The last thing CBS expected when they invited Ted Nugent over to discuss Mitt Romney and partisan politics was for their guest to prove he was a “damn nice guy”- by making lascivious offers to the news crew if they proved him otherwise.
Perez Hilton reported that the fireworks began when CBS reporter Jeff Glor implied that Nugent isn’t a ‘moderate’ Republican. The usually goofy guitarist broke into a monologue.
“I think in an honest and sincere analysis of what Ted Nugent is, I think once you take away the battle fatigues of my rock and roll insanity — I like to use this analogy: I’m a welder. When I work, sparks are flying and there’s soot, but you know what? When I’m done welding, I take off the regalia. I shower, and I’m a pretty nice guy to hang around with. You know what I am after the welding?” Nugents asked rhetorically. “I’m a moderate. “
Ted Nugent concluded that, “I am an extremely loving, passionate man. And people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damn nice guy.” He then told the CBS personnel that, “And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll suck your dick.”
He then looked over at Molly Kordares, a young member of the CBS production crew. “Or [I will] fuck you,” he said. “How does THAT sound?”
Ted Nugent later apologized for his outburst.
The guitarist is no stranger to controversial remarks. Ted Nugent was investigated back in November for saying that he would be “dead or in jail by this time next year” if President Barack Obama is re-elected… while he was attending a National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis. The Secret Service interviewed Nugent shortly after the convention.

The latest gig of musician and known activist Ted Nugent has been reportedly cancelled by the Top Army brass, following his controversial comments about U.S President Barack Obama.
According to reports, Fort Knox announced in their Facebook page that they have decided to call off the upcoming performance of outspoken rocker Ted Nugent. This is the latest setback for the musician, who also faced a Secret Service probe recently and has pleaded guilty to transporting a black bear which he illegally killed during an Alaskan hunting trip.
In its statement, Fort Knox said, “After learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation.”
The June 23 show is being headlined by REO Speedwagon and Styx, who remain scheduled to perform. A search for the replacement of Ted Nugent is underway.
“Army Entertainment and the Fort Knox Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation remain committed to carrying out the June 23 concert, and the possibility exists that a replacement will be selected,” the statement said.

Musician and activist Ted Nugent reportedly slammed President Barack Obama and even encouraged followers to “chop heads off.”
According to reports, during a gathering sponsored by the National Rife Association, 63-year-old Ted Nugent – a well-known right-winger – urged members of the organization help “chop their heads off in November.” Nugent was referring to the upcoming election.
“I’ll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”
Referring to the current administration of President Barack Obama as “criminals,” Ted Nugent appeared to directly threaten Obama – which is a crime – by ranting:
“If the coyote’s in your living room, pissing on your couch, it’s not the coyote’s fault. It’s your fault for not shooting him.”
Responded Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Mitt Romney, the candidate Ted Nugent is supporting: “Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”
The Secret Service is currently looking into the comments made by Ted Nugent against President Barack Obama this weekend.
Ted Nugent originally gained fame as the lead guitarist of the band “The Amboy Dukes,” before going on a lengthy solo career. He is also noted for his conservative political views and his impassioned defense of hunting and gun ownership rights.
