Sarah Palin Praises Ted Nugent, Endorses Wendy Davis’ Opponent For Governor of Texas

nugent-palinAn article that combines Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent – my head might explode before I finish this.  All it needs is a dose of Rush Limbaugh and it would be a great trifecta of some of the most disgusting conservative celebrities.

And yes, I consider Sarah Palin a celebrity.  The woman was Governor of Alaska (even though she couldn’t even finish one full term) and she was a candidate for Vice President.  She hasn’t run for another political office and she’s not currently a politician.

She’s basically just a glorified reality TV personality.

That being said, and as much as people complain when anything is written about her, her opinion does still does have an impact on conservative voters.  Which tells you a lot about conservative voters.

Well, this time Palin decided to chime in on the ongoing controversy involving Wendy Davis’ opponent for Governor of Texas Greg Abbott, and his decision to make a few campaign stops with the draft-dodging, pedophile bigot Ted Nugent.

I get why gun rights nuts love Ted Nugent.  In fact, I think Nugent represents the views of most conservatives.  He talks a lot about guns, loathes President Obama and Hillary Clinton, opposes homosexuality, claims to not be racist by acting racist and talks a lot about “loving the Constitution” yet clearly doesn’t know a damn thing about it.


Sounds like the typical conservative voter I deal with every day.

And apparently Sarah Palin is a big fan.  As she took to tossing out a few endorsements, she decided to give one (kind of) for Greg Abbott.

Palin posted on her Facebook page:

“If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me.”

First, let me just say how “well informed” she clearly is about Greg Abbott.  Second, Ted Nugent is not someone with the class, respect and dignity that should make anyone blindly say, ‘Well, Ted Nugent likes him, so that’s a good enough for me!’

I know she reads “all” the papers, but maybe she missed the coverage Nugent has gotten lately with his choice to use a slur toward President Obama that was commonly used by Nazis in describing Jewish people.  I guess she respects someone who uses Nazi slurs to describe the President of the United States?

Or maybe it was when he told the president to “suck on a machine gun” or called Hillary Clinton a “c*nt.”

Either way, this is just another great example of those amazing “Republican conservative values.”  I get that both sides have their crazies, and Ted Nugent happens to be one of those right-wing radicals, but you don’t see Democrats parading around with them on the campaign trail.

Imagine what conservatives would say if a famous liberal told Bush to “suck on a machine gun, ” called Laura Bush a “c*nt” then a big-time time Democratic candidate for governor went around campaigning with that person.  Conservatives would lose their minds.

And it’s especially hypocritical for someone like Sarah Palin to praise someone who says such things as Ted Nugent has considering how “offended” she was when former MSNBC employee Martin Bashir implied that someone should defecate in her mouth.


While Bashir’s comments were disgusting, and I have no problem with him leaving MSNBC, at least he didn’t use Nazi terminology or tell the president to “suck on a machine gun.”

My question to Sarah Palin (or anyone who supports Nugent) is this: if what Ted Nugent has said and done in his life thus far doesn’t make him someone a major political candidate shouldn’t associate with (dodged the draft, had sex with underaged girls, drugs, 5 illegitimate kids, Nazi slurs), just what in the hell would?

But like I said before, Nugent represents exactly what conservatives stand for:

  • Superiority of white people
  • Guns
  • Intense hated of President Obama and Hillary Clinton
  • Hollow patriotism
  • Opposing homosexuality
  • Displaying total hypocrisy

You know, the real values that comprise the Republican party.

    Palin and Nugent….. Why don’t they both just go off grid. embarssing.

  • MaryAnn

    The evil version of Laurel and Hardy.

  • Veritas vos Liberabit

    I praise Sarah Palin’s olfactory senses. She can smell crap all the way from Alaska!!

    • Pipercat

      Hmm, just like a fly!

    • H Bruce Bailey

      Maybe ask Joe Biden ?

      • Pipercat

        No need to, he smells crap in the Senate. I guess that’s why Mitch decided to deal with him.

      • H Bruce Bailey

        My answer to that is depends ,Uncle Joes out trying to explain the lack of enrolles in the ahc

      • Pipercat

        Well, since you are trying pivot to Biden, go ahead and help yourself. Does not change the fact that Nugent and Palin are basically buffoons in the literal sense.

  • ditomagik

    I get such a kick out of her. What an idiot. Do you think she knows how to read?

    • Altreg01

      We think she can read, she was caught with notes written on her hands in marker for a speech. It is possible they were just doodles though

  • katherine norton malek

    Allen – You are far too polite & politically correct in this column. When I saw the article would be about SP and TN, I was looking forward to a knock-down slam bang in-your-face insult session. Disappointed. These two subhuman creatures from pond scum do not deserve a curse-free writing session. Indeed, when I contemplate these 2 losers, I cannot help but wish the ‘left’ had some crazies, one would be enough to get the job done. I mean where are assassins when you really need them? Look at the public figures who’ve met with assassin’s bullets for what they said and what they stood for; JFK, RFK, MLK Jr., John Lennon, hell, Abe Lincoln! Shows which side is really drinking crazy KoolAid. Can’t we at least breed one assassin to pop off these two hate mongers once and for all? It would be a community service rendered to all mankind.

    • surfjac

      ms. palin put targets on opponents and it wasn’t looked upon favorably. Talking “assassination” is equally disturbing. That’s why we have the vote.

      • H Bruce Bailey

        What target does she have in mind ?

      • Altreg01

        You seemed to forget when she used crosshairs on certain congressional elections a few years back. One happened to be Gabby Clifford who was in fact gunned down not to shortly after. Funny how you recall how great Turd Nugget was in the 60s but forget Palin’s crosshairs on political opponents

      • Tami Stevens

        That is complete rubbish. Jared Lee Loughner was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. his friends described his political views as “left wing, quite liberal”, and said he was obsessed with Gabby Gifford. It is disingenuous to blame Palin for the attack.

      • pierider

        Coincidence or not it goes to show HER mental state was no better than his.

      • Tami Stevens

        “They’re going to try to say that ‘that Obama is a scary guy,’ If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,”

        Barack Obama, June 13, 2008

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        wow– so now its ok?

      • Altreg01

        Your reading comprehension skills are quite lacking. I never said she was shot because of the crosshairs, I never even said they were related. No where did I blame Palins idiocy for Cliffords shooting. Just typical teabag seeing what they want to see. Try harder next time please.

      • Tami Stevens

        You wrote ,”You seemed to forget when she used crosshairs on certain congressional elections a few years back. One happened to be Gabby Clifford who was in fact gunned down not to shortly after.” Are you saying that you were not implying cause and effect, I ask, because that is how it comes across.

    • pierider

      Oh we have cazies on the left too. Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, the woman who introduced the spanking bill in Kansas. We gotta own up to our lunatics as well. Just sayin.

      • Tami Stevens

        Thank you pierider. That is what bothers me most about the democrats, they ignore their own crazies, and rip the ones in the republican party. I very seldom see any democrat bring that up. Much respect.

      • Ed

        The Democrats, even the non-crazies like Pres. Obama, have constantly been ripped to shreds by the right. Where have you been Tami and Pierider???

      • Russell Ash

        Where were you when they were marching with signs that said “Kill Bush” and comparing him to Hitler?

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        agreed,,,,,,,,,,,, the dems were as bad; repubs now worse. alls fair in love and war

      • Russell Ash

        I hate the hypocrisy. Both sides throw stones and act like they are the only ones with broken windows.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        yea– but remember this: when is the last time U saw a liberal/democrat/leftist screaming for JEEEESUS in policy?

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        in church or just smiling and saying ” see? that truth”

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        funny how FOX “news” cronies don’t mention at all the death of the 17 yr old kid playing his MUSIC LOUD when a middle aged white trash gunned him down and didn’t call cops; now that white trash regressive fool is claiming HE is a victim,,,
        where were all of U for that???

        “Church”???

  • Karen Hayes

    Watch out Sarah, he’ll fuck your daughters….. oh wait, he’ll have to get behind the hockey player…….

