  • I pledge allegiance, to Ted Nugent:
    “A Ted Nugent campaign (for Michigan governor) would certainly be a treat for voters if his extravagant rock shows are any guide to how he would conduct his rallies. At his concert Monday night in Waco, Texas, he instructed U.S. military personnel in the audience to challenge anyone who didn’t say the Pledge of Allegiance. ‘If they ain’t saying anything, just go ahead and knock ‘em down. You may resuscitate them immediately,’ Mr. Nugent told a laughing crowd.”
    --thanks Ted Nugent, via Richard Nixon of The Wide Awakes!
