NRA's Ted Nugent Says Sarah Palin Is Founding Fathers' Ideal
February 7, 2015

Based on what I've read from our country's founders, I'm guessing Sarah Palin's particular brand of stupidity mixed with political bitchery would confound and horrify them. But if you're Ted Nugent, you live in a weird space where she represents their ideals.

Right Wing Watch:

“She is my hero,” Nugent said of the former half-term Alaska governor. “Sarah Palin is the perfect example of what our Founding Fathers envisioned for an experiment in self-government.”

Oh yes, sure she is. More like the perfect example of what the Nuge envisions for...never mind.

Nugent was especially impressed by Palin’s decision to resign midway through her first term as governor: “She quit because the left hate machine was so overwhelming her with frivolous litigation that she did the most courageous thing in the world and she handed her governor duties to the lieutenant governor while she was taking on this hate onslaught of the left so that Alaska would be properly served by someone who could pay attention to the responsibilities of the office of government while she was fighting off the leftist mongrels. She’s my hero.”

He really likes that term "mongrel," doesn't he? RAWR. We're all dawgs over here on the left, I guess.

But wait! There's more:

After plugging Palin’s new TV show, Nugent gushed that she is “an amazing American and she brings forth so much good that the general media would not bring forth, she’s a reminder that the heart and soul of working-hard, playing-hard, being-the-best-that-you-can-be America is alive and well.”

If that's the best we can be, it's time to strike up a dirge for America and find a nice place to repatriate.

Does he have the hots for her or is he just an idiot? Maybe both. Here's the audio:
