Somehow, my cell phone number got on a spam list. I've received 6 'picture' calls in the last couple of hours. (There's no pictures actually attached, as far as I can tell.)

So, apparently, even if only jokingly, Ted Nugent is considering a run for the Presidency.


You know, I can actually understand that. When you have people like Donald Trump, who is clearly unqualified for office by reasons of massive ego, lack of common sense, and overall orangeness... when he has entertained the idea of running for President multiple times (and the media eats that shit up, regardless of the fact that no matter what he says, he never actually will run)... then there's no reason at why Ted Nugent shouldn't run for the office.

I mean, let's look at some of the recent previous Republican candidates. (Yes, I am assuming that Nugent would run as a Republican, not as an Independent member of the "I shot a Buffalo with a bow and arrow" party.)

Michele Bachmann: 5'2" of pure grade-A crazy. Michele likes long walks along the beach, denying gay people any rights at all, and would have gotten the nomination last time, as she was clearly the best candidate running, with the exception of all of the rest of them.

Rick Perry: Perry torpedoed his own chances of getting the nomination by simultaneously trying to remind people he's not Bush the Second, and flubbing which agencies he'd get rid of if he became President. As it turns out, he's Texas' not-so-favorite son, as a recent poll showed that 74% of Texans do not want him to run again. The only thing Texans were more against is vinegar-based barbecue sauce.

Mitt Romney: A man so clearly unsuited for President that while he ran twice, he couldn't be bothered to produce tax records from when he first ran for President. This wouldn't have been such a problem, except his father practically invented the practice. He also failed to connect with a lot of voters who clearly weren't sympathetic to his being rich, white, Mormon, and rich. Not that being rich is a bad thing, but during a recession, it helps you connect with the voters if you don't flaunt that shit.

That's not even counting Newt Gingrich (Family values on the 'Third time's the charm' plan), Rick Santorum (campaign failure due to people Googling his name) and Herman Cain (sexual harassment in 30 minutes or less)...

Yeah, Ted Nugent would fit right the hell in with this bunch. Unfortunately.