    • Russell Ash

      And they say republicans are rude and say ignorant things.

      • Kenny

        Karen is only speaking crudely to emphasize what kind of trashy person Nugent is. There is NO denying that he is white trash at its finest.

      • Tami Stevens

        He is a rock star from the 70’s and the only reason he matters is because people report the fringe things he says. He does not represent the majority of conservatives.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        funny how conservative claim this; yet almost NEVER speak out against cretins such as he and beck and Limbaugh when those dolts go haywire.
        ,,,,,,,,,,,,yet THOSE non speaking regressives scream murder when a liberal goes haywire

      • Anthony Edwards

        There is actually facts to back this up. Normally I wouldn’t defend this kind of vitriol, and I think it could be stated better. I should remind my fellows on the left-of-center that we should act better than this..

      • C. Huus

        Why? What good has being polite liberals done us in the past? Hmm? We reach across the aisle and republicans call us weak. We try to compromise and the GOP withdraws into the arms of its reactionary fringe. We elect a moderate president and they hate him for being black! I am sick of it. The GOP and tea bagger fucktards need a bit of trolling now. Ive been a poor unemployed victim of bad GOP policy, graduated from college during the worst recession in history and I have ever GODDAMN fucking right to be pissed at these obstructionist FUCKERS in the fucking GOP! Tell me to keep it civil and I”ll tell you to blow it out your ass.

      • Russell Ash

        How do you feel when it it is the democrats being obstructionist? They have and are, when ever they are not in power. What GOP policy are you a victim of?

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        shall we start with Iraq?

      • Russell Ash

        Iraq? You mean the war that the democrats in offcie voted for and asked for, the one that was predated by Clinton’s half-hearted Tomahawk missiles barrage of tents? That was when he and Gore, and Biden, and Kerry, and Hillary Clinton, and Pelosi and Reid and Kennedy, all swore they knew that Saddam Hussein had WMD’s two years before Bush even took office? The Iraq war that democrats rattled their sabres, and worked to get the votes for? That war?

        Shall we talk about the government contracts Clinton gave Halliburton, or that Dick Cheney, regardless of what you heard, had cut his ties with Halliburton and sold his stock. What he did receive, was stock options, the right to by his stock back, as per his employment contract, at a certain price. This and all of his families other stock was put into a trust he had no control over. Liberals love to talk about Cheney, but they forget George Soros owns more Halliburton stock then Cheney ever did, and that Obama and Clinton both gave Halliburton and it’s subsidiaries like KBR huge no-bid contracts.

        We could talk about Hussein paying the families of terrorist homicide-bombers $25,000 when they attacked Israel and US citizens?

        Shall we talk about the numerous treaty violations? The missile attacks on USAF planes (that in it self is an act of war)? The non-compliance with the UN weapons inspectors? The missiles Iraq had that they were not supposed to have? Saddam Hussein was unquestionably one of the most brutal dictators of the 20th century. History cannot even begin to record the full scale of his b rutal atrocities and the effect they had on those affected and the families of those affected. But his most horrific acts, including the al-Anfal genocide, were committed in full view of then US and the rest of the world,

        Make no mistake: The ouster of Saddam Hussein was a victory for human rights, and if there is any silver lining to come from the brutal Iraq War, it is that Hussein is no longer slaughtering and torturing his own people.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        bottom line as history paints it: leaders ( presidents/dictators/kings/ etc) have certain “legacies” attributed –right or wrong- to them because it happens on their administration. Ergo Iraq war= bush. 9/11 = bush…. losing AAA rating = Obama. solyndra =Obama. hosuing bubble=bush…medicare D = bush ( ask seniors how that tastes),,,,Clinton=23 million jobs produced/ surplus $$$….. bush =lowest job creation….Reagan = “cold war” end ( we will see now) Reagan = triple deficit. Clinton= twin towers attack#1….Obama = ACA ( time will tell; but is slowly working) saddam? bye bye saddam? hello ( again) iran pain-in-ass !!! I don’t care about saddams killing people; they are scumbags as they didn’t revolt- so let them cook. don’t give me this crap about “he killed his people”— lets visit todays African nations ; OK???
        End result is: the new TEA PARTY white trash “john birch ” religious scum are so far pretty mentally unbalanced,,,, until the “normal” republicans can take control I will stick with liberal democrats and all their BS

      • H Bruce Bailey

        I know this is crazy , msnbc interns

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        so do liberals and dems,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        the problem? regressive tea party republicans bring JEEEESUS in the mix. Im allergic to VOODOO and superstition

      • Russell Ash

        You are referring to the evangelicals. As a group, 70% of evangelicals are republicans, guess what party has the rest? Evangelicals make up less then then a third of the republican party, and oddly enough, that same goes for the tea party, only about a third of them are evangelicals, like Palin, for whom their religion plays a larger part in their political beliefs. The rest are more like 72% of the democrat party, Christians who go to church at least once a month, and/or believe that there is a God, and consider themselves Christians.

        Yes, it’s true, between 67%-74% of democrats, depending on the poll, consider themselves Christian, and go to church at least once a month. As a nation, over 90% of us affiliate with a religion, and 72% of us go to church at least once a month. I am not once of those. I go to church Chrstimas, Easter, and maybe four more times a year.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        I remain allergic and hating all religion. GOD has open arms to those who seek GOD– and ya’ don’t need a book or building or mantra/dogma to seek.
        keep all religion out of government–period

        Hey Nugent doesnt drink or do drugs but he slept with just about everywoman on the planet . I’m thinking he does have some things you may like . Unfortunatly, you have to pretend ask uncle Ted he did it !

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        in the business MY business is in I can give old crusty ted a run for his money with sleeping ( sleeping??) with chics; Im into quality- not quantity. Luckily I get both: the diff? nugent has more money 9 supposedly) and is insane. I look a ton better and am much more fun and balanced with women. He might screw chics with boobjo0bs: I do NOt do that ( already did it waaaay 2 much—UGGGH)

      • H Bruce Bailey

        Yea , piper cat that is the most intelligent thing I have read here . Feedom of expression, opinions that’s what it is all about

    • Katie Kenny McMullin

      Because it’s their right to speak and our punishment to hear them. We will be continuously tormented by their diatribes, which, of course, they only profess in like company. It’s a pity they lack intellect to the point where they dismiss true patriotic behavior and troll around with a cult like following to scream “Hip, Hip, Hooray” to their mean spirited and repugnant vitriol.

      • Dot

        Although they have the right to say it, no one has the requirement to print it. Back before the present wars started, we here in Kansas had to put up with the Phelps. They used to picket young people funerals, because in their mind if someone died young, they must have died from AIDS and must be gay. No patriot guard showed up for these families. They were fading into the woodwork, because the local press started to ignore them, but then Bush took us to war, and they found out they could get national coverage protesting soldier’s funerals. It’s all about attention, and if we would stop paying attention to them, they might go away. Nugent almost did. The only ones who listened to him before the tea party were some burnt out people with poor taste in music.

      • Sunny Ray

        +1!!

        BTW, can’t hear the words fuck, dick or shit on tv but we can hear their shit everywhere… that’s all right…

      WHy would you say that , what country do you live in ?Man , you don’t have to agree but to attack would be very Chris mathews like .WE will be alright because on one of his shows he apoligized for white men
      doesnt anyone here in this forum dabate each other or do the Majority just call peole they don’t agree with names .I’m curious

      • Sunny Ray

        Man, I’m just doing the same thing those animals are doing, freedom of speech, sorry if I hurt you, but they do hurt me but they are not sorry about that.

  • Sandy Greer

    Is anyone surprised Sarah likes Ted?

    She is the Guest of Honor (along with Ted Cruz) at TeaPug rallies where they fly the Confed flag outside the White House, and wear Tshirts emblazoned “Put the WHITE back in the White House” and where some other crazy says our president is Muslim, on his knees, praying to Allah 5 times a day.

