Ted Nugent is in the news this week for, well, saying some seriously nutty stuff.
We at THG fully believe in the First Amendment, and aren’t about to jail the guy for his views, but even the rightest-winger must admit that his recent rant against Barack Obama and the administration was out there, at least in terms of his phrasing.
And his defense of it – “I’m a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally” – was sort of hilarious.
As you might expect, this wasn’t the first time Nugent has gone off on a political issue. The guy isn’t shy, we can give him that.
With that in mind, we present a few of the crazier Ted Nugent quotes from the past few years:
[On Sarah Palin]: She’s coming from the street, she’s coming from the we-the-people rank-and-file. She makes sense when she talks, she says all the right things, she’s sincere, she’s knowledgeable, she’s articulate, she’s damn good-looking, plus she kills moose. How can you go wrong? | permalink
