Readers may recall the grand Faux Nooz Flap of July, wherein Sean Hannity featured my Democratic Daily July 5 post on Nugent’s disgusting Wall Street Journal attack on the “Summer of Love” and an entire generation on July 4 as a) cover for Ann Coulter’s remark that terrorists should assassinate John Edwards, and b) THEN, in the same week, that his “friend” Ted Nugent and his family lived in fear of my “assassinating” him/them. (I know. It was an astonishing distortion of what I had written, but we pass over that mess in favor of the newest one.)
Well, Nugent has gone off the deep end again, and Hannity, on Friday’s Faux Nooz “Hannity & Colmes” attempted to defend Nugent’s latest misbehavior. Among the hypocrisies cited, Alan Colmes brought up Nugent’s tearful puling, which you can see here. Bravo, Alan Colmes! (And thanks.)
[* Naturally, completely nailed, Hannity bloviates, puffs, gyrates, contorts and pretends that facts ain’t facts and Fox remains faux. It is the unintentional comedy gem of the silly season, and should be saved for future reference. It will be the ‘gift that keeps on giving.’]
Additionally, Newshounds notes: “FOX & Friends whitewashed Nugent’s comments the next day.”
Richard Roeper, in today’s Chicago Sun-Times takes Nugent to task for his vile comments about Senators Obama, Clinton, Feinstein, Boxer and even Gov. Schwarzenegger in an article entitled:
Facing a draft, Nugent bravely wet his pants
Rocker is all talk as he calls Obama, Hillary vile names
Newshounds has a similar take on Nugent’s draft-dodging HERE.
Still, if you’re looking for the “moral character” of Mr. Nugent, here are some random YouTube videos that you might want for future reference:
- Ted Nugent-Kiss My Glock (Watch the shooting section AFTER the concert footage, as well).
- Nugent shoots keyboard in “funny”/sick sequence. (Warning, pretty disgusting)
- Wearing “chief” headdress, shoots flaming arrow into guitar (Nugent shows his deep ‘respect’ for Native Americans by doubly insulting them).
Since Mr. Nugent has never responded to my charge that he is either ghost-written, or extensively rewritten, I will respond to him in MUSICAL terms, which — however handicapped he is by being a non-musical hack — is at least on turf that no one can accuse him of occupying falsely. He is invited to respond via crappy song, or else by “writing.”

But, in case you were holding your breath, I get the distinct impression — notwithstanding all the macho bluster, the hate speech, the guns, the “I get high on gunpowder” B.S. — that Nugent is fundamentally a coward, and we will hear no more from him on this topic.
