Ted “Motor City Madman” Nugent To Attend State Of The Union Address
Part-time musician, one-time Motor City Madman, and full-time, well…madman, Ted Nugent, will be a guest of Texas Representative Steve Stockman at President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday. “I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama,” said Stockman, following with, “After the address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”
Oh I’m sure Uncle Ted will hardly be able to contain himself, but just how much of it will be coherent? Of course the reason Nugent is getting an invitation is because he is an outspoken gun lunatic. Since some people in the country think assault weapons are unnecessary in a civilized society, the “look at me, I’m holding a gun” crowd needs to represent. If gun control advocates are going to be in the chamber, so too will card-carrying NRA circus clowns.
By the way, do you cringe when one good ol’ boy refers to another good ol’ boy as a “patriot?” Yeah, me too. For that matter, the word patriot just rubs me the wrong way anymore. Probably because the extreme right-wing has co-opted the term for its own purposes, among other reasons.
