From the Christian Science Monitor, man's man Nugent pistol-whips beta-male Damon and the empty-headed Hollywood echo-chamber:
Anyone who has watched Ted Nugent appear on talk shows over the years knows he can deliver a punch when he deems it necessary. In an email exchange The Vote had with Nugent this morning, the rock star starts off diplomatic.
“To be concerned is prudent, but his references are without merit,” Nugent wrote. “Her record in politics proves she is a tough woman of intellect, logic, common sense, integrity and defying courage. Theoretically, Matt’s concerns would better be aimed at and earned by Barack Obama.”
Nugent had high praise for the Republican vice presidential nominee, who - like Nugent - is an avid hunter.
“I like her a lot,” he said. “I have examined her record and she is my kind of elected official. She may very well be the best Republican in America today.”
Nugent, an outspoken conservative, is a minority in the entertainment community. When asked why the celebrity crowd seems to better connect with the Democratic party, Nugent becomes the Nugent you know on TV — unfiltered.
“With all due respect, many in the entertainment industry are deep into mind-altering substance abuse, and when one’s logic and intellectual calculating powers are replaced with dopey feel-good, fantasy- driven denial, the democratic party serves them well,” Nugent blasted.
Meanwhile, on the stump near Youngstown Ohio today, John McCain helpfully informed the blue-collar crowd of this evening's $28,500 per head Streisand soiree in honor of Barack Obama, champion of the hardworking American:
"He talks about siding with the people just before he flew off for a fundraiser in Hollywood with Barbra Streisand," McCain said of his rival. "Let me tell you, my friends, there's no place I'd rather be than right here with the working men and women of Ohio."McCain used the line as his close at an airport hangar rally, drawing loud applause.
I think he's being too hard on Obama. After all, nothing says, "It's about you," to the American people quite like an evening spent kissing up to grossly overpaid and woefully out-of-touch limosine liberals. And with blue states quickly transforming into purple, the nip-and-tuck crowd is his only hope, so to speak -- unless of course he chooses to go testicle lockbox with the Clintons.
But even if he were to pull an "Eagleton," something tells me Hill would cackle loudly in his face and unequivocally reject the VP offer, thus jettisoning The One from his vaulted nutroots pedastal, right back into obscurity. Dingy Harry probably wouldn't even mind, since his grubby little hand was so rudely slapped away by Berlin's favorite candidate this morning. Guess the only redistribution of wealth that interests Mr. Obama is the kind that comes from diligent, responsible taxpayers. When it comes to his own fortunes, it's definitely a party of one.
UPDATE: Just for Fun!
