and I can probably cut that down to half price, only $2,500.
How would one of our readers get a hold of you if they wanted to go on one of these?
Tednugent.com and certainly at 800-343-HUNT. I will guide more than 400 hunters this season, and it's a spiritual orgy, man.
Have you ever used a fresh deer pelt as a Halloween costume?
No, but I've worn it on stage just to scare white people. I'm the only rock 'n' roller that actually kills his own stage clothes. I mention that every night on stage that anytime any person uses the word animal and rights in the same sentence, I'm gonna kill a hundred of something. So don't even fuck with me. There will be blood on your hands and in your family tree.
You have a new cookbook Kill it and Grill it, but have you ever eaten road kill?
Yes, I have. In fact, probably in more than a dozen states, Chris, I have spearheaded legislation and acted into laws allowing citizens to use fresh road kill. In many states it was illegal to possess it, and that's absurd. There is a lot of good protein there. When you hit that animal, you should do everything possible to recover the usable portions. We've seen deer hit on the highways, and, as a sheriff deputy, I've gotten out and killed the animal outright while he flopped around. That's happend probably dozens of times. I'll sit right there and pick up my knife and render it into family-sized portions.
Have you ever eaten an opossum?
Yes and it was one too many. Opossum is a staple down South.
Being a sheriff, what's the worst thing you've come across?
If you read the first chapter of God, Guns and Rock 'N' Roll you'll see a gory, detailed review of my encounter. A life-and-death, hair lined, life threatening force collision that occurred on the streets of Miami many years ago. where I was already of the mindset of using deadly force to neutralize the evil, but I did not have to revert to that. I was able to diplomatically and physically neutralize the threat. There were two thugs about to kill an off-duty cop with his own gun. I intervened. It was pretty neat.
What did you do?
I basically called 911 as clear and quickly as I possibly could. Then I cleared my Glock, I did not draw it, but I cleared it. I produced my deputy shield, and I forced the two perpetrators off the cop. They were prying his fingers from his revolver at the time. It was really awesome. Not because I'm awesome, but because the conditions were awesome, and man is awesome when man uses his gifts from God in a proper way.
What do you think the best source of protein on the earth is?
Deadstuff. Deadstuff is one word, by the way, Chris. If you misspell it, I'll have to reprimand you. No. my favorite is probably venison. The backstrap. the succulent slap that resides against the spinal column of herbivores with garlic and butter. It's almost sex.
Would you have a problem, if it came down to it one day, eating another man?
Not if it meant survival. No. I wouldn't even hesitate. It'd be a damn shame, but I wouldn't hesitate. Whatever it takes to live.
I heard one of my friends went to your show in San Diego.
I bet he's still fuming with exaltations. Did he tell you I'm the funniest motherfucker in the world?
He said you're a good aim.
No doubt I am. I shoot my bow and arrow on stage. I've been doing that since like 1963. And during the one encore, "Great White Buffalo," I shoot a flaming arrow at one of my guitars hung up in the amplifiers and blow it to smithereens every night.
Have you ever missed?
Yes. I missed twice. That's in, I don't know, 4,000 concerts. I think I almost killed a guy once. It was beautiful. The arrow went through the speakers and stuck in the wall. It was cute.
You know there's a skateboarder by the name of Don Ngyuen. They call him the Nuge.
He better be good.
A gook! You gotta love that. I've always had this thing for gooks. You gotta love gooks. Fuckin' little tunnel-diggin' monkeys. I think they're so cute.
Do you have a problem with him having the same name as you?
No, not at all, man. Go nuts. Makes me proud. I love guys that dig holes to put sharp sticks in to kill assholes. You got to love those little monkeys.
Did you steal the show every night from KISS?
Oh, absolutely. There's no question about that. Just phenomenal. You know, you can't beat cartoons. Cartoons are cool, and I give KISS credit for being the ultimate cartoon band.
Do you get more pussy than Gene Simmons?
Per pound, he's got me beat. Probably a hundredfold. But I don't consider that pussy. He is the fat-mama king. I wouldn't fuck those girls with your dick, okay?
