Ted Nugent Joins the Worldnutdaily

In retrospect, this seems kind of inevitable, a marriage made in wingnut heaven. Ted Nugent is joining the Worldnutdaily’s growing list of has-been celebrity halfwit commentators, which already includes Chuck Norris, Victoria Jackson, Pat Boone and John Rocker. And Joseph Farah is pleased as he could be:

“Ted Nugent rocks,” said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND. “And I don’t mean just as a music star. He rocks as an outspoken entertainer who is so politically incorrect. We’re honored that he would choose WND to sound off about what’s on his mind every week.”

Did you catch that? He rocks because he’s “so politically incorrect.” Not because he’s intelligent or thoughtful or careful to support all of his positions rationally. Just because he’s “politically incorrect.” That is the only thing Farah cares about, not accuracy or intellect. And one wonders how Farah squares his pro-military stance with the fact that Nugent shit his pants to get out of joining the military and called soldiers a bunch of idiots. Or how he squares his constant moral crusade with the fact that Nugent became the legal guardian of an underage girl so he could keep having sex with her.

Oh, who am I kidding? He doesn’t square those things because he doesn’t care. All he cares about, as he made clear, is that Ted is “politically incorrect.”

    I trust that this will be a short lived marriage as Ted should be dead or jailed soon.

    he’s “politically incorrect.”

    That quote is one adverb too long.

    I heard that Ted and Pat are going to get together and put out a compilation album of their greatest hits. The only problem is that they are undecided whether to call it: “Junk in the Box (squared)” or “Pantload X 2.”

    As we all know, “politically incorrect” automatically and in all circumstances means smart and accurate, always. [/snark]

    Meanwhile, in the real world, some things are politically incorrect precisely because they’re morally reprehensible, stupid, ineffective, short-sighted, and so forth. Political correctness or incorrectness isn’t a useful criteria for evaluating the merit of a statement.

    While I’m sure you could find something labelled politically correct I would disagree with people who brag about being politically incorrect always seem to mean “I am so brave insulting people who can’t get me back”.

    The WND got Nugent so they will have an exclusive when Ted is killed or jailed in April.

    I notice Hal “The Late Great Planet Earth” Lindsey is still on their list of “other commentators.” They never learn anything, do they?

    Calling those people “loonies” is an insult to the Moon.

    All he cares about, as he made clear, is that Ted is “politically incorrect.”

    I.e.: he’s correct, because he’s incorrect.

    He’s so wrong, it makes him right!

    Exactly. You can offend people with uncomfortable truths– you can also offend them with ignorance, bigotry, and general assholery. The people pushing the latter can be counted on to mistake it for the former.

    Finally, the WND has bagged an actual journalist!*
     
    * Upcoming ledes: “How we doin’ tonight?!”, “Rock-n-roll!”, “[guitar lick]“, “Cincinnati audiences are the best audiences!”, and, of course, the Pulitzer prize winning “Woo!”

    Talk about errant presuppositionalism!

    “And one wonders how Farah squares his pro-military stance with the fact that Nugent shit his pants to get out of joining the military and called soldiers a bunch of idiots. ”

    This one is actually easy. Farah isn’t pro-military. He’s pro-war, so long as his own ass is never on the line. Actually serving is for suckers.

    I once slept through a Ted Nugent concert. Just a lot of repetitive noodling up and down the scales at stupidly high volume. Can’t imagine his “journalism” will be much different.

    Did you ever notice that the only reason some right wingers hate “political correctness” because it means that they can’t say the word “Nigger” without being treated like a racist?

    I try to be a nice person, I really do. But i hope this scumbag drops dead.

    Not that there was doubt in any of our minds that WND is facinorous. This move only confirms. I, jokingly, wait for Farah and Nugent to disagree and start to verbally rip each other apart. Ted’s emotional outbursts don’t do much for his credibility as a reasonable person, among other things. Not that it matters to the average reader of WND.

    “Just a lot of repetitive noodling up and down the scales at stupidly high volume. Can’t imagine his “journalism” will be much different.”

    Actually, Ted’s journalism teachers said pretty much the same thing about hoping that Ted would not take up music, after reading some of his early rants. True story*!

    “WND – aka Fox News minor leagues.”

    Oh, yeah. I’m seeing a movie coming out of this. It’s about a bunch of inkstained wretches on the way up, down or out and the hilarity that ensues in the “newsroom”. We’ll call it “Bullshit Durham”.

    * It has to be true, I wrote it on the intertooobz.

    Through all the Ted Nugent tomfoolery I still like the dumbshit’s music. How could that be? Must dig Great White Buffalo out of ears…
