If you’re not following Ted Nugent’s twitter feed, you’re missing out. The last forty six tweets have been “are words more offensive than _random made -up Obama scandal_”.

But this has to be my favorite:

Yeah, yeah, we shouldn’t pay attention to the freak show. Well, Ted may as well be on the DNC pay roll at this point.

And, yes “Joseph Goebbells Saul Alinsky propaganda ministry mongrels” will soon be a rotating tag.

    Ted Nugent takes his feelings of inadequacy out of animals on his own personal well-stocked “hunting” ground where the animals are kept fat and lazy to make it easier for him to unload a clip into them.

    He wouldn’t shoot at a person – he might miss and they might fight back!

    I get where you’re going, and I guess where we differ is the idea that statutory rape always == pedophilia. Maybe you’re right and I’ve got the unusual understanding of that word? When I hear the word “pedophile” I think of someone who’s sexually attracted to children.

    Way I see it, there’s miles of daylight between the guy who looks at a 17-year-old and says “Man, I wish she was 18” and the guy who looks at a 12-year-old and says “I want some of that.” They’re both wrong, but one is way wronger, and it seems unfair to call that first guy a pedophile when he’s really just kind of a creep.

    Nah, can’t afford that. A nice 2012 with notes of pear and, maybe, apricot? It was what is called a Chairman’s Selection in our state controlled wine and spirit stores. A (usually) very good wine at a discount and in limited quantity and for only a limited period, usually a month. This was a bottle that should retail at about $20-30 and I paid $11. We get great wines at great price by buying just those wines every month if we can. It just sucks that once they’re gone, they’re gone.

    @Laertes: I’d also note that my daughter had a classmate that easily passed for 18 when she was 11 – 5th grade. She was about 5′ 10″, could carry herself like an adult when she chose, and was very pretty – and then one of her friends would come up to her and they’d go scamper off like 11 year olds. She made all of the parents nervous because nobody was prepared to protect someone that age from that kind of attention.

    Not a defense, but not all 12 year olds are so easy to spot as 12 year olds. Of course when you’re 30, you should be LONG past running the risk of picking 18 year-olds out of the field. But the claim is a bit hard to believe. It’s pretty hard for a 12 year old to even get in that situation, want to get in that situation, etc.

    Oh, and somehow no deaths during Bush’s presidency can reflect badly on Bush in any way. Assuming Bush is anything but a figment of desperate, hate-filled liberal imaginations.

    Battleground Texas is registering a lot of voters, and it looks like the members of the national conservative grifter network are getting a little nervous:

    Conservative activist James O’Keefe has released another covert video of Battleground Texas volunteers. In this one, a voter registration coordinator collects phone numbers as part of the registration process, something that the office of Secretary of State Nandita Berry tells the Tribune’s Alana Rocha and Jay Root could be a “potential level of offense.”
    “Whether Battleground did anything wrong in the process comes down to how the law is interpreted,” wrote Rocha and Root. “Section 13.004 of the Texas Election Code says, in part, that county registration officials may not ‘transcribe, copy or otherwise record a telephone number furnished on a registration application.’”
    Opinion was split among authorities queried by the reporters. A Berry spokesman suggested that Battleground Texas’ volunteer deputy registrars would have the same liability that applies to county officials. That view was not shared by election law expert Buck Wood, who said the statutory language makes it clear that these volunteer registrars are not county officials.

    In the video of the Texas even I saw on CNN, Ted Nugent is babbling about ACORN.

    Someone should tell him we just call ACORN “Battleground Texas” now :)

    jl says:

    @Randy P: Mongrel is an age-old racist slur used to expand the group that is to be deemed inferior. Being a mixed race person was worse than being of a different race, based on some BS about adulteration and degeneration of pure blood lines. The mongrel slur was picked up by U.S. slave owners to justify all sorts of discrimination, and used it to justify the ‘one-drop’ (of supposedly inferior race blood) theory of being not-white, and so, perfectly OK to discriminate against all sorts of people.

    Then the Nazi’s used it to justify their treatment of Jews, and then extended it to justify their treatment of any group they decided should be killed or oppressed or excluded from genuine humanhood.

