Ted Nugent Blames a Kidney Stone for Turning Him Into a Crackpot

When you think of "moderate" politics, you think of Ted Nugent. Haha. Kidding, of course. When you think of "extreme right-wing Republican Obama-hater," then you think of Ted Nugent.

But Nugent doesn't seem to think so. He's apparently under the fantastically deluded notion that he is a "moderate." If you don't believe it, just listen to him scream at CBS News interviewer Jeff Glor -- and, for good measure, the female producer.


In the interview, Jeff Glor has the temerity to insinuate that gun-loving, perpetually-plaid-wearing, not-rockin'-the-soul-patch Nugent, who last month said he would end up "dead or in jail" if Obama is re-elected, isn't a "moderate."

"I'm a perfect human being!" Nutty Nuge hollers, spiraling into some kind of off-topic rant about taking dying children on their last fishing trip. Yes, Ted, you are perfect. Perfectly loony.

After the tirade, Glor says that Nugent's wife made him apologize -- because apparently Nugent didn't think of this idea himself. Nuge later tried to blame his cranky crackpotness on a kidney stone. Jeez, Ted, you must have a thousand kidney stones, because you are always moody, cranky, bullying, scary, and threatening.

What do you think of Ted? Patriotic moderate or lunatic fringe?
