First Governor Bush, then Arnold, now, OMG, Nugent for Governor?

I guess it's not surprising that the President admires this guy.

During the private inaugural party at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, in 2000, President George W Bush glanced across the room and recognised a man who - by his own account - has urinated on a nun, soiled his trousers for a week in order to avoid the draft, and been detained on a charge of indecent exposure, after experiencing difficulties with his loincloth in Little Rock, Arkansas. The President confronted him as a matter of urgency.

"When he noticed me," Ted Nugent recalls, "he was surrounded by these huge bankrollers from his campaign. He literally swept past all of them and said: 'Laura! Look who's here! It's Ted!' Then he hugged me and took me by the shoulders. He said: 'Just keep doing what you're doing. Don't think that we don't know what you're up to out here. Stay on course. You're doing great.'"

His thoughtful solution to the Iraq "problem" -- lob a few nukes their way. As Nugent so charmingly put it, "Our failure . . . .has been not to Nagasaki them." There's a lot more and, depending on your mood, it is funny or really, really sad. Oh, yeah, and he announced that he's running for Governor of Michigan. h/t to Jesus' General, with a treatment of this weird interview that is just priceless, go read it here.