    It’s like a race to the ‘crazy’ on The Right; a friggin stampede, it is.

    • H Bruce Bailey

      wait till Nov . It should be interesting ,to me it makes no difference anymore . till some of these cronnies get out

    • Bradly R Stegall

      Sandy…I know retirement is slow at times, but please read between the lines. Them Tshirts were worn by paid union members and people off the streets…never the less Paid! I’m not sure about Obama’s prayer habits, but when you have people who are known to have associations with the Muslim Brotherhood visiting the White House, one has to wonder about Obama’s Background and if there are any ties. Take some time and do some research. If you’re gonna do some battle bring some ammo.

  • Sam

    Ted Nugent strikes me as the “Poster Boy of the Bigtime Losers”! Anyone with his track record of: zero talent, pedophilia, draft dodging, hate spewing, gun loving, bigotry, not to mention the “biggest mouth on the planet Earth”, just epitomizes the worst men in this Country. Any woman who would want to associate her name with his, all I can say to her is: You are an embarrassment to all intelligent and classy women everywhere, ……………. yes, you, Mrs. Palin.

    • H Bruce Bailey

      sounds like most liberals of the 60’s and 70’s .You must be born in the 80’s or later .Ted Nugent has been on the charts since the 60’s

        Not doing any better in Spanglish either, are you?

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        Spanish is a filthy language made up of smallish syntax,,,,
        when we go to some dirty 3rd world beggar country that speaks that crud we will learn it—
        how about latinos learning to read and write–and speak– MY language???

      • Ellen H.

        I didn’t realize Spain was a third world country.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        pretty close,,,,,,, as their economy is collapsing
        hopefully RUSSIA is next!

      • Sunny Ray

        American economy is not doing great either… Spain third world country? Apparently you’ve never been there and you don’t know what you are talking about. Also, Latinos speak and write English, AND Spanish you ignorant, how many languages do you speak and read?

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        as I am a self employed chef who is financially well off ( passive residual income exceeding my bills; my BUSINESS is 100% cash; my capital gains from stock/option trading and real estate income -1 commercial/ 1 residential all here in sunny south florida) I can only look at the numbers given by governments: USA slowly improving ,,,spain? stuck in neutral at BEST. Care to ‘double down’ on YOUR ignorance? I speak ENGLISH: and do so QUITE well. The VAST majority of latinos here in USA do NOT speak or write MY language well; and I will learn other beggar nations rhetoric when and IF I want to live in those underdeveloped ( in MANY way) countries. Spain has a 25% unemployment (50% for youth) nand its MOODYS rating sucks ( baa2) and while it has SOME good movement it is tied to the EU which is screwed,,, yes: that makes spain 3rd world.
        you care to show off YOUR up2the minute comprehension regarding world markets??

      • Sunny Ray

        Spain is ranked 22nd out of 48 countries in the Europe region, so if people listen to you, more than half of Europe is a third world… go back to your kitchen…

        World market is not the purpose here… and since you are so picky, if you are asking me a question, “you care” is wrong, “do you care” is right 😉

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        my highly profitable and easy 2 run ( thank U employees!!) kitchen is in pompano beach Fl– far far from those beggars in Europe, yes: beggars– my acute xenophobia *( well deserved as I have dated far too many “other culture” skankbag ‘women’) remains intact. Let all the trash overseas stay there and hate America as they all WANT2COME HERE!!! 3rd world? damn straight. U can take all of the dated and decaying historic “culture” from Greece/ Italy/Egypt/ ‘persia’ and all other broken countries and let them rot. I don’t need them; don’t want them– MY COUNTRY (usa) reigns supreme. tons of beautiful lands ( starting with my all2merry south florida) and the freedom to become financially independent despite crybaby white trash Christian atavistic scum attempting morality ( as scumbag religions do world wide)
        NOTE: DO YOU CARE is CORRECT; not “right” if U wish to split hairs

      • Sunny Ray

        Maybe is because you are a cretin that you’ve been bumped so many times… “Let all the trash overseas stay there and hate America as they all WANT2COME HERE”… you are really disturbed man, don’t make such a generalization, people surely hate you but not America, and they all don’t want to come here. You would realize that if you would stick your nose somewhere else besides south Florida.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        been in 27 states in my life: lived in 5. I believe you misspelled DUMPED. I can assure U that (yes) I have been ‘dumped’…………… and can even more readily convey that as Ive had sex with over 300 women ( and only TWO- early in my life) have been flat or small chested I have dumped many more than have ‘dumped’ me. I am willing to over-wager that in addition to your poor spelling you probably are quite prolific in quotidian onanistic behaviors. BRAVO!!
        people in scumbag countries don’t hate us? Seems u need 2 catchup on worldwide current views,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and not just the middle east

      • Sunny Ray

        What I see is that you are an avid practitioner of mental onanism, and the words you are using trying to show yourself as a smart guy, are from Latin, culture that you hate, and that makes you an idiot. Do you know how a woman that had sex with over 300 men is called? Well, it applies for men too.

        You should check your sources, if you use any, about worldwide views, you’ll be surprised.

        BTW, glad your business is doing great.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        im a slut– formerly: now have a sexy great GF—
        the words I use are not ALL from LATIN genesis: and LATIN has been dead for eons. I do luv how U use ( poorly) a word I used here as U never heard of it B4 this diatribe; ergo you are jejune.

      • Dot

        The less than elegant communicator known as H Bruce Bailey claimed he could communicate better in French or Spanish. He was wrong. Spanish is my second language, and I am a retired Spanish teacher. I realize that you are probably not smart enough to learn another language, but that’s no excuse for your narrow minded attitude. And obviously you know nothing about Spanish if you think it has a “smallish syntax”, whatever that “technical” term means. I would say modern English has a “smallish syntax”, especially for those who use the “f-word” language. Many of our citizens don’t even know much about their own language, and do not communicate well.

      • H Bruce Bailey

        Thanks Dot . Isnt syntax a synthetic motor oil ?.I totally agree with you about lack of communication due to lack of knowledge of it .You know Dot , Do you know what I do ? Dont be so judgemental , Why would you say I am not smart enough to learn another language . Did you become an authority when you taught spanisn on intelligents . I think I dont know but if I took you and put you in my buisness for just an hour you wouldnt know what to do , right! it doesnt make you less smart than me .Now if I showed you what t do then we woulfd be communicating then with time you wouldnt be any smarter but more informed .we all win . You as a teacher should know this . Again to prejudge people by what you think they think is arrogant

      • H Bruce Bailey

        sorry cut off .and really kind of ignorant .Narrow minded what exactly did I say for you to say that .
        Isee you are a retired spanish teacher .you spelled retired wrong you left out the a. Sorry ,bad joke , Teaching is a wonderful thing .You guys are always under paid , and under rated . Though my Mother was a teacher from CT . she made alot of Money etc She Had 3 degrees 3 different universities Phi beta cappa, like you and other people they would say what happened to him he get dropped on his head ,did alot of my own braincell killings . She wasnt to happy with me I chose to do the school of hard knocks.I also have retired from the University Of Texas . I went back to work last week Ugg. Know I made you not predjudice to me by giving you enough info to form a educated enough opinion , ok I’m still an idiot but a happy one Peace Hbb

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        please read my above response to DOT,,,,,,,
        she is creepy

      • Ellen H.

        Syntax is the proper word order in sentences. Most English sentences begin with a subject and end with the predicate. However, you can have inverted syntax which is the opposite and called passive voice.

      • H Bruce Bailey

        thanks , very informative .

