You don’t earn the nickname “Motor City Madman” by biting your tongue, but some people say Ted Nugent’s latest rant, which occurred over the weekend at the NRA Annual Meetings, may have gone too far. It is certainly a little shocking, even for The Nuge, particularly these gems:
“Our government is wiping its a– with the Constitution.”
“We’ve got four Supreme Court justices who don’t believe in the Constitution. Does everybody here know 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.”
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
(What do you think? Did Ted go too far? Take the poll!)
