When faced with difficult issues of crippling unemployment, long-term deficits and unabated climate change, America turns to the man whose main contribution to our culture are the lyrics, "A shakin' my thang as a rang-a-dang-dang in the bell/Down on the street you know she can't be beat/She's so sweet when she yanks on my meat." So say we all, Nuge, so say we all.
This time, Nugent's opporuntity to enlighten us with his careful political analysis came during interview with the Broward-Palm Beach New Times, when he was asked what rock bands would represent Barack Obama and Mitt Romney…
"Out and out politicians are anathema to rock-n-roll, so I hesitate to attempt to connect the two. But on important issues, I am saddened to admit that Obama represents everything bad about humanity and Romney pretty much all that is good. It is really that stark."
At least the battle between good and evil is one war Nugent won't be dodging.
And he finds himself in good company, joining Romney backers Jenna Jameson, Donald Trump and Kid Rock, all known as Republican values voters, in the sense that their endorsement comes with a value pack of penicillin.