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        in vocal distribution of our language so-called PROPER syntax is many many times inverted and destroyed for a reason; malapropping is one of them. Comedic effect is another– and the king ( sarcasm) reigns supreme in this blathering joviality. Can be colloquially expressed; but essentially correct.
        Try joining us in the higher plane– its actually very rewarding

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        I think she went after me,,,,not you. If she went after both of us TRUST ME I have delightfully eviscerated her

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        if(??) u are a teacher and ‘kinda’ know English U should know it is the most complex all-around language in the world as it has accumulated from all ( or many ) other languages; ergo many idioms dominate and they can be limited to areas of the USA ( try going to deep south; Ive been there enough to NEVER go back) which agrees with the accuracy of the end of your uneven writing above.
        We who LOVE the depth and intricacies OF our amalgamation of language(s) know that mastering English ( or Americanized English) is a lifelong endeavor. THUS: me being a thelyphthoric lover of gracile macromastial women ( example of my ”lexiphania”) would hopefully effectuate within you the propitiousness in awareness that , indeed I am highly capable ( but totally UN willing) to absorb the needed chrestomathy to learn a second language.
        TRANSLATION: I am a lover — for decades now– of being a sesquipedalian. My ability to properly structure sentences is fair; my vocabulary is ever-growing.
        My narrow minded attitude conveys my xenophobia especially concerning the rampant anger and violence (SEE: self titled “passion”) which I have been marinated in all my life by being around the urchins from “espanol” & “latino” 3rd world countries which has spoiled and polluted my fair native south florida. NOTE: many of the latina women are possible the finest aesthetic examples of human reproduction as I have entered the bodies of countless ones in my life. THAT dubious experience has led me to my “narrow minded” attitude. THEY ARE culturally INSANE…. When U have as much experience as I do please write me back; until then keep reminding us with your written bavardage of what Herbert Spencer wrote : “the bar against all spiritual development……. contempt PRIOR to investigation”
        ……………..and edify me if U wish to have a state certified IQ test ‘twixt us. I will wager my 50K against your 5k; escrowed until test is complete. That offer remains ad infinitum

      • Ellen H.

        I agree with Dot. Your communication skills are less than eloquent and a bit disjointed.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        sounds like u need a dictionary to understand much of the words I utilize. also- if thou be micromastial and /or steatopygous I do not accept U as a TRUE “woman” ……
        real women — in MY delightfully myopic view– are LARGE breasted and NOT overweight.
        NOTE: non-medical booooob–jobs are scurvy which are bought and worn by “wanna be’s”

      • Ellen H.

        I guess incoherent would be better since you bring up things that really have nothing to do with what is being discussed. If anyone is a worthless wanna be it’s you. My measurements are really none of your concern and basically a red herring. I do agree you are very myopic.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        hey skankbag— I was replying to another ( seemingly) skankbag who attempted -poorly– to denigrate my intellect and my ostensible ability to write with “moxie”; ergo- the topic slid to a sub topic.
        I am quite incoherent to my pet Argentine TEGU lizard,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        his oligophreniality rivals yours.
        Im a wanna be? what exactly do I want to be?
        The fact you “bit” upon that erstwhile statement indeed indicates that you find a scathing truth which is transposed here now aspersively towards me. Incoherent? I find cretins of your ilk quite entertaining in a pathetic way– that’s which U cannot comprehend is now that which is mocked.

        Sounds like true religious regressive white trash “thinking”

      • Ellen H.

        No, you weren’t; the arrow indicating to whom you were replying was pointing to me. At what point was religion brought up? I’m an ultra liberal Episcopalian and not in anyway close to being either white trash or a religious regressive.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        allow me to edify:
        your reply to me concerned MY rhetoric with DOT……MY CONVERSATION WITH DOT–
        are U with me so far?
        =========================
        you then (which drew my umbrage) sent me a less-than-friendly comment letting ME know that U agreed with DOT
        Normally the erudite would send said comment to DOT trumping me/ my post to her.
        you decided to admonish me……
        hence: I am now trashing you. Religion was not brought up: my assessment of what I see ( all2often) in your insipid remark(s) to me simply was it reminds me of how regressive white trash religious scum react. If U cannot tell that easy to recognize difference perhaps you might want2 brush up on separation of thought/dialogue presented.
        Did I miss or mess(up) anything so far? You drew “1st blood”,,,,,when that happens I empty my cannons.

      • Ellen H.

        You’re a legend in your own mind.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        that’s generally the type of reply I expect from trash that get busted and still cry-
        are u certain U aren’t a FOX “news” zealot? U certainly sound exactly as they do!.

      • Ellen H.

        I detest FOX news and mostly read the PBS news site and the BBC news site. You certainly jump to a lot of conclusions.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        I LOVE FOX “news”!!!!! they continually remind me that I am indeed placed upon the correct side of the political diatribe,,,, and I am with you in delightfully watching the slow arduous well-deserved atrophying of the disgusting (john birch phase 2) tea party trash.
        my representation regarding you as a FOX “news” watcher was allegorical.
        The next time you decide to go after someone who has NOT sent you an initial message please remember that there are those of us ( such as meeeeeeeeeee) who will not stand for that.
        adieu

      • Ellen H.

        I just find it amusing that you got so worked up i.e. using all caps, elongating words. I guess you never comment on what other people are saying.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        cupcake,,,,, it is called emphasis
        ———- noteworthy is you sidestepping me slapping you down ( your initially crybaby message to me) and you don’t acknowledge your error
        the audience is applauding!

      • Ellen H.

        Well, Harpy, again, I find it amusing to mess with people who get all worked up. Really, you slapped me down? Then why do I not feel slapped down? I’m just even more amused.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        amused? certainly NOT by the micromastial and / or steatopygous “figure” nature and your parents bequeathed you

      • Ellen H.

        No, I’m amused by your overly inflated ego and your little made up phrase although I know steatopygous refers to excess buttocks fat. For some reason I’m not impressed.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        I love when I catch a skankbag imbecile who CRIES when busted for sticking her obtrusive nose in someone elses stuff- which is easily construed as mistake #1———– mistake #2? not recognizing mistake #1,,,,,,,mistake #3? not rectifying the prior stupidities: ergo mistake #4…….. continuing to exhibit overt arrogance and stupidity by still crying. Im very appreciative of your being inexorable even in the face of sheer portrayal of your oligophreniality.

      • Ellen H.

        I Haven’t cried. I’ve laughed. You apparently have some real issues.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        I have tepid “issues” with flat chested fat c*nts who get busted being nosy an stay scummy by still “crying” about dither. I love miserable cunts— they allow the the dark victory of ( again) knowing what real women are—and in thy case: are NOT

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        of equal importance is my anathemal view towards micromastial viragos such as yourself

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        you have been vanquished

      • Ellen H.

        Really? I don’t feel vanquished.

      • Sunny Ray

        “English U should know it is the most complex all-around” I suggest you try Japanese, you’ll have a real taste of complexity.
        I speak and write 4 languages and the easiest one was English, it took me 3 months to speak and read it… Apparently you are well educated but you have a disfunction within your ego, just like Ted Cruz….

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        speaking /reading English is commendable. mastering it is decades away. I know nothing about japanese except I can cook it as Im a chef who has ( 1987-88) worked in a fine Japanese restaurant.
        NOTE: as a ‘proof’ to my initial observation please spell dysfunction better next time. my ego has been quite humbled by the vicissitudes of a very experienced life-
        –thy application of ” contempt prior to investigation” is noted and discarded

      • Sunny Ray

        So you can’t just say that English is the most complex language since you have nothing to compare with… sorry for the misspelling, I’m not perfect.
        I’m sure you had or are having a very experienced life, really glad for you, but you didn’t or aren’t learning the right lessons from it.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        according to a cretin such as you who is SANS life experience?
        seems “contempt prior 2 investigation” remains thy obfuscatory mantra

      • Sunny Ray

        Yes, seems like you are the cretin.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        your “ability” to reply has vanished

      • Sunny Ray

        No, I just don’t waste my time with arrogant and immature people. God bless you and your xenophobia.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        hey gerbil droppings—–when U ( more than once) use words which I have entered into this verbiage you are showing quite the lack of elocution. Please attempt to be less nugatory in your next crybaby rant

