There will be as many reaction shots of the musician tonight as Paul Ryan. Here's your Motor City Madman primer
So Ted Nugent will be a guest at the State of the Union tonight, as the guest of Steve Stockman, a Republican congressman from Texas. We guess that Charlie Daniels and Lee Greenwood, the other top conservative musicians, were busy in Branson this evening.
But Nugent is far more than just some loudmouth know-nothing on the subject of hunting and gun control. And his election-related meltdown hasn’t smartened him up online. His Twitter is also filled with cooking tips, music and film criticism, vague threats in everyone’s direction — we’re especially concerned about that REO Speedwagon and Styx tour — and general ridiculousness.
On the other hand, he really likes Bruno Mars. And cilantro.
Take a look!
