In a fundraising email blast sent a short while ago–noted for the record:
Greetings, real Americans,
Yes – this is that Ted Nugent, and you're probably wondering why the hell I would be emailing you.
Well, I'm not just a rock star and bowhunting addict. I'm a gungho American first and a dedicated patriot fighting for liberty – just like you. And like you, I'm terrified by where Barack Obama and his radical America hating leftist goons are leading this great country. Aren't you?
We all better wake up and fight back together before it's too late!
Thankfully there are some heroes we can count on to lead the fight – heroes for liberty like Tom Tancredo.
But the clowns in some "we the sheeple" Governor's Mansions and in the White House are making America look idiotic. They've hijacked our healthcare system so we have to pay higher prices for lesser care. They are forcing those of us who work hard to pay even more money into a broken system so they can turn around and give unearned handouts to scammers who prefer sitting on their couch to looking for a job…
Tom is a former U.S. Congressman who made waves in Washington by vehemently opposing President Bush's wasteful spending spree, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and insane infringements to our sacred Second Amendment rights. Now he's running to be the next Governor of Colorado – a state at the forefront of the gun control debate – and I'm doing everything I can to make sure he wins.
Will you please help me save America? [Pols emphasis]
It's Tom Tancredo who's going to "save America," not Ted Nugent. But maybe we're just getting technical.
Another one of those e-maisl from Nathan Poe, perhaps??? — a gunuine, honest-to-goodness "real American" media-whore mutual admiration society . . . totally beyond the scope of parody in it's absurdity.
Is that a snakeskin .22? Who the fuck thinks that is manly?
Only a true red-blooded American like teddy would shit his pants to avoid the draft, and then have the total lack of integrity to top it off by hiding behind the flag for decades.
Who knew Nugent hates all those red-staters on food stamps? Many of whom look and talk just like him?
Ted Nugent lives on residual royalties that came from playing guitar. He doesn't know shit about work… or workers whose opportunities are so scarce they have to have public assistance to eat AND pay rent. I know lots of 'em.
Ted Nugent lives on residual royalties
For really bad songs.
C'mon, Ralphie! Wang Dang Sweet Poontang?
Is that a typo? Bush and the Republicans let the Assault Weapons Ban lapse.
I bet he says that every time he has to talk about how he was a draft dodger during Vietnam. Maybe not so much…
Speaking last year before the election, The Nuge made this prediction:
What a clown.
EXCUSE ME, but I believe this was only addressed to REAL AMERICANS.
So can it, alright?
sorry…what were we thinking?
Hopefully something will happen and Tommy Tank will be heading to a second place finish in the Primary, forcing him to abandon the Grand Old Party (again) and take the Nugent-loving nutcases and loyal xenophobes off the cliff once more. The ACP might take him back, I mean–why not? And there has got to be some other sort of fringe party desperate enough to take on Tom.
Maybe Ted will change the lyrics to his song "Great White Buffalo" to "Great White Tancredo" for future fundraisers.
Is it just me or is Tancredo getting desperate? Sure Ted Nugent is entertaining, but am I really going to pick my candidate based on what he says? Tancredo loses in every poll matchup against Hickenlooper, not to mention he's already lost to him once.
I think you're making the mistake of thinking of Tanc as someone who really wants to be Governor. That would involve actual work. He's no more interested in actual work than Palin is. He just wants to hang on to his second tier wacko rightie celebrity status for as long as he can so this is perfect for him.
If you're right BlueCat, I wish he'd just get out of the way and give our actual electable candidates some more face time. I mean the man loses a poll matchup against Hick by 15+ points and has the nerve to cast himself as the GOP winner??? Some people can fool themselves into thinking their *$%@ don't stink.
I think we need someone who can pull independent votes away from Hick. Are any independents going to vote Tancredo because of Cat Scratch Fever? Of course not.
It's about the money. If you are always on the campaign trail…well, everything is an expense. Ask Steve KIng.
Steve King, that is.
Tanc doesn't care. Hick will be re-elected. The rest is all side show.
Wow…just wow. Don't we have any republicans that can beat Hick without having to appeal to the fringe? What we need are independents to win. I don't see any of them voting republican because of Cat Scratch Fever. I'm sorry Tom, but it looks like the wheels just came off your campaign.
Tanc's got wheels on his campaign – it's just that they're square, because round wheels are often made by fur'ners.