      • Sunny Ray

        So you are xenophobe (afraid of foreigners) and you like calling names… you sound like a weak person.
        Your dramaturgy is lamentable and laughable.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        it also means having a distrust of foreigners and foreign ‘customs’
        …………..look up a word as U evidently don’t have the moxie to possess such “lexiphania” in your daily discourse……and name calling? keeps me light on my feet– especially with idiots who have to look up every other word I use

      • Sunny Ray

        I guess that is what you say to your clients and employees… Don’t need to look up, you are the very definition of lexiphanic.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        awwwwww………………!!! Im humbled by that!! thank UUU! (now; as my gift 2U– look up “Marilyn lange ” photos———— the finest looking woman EVER to grace planet earth

        RU from England ?Hey I think all should have to go through the process of citizenship .Not easy shortcuts .I see alot of disrespect for America,from a very small amout of ahhhhh illegals .the aristicratic Gov say in mexico has no middle class and you are poor or rich . Mexico has some beautiful country .SO, they will come here to work for nothing basically . Take 2 jobs at minimum.Some of the hardest working people though , to support the family ususally of more than 3 children .this has a bad affect on our economy in many ways . Our Constitution doesn’t really translate to spanish very well . SO after one become a citizen maybe give them the education of reading and writing .let them pay for it out of their salaries .This would help very much in the COMMUNICATION so we can all try to do better and learn from each other .Peace Hbb

        not really I learned it on my own managing and working around many Hispanics , They all could not understand each other being costillion Spanish or flat out border Spanish. Tx slang. Panama , south America . RU hispanic you would probably know what I am talking about .The hard ones where tring to run a Kitchen withpeople from Laos , viet Nam . Japan .cambdia . Hispanic dialects etc and try to Teach Kitchen skills to all .I sort of communicate it may not be the picture perfect English with perfect grammar but I have pulled my hair out and have have to some extent fiqured out how to communicate with all .My last gig was feeding the Juvenile delinquents about 300 I worked for a county in Texas . The kids speak another language that my friends and i do even though it is English . I had a staff of 20 not one fluid in English .When I worked for the Radission hotels I had a wait staff 2 of which were English Majors .I guess these days we do the best we can to communicate .sorry rambling on here have a good one Dot .

        Poor spelling doesn’t necessarily mean you are a bigot, but it might hint at the fact that you aren’t very bright. You like Ted Nugent, and his low class, hate speeches. Obviously you are an idiot.

      • H Bruce Bailey

        read what you just wrote , You call Nuget a bigot and what you just wrote about me with out knowing me . You know the definition of ignorance.Pretty pitiful . You sound like one of those caring people so long as they agree with you !This a resume for msnbc ?

I dont mean me , but you are a hypocrite . It proves this to what you say .I am not a big fan of uncle Teds speeches he is mostly over the top .Most here call him a loser . depends how you define success.Kenny dont be so quick in called people names it makes you look like an idiot and I pretty sure your not .peace brother

I’m not even sure if these guys are liberals… this stuff sounds like Tea Party rants – no offense intended. They just seem generically insulting. I hope you don’t believe everything you read.

        Negative, Mr. Bailey. I was born in the 50’s, and I certainly am old enough to know what a draft dodger is, and, I know who Ted Nugent is. I also am certainly old enough to spot a loser, and he, Mrs. Palin, Rush Limbaugh and friends are some of the biggest losers of this Country. If you support their views, you are also a loser. You don’t like it, go watch Fox News and let your brain be filled with more of their B.S., instead of trying to spar verbally with us intelligent, common sense types.

      • H Bruce Bailey

        Good for you ,yea I dont agree by a long shot with most especially rush .He is making money doing what he is doing to piss you off . I dont listen to him .I dont put much into msnbsc either .Spend 2 monthe on lane closing on the GWB . freakin bridge is like that all the time .What is youer definition of a loser someone that doesnt agree with you?That to me doesnt sound to intelligent . you want to spar verbally over losers .You must admit that the media is a liitle bias ,I am not saying this because. fox says so.Just be un bias for a second and listen to how much time is spent on BS .I have actually several times seen clips edited so badly by the msnbc it made me not give them any credibility .They do what they are told both Fox and msnbc .How intelligent is it to spar bias information .
        Have a good night .You do sound intelligent . and I respect yopur opinion .But I dont Mathews , ed shultz. Oriely out of touch , you know what the power does . peace Brother

      • H Bruce Bailey

        where did I say uncle Ted was a draft dodger . i thought i explained what dodging the draft was all about it was because you didnt believe in the war !not because you were scared and acted crazy to get a section 8 as one person tried to explain to me .that to me isnt draft dodging , beside who cares do he bother you that much then he is doing what he is setting out to do .It’s Uncle Ted he is an old washed up rock and roller . Youd ont have like what he says . so relax . some of the people in thei forum . What is the hard left these days explain what that is .

        I wasnt a big fan , I was more then jeff beck and jazz Fusion allman Bros etc .

      • Guest

        Yes, I was never a TN fan either; and of course, now Hey Baby has a creepy perv ring to it. I’m more a fan of Super Session, Jeff Beck (Truth awesomeness!), Santana, John Mayall, CSNY etc.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        try king crimson and mahavishnu orchestra and weather report.
        my faves? ELP and YES

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        stranglehold yes; other stuff irritating

      • TerKay

        My thoughts exactly. And now Hey Baby has a creepy perv sound to it!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        well; this may assuage your ears……. listen to jimi Hendrix “hey baby”!!! totally different song and a superior guitarist from his final—and I feel his greatest– album. nugents hey baby is perv-is maximus

      • LarryEWells

        Bailey your ignorance is astounding!! First the number you were assigned in the draft lottery had nothing to do with dodging the draft. The lower your number the sooner you got called. Draft dodging is when you refuse to eat solid food then refuse to bathe, then deficate and urinate in your pants for a week so your declared mentally incompetent to serve as Turd Nugent did. As far as Turds musical ability he basically had two hits then the washed up moron has been riding on that “fame” ever since. Turd Nugent is not only a fake patriot but a pedophile, a dead beat dad and an asshole who cant stand being out of the limelight.

      • H Bruce Bailey

        Sure Larry , I would have reciters at my door everday after school . I had lost friends in NAM say a month before . the low lot # meant I was going !this to me may have someting to do with dodging the draft. do I want to die like my friends or go to canada . I dint dodge .I was scared . section 8 was a cowardway to me . That wasnt for me I understand completely why people did this .Section 8 doesnt mean dodging the draft it is a way to dodge the draft People in this forum seem to like to call each other ignorant .I dont know what makes you an expert .Many would dodge by leaving the country little cleaner .LArry where you there ?Or who told you this info .i was lucky the war ended , saigon fell the draft was stopped .I had just turned 18 this’ll happened at the same time Thank God , Didnt have to go .RIP Paul, Ed ,Bobby , They probably could have explained this better but they didnt make it back . probably just as well the disrespect the nam vets got was shameful
        Peace Ignorant Bailey

        u have some real creeps going after you

      • LarryEWells

        Where was I? I was in high school when my brother serve 32 months in Nam, got two purple hearts three Bronze stars and a silver star because people like Turd and you used section 8 to dodge. As soon as I was old enough I joined the Army however they were leaving Nam so that even though I tried to volunteer to go to Nam they wouldn’t send me. So unlike cowards like Turd Nugent I did serve even though I was too young to go to Nam. May that coward and others rot in hell!!

      • musikfanat22

        Hey, “Beetle” Bailey, they were taking up 125-130 in the draft lottery…

      • RSPKL

        You don’t know what you are talking about. He did dodge the draft three times. The first two were because of school and the last one was because of him pretending to be insane and arriving with crap in his pants and not bathing for weeks. How do you take up for such a sick lowlife. He has 12 children by lots of different girls. He signed away two of babies for he wouldn’t have to pay child support. He wrote and sung two songs about pedophilia and he became a guardian of a 17 year old girl for he could have sex with her. He has called for the execution of the president of the United States but your type stands up for this low life pos. You must be just like him.

      • RSPKL

        Oh, my husband retired from the Navy, my father-in-law served in two different branches and my mother-in-law served in the Army so yes, I know what a draft dodger is but apparently you don’t.

