Sarah Palin

Dear Governor Palin,

Please accept this copy of my new book, "TED WHITE & BLUE-The Nugent Manifesto" for you and your family. As a proud fellow American hunter, fisherman and lover of Alaska's soul cleansing magnificent Spirit of the Wild, we who live our American Dream by God, truth, logic, goodwill and decency, thank you for bringing such defiant common sense and self evident truth back to the GOP and politics. We wish you Godspeed for the best hunting and fishing season of your life and pray to God almighty that you bring your bold spirit to the White House.

Godbless,

American BloodBrothers, Ted Nugent and family

The weirdest part is that the letter is actually a publicity stunt real. Apparently that gross picture is real too.

Nugent lives near President George W. Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, and said he caught Bush's attention at his private inauguration party in 2000. "When he noticed me, he was surrounded by these huge bankrollers from his campaign. He literally swept past all of them and said, 'Laura! Look who's here! It's Ted!' Then he hugged me and took me by the shoulders. He said, 'Just keep doing what you're doing. Don't think that we don't know what you're up to out here. Stay on course.'"

does anyone on bv actually care about politics and read into the issues, or do they just assume all republicans are evil and liberals are always right? I think both parties have major faults, but to blindly follow Obama and ridicule the others is just as ignorant and naive as the people you claim to chastise. Not everything Palin and McCain do is the work of the devil, and behind some of Obama's words, there are a lot of lies and false promises from a man who has no real experience doing anything aside from running for president.

I have respect for McCain & Palin. Ted nugent? He is a joke, and this post is about him. It's not about Republicans and Democrats, it's about an amazing guitarist who acts like a moron...

Posted by Anonymous | September 17, 2008 1:25 PM

1:18, clearly this post isn't a knock on hunting, its tagged as "politics, palin". and the "guidance" or deities that one party seems to claim, is really just a way to appeal to the majority of voters who do care about that. Don't mock the republicans b/c they clearly know how to play the game and the democrats do not. The goal is to win, and politicians in general will sell any amount of shit to make that happen. Blame the american people in general for the way the country is headed, not the people who used the system in place to get elected.

Hey 1:11, I follow politics and I can say with confidence that Palin and McCain will do more to erode at our economy, equal rights, and goodwill with our allies than any other president. While Obama might not be a beacon of progress for the White House, he will definitely be able to clean up the mess that the Bush Administration and McCain have caused.

That link in the post is the most damning evidence I've yet seen as to why this woman must be stopped. Or am I, in some contorted, fucked-up Republican point-of-view, being sexist saying that, because I used the word "woman" when addressing her? Hell, I don't even think "human" applies in this case.

that is truly one of the more asinine things I've read in a while.
pull your head out of your ass.
the reason the republicans are "mocked" is not because they know how to manipulate the system or cater to the ignorant masses (who'd happily take political advise from the nuge) to get that almighty win.
it's because the shit they say is fucking crazy.
CRAZY.

Obama's no saint, but he's the best available option.
if McCain and Palin make it to the white house we're all fucked.

Sure, the liberals are going to take your hard earned money and -- oh, wait... how much are we all going to pay to bail out the private banking and insurance firms that couldn't run their businesses properly after they lobbied so hard for deregulation?
And we'll sure be in trouble with terrorists when the Dems take the White House and -- oh, wait... who ventured into the wrong country to root out those responsible for 9/11 and wound up aggravating the problem further than actually working to solve it?
And thank God Republicans have been there fighting for the rights of the unborn! Now, if they could only start fighting for the rights of the born.

Hey, Brooklyn Vegan -- yes, Palin and her bunch fit right in with the Macho Hunter Ted Nugent I-hunt-anything-that-moves-in-the-forest redneck bunch.

Not sure why he didn't also send a letter to Obama too. I'm sure if you gave Barry a rifle and said "hit that animal dead center and you can become president" he'd do it in a heartbeat. Whores, one and all, aren't they?

