Faded 80’s rock star Ted Nugent addressed the NRA convention today. He sits on its board of directors so I guess he’s entitled to a speech.
And this former Rick Perry supporter, who has now endorsed the presumed nominee, Mitt Romney, could have delivered a rock solid speech for his new candidate of choice. Instead he chose words that make people look twice at what goals this particular person has.
Right in the middle of his speech, Nugent uttered the inflammatory words that “…if Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
Gee. Dare we hope?
But seriously what does he mean by these words? Does he mean that Obama, the Dear Leader, once re-elected, will consolidate his nefarious power by unleashing his minions to put down the wild-eyed , spitting, sputtering uber conservatives that seem to be taking over the Republican Party?
And what does he intend to do to prevent President Obama from having Nugent “disappeared?”
These are good questions, and I guess the Secret Service is interested in getting to the bottom of Nugent’s intentions. Said a Secret Service spokesman today “We are aware of the situation, and we're conducting an appropriate follow-up.”
But, again seriously, I really don’t think there is much to this. I mean really consider the fact that Ted Nugent was Rick Perry’s main celebrity booster (OK, Chuck Norris was, too). Anyone willing to publicly promote Rick Perry for the top job in the country has serious mental processing problems.
And maybe had one too many joints, and two too many quarts of Jack Daniels.