    • H Bruce Bailey

      Nugent is very sucessfull . He has different opinions , what is sucess to you . ?

      • Sam

        Ted Nugent, successful? Not in my opinion. He spews hate, bigotry, love of guns, draft dodging, slept with under-age girls. Wow, if that is your idea of success, I have nothing in common with you. I would suggest you get your priorities straight on what makes a person successful. In my opinion, it does not have anything to do with how wealthy a person is. I am not much of a Bible reader, but even in the Bible it says that a rich man will have a harder time getting into heaven than a poor man. I would admire a person who had the words on his/her gravestone that would say they were: kind, compassionate, humble, generous, courageous, a champion for the underdog. Wealth and fame and power mean nothing if they are not used to make this world a better place.

      • icantbeliveyou

        And that success has anything to do with not liking him as a person, a symbol, his beliefs, what he stands for, or the evaluations of his mental state how ?

      Because the law is not settled on that issue. His mother was an American national born in Delaware.

      Just another thought . george zimmerman hasnt had a traffic ticket in a while otherwise the man that is going to save us from racism by bring it to the attention again AL Sharpton would have reported on it .

    • Russell Ash

      In 2011, on the Oct. 14 broadcast of MSNBC’s “Politics Nation,” Grayson declared “What people see is that they’re falling into debt slavery – falling into debt slavery, where they owe more than they own on their house. They’re buried in credit card debt.”

      The notion of debt slavery has been touted by the liberal media for years. Since 2009, the Huffington Post made four separate references to “debt slavery,” comparing student loan and Wall Street lending debts to slavery. These articles featured headlines such as “Slavery Legal in America Again” and “Slaves of Wall Street.”

      Huffington Post contributor Ronald Robinson even urged readers to “Sign New Emancipation Proclamation to Free Us From Debt Slavery.” Comparisons between American slavery and debt don’t get more blatant than that.

      The notion of “debt slavery” has also been common among members of the liberal Media Consortium, including Alternet and MotherJones.

      The left.. I do believe this article mentioned hypocrites.

      • icantbeliveyou

        “Our free stuff today is being paid for today by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When that money comes due and, this isn’t racist, so try it, try it anyway, this isn’t racist, but it’s going to be like slavery when that note is due. Right? We are going to be beholden to a foreign master.” Notice how nowhere in the speech she says “Debt” .. and everything you mentions does … the right does seem to have a fascination with anyone not white, straight, and rich.. Maybe they never have met anyone with those quality’s ? I if someone was going to get kicked from the media for being inflammatory, how does Rush Limbaugh exist ?

      • Tami Stevens

        “When that money comes due” is debt.

      • Russell Ash

        “Our free stuff today is being paid for today by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When that money comes due”, is debt.

        The same way Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson exists.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        Reagan accelerated our debt to ( predominantly) china…..
        Sharpton and Jackson are trash– and Im a liberal

      • Russell Ash

        LOL you do not see me defending Nugent. My responses were inspired by the ignorant blanket statement at the end of the article.

        “But like I said before, Nugent represents exactly what conservatives stand for:

        Superiority of white people
        Guns
        Intense hated of President Obama and Hillary Clinton Hollow patriotism
        Opposing homosexuality
        Displaying total hypocrisy

        You know, the real values that comprise the Republican party.”

        Most of the conservatives I know are more interested in eliminating deficit spending, paying down the national debt, free markets with less barriers of entry, reducing the size of our bloated government, and the idea that with every civil right, comes a civil responsibility.

        Never once have been around a large group of conservatives, hell, never once have I been around any conservatives, and heard, “Well boys lets go grab that bleck feller obama, and that ugly wench Clinton, grab our guns, and take ’em to forest and let ’em know what for! I mean they love them homos and blacks and lahteenos and dammit lets do it for god and country. I mean Jesus loves the Uwhited States of ‘Merica! And I am a christian and that is just the christian thing to do!”

        There may be some fool on the fringe that feels that way, but that does not represent most republicans, any more then Sharpton and Jackson represent most democrats.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        my confusion stems from how I almost NEVER see or hear from the republicans which U accurately identify. (NOTE: Sharpton/Jackson are scumbags who make big money doing the same shit I see tea party and FOX “news” do)
        when I hear or see ANYTHING from the “right” its always what I detest; so– wher is/are those sensible republicans? being called RINOs by the scumbags I abhor? dragging evisceration of rights for women/ gays/ blacks ET AL and icing it by trying this disgusting religious john birch crap entry into state governments??? I am with you on what was presented here- but telling me that republicans are against deficit spending is absurd: none since IKE has a balanced budget. NONE!!!! They have not only allowed but fueled the religious (SEE: christian ONLY) influx attempts in policy- always in states usually in the south ( usually; not always) Free markets with limited barriers?? SIR!!!! without sensible watching these free market businesses we will eat shitty food; drink bad water; have desecrated land and planes that can ( whoops) fall from the sky– we need regulation. I agree with “caveat emptor” but cannot watch stuff too big for me to watch.
        please tell me which REPUBLICAN politicians of TODAY are worthy of me listening to

        Left-leaning Pew Research Center analyzed more than 700 hours of cable news programming consisting of more than 15,000 individual stories from 2007 and 2012.According to Pew Research Center, “which cable network is the most opinionated is not a matter of opinion. It’s MSNBC.

        MSNBC is in left-wing outer space, providing 85% opinion and 15% reportage. A full 85% of the network’s coverage can be classified as opinion or commentary rather than actual news, according to the authors of the Pew Research Center’s annual State of the News Media report.”

        The same Pew Research Center study also found that “CNN and Fox News Channel, meanwhile, fall much closer to a 50/50 distribution”

        That must be why Fox News has been the most watched news channel for the last 12 years. It doubles the audience of both MSNBC, and CNN combined.

      • Ed

        Then explain why Fox News went to court to get the right to be able to lie to their viewers. And when they are not lying they’re spinning the truth to their mostly unintelligent viewers, who suck it all in like a vacuum.

    In a Gallup poll published in HuffPo, 28% of democrats said If given the opportunity to vote on a law legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states, they would vote no.To the same question, 41% of independent, and 56% of republicans also said no. I know LGBT’s who say they would vote no.

    Remember when you say Republicans hate homosexuals that:

      wow– that’s a lot of typing!!
      allow me to ask one which requires very little type:
      which party TODAY ( silly; aint it) today constantly says a resounding ( and religious) NO to gay marriage /equality??
      ———————————————————————————
      multiple choice answers provided–
      ———————————————————————————
      (A) the regressive tea party republicans
      (B) the “in power now” democrats
      (C) the ‘wish they had traction’ libertarian party
      (D) the whigs ( added for color)
      =================================================
      and your answer is?????

      • Ed

        No one, but an insignificant few really care what the Tea Party says about gay marriage. People are changing their minds on this issue and more are starting to support it. When the current older generation starts dying off, the younger generations are far more supportive and will vote in favor of equal rights for the LGBT community. It is only a matter of time.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        correct yet wrong answer—
        I NEVER hear anyone other than the white trash regressive scumbag religious ( see: “Christian”) tea party decry this

      • Russell Ash

        You must not have very many Latino or African American friends.

        lotsa Africans as I play basketball quite well and treat them all with respect and levity. Im the guy who passes and plays team D and doesn’t back down from anyone. latinos? I keep them at arms length- its not their fault ( fully) as their violent abusive regressive sub culture breeds trhe anger and idiocy they showcase- at least here in south florida
        wanna double down on my female friends??

      • Russell Ash

        A Pew Center study/poll within the last year compiled results from four surveys conducted over more than a year and found 48% of African-Americans do not support same-sex marriage, 93% of African-Americans vote democrat. Logic would dictate that some of that 93% voting democrat do not support same-sex marriage. The same study found 61 percent of Democrats support gay marriage. Does the other 39% hate LBGTs? My own mother, who voted for Kennedy and every democrat that ran for president is disgusted by the thought of same-sex, let alone same-sex marriage. Myself and many of my tea party friends could care less. 52% of Republican and Republican-leaning voters under 50 now support gay marriage, as do 81% of Republicans under 30.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        then WHY0WHY0WHY is it ONLY the repubs /tea party trash who get busted crying about this?????