    So, when discussing race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, and more, ‘mongrel’ is a very dangerous word, and liable to alarm many types of people.

    Mongrel was a favorite slur to denigrate and justify discrimination and killing of Native Americans who were trying to assimilate to European ways, and had allied themselves with Europeans. Especially if they owned something or were on land that neighboring European communities wanted.

    Gee, too bad, ain’t it? These poor dupes played the game we told them too, but now we can spread nonsense about how they are even worse than Native American’s themselves. They are mongrels, half-breeds, really degenerate and dangerous people, neither one race nor another.

    Words like ‘mongrel’ and ‘half-breed’ are, or IMHO, should, raise alarm bells when some one uses them like Nugent did.

    If somebody wants to call themselves a mongrel or a mutt jokingly, that is their business. But otherwise it is considered a very loaded word, and I can see why.

    Blitzer and his guest on the CNN broadcast took it seriously, and it doesn’t look like they are going to put up with any whining about liberal PC about it. And I hope that is the case, because I think that they very definitely should not.

    When he took a microphone from a long-winded speaker, the man startled Mr. Christie by snatching it right back.
    And when he singled out a young woman as his inspiration for repairing the Hurricane Sandy-battered coastline, he failed to grasp that the girl’s mother — sitting just a few feet from Mr. Christie — was angry with him for not doing enough.

    Of the performing brothers, I can still remember Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Donny, and Jimmy (the youngest) but I’ve forgotten the sixth one. Or was that Marie?

    You forgot Jay.

    (Don’t ask.)

    @Jim, Foolish Literalist:

    I think you got it: Bong Romney, the Jack Mormon they don’t talk about, and Duffel Palin, conceived in the baggage claim of of Juneau Greyhound bus terminal.

    Not only does Greyhound not serve Alaska, there is no bus terminal in, or interstate highway through, Juneau.

    (Again, don’t ask.)

    Anyhow, is Duffel one of Sarah’s, or one of one of Sarah’s? And as for Bong, if he doesn’t exist, he ought to.

    It’s Joseph Goebbels.

    @SFAW:

    Actually, the Monkees had some musical chops, and rebelled against the straightjacket that Don Kirschner tried to put them in. So much so that the next time Kirschner produced a show with music, it was The Archies, an animated show with utterly disposable studio musicians doing the singing, giving him total control. Ingrate musicians, anyways.

    Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork were actual skilled musicians when they auditioned for the Monkees.

    Charles Manson auditioned for the Monkees too. Good thing he didn’t make the cut.

    @Villago Delenda Est:

    Yeah, I knew/know re: Tork and Nesmith. But they were still a marketing creation first and foremost. (Doesn’t mean I hated them, by the way – I didn’t.)

    But, yeah, the Archies were pretty vile.

    Air Supply and Starland F****ing Vocal Band faves of mine? [rends garments and shrieks in absolute horror]

    [Gathering myself back together here]

    No, the only inadvertent insult was in imagining that they could be my faves. But then, obviously a lot of people *did* buy their music, so it’s admittedly plausible that a stranger might actually [gulp] like them.

    Afternoon Delight has the dual evilness of being both an unbearably saccharine song and also an irresistible earbug. It was a cause of much agony on my part back in the mid-1970s, given its abundant airplay then and my status at times as a captive audience to a parent’s radio.

    My reference to cold was in your suggesting that Romney likes these two… um… former musical groups.

    Just reading that tweet, it looks like Mr. Nugent may have suffered some sort of head or brain injury, and should seek medical assistance.

    Does anyone have the number of a good proctologist in their contact list?

  234. 234
    Bruce K says:

    Actually, logorrhea (the technical term for verbal diarrhea) and aphasia can both be signs of mental illness or brain damage, which indicate that perhaps Mr. Nugent should seek medical attention.

    An Obamacare-compliant health insurance policy should cover a lower-abdominal MRI scan, right?

    Amir, my friend, if you weren’t one o’ them heathen-types, I’d tell you to do 10 Ave Marias and 10 Paternosters.

    But, given the tenor of some of your comments, I guess I’m a little surprised amazed that it wasn’t intentional. (I mean that in the nicest possible way. Really!)
