Because a pants besh*tted chickenhawk with a history of banging underage girls is going to bring dignity to the office?

I guess the party could use someone to make their real choice look sane by comparison, and he certainly could use the push to his back catalog sales, but yeah, this is about as real a candidacy as Pam Anderson's fun bags...

President? Oh what?

*AHEM*

President? Of what?

If I were going to vote for a rock star, I think I'd rather have Alice Cooper running.
 
2013-11-05 12:28:13 AM  
Or better still, the Residents in a sort of group candidacy.

I think that one of the greatest ideas in modern history is for Ted Nugent to run for political office. It would be even better if he was to run for PotUS. It would be a comedy of errors that would reach epic proportions. I know that he would be shot down early on in any primary, but until that happened he would probably provide two weeks of absolute hilarity for every one week he was on the campaign trail. Hell, even Perry and Bachman only provided a return of 40%-45%.
 
2013-11-05 12:42:59 AM  
Please... proceed
 
2013-11-05 12:43:09 AM  
You're supposed to be either dead or in jail just as you swore you would be if Bam got re-elected, you cowardly pants shiatting liar.

Man up, Nuge.

How could we trust such a flip-flopper, anyway?
 
2013-11-05 12:50:13 AM  
Oh look, they found someone to make Palin look like a credible candidate.
 
2013-11-05 02:19:12 AM  
Didn't his television career end with a chainsaw to the knee? I could imagine how well his political career would do.

"I have threatened to run for public office, because..."

Even he knows that him holding an office is a threat.

Participating in a war of aggression does not serve your country.

avoiding the draft because you don't want to "play army" doesn't make you an activist.

He wants to be elected.
 
2013-11-05 06:43:46 AM  
So he's planning to run as an independent?  Because if he's talking about running as a Republican he wouldn't last 5 minutes in a primary.

If he's a top prime cut of meat, he's my choice.
 
2013-11-05 06:43:52 AM  
If Nugent was elected president, he'd either be dead or in jail a year later.
 
2013-11-05 06:45:39 AM  
Wasn't this shiat heel supposed to be "Dead or in jail" at this point?

What a shock... Something else Teddy shot his mouth off about and then acted like a chicken shiat.

Well, he is a Yankee Doodle Dandy in a gold Rolls Royce

Even Nugent isn't crazy enough to embarrass himself with a presidential run.

If the teatards ever break away from the rest of the GOP they might run him for some lesser office but he wouldn't win.
 
2013-11-05 06:50:40 AM  
President of that 45 minute block after Styx leaves the stage, but before Foreigner is ready to go on.

Stick to the has-been tours, Teddy.
 
2013-11-05 06:51:51 AM  
He could be Secretary of Potato in the Cruz administration.

Can you imagine that debate? Alice would have Ted shiatting himself again so he could get off the stage.
 
2013-11-05 06:53:08 AM  
POTUS has to wear clean slacks, Ted.

Sorry.
 
2013-11-05 06:54:22 AM  
He probably won't even be the craziest person running. *Sigh*

Alice is smarter than that. On his radio show, he's spoken about his own political beliefs, but adds that anyone who takes their political cues from an old rock star, even himself, is an idiot.

That's why his career keeps going without being propped up by pundits. People can still respectfully disagree with Alice.

and Alice can be a born again christian and still manage to be friends with gay 80 year old atheists.

And in the biggest irony of them all, due to contractual obligations, he'll find out he's not allowed to play his own music at campaign stops unless he sells tickets.
 
2013-11-05 07:06:11 AM  
You're supposed to be dead or in jail right now
 
2013-11-05 07:07:05 AM  
Used to see Ted driving around in his zebra striped Bronco all the time here at the Ohio/Michigan line. Even back then in the early '80s we thought he was a douche.
 
2013-11-05 07:09:03 AM  
Cue "Idiocracy" pics.
 
2013-11-05 07:12:01 AM  
A clown, named after a sweet treat wants to run for office, if he isn't dead or in jail. WTF.

Eh, he'd be the frontrunner for about a week, going by the last race.  'Wait, he does what to little girls?'

Ted is an amusing fellow, but I don't think he represents the direction the GOP wants to be moving in the future.
 
2013-11-05 07:24:38 AM  
Does anybody know who's the liberal version supposed to be of ted nugent? You know the person they point to so they can go BSABSVR?

Any takers?
 
2013-11-05 07:25:48 AM  
there is no need for an entertainer to be president.
 
2013-11-05 07:26:45 AM  
Much like how one should react when a person says "My favorite comedian? Gallagher, of course!" or "I really didn't like Scooby-Doo until they added that delightful Scrappy-Doo to the show." or "You just can't GET a better steak than Golden Corral!" someone saying "I think Ted Nugent should be president!" is an excellent way to save time by instantly knowing one can simply dismiss the person and walk away with a clean conscience.

I came in here to say something along these lines.  It would be awesome to see him on stage in a GOP primary debate getting shot down based on his past by his fellow Republican candidates.  He would not be able to deflect them by using the "liberal media" card and would probably have a major meltdown on live TV.  It would certainly throw a lot of fuel on the fire regarding the GOP "civil war", dividing the establishment from the Tea Party even more.

Oh I so hope it happens. Liberals should start a covert "grass roots" movement to convince him to run.  It would be beautiful.

VP pick? Jackson? Munoz? Baldwin?

Nugent (T) on the ballot would look good!
And split the shiat out of the vote on the (R) side.

To be fair, I don't think Ted has actually entertained anyone since Damn Yankees broke up.
 
2013-11-05 07:31:33 AM  
And meatloaf as his running mate.

The GOP put forth Dan Quail, W. Bush and Sarah Palin.  I think they like the idea of an easily manipulated dim wit in the oval office.
