    I'm guessing I'm putting this in the right place? Otherwise...


    Ted Nugent Ready to Battle Antigunners for the NRA
    January 30, 2009 02:03 PM ET
    By Paul Bedard, Washington Whispers

    Barack Obama jumped over a bunch of longer-experienced presidential candidates to win the White House, so will that pattern take at the National Rifle Association? It might, considering rocker and hunter Ted Nugent's popularity among NRA members. We hear that the Nuge is being urged to get into the race, and a key NRA insider tells us: "He does have a grass-roots following." That's for sure. The singer of "Cat Scratch Fever" fame and 23 albums is being promoted on Facebook. While Nugent is an NRA board member, he doesn't have the type of top slot in the organization normally needed to springboard somebody into the presidency. Even Charlton Heston, who played Moses in Hollywood, worked his way up to the presidency.

    Well they are both radicals so it's a good fit, I suppose.

    While I'm a big fan of Nugent and his stances on hunting and gun control, we don't really need a figurehead that appeals to us gunners. Someone who appeals to the anti crowd is far more useful to our cause.

    ...then again, someone who is not afraid to call them out (the anti's I mean) on the stupidity of their so-called "commonsense" gun laws might not be such a bad thing either. :thumbup:
