TBogg has a hilarious column about Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott using Ted Nugent as a campaign prop despite his long history of saying violent, bigoted and appalling things, not to mention his love of “jailbait” and penchant for shitting his pants to avoid the draft.
A member of the brain trust that is running Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s gubernatorial campaign thought it would be a cool beans idea to invite the former Damn Yankees gee-tar picker to campaign for the governor because, obviously, Abbott needed to shore up his rightward flank lest the if-it-moves-shoot-it, if-it’s-young-hump-it, racist, homophobic, mens rights lunatic base suddenly go wobbly at the first glance of Wendy Davis’ pink shoes…
The Abbott campaign has been spent this not-over-yet week fending off questions about the Nuge’s hankering for the young ladies and his regurgitation of hip-hop happenin’ Nazi punchlines, and not whatever the hell Abbott is running on, We assume getting ‘gubmint’ out of peoples lives and back into ‘wimmen-folks’ uteruses where it belongs. Also, probably something about the Alamo.Boss move, you guys. Someone deserves a raise and a yee-haw.
Now we’ve got Wendy Davis fund-raising on Ted Nugent’s camo-clad back, reminding women that he likes to refer to women in office as “varmints,” “fat pigs” and “dirty whores.”
You’ve got Ted, his own bad self, faking illness and running away from Erin Burnett (“Burnett revealed that Nugent had canceled the interview two hours before it was scheduled to air, citing illness.”) like she was the draft board.
To be fair, he was probably running away from Erin Burnett because she’s too old for him, being an adult and all.