    • icantbeliveyou

      I know that the issue of Gay anything was Lucy’s football for a long long time. I am pretty sure in the 90’s to the mid 00’s it was pretty much political suicide to actually put your money where your mouth was on the issue. I was on the steps of the Lansing capital when Jennifer Granholm said she was on our side. I was holding my partner’s (now of 15 years) hand at the time. But now who’s saying what about it ? now who’s DOING what about it ? If you don’t flow with the winds and stand with who is making the change your want (even if its baby steps) your part of the problem. If you don’t voice your outrage in every channel you can when someone isn’t holding to the commitments they made, your also part of the problem. Right now in Russia just this conversation would put us both in Prison !

    • Pipercat

      Love the Gallup poll you used to create this straw man. Oh, and kudos for citing a 90’s era law to bolster this fallacy.

      • Russell Ash

        That 90’s era law was just recently repealed by SCOTUS. My point is valid. They accusation was made that republicans hate homosexuals. I was pointing out the hypocrisy of that statement, when there are plenty of democrats who think homosexuality is abhorrent. And if those democrats who voted for DOMA did not hate the LGBT community, why is the same not allowed for republicans? I think the latest poll says that 48% of republicans do not care even the slightest about same-sex marriage. I know LBGT people who are not in favor of same-sex marriage. They said it would only lead to same-sex divorce.

      • Pipercat

        Your point is irrelevant and is an attempt to jack the thread away from the point of the article. You are applying the old marketing trick of FUD. Look it up. You cannot support, refute or deny anything regarding the featured player here so you apply the aforementioned FUD. These appeals to authority are fallacious and really pretty weak.

      • Russell Ash

        Mighty Tegu, You have a short memory. John Kerry, our current SecState, and former democrat presidential candidate urged action against Iraq before Bush was even president.

        “We urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq’s refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs.”
        Letter to President Clinton, signed by: John Kerry, 1998

        “I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
        ~ Sen. John F. Kerry 2002

        “Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation … And now he is miscalculating America’s response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real…”
        — Sen. John F. Kerry, 2003

        He is not alone, many democrats urged action or felt that Iraq had WMD’s two years before Bush was in office.

        “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.”
        ~Rep. Nancy Pelosi, 1998

        “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
        ~Al Gore, 2002

        “It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein wiill continue to increase his capability to wage biological and chemical warfare and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Should he succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security landscape of the Middle East which, as we know all too well, affects American security.”
        ~ Sen. Hillary Clinto, 2002 Former SecState

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        as we all know- when it happens upon a presidents “watch” it is his baby: dropping our (BS) rating from AAA is on obamas watch,,,,, 9/11 on bush watch,,,,, 23 million jobs created on Clintons watch,,,,, WTC FIRST bombing on Clintons watch,,,,, housing bubble on GWs watch.
        bottom line: removing Hussein opened door for iran to re emerge.
        nice move guys

      • Russell Ash

        Palin did step down. She quit because she was assaulted with 19 frivolous ethics complaints, filed by a few people whose agenda was to discredit her. Alaska’s transparency laws allow anyone to file Freedom of Information Act requests. This bogged down her administration in a bureaucratic quagmire, thanks to the need to comb through records and respond by a strict timetable. Similarly, ethics investigations are easily triggered and can drag on for months even if the initial complaint is flimsy. 150 FOIA requests had been filed and her office was targeted for investigation by everyone from the FBI to the Alaska legislature.

        Most centered on Palin’s use of government resources, and to date have turned up little save for a few state trips that she agreed to reimburse the state for because her children had accompanied her. (think how much that would cost Obama, if he did the same) In the process, though, she accumulated $500,000 in legal fees in just nine months, and knew the bill would grow.

        She was also assaulted endless personal attacks, including mean-spirited suggestions on liberal blogs that all of her children should have been aborted and that she would run on a presidential platform promoting retards. She stepped down from office because she was protecting her family, both financially, and against an onslaught of ignorance from liberal attacks on her children, Bill Maher, and others ripped her and her family. Let anyone even hint at insulting Michelle Obama, and those same liberals lose their minds.

      No matter what you say about Democrats being hypocrites………… it doesn’t even come close to what the GOP/Republicans have shown us about hypocrisy. Neither party is perfect, but I would be happy to call myself a current Democrat, than want my reputation to be ruined by having anyone think or say I was a current Republican. They are truly the party of hate, who say they are listening to what Americans really want………………………. what a joke……………..all they have been listening and catering to are their greedy, power hungry campaign donors, who don’t have a clue/nor do they care what the average American wants or needs. If you want to associate yourself with the party of hypocritical/bigoted/greedy/self-serving haters, go right ahead you blind fool!

      • Russell Ash

        Kenny is a perfect example of liberal tolerance.

        Do you really think your liberal democrat candidates really care about what you want? Do you really not think democrats are not listening and catering to are their greedy, power hungry campaign donors, who don’t have a clue/nor do they care what the average American wants or needs. There are more millionaire democrats in congress then there are republican democrats. Obama and Biden both are multi-millionaires.

        For 200 years the democrat part was the party of racism, sexism and bigotry. Liberals often forget that they were the authors of the anti-suffragette, Prohibition, the Palmer Raids, eugenics, loyalty oaths, Jim Crow laws, and, in its modern incarnation, what many call “state capitalism.” You hurl insults, but fail to show how the party, not individuals in it, is racist, bigoted and evil.

      • Pipercat

        Again, nice straw man that culminates with the, “state capitalism” reference. I guess that whole 1964 baton pass falls under your radar.

      • Ed

        LOL! Nice one, Pipercat.

      • Tami Stevens

        If the parties switched in 1964, and all the racist democrats switched to the republican party, why did they stay in office as democrats, and continue to get elected year after year as democrats, and for the most part, their constituents voted democrats to replace them, well into the 90’s?

      • Pipercat

        They were called the Dixiecrats, they were not known as racist Democrats. You just made that up. Moreover, Lyndon Johnson’s famous quip, “We lost the south for a generation” was off the mark by at least one or two generations.

      • Tami Stevens

        Are you saying the Dixiecrats were not racists?

        Can you name these Racist Democrats, um I meant to say Dixiecrats that converted to the republican party? Please. I would love to know who they were, so I can learn more about them. Go ahead, name them all please. I will wait.

        Lyndon Johnson’s other famous quip, “I’ll have those ni**ers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” was not way of mark.

      • Pipercat

        Wow, you are an Aggie. I really like how you are jacking the thread here. You are not arguing in support of the featured players, but are instead creating a bunch of false dilemmas on a mission to change the subject. I suppose when the featured player is this reprehensible, it’s all you have I reckon. Oh, if you go to graduate school, make sure it’s UT.

      • Tami Stevens

        Still waiting for how many of the 21 Dixiecrat senators left the Democrat party and became republicans? Ah hell I can’t wait. I will help you out.

        One. Strom Thurmond.

        The rest of the racist, segregations Dixiecrats were Democrats until the day they died.

        Do you know what the average length of time after the republicans helped pass 1964 Civil Rights Act, that the constituents of the Racist Dixiecrats actually put a republican in that office? 24 years. (that would be 1988). Senator Robert Byrd, a racist democrat, I mean a dixiecrats, left office in July of 2010. He never left the party. He was a life long democrat. His constituents have never voted for a republican.

        It was George Wallace, not George Bush, who stood in the doorway of the schools and tried to prevent the end of segregation. It was democrats who turned the hoses on civil rights protesters.

