That's a death threat? Sounded like a suicide pact.

Jack is Back!

The comments were more incinderary tham Nugent's quote.

I don't laff myself.

More like a warning of repression ahead rather than a threat to the President.


go ahead, let the Secret Service interview Ted ... they'll quit and work for him when he's finished ...


That's about as much of a death threat as Sarah's surveyor's symbols on the U.S. map.

Jack is Back!

Special Report leads with Taxmageddon I linked to on other thread.


"Ted Nugent ... is prepping to off Obama should he win re-election."


He should have just put a bounty on his head; guaranteed not to get investigated that way...

East Bay Jay

Did Nugent tweet where the President lives?


The way I heard it, Think Regress, TM really,
(except to laugh at LEgum)is Obama would go after all gun rights activists. Sort of like
Heston's 'you will my gun, from my cold dead

Frau Steingehirn

kim, is it true that the Andreas Fault has been renamed the Bush's Fault?
(ducking marshmallow missles)

Thomas Collins

I like that one, Frau. Do you have any good Tom Collins jokes? :-))


Take this in tandem with two other pieces of information. Rasmussen has shown for quite some time that Republican enthusiasm is higher that the Democrats, plus that poll of R +10 in the congressional generic, then just shake and bake:

Just when the Blue Dogs thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did.

Two years after the 2010 midterm elections decimated their ranks, the coalition of conservative Democrats is poised to get pummeled again in November — moving the Blue Dogs dangerously close to extinction.

Of the 24 remaining Blue Dogs, five are not seeking reelection. More than a half-dozen others are facing treacherous contests in which their reelection hopes are in jeopardy.

It’s a rough time to occupy the right wing of the Democratic Party.

“It’s a tough environment out there,” said former Alabama Rep. Bud Cramer, a longtime member of the House Blue Dog Coalition. “Their numbers are down. Redistricting has not been kind to them.”

Cramer nailed it: Redistricting is at the root of the Blue Dog problem. The once-in-a-decade line-drawing has forced some of them to compete for seats that have become even less friendly to Democrats — and those seats weren’t very friendly to begin with. Utah Rep. Jim Matheson, Georgia Rep. John Barrow and North Carolina Rep. Mike McIntyre are among those who have been thrust into deeply Republican territory after being targeted in GOP-led redistricting efforts in their home states.

Can you say wipeout? I knew you could.

In my blue hell, the Dems redistrict out the moderates in favor of the progs. Sort of like a distillate. When Bobby Rush's district is a thin line all the way to Springfield, I'll know the end is nigh.


Ok-I have said before that education is a huge Corporatist adventure these days. But I didn't know that Exxon did a Common Core commercial. Even worse they paid Masters coverage rates to air it on broadcast.

"Please if we say nice things about your ed agenda publicly, can we drill then. No? How about keeping the refinery open without crippling new technology investments? No. Well, what if we come up with a nice commercial and air it at the Masters so politicians and bureaucrats can push this federal agenda with less scrutiny because it's 'necessary for our competitiveness in this difficult economy.' So that's a winner? And then you will help us avoid the industry death sentence? At least for a few more quarters?"

Industrial policy. Because bo says other countries do it, why shouldn't we?"

Captain Hate

Somebody needs to give the Secret Service drug tests if they viewed Ted's comments as a threat to Il Douche. Are you sure they didn't take some of his "Cat Scratch Fever" lyrics as a threat to the JEF?


OTOH, the fact there have 14 plots in the NY
area, doesn't seem to matter to the AP.



The Yahoo news guy must have learned his editing techniques from the Today show:

"I'll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," Nugent said. "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"

Not even an ellipsis, though Nugent spoke probably a couple dozen sentences between the two quoted, where he alluded to the American Revolution.


Mel you guys gave us this miserable incompetent so its a fitting penance. Jan Schachowsky ( however it is spelled ) is a Socialist and Rush was a Black Panther. Plus who is the last Governor who did not go to jail? Sheesh.

Danube of Thought

Screw the Blue Dogs. Most overrated phenomenon since Kahoutek.

Kinda like Anthony Kennedy: say all the right things, vote the wrong way.


The Democrats just got their freak on and forgot what they had learned the hard way from McGovern. Lie about what you believe. That is how a lot of blue dogs got elected. Obamacare made it clear that moderate was not an accurate description. Good riddance

The Alar scare of politics?


Just a nudge you understand, not an order;


Jack is Back!


I was sick watching those endless Exxon parodies of education devastation. They have fallen into the endless abyss of political correction for the benefit of the un-educated and un-informed. Pathetic.


Wow. If you have not seen the author of Fast and Furious, one Katie Pavlich, you need to correct your mistake. Very easy on the eyes.


If Bwarney Fwank admits Obamacare is a mistake, how many idiots are left that think its a big fing deal ( besides Biden I mean ).


You can only go so far, without an illustration, Gmax

Captain Hate

GMax, that statement is worthless without a link.


There's a good joke about whitetails with big racks in there somewhere.


Katie Pavlich;

Was unable to find a shot of the other end.


Preston agrees with me, on this point, as does the first comment;


Captain Hate

I need Mr Ballard to translate what TM is *really* saying when he's linking Stink Progress with no obvious hint of irony, other than the "party girls" mention.


Just remember the Taliban is not our enemy;




Melinda Romanoff

"I" gave you them?

I know you don't like me, but sheesh.

Well done, TK


I bow before TK's madskillz.


Yteu, Melinda, that district did not buy Obama's hokum, it bought Rush's, but the only time he had to order Kools in bulk was 2000.


The thing is, Captain, Gunther might have genuine talent, but this is not his first instance of 'category error' on his part.

Sometimes totally incomprehensible theory
just makes no sense, I picked up this novel
by an Argentine writer, 'La Sombra de Heidegger' In the Shadow of Heidegger that makes that point.


I know it's NBC and the Journal, but I start twitching anyways



I may be losing the natural born argument, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career.

Captain Hate

I'm not even sure how extensive his talent was, narc. I found "The Tin Drum" alternately interesting and annoying; that it was based at least in part on a lie didn't enhance it.


I haven't read it, but that admission does have a way of making his protestation, along with his defense of the Gusthoff problematic


Dave (in MA)

The Secret Service Road Trip Anthem


"a great day for voter fraud"

Does that mean the voter fraudsters can't be stopped? I can't imagine the Obama crowd winning without voter fraud. It will occur in every part of this great land in the primaries, in the conventions, and in the Nov elections, unless we stop it, IMO.

Captain Hate

Does that mean the voter fraudsters can't be stopped?

No; the November landslide may well be immune from fraud.


You see why I'm cynical, a little farther South, and I'm sure unlike with West they pulled out the stops, to keep his district



Get the fucking popcorn ready people.

Fresh off their human trafficking caper ripping off hookers for $47 ... the secret service is going to step on their cocks again?

Gonna be a good show.

Captain Hate

Damn narc; was Chito Crist contagious? Or is Florida Duke and Duke's home base?


--A one-hit wonder--

Getting to be a full time job correcting you Ben.


Sadly yes, and this is the opposite of how I expected Corey to act, he's also doing the 'My Friends' deal flacking the Dream act


Seven singles charted in the Top 100. Cat scratch was the highest but it only made it to 30.


Speaking of Crazy but talented, that whole Gibson deal with Esterhaz, I guess he's gone the whole Ezra Pound,

Captain Hate

Speaking of Crazy but talented, that whole Gibson deal with Esterhaz, I guess he's gone the whole Ezra Pound,

He's always been a readable writer but crazy as a shithouse rat and an untrustworthy liar.


A little late here, but maybe the "one-hit" reference was to this:


Some pretty impressive guitar from the Nuge.


regardless of politics, to call a rock artist who had the kind of massive FM airplay Nugent did in the 70s a "one-hit wonder" is moronic. by those standards, Bob Dylan was a one-hit wonder.

Captain Hate

On the Today show, Matt Lauer has sand in his mangina, Ted Koppel is off his Geritol and Trandrea has been scared frigid at the lack of CIVILITY of the Nuge's comments at some obscure setting. I guess they don't get HBO.

Luv Ted

Ted responds:

“I spoke at the NRA and I will stand by my speech. It was 100 percent positive,” Nugent told the Dana Loesch radio show today. “It’s about we the people taking back our American dream from the corrupt monsters in the federal government under this administration and the communist czars he’s appointed.”

“I have never in my life threatened anyone’s life. I’m incapable of threatening anyone’s life. Because I’m about positive change, my entire speech, all my articles,” he later added.

Nugent did not temper his rhetoric for Democratic National Committee chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz or House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whom he called “varmints.”

“Varmints are sometimes clever, but they are really easy to outmaneuver,”

During the Dana Loesch interview, Nugent also went after Wasserman Shultz, calling her a "brain-dead, soulless idiot."

"I am on the right track and she just encourages me to stand stronger," he said.

“The job of we the people is to spotlight cockroaches, and come November we’re going to stomp them at the voting booth,” he said.

Cecil Turner

He said "stomp"! Oooooh.

Well, I finally watched the clip, and the claims of supposed threats are underwhelming. By far the closest was the Braveheart riff: "we need to ride into that battlefield, and chop their heads off in November." And that's so obviously a political metaphor that nobody could take it seriously as an actual threat.

Bottom line: there's no "there" there (except the usual libs with vapors, which isn't news).


He should have said we're going to punch them in the nose and bash their heads on the concrete, since we know that's not life-threatening.


Josh Hamilton hits another tape measure blast and the Rangers squeak past the Red Sox 18-3.


Who could possibly disagree with this part of the MotorCity Madman's awesome rant:

"brain-dead, soulless idiot." = Debbie Does America.


Ted Nugent (the Nuge) used to have a Radio Program here in the Detroit Area that was pretty good. He is more for Hunting Rights than he is for Gun Rights. IMO, he hurt his "brand" when he was caught violating Game Regulations in California (LUN).

Devil's Advocate

Above the canyon walls IN A NEW MAGIC LAND the indian and the buffalo existed hand in hand.

"He should have said we're going to punch them in the nose and bash their heads on the concrete, since we know that's not life-threatening."

Awesome line !

And if they complain, WE get to call THEM racists -
a "win-win" situation if ever I saw one.



on abc news, dan abrams thought it went better for the state and said that is zimm was the aggressor that escaating to the use of deadly force would be illegal.

is he right?
