Turns out the Rickster made an interesting choice for entertainment at his inaugural ball - a Confederate shirt-wearin' Ted Nugent. Per the Houston Chronicle:
Rocking the house as the night's final act was singer Ted Nugent, a friend of Perry's known as the "Motor City Madman." Nugent appeared onstage wearing a cut-off T-shirt emblazoned with the sure-to-draw-headlines Confederate flag and shouting some unflattering remarks about non-English speakers, according to people who were in attendance. His props were machine guns.Anyone that was there and can tell us what he said, post in the comments.
Perry's handlers can brush it off all they want, but this type of shit certainly doesn't help his chances at the goal that's getting his silk boxers all in a bunch. Most presidential candidates, one would assume, don't want a running mate that allows their entertainment to spout off about for'ners while draped in a symbol that many in the country view as a sign of hatred. Yeah, we all know the arguments about "heritage" and "state pride," but a good portion of the country doesn't buy that shit, and the fact that we're even discussing it is the problem in and of itself.
So attawaytogo to whoever in Perry's camp booked Nugent. Personally, I would have gone with someone a little less controversial, like David Allan Coe or GG Allin's zombie.
Rick Perry and Ted Nugent together. A fine description of the Texas Republican Party.
Pass the popcorn.
I've got a question. Who in the hell dresses our Governor? Every photo I see of him it looks like it's picture day for the Special Needs class.
I am sure that Nugent said something like, "If you don't speak English - get the hell outta our country." That's what he said when he opened for a KISS concert I attended. Too bad there were bunches of people up from Mexico to see KISS and Teddy had to leave by police escort with extra security.
At least it saves us from the increased hatred that would follow after sending a second douchebag governor to DC.
True, but that means we're stuck with him. I guess we're taking one for the [American] team.
I was there. Right on the edge of the stage. The crowd that was left loved him. It was loud and great rock. I'm just a middle aged female who loves great music. So don't be so sensitive and lighten up. If everyone was the same in the world, we'd be so bored. The whole evening was about entertainment. You guys need to smile more.
The whole evening was about entertainment? Boy, you sure were out to lunch on that one, on the right.
Ted Nugent hasn't been "entertaining" since the late 70's. Coincendentally thats when I was last a teenager.
OTR- you should have your hearing checked.
Anon- speaking from experience. By the way, I've been looking for those straight staffers. Still none...
McTool, I gurantee YOU aren't looking for straight staffers.
anon- sure I have. I want to know which ones are just going to be too much trouble
Isn't that why you always carry a pocket full of roofies?
Girl, you're confusing me with your dad.
Wow, I expected better, are you and TGOSH collaborating on come backs? sad.
Awe... well, disappointment is, I'm sure a massive part of your life. I'm sure it's part of the lives of each and every one of your past boyfriends.
I know it's supposed to be an insult, but every time I read "McTool" I crack up... Would that be a McTool with cheese?
Indeed, fumunda cheese, produced by a GOP staffer no doubt.
an insult? I thought it was anon's way of referencing my giant cock.
Just because you have a "giant cock" stuck in your mouth, it doesn't make it yours.
No, I wasn't referring to THAT one, you 'tard. He left this morning.
JW - anon's just feeling deprived because no one wants to have sex with him. It's because he looks like Ed Asner.
The only "trollin' for colon" going on around here is by McTool looking for staffers.
"Don't be so sensitive and lighten up."
That, I believe, is the preamble to all sorts of conservative entertainment events-- like Kristallnacht, or your average negro lynching.
T.P. Are you kidding me with your overly-liberal mentality!?! Take your prius and park it on the street near your apartment somewhere near Hyde park or whatever other hippy neighborhood that you must live in. Why would someone like you even show up at the ball? I'd like to pull up next to you in my 3/4 ton Chevy with a 4" lift kit and rev my engine until I run out of gas and then fill up and do it again.
I read once, in a book called How to Talk to a Liberal( if you must), about people like you. Eat organic. Save the trees. Swirve to miss the squirrel. Don't fish the waters. Don't hunt the rats with horns(DEER.) Eat vegan. Please use your blinker. People like you give Austin the stigmatism of being the liberal pocket of the Republican State and it sickens me!
