Ted Nugent vowed that he would be in dead or jail by now if President Obama was re-elected. Instead, he will be campaigning with the likely Republican nominee to replace Rick Perry as governor of Texas, Greg Abbott.

The musician’s history of dodging the draft and allegedly having sexual relations with an underaged Courtney Love do not seem to bother the Republicans — including former Republican nominee for president Mitt Romney — who continually seek out his support. Neither does his constant misogynistic and racially provocative rhetoric.

In fact, it inspires them to “work close” with “the Nuge,” as he explained last year:

I’m contacted all the time, I work close with Ted Cruz who is a great patriot, a great statesman. I worked close with Scott Walker’s team in Wisconsin when he took it away from the hippies and got rid of the [unintelligible] and got some freedom back in Wisconsin. I’ve worked with Governor Engler in the past. I’ve worked with different sheriffs and different attorney generals. I work closely with Greg Abbott and Governor Perry in Texas.

All of this leads me to wonder, what could Ted Nugent possibly say that would lead to Republicans not embracing him publicly… besides something decent about President Obama?

    “What could Ted Nugent possibly say that would lead to Republicans not embracing him publicly? ”

    Nothing I know of….the most hideous words and ideas of past, present and future would not faze the GOP who supports him.

  • plc97477

    The republicans will not turn away from anyone who has money.

    • old_blu

      Oh and the Nuge is a prefect yes man for the Republican party, they sure don’t want anyone standing with them that can’t back them up with their lies. Helps stroke their egos…………. (yeah that’s it egos)

  • disqus_ivSI3ByGmh

    If Nugent were a Democrat (Daniel Bostdorf, stop choking with laughter!) and Nixon was President, you could bet there would be FBI and IRS files on him thick enough to hide him from view. He would be an especial favorite target of old J. Edgar!
    Sadly, he is just the type of Republican held up by those shining examples of decorum, Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann, as the Ideal American!

    Quite frankly, I hope Nugent continues to campaign for the RepubliCON/Tea Clowns. Every time this piece of human garbage opens his mouth there’s a stampede to become card-carrying Democrats. So, keep talking, you draft-dodging pedophile.

    • daniel bostdorf

      Yeah–let him spew his filth….thanks for the undrage sex specticle…

      From an article about Nugent:

      “The term “pedophile” is not technically correct for what Ted Nugent was
      doing, but it doesn’t make it any less disgusting that the man was out
      there talking the parents of teenage girls into allowing him to have sex
      with their underage daughters.”

    What I don’t get is what does the Nuge say that Makes the GOP WANT him to campaign with them? He’s certainly NOT going to get them the youth vote and they’ve already got the NRA vote all tied up along with the KKK and racist vote.

  • FT66

    You go to war with the weapon you have. Nugent is regarded by republicans as their weapon though when used can’t kill anything. What else should they use? They have nothing folks!

    • plc97477

      It’s either him or the guy that talks to chairs.

    Since the GOP is loaded with rightwing nutcases I can’t see why they would ever have a problem with Nugent since he fits right into their fold of mental defectives. I love having him around because he adds more and more voters to the democratic side as do those that are like him that have infected a once great party.

    • daniel bostdorf

      It is entertaining and nauseating at same time 🙂

  • howa4x

    Ted Nugent is a burnt out druggie who has killed more brain cells than most of us. The mere fact that anyone should actually take him seriously astounds me. He is the perfect republican though. He avoided the draft like Cheney and Bush 2, cares little about the environment, is homophobic, racist, and pro gun to the point of psychosis. He probably draws more of the swastika/confederate flag waving crowd to his concerts than any other performer. All this coupled with his lack of understanding of the issues makes him the perfect entertainer to be the face of the republican party

      • plc97477

        Can’t say it was the whole reason but I voted at least a little bit for Obama cus I wanted to see him dead or in jail.

        • daniel bostdorf

          LOL-thats a good one 🙂

        • JSquercia

          and yet he’s NOT

      • Allan Richardson

        Just like a politician not to keep his promises!

  • Jambi

    Right-Wing (washed-up) Rock ‘n’ Rollers might attract the new 21st Century “young Republican” vote…yeah, sure…like there are hordes of Alex Keatons who can’t wait to campaign for the next Saint Reagan!

  • johninPCFL

    He craps his pants and drools on himself for a week to avoid the army, but has no problems at all sending OTHER PEOPLE’S KIDS TO WAR (for any trumped-up crazy reason.) Hmm, come to think of it, pretty much sums up the GOP – GWB (deferment), Cheney (deferment), Rumsfeld (deferment), Nugent (4F), etc.

        The real Ted Nugent….

        • daniel bostdorf

          A true patriot with a gun…

          • daniel bostdorf

            “I am available to endorse your candidacy for office.”

          • daniel bostdorf

            “HI–my name is Ted….what’s yours?”

  • sealbeams

    I’m starting to understand. He says he has worked closely with all these GUYS. How closely? Is Teddy starting to come out of the closet? Atta boy.

  • DurdyDawg

    Well, nobody wants this pervert but the pubs.. I guess money does talk in Gopsville.

  • DurdyDawg

    Hey! I thought this guy would be either dead or locked up by now.. Whatta let-down.

  • kingartie1

    Nugent found and is exploiting the one means to revive and keep alive his comatose career. If he had not aligned himself with the Republican’t neo-fascist wing he would have far fewer patrons at his concerts, or no concerts at all. This washed-up, mean-spirited, ignorant, gun crazy demagogue wouldn’t get two seconds worth of national attention and free publicity if he hadn’t cultivated a mutual masturbation society with the wing nuts. He and they are all intellectually and morally bankrupt. It is hopeless to expect a cure for their raging cases of back scratch fever. All other things being equal, oh that were ALL OF THEM dead or in jail, imagine how much better off we’d be without the noise and foul stench of their negligence and ignorance.

  • ChristoD

    Nugent, why are you not in jail or dead yet ? We’re waiting ! You are 1000% PHONY and a blowhard on the scale of Lumbaugh. The combination of you two blowhards hot air and vitriolic nonsense would knock down the Empire State building. Oh and you are a complete ass—- with your gun toting BS. And most of all you are a criminal who should be behind bars. P.S. Your music sucks too.

  • Mortalc01l

    In order for Republicans to disavow this draft-dodging, pants-crapping, cowardly kiddie raper, Nugent would have to admit that Climate Change is real and that God is fiction.. BOOM!!!!! instant excommunication from the Republican Party.

  • daniel bostdorf

    Speaking of blowhards….Al Sharpton tonight must have read National Memo because he has a report mimicking Jason’s article premise.

  • Mark Schmidt

    Ted is a draft dodger and coward, has been uttering threats and slurs and racist attacks on the US president for years with NO comeback. He is beloved by the extremist right because he is just like them… a brain damaged loudmouth with a lot of anger. I can’t imagine anything he could do to lose that part of the GOP, which actually is now most of the GOP…which is why they are dying out.