Here's a new group you may be unaware of -- Vegans for Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty! Yes, there are some of "us" out there that just want government out of our vegan business (i.e., labeling animal rights activists as domestic terrorists) and we just want our Constitution back. Ron Paul has stated he's never hunted in his life and believes that the right to own a gun is not for hunters, but for the purpose of protecting one's self against a tyrannical government.

To the misogynist/woman-haters -- the reason why Palin, Clinton and their ilk are so repulsive is because THEY ARE TOO MUCH like their power-hungry whoring male counterpart politicians!

Instead, check out Mary Ruwart, who was destined to win the Libertarian nomination until neocon Bob Barr infiltrated the Party. Smart, hip, powerful, truth-talker, not willing to pander.

As for the Obama supporters, please explain why he is any different than McCain? The truth is they are both pro-war globalists with different rhetoric. Compare their civil liberty actions -- like, they both supported the reauthorization of the Patriot Act and Obama supports FISA legislation. (in other words, say hello to Big Brother and goodbye to your rights, including the Internet as you know it)

Either do some extensive research on your candidate OR DON'T BOTHER TO VOTE.

as for you, 1:31-
please do tell how Obama "will definitely be able to clean up the mess that the Bush Administration and McCain have caused."

sounds like you are a bit over-confident in someone who has stepped onto the Democratic platform and said, "All of this is Me." -having never championed one single Democratic issue (i.e. Hillary owns the issue of universal health care, McCain owns pork-barrel spending).

What issues has Obama actually fought for that gives you the presence of mind to put all your faith in HIM and dismiss others who have actually fought for issues they care about.

Obama only fights for his campaign for the presidency.
He is doing exactly what everyone accused Hillary of doing: saying anything he has to say to get elected.

Don't worry, he will win (not that he actually deserves it). He'll be the 2nd least deserving person ever to be elected.

But no one likes to be called a racist
(buzz word of the year, y'all)

White guilt gave us Affirmative action.
Affirmative Action will deliver the presidency to Mr. Obama.

The best thing that ever happened to Barack Obama was 8 years of the Bush Administration, otherwise none of this would have been possible.

If I vote McCain, am I not worthy to attend concerts or read about whats going on in the music and art scene in NYC? These ideals are not mutually exclusive, and that seems the be the actual issue here. Everyone needs to realize they are great things to be learned from everyone. I bet some of you are so happy that all the "yuppie" wall st guys are getting fired and the banks are collapsing.

And this Obama "fan" absolutely recognizes that he is a politician, and is imperfect. But people use that word as an epithet to reinforce their lazy cynicism and apathy. The truth is that some are far more crooked than others. It seems like that would be apparent to anybody who has watched the Bushies act aggressively against the interests of 99% of the country for the last 8 years.

1)"let's see how smug you fucking limp-writsted trust fund neocon kids are about fighting for freedom..." -- I am constantly surrounded by trust fund kids here in NYC...and they are all Obama supporters and democrats. Both sides of the political spectrum are full of people who like to pull a lever and not know why they're doing it, and everyone in hollywood who is pro-Obama? How many millions do they have? Please...save that speech for someone who didn't have their billionaire boss tell them to go to the Clinton inaugural ball or else they would be fired. (True story)

2) Let's not turn this into a black/white issue, please? If someone puts down Obama it doesn't make them a "cracker" nor a republican. It might be someone pointing out that all of these fucking people are cheesy politicians and they're not pleased with being given these two choices. If someone doesn't like Obama, it doesn't mean they're a racist - and if you start pulling those punches, then you end up being no better than anyone in the McCain group making shit up. It means you're digging deep into your ass to find something mean and stupid to say because you can't find something valid. There are plenty of reasons to dislike both candidates. I think there are more, definitely, about Palin, but anyway...

3) To the asswipes who said "Too bad Palin didn't abort her retarded baby." and "Michelle Obama never crapped out a retard." - If you hate Palin, fine, and if you idolize Obama, go right ahead; but don't start making fun of a Downs syndrome child and bring their kids into this. That makes you no better than the people you're against. In fact, that kind of statement makes them look pretty good.

