Ted Nugent Is A Gun-Loving, Romney-Supporting, Obama-Bashing Lunatic

Ted Nugent doesn't only look crazy, he talks crazy.

NEW YORK (TRP) – Aging rocker Ted Nugent apparently loves guns and despises the current Obama administration.

Nugent, who was a top trending topic on Twitter for a good part of Tuesday, is making headlines days after his controversial appearance at the annual convention of the National Rifle Association in St. Louis.

The 63-year-old musician, known for his ultra-conservative views and strong ties with the N.R.A., addressed the crowd Saturday where he touted presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney as the one to vote for come this November.

During his apparent tirade, Nugent described the Obama administration as “vile, evil America-hating” and accused it of using the Constitution as “bathroom tissue.”

According to the New York Times, he went on to say:

“We got four Supreme Court justices who don’t believe in the Constitution. Does everybody know here that four of the Supreme Court justices not only determined you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms, four Supreme Court justices signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense. That sounds like a stoned hippie. That doesn’t sound like a Supreme Court anything. It sounds like a supremely intellectually vacuous punk.”

To no surprise, the NRA-card carrying audience members responded with cheers and applause.

“If you want more of those kinds of evil anti-American people in the Supreme Court, then don’t get involved and let Obama take office again. Because 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.”

The hate-filled rant is now causing trouble for Romney who has yet to denounce Nugent’s tongue-lashing which some officials deemed threatening to Obama. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the head of the Democratic National Committee released a statement Monday, capitalizing on the rocker’s diarrhea of the mouth.

“Mitt Romney must condemn Nugent’s violent and hateful rhetoric immediately, as it has no place in our political discourse or this campaign.”

A spokesperson for Romney or Nugent did not immediately release a statement on the controversy.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Secret Service said Tuesday, they are investigating Nugent’s remarks — whatever that means.

    I think Ted needs to wango-tango his way back to the 1950’s.