I'd just put it this way. No man in the history of the world has been so privileged and blessed with more of the most beautiful, firm, buoyant, uppity, cocky, perfect babes than Uncle Ted. Guarantee it. That's all I'm going to say because I'm married, and Mrs. Nugent is a crack shot. And I don't want her shooting at my crack.
I guess the GOP doesn't know that Nugent is a Vietnam draft dodger and that he had sex with underage teenage girls?
I hope he's completely ignored, he's a worthless piece of shit.
Thanks, R73. I signed.
They're letting a lunatic who publicly threatened the President's life into the SotU address?
Fucking morons. I hope they put an agent up Nugent's ass and a ball-gag in Nugent's mouth.
[quote]They're letting a lunatic who publicly threatened the President's life into the SotU address?
That's what I find amazing about this. Why doesn't the Secret Service overrule the Republican Congressman?
Lot of anger. Seems kind of closeted.
I liked Nugent's first few solo albums in the mid-late '70s, and I attended several of his concerts. I didn't realize he was such a whacko until about 15 years ago. He really seems to have gone off the deep end. I think he is in dire need of psychiatric help. Maybe he and Mel Gibson can share a padded cell someday.
Wing Wong Sweet Ding Dong
What I find amusing--and disgusting--about Nugent is that he is a D list musican. Let's face it. Would anyone even know who he was if he did not get the attention he does with the media?
In the 70's, Nugent was a has been who kept his name afloat largely through the effort of "Creem" magazine. They would interview him and give him space. Why? Because "Creem" had to be "different" from "Rolling Stone" and "Crawdaddy," the more "mainstream" rock magazines. Of course the irony is that "Creem" contributors Dave Marsh and Lester Bangs would become mainstream themselves. The latter was (and still is)considered a punk guru, when in fact much of what he wrote was blather and the bands he advocated amounted to nothing.
Anyway, Nugent has endured, despite the fact no one buys his records or hears his songs on the radio. Amazing. The fact that he is given the same attention as Bono or Springsteen is just one more damning comment about the fact that the media could care less about intelligence and truth.
It's all about outrage. This is why Stockman and Nugent endure. They make "news."
So was he there?
I hope Dick Cheney gets invited to one of Nugent's hunting trips.
If he was in attendance, they put him on complete media blackout.
Photo of him turned up. They put him all the way in the back. It's hilarious.
Did he attend in his loincloth and moccasins? Did he soil himself in advance? I understand that he attended the event as part of a package deal, the "One-Hit Wonders of 1977". His fellow attendees were Alan O'Day, Ram Jam, Celi Bee & The Buzzy Bunch, Debby Boone, Peter McCann, David Soul, Meri Wilson and Thelma Houston.
[quote]Did he attend in his loincloth and moccasins?
I kept picturing that, too. I at least thought he'd dress up in a bolero tie with a tiny steer skull closure, but no...
What a miserable-looking bunch in that picture, r95.
[R95] Wow, talk about the "cheap seats". Maybe he got some from that bored bitch on his right.
thank you r95; his expression and back of the rows seating made me laugh out loud.
is that his surly teenage daughter to his right, or his current love interest?
R98 - It can't be his love interest. She's at least a decade too old for him to be interested in.
[quote]Strange that they allowed him to attend, given the fact that he has threatened the President.
This is the question that any other President would pose to his SS chief (right before he fired him) but O doesn't have the balls.
R108 read R105
Ted was never mentioned nor was he shown on camera on the coverage I saw. As if he fucking did not exist.
The fool also threatened himself but doesn't have the guts to deliver. They probably just figured his threats were an attempt to get his mommies attention.
Did FUX news interview him?
Oh dear, r107. That "bitch" has gayface for days!
Why on earth should the President give a flying fuck or be concerned about a weasel like Ted Nugent?
[quote]What a miserable-looking bunch in that picture, [R95].
Most of them are people who lost loved ones in gun violence.
r109 -- this proves O is afraid of everything. If the great and mighty O was unconcerned with Ted oozing around the chamber, he would be equally unconcerned if Ted was oozing around talking shows.
I'm glad this idiot was there.
