Ted Nugent gives considered opinions on '08 race
Since this IS Ted Nugent, I suppose a "strong language" caveat would be superfluous...
(UPDATE, Sat. morning: Jim W.. had a comment that was blocked by the spam filter for some reason, so I added it in extended comments below).
Jim W. posts:
We aren't "reasoning with the anti-gun people" we are attempting to
reach the millions upon millions of fence sitters that don't care about
the issue until they become concerned about crime, etc. Dedicated
anti-gunners are a tiny percent of the population. The rest just sort
of swing in the breeze. When they time comes for them to make a
decision on a law or a candidate, they may ask themselves "which side
is more like me?" This is how people make decisions. "Which herd do I
belong to?" Middle class professionals (ie, Sandy Froman, Stephen
Halbrook, Dave Hardy, etc, etc) are a good image for people to have
when they think of gun ownership. We need people that behave like
adults, work for a living and express reasonable and non-crazy
viewpoints. That natural order of things is normalcy on our side and
pants-shitting hysterics on their side. It is out advantage to lose.
Captain Caveman (ie, the nuge) is NOT a good image for people to have
when they think of gun ownership. Most people over the age of 20 find
him completely repellent and childish, including people like me that
agree with his inappropriately expressed views. We do not need anyone
thinking of Ted Nugent when they pull a voting lever. That would be
very bad for the movement. Almost no one who thinks he is cool votes.
