nugent4John Amato of Crooks and Liars puts it all in perspective:

Ted Nugent’s form of crazy is very, very scary, to say the least. His vitriolic rhetoric most definitely helped land him on the board of the NRA and a gig on the Outdoor Channel, but that doesn’t excuse his actions. Many conservatives cry out loud when somebody on MSNBC says something very inappropriate, but in conservative politics, Ted Nugent’s disgusting descriptions are par for the course.

In this interview for Pennlive, he called Obama a racist, liberal Democrat for destroying Detroit on purpose and described Democrats in government as cockroaches.

He was as vicious as I’ve ever seen him.

During the course of the rant, Nugent talks about his “very special music.” Now, while I do ¬†remember a time when they called developmentally delayed kids “special,” I’m not going to make a politically incorrect joke about Nugent’s specific musical¬†oeuvre, because it’s only OK to make those kind of jokes if you’re a conservative.