And as for the SS not disallowing his presence because of threats, as woefully inept as the SS has been (Columbia) I still give them enough credit for being able to distinguish between an actual danger to the POTUS and a big mouthed, draft-dodging, village idiot like Nugent.
It's the quiet ones they worry about, not chicken-shit assholes like Nugent.
R114 what a deluded fuck you are.
In the '70s, with that loincloth, etc., I thought he looked like a Village People reject. He could easily have been a member of that group. As far back as the mid-1970's, Ted Nugent pinged off the charts for me as a deeply, deeply, deeply, deeply repressed and closeted gay man.
The Ghost of Jacques Morali
I have never heard any of his "music". I was born several years after his supposed hit song that I have never heard. I would look it up on YouTube, but I have no interest in that vile redneck cunt. I hate Country Music, so I would never listen to his hillbilly shit in the first place. Country Music is full of extreme right-wing nuts like him. I can't imagine why anyone would listen to that uneducated, backwoods, bigoted, Grand Ole Opry corn. Fuck Nugent right up his ignorant hillbilly shithole!
R114, are you really so delusional as to believe Ted Nugent occupies any part of the president's head?
Outside of this little invite and the pics I posted of him from last night, Nugent occupies NO time in my head - and I got nothing to do! So why in the hell do you think the president would give a shit about this loser?
thank you r119!
Obama ignores idiots like Sarah Palin and the Nuge. They eventually slink away.
R118, As vile as Nugent is, he was never Country. His music was more of the Hard Rock variety. Very simplistic, three chord rock. He was FAR, FAR inferior in talent and musical quality to the better Hard Rock acts of the day like Blue Oyster Cult, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Queen, Rush, Bad Company, Cheap Trick, Foghat, ZZ Top, Pink Floyd, Robin Trower, etc. He has pretty much been a has-been since 1978, or so. A sad, pathetic man. If you are not familiar with him, you didn't miss anything.
What r122 said -- in the 70s, guitar rock ruled and there were a slew of masters. When Ted came up, it was just to note, "Oh, he's good, too."
Agreed, R122. I can think of at least 20 more acts better than Nugent in the '70s, a few: Yes, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Scorpions, Rainbow, Judas Priest, The Kinks, The Who, Boston, U.F.O., Thin Lizzy, Budgie, Styx, Heart, The Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Clash. Even Kiss was superior to "The Nuge." Of his songs, I liked "Stranglehold", "Motor City Madhouse", "Just What The Doctor Ordered", "Free For All" and "Cat Scratch Fever" --- that's it! I saw him open for Kiss in 1975 and I thought he was average at best. Kiss blew his ass in the weeds a thousand times over.
So THIS is who Nugent was sat next to!
Love it. LOVE IT!
R121, to say Obama ignores them would be giving them too much credit. To ignore would involve effort. They're not even on his radar.
At the WHCD, Obama was reading jokes about Trump that he probably hadn't seen before that night - Obama obviously had other things on his mind, like Pakistan.
He doesn't have time for these fools and their inflated egos.
Nugent is a damaged individual mentally. I think he was dropped on his head repeatedly, as an infant. The hilarious thing is that he thinks of himself as a "great thinker" and an intellectual. Please! I can't stand that Nazi fuck!
I grew up in a small town. When I was a kid, there was this old crazy man that hung out downtown every day. He was a tinhat schizophrenic who was off his meds and ranted loudly on the street corners about the communists taking over, the government was watching our every move and was out to destroy us, and that we all needed to prepare for the 'end of days' which were upon us. Nugent is now the exact clone of that man. Long hair in a pony tail, the goatee, and style of dress are identical (down to the cowboy hat and bolo tie). I think Nugent has the same paranoid delusions. The resemblance, both physically and mentally, is uncanny.
I love that he was seated next to Thomas Lauderdale. What a background. Favorite line from his bio:
Lauderdale studied at Harvard University, where he graduated cum laude with a degree in History and Literature. He spent most of his time in college in cocktail dresses, throwing waltzes with live orchestras and ice sculptures; disco masquerades with gigantic pineapples on wheels; nude midnight swimming parties in the Adams House swimming pool; and operating a Tuesday night coffeehouse called Café Mardi.
