Ted Nugent, promoting "American values" talks about KILLING Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama...
Ted Nugent: "Hillary, you might want to ride one of these (machine guns) into the sunset, you worthless bitch." STUPID, COWERING Democrat "leaders" have NO RESPONSE, NO PUSHBACK, NO OUTRAGE to such blatantly hate-mongering comments by a noted REPUBLICAN PARTY and NRA SPOKESMAN.
The damn Democratic "leadership" STILL has no reliable media stream to COUNTER the DISGUSTING Right-Wing attack politics, of which Ted Nugent talking about using a MACHINE GUN on Hillary Clinton and/or Barak Obama is only the latest example.
Democratic "leaders" like Senator Biden, Senator Durbin, Senator Leahy, Senator Kerry, and others always manage to NOT NOTICE as Right-Wing Republican Party SPOKESMEN make horrendous comments (or, in this case, threats) against Democrats. Just the other day, Senator Leahy praised Seantor Lieberman, who is only one-half step away from Republican 2004 convention keynote speaker Zell Miller who shouted during that keynote Republican speech that "Democrats want to arm the troops with spitballs!"
The fact that Zell Miller had been a former DEMOCRATIC governor only proves the DEMOCRATIC TENDENCY to BETRAY Democratic voters and American citizens who depend on an HONEST, AGGRESSIVE, and VOCAL _OPPOSITION PARTY._
Earlier this week, Senator Dick Durbin said he considered Republican death-squads advocate JOHN BOLTON to be a "close friend and an honorable man" - despite Bolton's frequent characterizations of Democrats as godless appeasers if not cowards, and Bolton's recurrent insistence that the United States should immediately bomb Iran (without UN approval, a declaration of war, or any formalities of international statesmanship.)
AS LONG AS THEY CAN STAY OUT OF THE LINE OF FIRE, established, Senior Democratic leaders PRETEND NOT TO NOTICE the GROSS OUTRAGES and ABUSES of the Republican Party and its atrocious spokespersons.
Even when former Vietnam DRAFT EVADER Ted Nugent makes BLUNT THREATS to the safety of two of this year's top Democratic presidential candidates.
FOR SHAME, DEMOCRATS! You have SURRENDERED the HIGH GROUND in the "moral values" battle to those whose hypocrisy is glaring and obvious to the whole world!
Facing a draft, Nugent bravely wet his pants
Rocker Ted Nugent is all talk as he calls Obama, Hillary vile names
BY RICHARD ROEPER Sun-Times Columnist

So Ted Nugent roams a concert stage while toting automatic weapons, calls Barack Obama "a piece of -----" and says he told Obama to suck on one of his machine-guns. He also calls Hillary Clinton a "worthless bitch" and Dianne Feinstein a "worthless whore."
That Nugent, he's a man's man. He talks the talk and walks the walk, right?
Except when it was time to register for the draft during the Vietnam era. By his own admission, Nugent stopped all forms of personal hygiene for a month and showed up for his draft board physical in pants caked with his own urine and feces, winning a deferment. Creative!
Ah, but that was a long time ago. Nugent isn't just a washed-up rocker -- he's a right-wing madman who's not afraid to call out some of the leading Democrats in language so vile it makes the Dixie Chick Natalie Maines' comments about President Bush sound like a love poem.
You'd think even someone such as Sean Hannity would dismiss Nugent as a macho clown, desperate for attention.
In a discussion on his show last week, Hannity refused to condemn Nugent's remarks, saying, "I like Ted Nugent . . . he's a friend of mine," and even laughing loudly as Alan Colmes read the transcript of some of Nugent's remarks.
Funny. I don't remember Hannity being so cavalier about the Dixie Chicks went they criticized Bush.
Not that he's operating under a double standard or anything.
A different kind of high school text
If you're the parent of a junior high or high school student and your kid has a cell phone, odds are you can tell some version of this story.
Your child reaches a certain birthday, and you agree it's time for the kid to have that cell phone she's been asking for since she was about 4.
When she opens the present, she tells you how much she loves you.
As soon as the phone is activated, she disappears into a world of frantic text-messaging with her friends. When they call the house, she says, "Text me!" and hangs up immediately -- because today's kids are much more comfortable texting or instant messaging than talking on the phone, let alone interacting in person.
A month goes by. The first bill arrives at the house. It's thicker than an issue of Vanity Fair.
Somehow, your child has managed to rack up thousands of text messages.
Next comes the sitdown with the child, in which you attempt to put limits on the number of calls (and especially the number of text messages) per month.
Either the child adheres to the new rules -- OK, stop laughing -- or you get another statement listing thousands of text messages and calls. (Teenagers have a unique ability to operate in a state of denial. They KNOW that bill will arrive, but they'll worry about it later.)
Texting one two three
At that point, the parent takes away the cell phone, and the child tells the parents they are the worst parents in the history of parenting.
I have heard amazing stories about teenagers and text messaging. Stories of kids who rack up 7,000 messages in a single month. Stories of high school students visiting college campuses -- and never looking up during the visit because they're too busy texting. Stories of kids attending baseball games, weddings, birthday parties, etc., and spending the entire event hunched over the communications device, firing away message after message after message.
According to Guinness, the world record for most text messages in a single month is a ridiculous 182,689, held by one Deepak Sharma, a teenager from Ludhiana, India. That's a new SMS message every 14 seconds, which seems impossible, but there you have it.
I'm sure it hasn't gotten that crazy in your house. But I would like to hear your horror tales of teen texting gone mad.
If you're a teenager (or a twentysomething) and you were/are addicted to texting, I'd like to hear your all-time record for most messages logged in a month.
If you're the parent of such a child, I'd like to hear from you as well. I'll publish some of the stories in a future column -- but I won't embarrass anyone, and I'll protect your identity, if you so desire.
Probably the best way to reach me is via text message -- kidding. You know how to get in touch with me.