This kind of bullshit that's being prattled off on here is perfect fodder for either party to use when they say "see, those damn (fill in the blank on the Pol Party) are hitting below the belt!"

4) "I think it's hillarious that republicans read this blog." People can read this website, be a vegan (or not), and not think that Obama is a good choice (or Palin, for that matter). For those of us who are not fanatical followers on either side of the fence, who are disgusted with both candidate choices, it doesn't mean that we aren't cool enough to read this blog. THAT kind of hipper-than-thou attitude is what got middle america and whomever else voted for Bush to extend it's middle finger to the "elite liberals" and put our joke of an administration in there right now.

5) I'm a Christian, and I'm not a fucking republican. So please...I'm so pissed that Bush mixed Church and state so much...and Palin scares me even more - but don't get all "All Christians are right-wing whackjobs!" because again: that kind of bullshit talk is what is going to get Palin in the white house. All they have to do is point to some asshole (like some of the folks commenting on here) and act like they are being persecuted. As it stands, my nephew can't celebrate Xmas at his school (or pray if he wants to), but Muslim kids are allowed to get up and pray three times a day. That kind of catering is what is causing problems - and I have a problem with it.

Oh fuck it, none of it matters, it's all just a big horror show at this point. The only thing that is true that I can see is staring at me in the face: that picture says a thousand words. If Palin gets anywhere near that presidency, we're fucked. If Obama gets in there...I am concerned because I still think we will be on a smaller scale.

The whole argument of "Obama is inexperienced" is fucking absurd. He's an Illinois state senator who graduated undergrad from Columbia University, with a J.D. (magna cum laude) from Harvard; was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review; and general counsel of a law firm for over a decade (in addition to being a community organizer in Chicago for over 20 years).

John McCain worked for fucking Annheiser Busch prior to being elected senator of AZ and, similar to the arguments levied against Hillary Clinton when she took a seat in the NY Senate, he's a carpetbagger.

Ronald Reagan was President of SAG and Gov. of California prior to becoming U.S. President, and Bill Clinton was Gov. of Arkansas. These are the two greatest post-war presidents.

Republicans talk out of their asses so much it's absurd... This whole "lack of experience" argument doesn't wash at all, and is some bullshit non sequitur created by the GOP to discredit a very promising Presidential candidate.

Furthermore, the GOP labeling Obama "elitist" - as if that's a bad thing - is patently absurd. For some reason, the GOP feels obligated to levy this argument against Obama because, well, he's fucking smarter than McCain. And to claim a democrat candidate is "elitist" when the GOP is responsible for the lion's share of the lobbyist activity going on in Washington is laughable. The Republicans DON'T represent the "everyman!" They represent corporate interests!

On an unrelated note, Sarah Palin is a wackjob. I'm not even going to go there, because there's just too many things to list, and you all probably know them already...

I love Bush almost as much as BV! Now that's true fucking NYC rock-n-roll, pussies!

Fuck Liberal ass wipes. You're through come Nov...and good riddance.

Obama is a fucking con man.

"John McCain [is] a carpetbagger."

He was a military brat who went into the military himself. You can't blame him for not putting down roots anywhere. Not that I want to see him as President (or worse, dying as President).

Anybody who can walk and chew gum at the same time is better than Bush. Let's ask for a little bit more from our president.

8:03am - this is 8:33pm --
I was partying probably when you were still in middle school, I'll bet...and I'm a lot of fun to party with now. Don't be a jackass.

I hardly ever rant about politics, but some of the bullshit that was flying around here got under my skin. I'm annoyed with both parties, and terrified about the upcoming election...and when you get people who say pretty nasty shit about retarded children or complete crap like "only the Republicans are spoon-fed trust-funders" (every trust-funder over here in Billyburg is voting for Obama, so I don't even want to hear it)...or even insinuate that if somebody doesn't want to vote for Obama, they are either 1) Racist or 2) A republican bible-thumping fucktard...well, ya know, that kind of burns my ass. Because although I think Obama seems like a nice guy, I'm not sold on the fact that this cat isn't going to crumble when dealing with some of those foreign leaders who would love to see America fall on its ass. My other choice is a duo that make Bush almost look liberal. Yes, I'm pissed.

Besides...the creator of this site probably would like a few folks to say something that they mean or get incensed about as much as drop in and just write something silly for shits and giggles. Otherwise they wouldn't be posting anything having to do with politics, they'd stick to what cool band is playing in Williamsburg or the new vegan restaurant with soy gouda mac n' cheese.

Actually, that sounds pretty good - is there a place with good vegan mac n' cheese?

10:22 / 8:33 has doubts about Obama. Just something about him- doesn't seem like he could take Ahmadinejad in a fight. Too skinny or something.

To vote for Sen. Obama is to also vote for a Democratic Party that consumed most of the political system's available oxygen for seven years fighting a U.S. president harder than they did the perpetrators of September 11.

That is the reason I will never, ever vote for a Democrat...no matter how funky his dancing moves on Ellen are.

Is it because of the Democrats that they haven't found Bin-Landen?

10:46 - The Onion thing was hilarious.

Sigh. 10:35 - I think he can be very diplomatic, but he gets flustered and off-track when in debate. He's very idealistic - which is a wonderful thing - except that there are a lot of countries out there who could give a shit about idealism and will be tough sells...especially after these last 8 years of a circus act.

But...is that okay for me to have doubts about Obama? And not be attacked for it? I think its hilarious that both ends of the political spectrum have the "you're with us or you're against us" attitude. I mean, it is a free country...sort of.

And yeah, the guy could afford to eat an extra sandwich or something, for chrissake. ;)

"Is it because of the Democrats that they haven't found Bin-Landen?"

Congresional Dems going on and on about evil Bush, not to mention opposing his efforts to give the CIA the power to wire tap suspected terrorsits overseas, didn't help find Bin Laden, that much is certain. It's the party of going soft on the guys who are actively trying to kill Americans- especially those of us who live and work in downtown Manhattan.

But, I understand that people hate Bush so much that it keeps them from facing that reality.

The bigger threat to people living and working downtown is construction workers boozing and smoking on the job at the Deutsche Bank building.

Indeed a threat. But not one that killed, or will mostly likely kill, 3000 innocent people.

I suppose 12:20 would've had the Dems write Bush a blank check on dismantling our civil liberties in the course of fighting the so-called "War on Terror" which he botched ANYWAY even after shredding the Constitution. THIS is why you'll "never vote for a Democrat"? For acting like an opposition party when the country needed it most? If anything, they didn't fight enough! It's an overused term, but I dunno- smells like FASCISM to me.

No, I wouldn't want a blank check, although I'm sure you'd be happier in your position if I did. (that way you can yell FASCIST! where no fascism exists) I cited a specific act of the Dems denying the CIA the ability to tap suspected overseas terrorists calls. That's not fascsim, but then again, Bush hatred colors everything people like you see out there.

The Dems agreed to the revisions to FISA after challenging the authority that it gave Alberto Gonzales, that paragon of integrity that Rebublicans entrusted with our civil liberties. Are you really trying to make the case that the Democrats were being obstructionists just for the sake of it? Is that why they rolled over on the Iraq war resolution? Because they just wanted to get in Bush's way no matter what?

And yeah, I can't stand Bush. And judging by his approval rating (28%), there are a lot of people who agree with me. But apparently you'd rather vote for the jerks who helped him force his outrageously destructive policies down our throats than the opposition, who at least tried to slow him down.

Look, I won't lose a wink of sleep over whether or not you'll ever vote for another Democrat. Especially if you live in NY because we have this place locked down. But spare us your flimsy arguments.

On second thought, let the flimsy arguments fly. It's not like they're at all convincing.

Posted by 3:19 / 2:32 | September 18, 2008 3:29 PM

Bush's approval rating is really low, although the Dem controlled Congress' approval ratings is actually lower (23%).

I could care less if you're convinced of anything. You're free to hate Bush, Repub etc - makes no difference to me.

It may be close, but Obama isn't winning in Nov. Americans simply won't elect the most Liberal member of the Senate to be Pres.

Why does the Media not ask Obomba the important questions, like who wrote his letter of recomendation to Harvard. When did he quit going by the Name Barry, Why can't he produce a birth cirtificate? There are also several racisit quoats in his two books that need to be addressed.

Posted by Anonymous | September 18, 2008 4:20 PM

True, the rating for the BARELY Dem-controlled, no-nothing-because-the-Repubs-filibuster-or-Bush-vetoes Congress is even lower than Bush's. But we're still on track for an Obama win in November and in all probability there will be more Dems in both houses. Then you'll find out what Liberal really means. It will probably be a lot more agreeable than our 6-year experiment with whatever the hell the Republicans were up to (sure wasn't "conservatism"- check out that spending!).

"Liberal" really means I have less money to spend on my grand Manhattan lifestyle (including 5 or so rock shows a month) so the guy working at Kinkos in Queens can afford his rent.

It is sad that liberals want to win so bad that they don't even care who they put in office. Do a background check and quit putting your foot in your mouth 4:29. Nudgent, Mccain , Palin all great americians, I can't imigane an Americia without people like these.

Wow, this has really gone off the rails. Where are you nutjobs coming from? "It is sad that liberals want to win so bad that they don't even care who they put in office." Like, say, a fundamentalist 18-month governor with a closet full of skeletons, cronyism and vendettas (running on a REFORM platform- PLEASE!) who can't survive in any public forum that is not completely under the control of her handlers? Someone like that? I could go on and on, but there is no point, as you are apparently immune to reason.

As for 4:49, people making under $250K a year have nothing to fear from Obama's economic plan. Really, I'd be way more concerned about what 4 more years of Phil Gramm's economic agenda would do to your financial health. Read the front page of, say, ANY newspaper this week? Yeah, that's the vision of McCain's chief economic advisor.

5:00, your so blind, ya just can't ask the questions about Barry (Barak) that need to be answered. This is our country that is at stake, come on wake up, think for gods sake. again this is the future of our country. Please think about whats right not what feels good. Just because it feels good doesn't make it right. Remember 911

I suspect that you're just fucking with me, but if not: Obama has been under intense media scrutiny for the last 19 months. If you're still looking for answers to your questions, you just haven't been looking hard enough.

Meanwhile, I have to wonder how much you really know about the woman you presumably want to be the next VP (or, God forbid, President!). Seems like new stuff comes out every other day. And the McCain campaign is now interfering with an ethics investigation in her home state, trying to keep her skeletons in the closet.

Posted by Anonymous | September 18, 2008 5:31 PM

Palin is a great American? Why? Because McCain and Bush say so? WTF? She is under scrutiny for abusing what little power she has in Alaska, either trying to ban books (and get the librarian fired when told no) or fire a top police official because he wouldn't fire her ex-brother-in-law.

If she abuses power on that smaller kind of level, how will she abuse it as VP...and potentially President, if, God forbid, McCain doesn't make it through his term?

Matt Damon, albeit a celebrity (and the "what the fuck do they know about anything" that goes with even listening to a celebrity bring up politics) has a good point: I would also like to know, like him: does Palin think there were dinosaurs on this planet 6,000 years ago? And why did she want to build a sports facility when her streets were pre-20th century standards? I bitch about the potholes in NYC, but I hear it's nothing compared to Wasilla - and the fact that they didn't even have a decent drainage system...

By reasons of simple deduction, if someone is abusing their power, they are not a nice person - nor are they patriotic, if they are using a U.S. office to do it. So how does this make Palin a good American?

Give her a hockey stick and tell her to go back to Alaska. She scares me. Then again, so did Hilary...but not quite as much.