I'd love to see how someone like yourself would fare in Dallas or Houston for any period of time. I would tickle me like hanging a hamster from a ceiling fan on high!
T.P., kill a rabbit. They make my dogs bark!
hey furthest to the right. Your post is parody, right? You can't possibly be that stupid, can you? oh wait, you're in Texas. That answers that. I grew up in texas (i'm a 7th generation), and couldn't wait to get the hell away from all the red-necked pea brained knuckle draggers. I only hope that you're infertile.
I went to high school with fools like FTTR!. From what I hear, they still haven't evolved. Figures.
hey you, "looking for ass hair behind the gray bars"....seems like your liberal minded ways of thinking have affected your entire life! You moved away from God's country. We're glad to see you go. For that matter, we wish your family would've checked out about four or five generations ago! Go save a whale or something you tree-hugger!
ps. The Bush's are much like the Kennedy's in the sense that they will always be around. Sucks for you quitter!
Hey Noonie, your Mom just called.....posted-poned her nooner with me until dinner time!
Mind your own business idiot.
"Searching for jail house pubes" can defend his own statements!
What's the matter?? The tofu's got your tongues granola lovers!?!?
fttr, you're the poster child of inbred losers. I'm sure you live in some dreary tract house, watching nascar and wrestling, eatinc cheetos and pork rinds, your fat pimply ass spreading out on your stained lazyboy recliner. you and your boy bush probably have about the same IQ's, somewhere in the mid double didgits. i knew plenty of people like you in fort worthless. that's why i left. and since you're not a 'quitter', why isn't your fat, pimply-assed self over in iraq?
Just got back from my second tour PANSY!!!
3rd Bat 4th Marine Reg. Second tour completed in 40 months PUNK!!!(KM-4 Sniper with three confirmed headshots and dozens of confirmed kills!!) Are you still feeling like a dumbass??? I bet!!
Now, what's your Pansy ass doing for our country you damn treasonist quitter?!?
Also, I live with my beautiful wife in a 4100 sq ft home in a gated community with dozens of other Republicans who use the Trickle Down effect to piss on the heads of losers like you!
My IQ is 147, as if an IQ test was really a good measure of brilliance and I graduated with Honors from NTS.
You moved away from Ft Worth, because you don't have the round ones, not because Texas is a bad place to live. How else can you explain it to be the most desired state to live in in the lower 48??
What's the matter? Your family couldn't survive the Petroleum bottom-out or do you just not have the guts to stay in the pocket and hold your own in God's country?!? Talk to me when you've accomplished half of what I have in my first thirty years.
..and good luck with "Bubba" and the pube search in the gray bar hotel you PANSY!!!
hey fttr. you're full of shit.marine, my ass. i know lots of marines, and they pretty much ALL HATE BUSH. secondly, you live in a gated community? wow. that must be fun. being surrounded by cretins just like yourself. where do i sign up? i live between NYC & LA. i hang out with other creative, intelligent, cool people who travel frequently, have interesting things to say, can add insight to conversations. i'm sure you'd know several of them by name. and as for being in oil rich 'god's country'. my family has been in the energy extraction business for ever. not my idea of a fulfilling life. hanging out at country clubs, being around other fat-assed white republicans, talking about the same shit year after year. no thanks. i prefer to associate with people who are trying to make the world a better place through art, music, film, literature, good deeds, not through bombs and trucks, you unenlightened colostomy bag. have a great life in your gated prison community!
FTTR! at January 22, 2007 04:51 PM
Lying, knuckedragging, closeted drag queen.
my thoughts exactly. fttr is a fat, lonely twenty-something loser, living in his mother's basement jerking off all day long to gay porn, wishing he could hook up with a real man.
Hairy bush, first I am a Marine and if you know some, they've converted from Marines to libertarian sell outs. Every marine that I know and I have been inservice for 71/2 years, would love to fight just to fight! Furthermore, Do you like spending time with artists,musicians, literary brainiacs, yoga masters, and vegans.....because you're queer? ...or just unaccepted by the leaders of our society?
....and dirty fucking hippie, take a fucking shower and wash your attitude while doing so. ...chiming in like some Libertarian martyr or someshit....EAT ME!
