Ted Nugent is Going to The State of the Union
Is having been investigated by the Secret Service for publicly threatening to kill the President not enough to keep you out of the State of the Union? I guess we’ll find out tomorrow — because according to Talking Points Memo, “Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), who threatened President Obama with impeachment over his plan to reduce gun violence, has offered a ticket to the State of the Union to Ted Nugent.”
Wait… why would anyone even want Ted Nugent there? Oh, right:
“Nugent will be available to speak to the media before and after the Address,” Stockman’s office noted in the Monday statement.
Well, if the idea was to get some media attention, it sure did work! If the idea was to get some positive media attention, though, uh, yeah not so much. I mean, it’s not like people are gonna hear Teddy’s “counter-argument” and then go out and lynch President Obama.
That being said, I sincerely hope Teddy wears one of his confederate flag shirts for the occasion. That would lend him real credibility, right?
