Ted-NugentWell, that’s truly reassuring:

“I worked close with Scott Walker’s team in Wisconsin when he took it away from the hippies and got rid of the debt and got some freedom back in Wisconsin,” Nugent said.

Pretty impressive.

But Walker staffers said this week that Nugent’s statement simply isn’t true.

The Motor City Madman doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

The NRA held its national convention here in 2006, and Nugent — best known for such hits at “Cat Scratch Fever” and “Dog Eat Dog” — performed the national anthem on his guitar, as Walker recalled in this interview.
