W & Ted: Chickenhawks Cozy In The Coop

"Just keep doing what you're doing. Don't think that we don't know what you're up to out there. Stay the course."
President Goerge W. Bush
as quoted by fellow chickenhawk Ted Nugent

"Our failure has been not to Nagasaki them."
Ted Nugent on Iraq policy

Don't let the flag-draped rhetoric fool you. The Tedster doesn't stand alone in the Republican chickhawk coup. Head chicken in the coop is President Bush, who went AWOL while serving in the Air National Guard. Also listed are Vice President Cheney, presidential adviser Karl Rove and Paul Wolfowitz, one of the architects of the Iraq War. There are some other notables in the coop, including right-wing blabbermouth Rush Limbaugh, Fox's Bill O'Reilly, Tom DeLay and a host of others who love the war in Iraq, but somehow managed to avoid Vietnam.

There's talk about the Motor City Madman getting into politics. Here's a fine background article on Nugent's history.
