Ted Nugent's latest publicity stunt

He'll be at the State of the Union on Tuesday

The NugeWhatever happened to “shut up and sing?”


The New York Times reports that a special guest will be in the audience during Tuesday’s presidential State of the Union address – one draft-dodging gun-toting former rock star, Ted Nugent.


He tells the Times that not only will he be attending but he’ll voluntarily leave his guns at home: “I will be going in sans the hardware store on my belt. I live a well-armed life, and I’ve got to demilitarize before I go.” Given that the Secret Service had to pay him a visit over incendiary remarks he made last year did he think he or anyone would be given a choice?


Better yet, he’ll give a press conference afterward to tell us what he thinks, just in case this NSFW video didn’t make it explicitly clear.

Wait -- it gets more cynical than that. Nugent's announcement that he'll be attending comes on the same day of the announcement of his latest tour -- being on the bottom of the bill as the opening act for Styx and REO Speedwagon in April. Sensitive and compassionate -- that's our Ted.

You pussy liberals are out of your minds.I guess because Ted isn't a socialist whiny crybaby like all of you and your moronic president then you say he's crazy.I seem to remember none of you were saying the election's over when Bush got elected twice.Selective memory much?

To MSN...your question of quote, "Whatever happened to shut up and sing" fell right alongside "shutup and act" question category....you are showing your biased nature because I don't think I have ever read one of your articles asking that question when Eva Longoria, Alex Baldwin, Sean Penn etc are stomping around on stage campaigning for their Dem candidates...

If you are a person who does'nt believe in the 2nd amendent and EVERYTHING it , you my friend should move elsewhere.You should not try to change anything written in the constitution or bill of rights.They were written for a reason,so live with it or leave.

I thought the Republican Party is in the process of doing damage control... now a Texas Representative invites this idiot to the State of the Union Address?? Ted Nugent, who preaches conservative views and makes his money singing the opposite is certainly going to help that cause! He is obnoxious and the poster boy for white-trash stupidity - it's so bad that the NRA shouldn't even allow him membership. I suppose this is another bit of good news for the Democrats. Guess I am not that upset after all.

  My God Ted, give it up!  You are such a washed-up old piece.  Take your senile butt back home, to the back roads of Michigan and leave Obama alone.  This country voted, now deal with it.  You don't speak for the majority.  P.S. pay your fair share of taxes, chump!