Wow! This thread is the most attention and print Nugent has received in the last 35 years. His star must be back on the rise. Pretty soon his concerts will be selling out dive clubs again. LoL!
Inviting Ted Nugent to attend the event wasn't a dick move. It was a move only a Bravo Reality Show celebrity would pull while calling a mobile phone with an Andy Cohen ringtone (that goes like this 'It is me, Andy Cohen! Bitch, pick up!') her own.
This whole scenario made it all better. Whoever made up the seating chart has a well-developed sense of irony/malice. Turns out the talked -- music.
After all that brouhaha over Ted Nugent — you know, the guy who threatened to kill President Obama — getting invited to the State of the Union by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), the hard-talking, pants-shitting rocker was seldom seen throughout the evening.
But the one photo of Nugent that did make the rounds was publicized not from Stockman's camp, but rather from that of Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), the congressman who invited Nugent's seatmate — Portland musician Thomas Lauderdale.
Lauderdale, best known for founding the "little orchestra" known as Pink Martini, is the anti-Ted Nugent: A liberal, Occupy-Movement-supporting, openly gay civil rights activist who favors gun control and loves classical music.
But for all their differences, the two did apparently manage to find common ground, and, according to Lauderdale at least, had a pretty pleasant chat.
He wrote in an email to BlueOregon:
[quote]I was totally not expecting to be seated next to Ted Nugent at the State of the Union .... but it was incredible. We talked about hunting ... in Texas (where he has lived for the past 10 years) and Michigan (where he grew up). Growing up he was inspired by Dick Dale ... and later by the British Invasion bands of the mid-60s ... The Yardbirds ... The Rolling Stones. He only tours in the summer. I asked him if he did USO tours. He has ... BUT is probably the only celebrity who carried his own machine gun. (Shockingly, I don't have a machine gun of my own.) He thought this year's Grammys were too "bubblegum" and childish. And, of all of his compositions, "Fred Bear" means the most to him ... people ask for it at their funerals, their barmitzvahs, their graduations ... "It doesn't get more "wow" than that," he said. At the end of the night, he shook my hand, and wished me luck. I thought he was a real gentleman.
Unfortunately, the gap-bridging didn't carry over to the night's main event.
Following the President's speech, Nugent took to Twitter to assure his followers that he remained as headstrong as ever. "It deeply pains me to report that the prez is a master scam artist," Nugent wrote. "Didn't believe a word."
Then again, it's unclear if he was even paying attention.
According to Slate's Dave Weigel, the Nuge didn't stand up for anything the president said — not even "our brave men and women in uniform are coming home."
[quote]"Didn't believe a word."
Probably because you couldn't even hear him from that distance, asshole.
If he said he didn't believe a word, doesn't that imply that he was in agreement with the content, but since he considers Obama to be disreputable he cannot bring himself to believe what he heard? Is this code that he likes what Obama said?
If I could fit that into 140 characters, I'd tweet him.
can think of at least 20 more acts better than Nugent in the '70s
Rod Stewart and the Faces
Mott the Hoople
[quote]I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House chamber
Does Stockman know that this 'patriot' had sex with underage girls and soiled himself to avoid serving in Vietnam?
So much good is coming from his attendance at the SOTU. From the msnbc link at R132.
[quote]When challenged by NBC news reporter Luke Russert over comments he made last year, comparing Democrats like Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton to coyotes who deserve to be shot, Nugent became agitated, cursing at Russert and calling him a liar in vulgar terms.
Nugent is loathsome, but even he's a better musician than KISS.
Derek and the Dominoes
J Geils Band
Steve Miller Band
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Ten Years After
John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band
Creedence's Clearwater Revival
As long as they were inviting Nugents, couldn't they have asked me? Oh, wait, I'm remarried. Never mind.
Luci Baines Johnson (formerly) Nugent
R140, But Kiss were so cute and cuddly. Especially the teddy bear. Back in the day I would have pulled the trigger of Paul Stanley's Love Gun any day. Now, not so much.
One of the shows on MSNBC showed him being interviewed by DL fave Luke Russert. A real battle of intellects, that was.
I don't know who is crazier: Nugent or Mel Gibson. I would guess Gibson, but not by too much.
