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.
