Dee Snider, the lead singer of Twisted Sister, took a shot at our favorite lunatic rockstar, Ted Nugent, pointing out that despite his hyper-nationalist bullshit and macho blathering, he actually dodged the draft during the Vietnam War by crapping his pants.
“Ted’s always been a gun-toting conservative. But what gets me is that he was actually a draft dodger! I mean, to the point where he didn’t bathe for a week, and vomited on himself to deliberately avoid the draft. I totally understand why he did that, but all of these Republicans who love Ted don’t seem to know or remember that too well. It’s crazy that he’s become one of the voices of Conservative America even though he was a draft dodger. If you don’t believe me, Google it.”
Nugent fired back on Twitter:
Shame on @deesnider for falling for the big lie I challenge u to man up to the truth We xpected btr

Yeah, he fell for the “lie” you told, which you later claimed wasn’t true. But since your claim that you were lying is an admission to being a liar, why should anyone believe the second claim rather than the first? If someone reveals something that makes them look bad rather than good, it’s pretty likely to be true, and the later attempt to say you didn’t mean it is much more likely to be the lie. Were you lying too when you demeaned the soldiers you now claim to think so highly of?
