(Newser) – Let's see, Ted Nugent said something controversial at the NRA convention. It wasn't the line about living under a government that is "wiping its ass with the Constitution," the comparison of four Supreme Court justices to a "stoned hippie," or even the plea to Republicans to "chop (Democrats') heads off in November." It was this one:

  • ”If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

What does that mean exactly? The Daily Intel wonders whether Nugent just threatened to assassinate the president: "Were not sure how else to take this remark from the nutjob guitarist." Sure enough, the Secret Service tells the bog that it's aware of the remark and will "conduct an appropriate followup." The Hollywood Reporter has more, including Nugent's real favorite to win the Republican nomination.

Our Uncle Ted is a bloviator, verbose & has his view point & is unlikely would ever harm anyone.

What Ted said pales in comparison to what Hilary Rosen said, yet you only hear crickets coming from the right.. Watched Bill-O last night & not one word about Teds outburst...maybe today??? Fair & balanced...yeah, right!
