Ted Nugent had a visit from the Secret Service in April 2012, after making comments about President Obama.
“We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November,” said the hard rocking guitar player, referring to Democrats, at a National Rifle Association event. Nugent also said that if President Barack Obama is re-elected, he would be “dead or in jail by this time next year.” Taken literally, the comments sound like a threat of violence, but the singer has since stated he was speaking figuratively.
Well, Cat Scratch Fever is a 1977 song from Ted Nugent, about a man that can’t control his sexual appetite. To many, with his Obama political rhetoric, the conservative activist and singer needs help controlling his mouth, too?
Another quote from the Republican party supporter, who has also considered running for Governor of Michigan: “”Obama’s a piece of s**t, and I told him to suck on my machine gun.” (source: Rolling Stone Magazine, 2007)
Perhaps you lament the divisive, polarized operation of American party politics. Do you long for a return to some mythical era of civil political discourse? It was probably never like you imagine (ummm, American Revolution and civil war…).
Besides, what a fool’s errand to look for leadership to Ted Nugent, a man that sings here about losing his virginity at age 10. Surely, dignity and decorum would be nice to see from politicians more often. But fans of the guitar hero don’t want him sipping chamomile tea and eating delicate little cucumber sandwiches.
