It all went down when interviewer Jeff Glor got round to politics and Nugent’s well-known affinity for the right-leaning Republican party. Glor says, “If Mitt Romney is to win, he needs at least some of the moderate vote. And you are many things but…”
At which point Nuge jumps in and finishes Glor’s statement saying “…but not very moderate.” From there Nuge dials the rant up to 11, bizarrely claiming he takes terminally ill children fishing (which a right-wing nutter could certainly do so WTF?), before hollering:
"I'm an extremely loving and passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I'm a damned nice guy ... and if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I'll s--k your d--k."
Nugent then turned to Glor's female producer and said, "Or I'll f--k you, how's that sound?"
After the interview, Glor said Nugent's wife came out and told the former rock star that he needed to apologize which he did.
Oh boy, I bet Mitt Romney’s communications people are apoplectic over the amount of times Nugent (a.k.a. rock's loosest cannon) has been mentioned in the same breath as the candidate. Talk about bad optics. Somewhere, Barack Obama is slapping his thighs with glee.
Holy cow, there’s more? Yup:
