    The washed-up rocker and Romney endorser said he'll be in jail or dead if the president is reelected. Someone should tell the cowardly pedophile that soiling his panties is neither illegal nor fatal

    They are if they're filling the role of the promoter. No matter who the promoter is, I can't picture a performer of Nugent's level accepting the show if his money isn't guaranteed.

    My question is why did they invite them in the first place? I mean his persona really hasn't changed that much.
    If it sounds like Marx and acts like Stalin...it must be Obama

    Fight to the death? Nugent? Fight to the death?

    Is this the guy that fought to the death to get into the military when he had the chance?

    This is rich!

    well, if fight to death would mean locking up the enemy in an enclosed area from which they could not escape, with little or no way to defend themselves and then go after them with far superior weaponry, like a canned armed assault aka high fence armed assault, then yes, Ted Nugent would join that fight.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Of course he didn't.

    His rights are being abused, just like Juan Williams' right were abused when he was fired from NPR.
    His rights are not being abused. He lost half of his audience when he went political. Entertainers should entertain. Using your entertainer fame as a soapbox to influence politics isn't very smart. Ask Natalie Maines.

    Nugent certainly has the right to engage in political speech. And I would defend that right. All entertainers have that right regardless if they be on the right or left.

    I do not like the political or racial views of Mel Gibson but I feel he makes very good films and look forward to each of them. I am no fan of Kelsey Grammer's politics but love his FRASER show and have watched his BOSS TV series. Angie Harmon is somebody I do not look to for political advice but she is my all time favorite second chair on the Law & Order series. Everything about John Wayne's politics is the opposite of mine - but I love many of his films. The same with Clint Eastwood.

    What Nugent does is take right wing politics and amplifies it through rude, crude and lewd behavior. He is simply a buttwipe of the worst sort.

    I am going to partially disagree here. As I posted earlier, had Nugent not re-invigorated himself with his political rhetoric, he'd be long-forgotten by all, even those on the right, such as myself. He now occupies a unigue niche of once-rockers who bash liberalism, who also speaks somewhat coherently.

    With such as Natalie, they were at the top of their musical popularity when she decided to piss-off half of her followers. That was a far bigger number of music fans lost than political fans gained. With Nugent, the numbers are reversed. He had virtually no music fans to lose, and is now known, and on TV and radio, because of his politics.

    But otherwise, I do agree. Just because someone is a successful actor or entertainer does not make them any more astute politically. And as I noted earlier as well, while I can appreciate Nugent's outspokenness simply because I agree with it, his draft-dodging record will always taint him in my eyes, and I believe the eyes of many vets.

    I got to where I can't even watch Bill Maher anymore. I used to like him. Even though he is usually spot on with his arrogant cynical approach to reality, he still makes me wanna puke. I would tell Bill Maher to get out of politics and go back to comedy but he isn't even that funny anymore.