        The vast majority of republicans voted for the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. How would it make any sense at all for those racist to suddenly just decide to join the party that since the civil war been on the side that stood against racism? The party that pushed for the right for women’s suffrage, and then suffrage for all? The party that fought Jim Crow, and helped pass the law ending segregation, and made equal pay for equal work, regardless of sex, or race the law of the land? 85% of the elected republicans voted for the 1965 Voting Rights Act, while only 74% of the elected republicans did.

        I suggest reading “The Silent Majority”, by Mathew Lassiter.

        Also Google “Revealing the Truth about the Democratic Party Part 2”, and watch the video. Fact check it if you want, I did.

      • Pipercat

        I commented on your comments and that makes me all in on the irrelevancy? That must make your posts irrelevant?

      • Pipercat

        Precisely! My intent is to pull the thread back to the issue at hand which involves the race for Governor of the State of Texas in 2014. I laid a trap and you fell into it. Since you are recommending books, I would suggest you read, “The Art of War” attributed to Sun Tsu.

      • Tami Stevens

        Who cares about Wendy Davis? She won’t be the next governor of Texas. I read the article. Sounded more like the average liberal hypocrisy and whining about the republican party to me.

      • Pipercat

        Since I have a dog in this race, I care. I cannot understand why General Abbot feels he needs to pander to a solid constituency with the likes of Mr. Nugent; moreover, Mr. Nugent’s comments are now coming back to haunt General Abbot. This piece points out how problematic this kind of pandering can be. Now you have other Republican pols calling on Mr. Nugent to apologize for his, “subhuman mongrel” insult. Also, whining is bipartisan.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        shall we attempt some more contemporary history?

      • Tami Stevens

        I am responding to what was said in this part of the comments, not creating false dilemmas to change the subject. I did not bring up the 1964 baton passing, or the dixiecrats. You did.

        Of course I did, to lure you into my trap! Regardless, it’s still irrelevant to the author’s assertion and to contemporary politics.

        “In 1864, an amendment abolishing slavery passed the U.S. Senate but died in the House as Democrats rallied in the name of states’ rights.” Same argument republicans are making about federal marriage equality. Maybe both parties have changed over time ?

      • Russell Ash

        The democrats of that time believing it was the states right to decide if slavery should be legal is not the same as states wanting limited federal involvement today. Your comparing apples and pumpkins. You cannot compare the desire to own another human, raping, beating mutilating, and torturing them at your own discretion, to feeling marriage is between a man and woman.

        If your logic was sound, Hitler would be a democrat.
        “We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”

        Since the 1930s, the party has promoted a social liberal platform.[8][9][10] Until the late 20th century the party had a powerful conservative wing based in the rural South, which over time has greatly diminished. Today its Congressional caucus is composed mostly of progressives and centrists.[11]

        late 20th century , the libertar’s and the independent became more prominent . showing a paradox such as Texas with a strong liberal dem capitoll(Austin ) and a large hispanic population .Republican .This led to the 80’s with Ann Richards as Gov . which was a surprise then it when back to with the likes of Mark White and George Bush , and of course the present Gov Hairboy perry . his is what the senetors call him . I knoww i was the Lt Gov personnal Chef and was the CHef for the Senate .This was during the redistricting early 2003-4 which caused a national media frenzy.this was when the senate ran off to New Mexico . I use Texas for an Example because I lived in it . and it generally has the interesting political BS .T.Delay would stop in my kitchen to chat, I had Chrismas dinner well the day before with my Sous Chef and Mrs .Perry in the mansion.

  • radsenior

    Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin and Greg Abbott all close buddies of Rafael Eduardo Cruz who shut down the federal government. All are overtly spewing anything and everything Obama. Anti-Obama rhetoric used in any phrase when running for office in Texas or any other state is merely code for “anti-first-black-president!” “Anti-Obama” and “liberal” are included in most phrases to connect both to the other, but especially “anti-first-black-president!”

    • Russell Ash

    Values? Hah. She has a daughter who got knocked up out of wedlock, and now preaches abstinence? Nugent is a perfect fit for her. He is a hypocrite too. Pees his pants to get out of the draft then wraps himself in the flag. Hypocrites should hand out together.

    Is anyone really surprised that Sarah Palin is a Ted Nugent fan? I know I’m not. And as for Martin Bashir, I watched the video and he did not imply that someone should defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth. What he actually said is perhaps if she had had to endure what the slaves had to endure (including defecation in their mouths) she wouldn’t be spouting out the ignorance she spouts out. Someone needs to call out these ignorant right-wing freaks on the bullshit they spout out and I believe Martin Bashir did just that. As for Ted Nugent, I hope more conservatives campaign with him, it’ll be fun to watch.

  • faceshaker

    Will Nuge do the stooge? Or will the stooge do the Nuge? Questions, questions, so interesting to see people say godawful things about others and then pat one another on their heads about what great Christians they are.

    This is all militancy gone out-of-control. If Palin cannot see the need to set a loose cannon back in its place and chain it to the deck, she is not being a Christian at all–but merely slumming.

  • TommyPain

    What strikes me most is the absolute hypocrisy of those on the right who support the likes of Ted Nugent. Nugent may have had a one hitter (no pun intended) back in the ’60’s , it wasn’t until the mid 1970’s did he become a popular act to the masses, of course he kept his politics out of the arena back then since no doubt if he had many of those “drug crazed” folks he like to call “sub-human punks” would have pulled his sorry “loin cloth” punk ass of the stage and beat him senseless. But we are living in the 21st century and to think there are many so called “god fearing” conservatives who look at the Nuge as some kind of folk hero make these idiot folk not only fools but religious hypocrites. The Nuge has long been the poster boy for pedophilia (sex with underage girls), lack of respect for anything he can shoot and his constant non-Christian like jabs at anyone who doesn’t agree with him, even going further in his total lack of any reasonable respect for the office of President. Those Christian folk of the greatest generation would have thought this 21st century neo-group had sold their very souls by defending Ted “freeking” Nugent. Nugent’s smug comment of parents thinking it “better that it be Ted” then some High School student screwing their daughters is a disgrace to them and I think is safe to say most of those Fathers would taken a baseball bat to this sad example of a human being.

    The thing that Sarah likes about Ted is that he would never have sex with her daughters…because they are too old.

    I must ask again; Where is the righteous indignation toward rap star’s lyrics? The left can’t love those stars enough. How many prominent democrats draft-dodged? MANY including your precious bill clinton (who also has some sexual urges that drove him beyond what others would consider moral).

    And what is moral anyway? Many states in the 70s and 80s had laws allowing consensual sex at younger ages. And the Islamic nations you and your leader love so much force marriages and sex on girls as young as 8!

    You’re hypocrites the lot of you! And you wonder why we want to home school or put our kids in private school? You wouldn’t know morals if they crossed the border and registered as democrats!

  • musikfanat22

    She wants everyone to forget that she was sleeping with black men in college, so, she’ll join an avowed racist to deflect from that. Just my take on her and Nugent. I could be wrong, but, you know….

  • Andy Kane

    Ted Nugent, resident sicko for the TeaBaggers, NRA, and pedophilia! Not to mention this jackass who couldn’t answer his country’s call during the draft, and Viet Nam era, and possibly pick up a weapon for his country, but now he wants everyone in the country to believe he is the biggest proponent of their second amendment rights! So, a failed Tea Party presidential candidate poses with a child molesting, draft dodging, NRA whacko, and this surprises anyone how? These types of people just naturally gravitate towards each other, can’t help it. They find in each other an outlet for expressing their hatred and bigotry towards the President, and just about anyone who stands up for the president or from the same party. I’d be willing to bet that if someone had made similar remarks against good ol’ Dubya, as he has against President Obama, we’d have heard on the news about him organizing a lynch party. But for him to disrespect the person voted into the highest office in the land by a MAJORITY, of the citizens of this country he isn’t just making those remarks against the President as one man, but the majority of his fellow citizens as well. But, these people are like plow horses, constantly wearing blinders so they aren’t easily distracted by little things like, oh I don’t know, FACTS? This guy is an irrelevant piece of garbage, and a waste by product of society, and should be treated as such.