Only stating this because it's offensive to your Mother "bushman," but you should move out of her basement and get a job.
....yes the CC Republicans that you can't stand will always control any and every aspect of your life and what you do....It's called Trickle Down and someday you'll have to come to terms with that!
hey fttr. yeah, i like spending time with people who can actually have interesting, intelligent conversations. trust me, you would be totally out of your league. so stay there in your sour, bland little bubble. it's where you belong.
I'm amazed that anyone who's actually seen active duty in Iraq doesn't have PTSD and brags about "headshots". What sort of worthless shithead goes on and brags about killing other people? I keep hearing about how reticent "the greatest generation" is, still, about combat during WWII, and now we have some asshole who claims to have seen combat, lives in a gated community, and drives a car to compensate for his dick? Good heavens, the millitary really is desperate.
Anon1, good morning you spineless coward!
First of all, a sniper's greatest thrill is marking a kill in his logbook. PTSD, are you kidding me? If you believe in that sort of mind crap, you probably also take some sort of anti-depression med or head quack pills to maintain life on a dialy basis. Stick to eating granola and writing letters to your congressman about the 6-pack plastic holders that I throw in the river systems. If you or anyone in your family had ever seen a single day of combat, you'd be proud that you killed your enemy and made it home. I've done it twice! You must not even know anyone who's ever been in combat, stupid! If someone's shooting at you....you shoot back and kill them before you get killed. Then, if you have any nuts whatsoever, you have pride in doing so! You MORON!!
as for you Pubic Hairs......you couldn't spend an afternoon in the company that I hold. They'd eat your pansy ass alive! So put on your Argile sweater and drive your stupid sedan wherever it is that you hide on a daily basis and enjoy watching the world around you make the decisions that involve your pathetic life. When you have something manly to say besides talking about how huge my dick is folks, chime in. Otherwise shut your liberal asses up and go picket for some cause somewhere else besides here!
...by the way the State of the Union Address is tonight....tune in and learn something, you tree huggin', granola lovin' weakminded limps!
yeah, the sotu is tonight. we can all watch that illiterate brain damaged war criminal mangle the english language while speaking in a fake texas accent. how exciting. shit, i can't wait until the world never has to listen to that asswipe ever again. ship his, cheney's, cuntasleeza, little piggie rove's asses off to the hague. and fttr, you're without a doubt a total small-dicked closet case sad sack loser. your republican, authoritian wet dream is crumbling, and you can't stand the thought of educated, enlightened people running the show for a change. well, get used to it. your worthless ass is being relegated to the trash pile where it belongs. white trash, that is. people like you are nothing but garbage. now go and find some fascist cock to suck, douchebag.
You dipshit! You really are for "the cause."
Keep believing that your weak ass party will have control....maybe you'll even get a female president sometime in the future, you FAGG! Even if your busted ass party has partial control, don't you realize that MONEY $$$ is what runs our country??!!...and who do you think has the $$$.....we also have the power dipshit, no matter how many of your weak ass party members get elected we'll still runs the show from behind the scenes..TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMY bitch!!!!!!!!!!The rich get richer and the poor stay poor!!! Remember, that's how our country works.
Furthernore since your family(probably a lie,) has been in energy extraction for decades, your Mom's dick will work fine for the fascist cock that you want me to suck!!
I'm beginning to think FTTR isn't real.
....oh great now we have some other hairy legged woman chiming in.
"Crystal Light," I guess you think that this computer is typing by it's self??
No wonder there are so many head shops in this town...we have to keep all the dopes supplied with plenty of paraphenaialia so they can keep smoking their budz so they can keep being DELLUSIONAL!!
You're a smart one Perrier!
Will someone please apply a smart statement in here so that we can have an educated conversation instead of argueing. These liberals just want to argue, to fight for the "cause." Folks, I hate to tell you, but there is NO "cause!"
So, if there is a conservative out there, who belongs to either party, who wants to comment of the Nuge's performance and how it rocked the Ball, please drop us a line.
Have the best of days Conservatives.
You're not fooling anybody by posing as "FTTR!". I look forward to the day when you fall out of your tree stand. And thank you for taking your sorry-ass shtick out of the Great Lake State.... Texas is welcome to you.
