Ted Nugent will not face any criminal charges for his rant earlier this week against Barack Obama.

Threatening the President is against the law, of course, and the musician was forced to meet with the Secret Service after relaying a metaphor to attendees at a NRA convention that concluded with:

"If the coyote's in your living room, pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."

"The Secret Service interview of Ted Nugent has been completed," spokesman Brian Leary told Yahoo News. "The issue has been resolved. The Secret Service does not anticipate any further action."

Well, not that kind of action at least... if you know what we mean!

Appearing prior to the meeting on Glenn Beck's radio show (above video), Nugent said:

"The bottom line is I've never threatened anybody's life in my life. I don't threaten, I don't waste breath threatening. I just conduct myself as a dedicated 'We the people' activist because I've saluted too many flag-draped coffins to not appreciate where the freedom comes from."

Mitt Romney's campaign is fighting back in the War on Dogs, excerpting a passage from President Obama's memoir in which he admits eating one as a kid.

The Daily Caller's Jim Treacher wrote a blog post with an excerpt from Dreams From My Father in which Obama writes of eating dog as a boy in Indonesia.

"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)," writes Obama.

Romney, Obama

Treacher brought out the excerpt as a way of responding to a very odd, old story that has haunted Romney since the Boston Globe first reported it in 2007.

The story goes like this: In 1983, Romney strapped the family dog's crate to the roof of the car for a 12-hour drive from Massachusetts to Canada.

On the trip, the dog, an Irish Setter named Seamus, suffered the "runs," as Ann Romney put it this week. Her husband coolly pulled over to hose off the dog and the car, then kept driving, with the dog back in the crate on the roof.

Comedian slash sort-of presidential candidate Roseanne Barr is laying into Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, over her recent remark that being a mom was her full-time job.

It's not that Barr supports Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen's comment (and subsequent apology) criticizing Ann for having "never worked a day in her life."

It's just that Ann's claim of raising five kids on her own is BS, Roseanne says.

  • Ann Romney Image
  • Roseanne's Nuts

"Mrs. Mitt Romney claims to have worked her toned ass off, raising five Romney males all on her own, as privileged wives often do ... but, no, Ann, I call bulls--t on your Big Mama story, girlfriend," Barr wrote in a column for The Daily Beast.

Barr went on criticizing Romney for claiming she did it all solo, with the exception of a little assistance from a maid who would come in a couple of hours a week.

Roseanne writes that Ann is basically full of it:

It's safe to say Ted Nugent has no regrets.

The conservative guitarist appeared on Dana Loesch's radio show and addressed his controversial rant against Barack Obama at a NRA convention over the weekend.

"I'm a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally," Nugent told the host of the backlash coming his way, including talk of a Secret Service investigation.

"And there are some power-abusing, corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth."

Did Nugent threaten the President's life? No, he says he's "incapable" of such an action and labeled himself "Mother Teresa with a guitar" compared to the machinations of Federal Government employees. Listen for yourself:

A Tumblr account entitled “Texts From Hillary” and featuring faux texts to and from Secretary of State and no-nonsense taskmaster Hillary Clinton is a must-see.

The premise is simple: An actual, recent photo of Clinton on her phone and looking incredibly bad ass is blended with political humor and hilarious text-speak.

Friends Adam Smith and Stacy Lambe, both communications professionals based in Washington, D.C., created the Tumblr account that went viral this month.

With gems like this, it's easy to see why ...

Clinton, Obama and Biden Texting

It turns out that Clinton, the country's top diplomat, is a big fan after hearing about it - and invited the creators of the meme to the State Department!

“It was great. She came out, she was all smiles, told us how much she likes the site and that people have been telling her all about it,” Smith said.

“She thinks it’s hilarious. It just captured this wonderful image of Hillary."

"You definitely could tell she was in charge. You could tell she was getting stuff done there was just no question that this woman was a total badass.”

Follow the jump for some other classic Texts from Hillary:

The Secret Service is looking into comments made this weekend by extreme right-winger Ted Nugent.

During a gathering sponsored by the National Rife Association, the rocker - referring to the upcoming election - urged members of the organization help "chop their heads off in November" and added:

"I'll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"

Referring to the current administration as "criminals," Nugent appeared to directly threaten Obama - which is a crime - by ranting:

"If the coyote's in your living room, pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."

Responded Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Mitt Romney, the candidate Nugent is backing: "Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil."

Targeting major tech companies including Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft for use of coal derived power, Greenpeace has issued a new report entitled How Clean is Your Cloud?

Given the energy-intensive nature of maintaining the cloud, access to significant amounts of electricity is a key factor in decisions about where to build these data centers.

Since electricity plays a critical role in the cost structure of companies that use the cloud, there have been dramatic strides made in improving the energy efficiency.

However, despite significant improvements in efficiency, the growth in cloud computing far outstrips these energy savings, and coal is still the cheapest power source.

Not to mention the dirtiest.

greenpeace

The study covers 14 Internet giants, but singles out Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft as the biggest offenders. Apple derives the most data center power (55%) from coal.

Apple is building a 20-megawatt solar farm and 5-megawatt fuel cell facility at its new data center in Maiden, N.C., but Greenpeace downplays their significance.

Greenpeace takes Apple to task for its decision to locate its data center in North Carolina, which reportedly maintains one of the dirtiest power grids in the U.S.

While Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft take the brunt of Greenpeace's criticism, Yahoo and Google receive high marks for their policies prioritizing renewable energy.

Facebook also receives high marks for its recent commitment to renewable energy, including its latest data center in Sweden that is 100% renewable powered.

Planning to campaign, we presume, on a platform of lingerie photos and Facebook status updates, Kim Kardashian has announced her intention to run for Mayor of Glendale, California.

The waste of nice boobs reality star made this plan known during an unaired piece of footage from Sunday's new episode of Khloe & Lamar, which Ryan Seacrest unveiled yesterday on his website.

In the following clip, Kim says the city of 190,000 residents will need to wait five years before she can take it over because she must establish residence there, but, with a strong Armenian community, she has little doubt she could make a difference there.

WOULD YOU VOTE KIM KARDASHIAN FOR MAYOR OF YOUR HOMETOWN?

During a press conference in Cartagena yesterday, standing alongside Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Barack Obama addressed the Secret Service scandal surrounding up to a dozen agents and five members of the U.S. military.

They are accused of soliciting prostitutes in that nation and have been relieved of their posts.

After praising the role of Secret Service employees in general - telling reporters these men and women perform "extraordinary service" on a daily basis - he decreed the reported actions of the men cited in this weekend's report:

"I expect that investigation to be thorough, and I expect it to be rigorous. If it turns out that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then of course I'll be angry... We are representing the people of the United States, and when we travel to another country, I expect us to observe the highest standards."

A dozen Secret Service agents have been removed from their posts in Colombia, U.S. officials confirm, following incidents of "misconduct" that sources say relate to at least one refusing to pay a prostitute for her services.

The agents were stationed in that country ahead of President Obama's arrival for the Summit of the Americas, which started today.

Obama and Agents

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan has not yet disclosed the nature of the allegations that resulted in replacing these agents with new ones, though insiders tell The Washington Post that at least one agent solicited a prostitute - the act is legal in certain Colombian areas - who then went to the police when she was not paid.

None of those relieved of duty was a member of the President's security detail.

Ronald Kessler, the author of "In the President's Service" and a former reporter for The Washington Post, told CBS News this represents "the biggest scandal in Secret Service history" and marks a "tremendous embarrassment to the U.S."
