Why does Ted Nugent hate America?
"Remember the Alamo! Shoot 'em!" he screamed to applause. "To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead. I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want 'em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot 'em."
Perhaps someone should break it to him that the Constitution doesn't stop at the Second Amendment. And then tell him that his music sucks.

Or maybe he could just choke to death and then be stuffed inside Tom DeLay.

Sort of a turducken of right wingers?

Why, yes! So stuff Turkey A into DuckButt B and then deep fry the whole thing in lard.
Hey, it's Atkins approved!

My husband and I saw Ted open for ZZ Top a couple of years back (at the start of the Iraq 'war') and the backdrop behind the band was an obscenely large American flag. He strutted around the stage screaming pro-war rhetoric, then took a longbow and shot a flaming arrow into a huge effigy of Saddam Hussein. The most disturbing thing was the screaming approval of the rednecks in the audience. He kept screaming "No sheeeeeet" over and over like it meant something. We only came to the concert because we liked ZZ's music; we hadn't planned on the wingnut fan base.
That was the day that my husband (born in London and in the states for 15 years) and I decided to move to the UK.

I find Ted Nugent to be highly amusing. His persona is so over the top, it's as close to camp as one can be and still be heterosexual. He could be the seventh member of the Village People - the Indian, the cop, the construction worker, the cowboy, the leather man, the GI, and the Michigan Militia member. Now that would be a disco concert to die for.

Just curious - where was he during that whole Viet Nam thing?

Oh yeah. Now I remember.
"He claims that 30 days before his draft board physical, he stopped all forms of personal hygiene. The last 10 days, he ingested nothing but Vienna sausages and Pepsi; and a week before his physical, he stopped using bathrooms altogether, virtually living inside pants caked with his own excrement, stained by his urine. That spectacle won Nugent a deferment, he says. ‘... but if I would have gone over there, I'd have been killed, or I'd have killed, or I'd killed all the hippies in the foxholes...I would have killed everybody.’” -- Detroit Free Press Magazine, July 15, 1990"
