The Nuge responds to his CDA casino cancellation

For those who haven't had enough of Ted Nugent responding to the Coeur d'Alene Tribe's cancellation of his show scheduled for the casino in early August, we offer this link.

He wrote a long guest column as an exclusive for WND in which he refers to critics as  “lying freaks” whose work against him only proves “that I am not only on the right track doing God's work spotlighting the current infestation of cockroaches amongst us, but that they are clearly scared to death of me and virtually incapable of debating me one on one.”

So clearly, he's being spare with his rhetoric.

WND, also known as World Net Daily, for those unfamiliar with the broad range of news sites the Internet provides, offers a wide range of political commentary and is sort of Ground Zero for “birther” reporting that Barack Obama was not born in the United States.

DNC caucus descending on N. Idaho

Political operatives from 13 Western states will be meeting at the Coeur d’Alene Casino this weekend, providing local residents with a glimpse of something almost as rare in North Idaho as a Kootenai sturgeon.

Democrats. (Yeah, there used to a lot more of them around these parts, too.)

The Western States Caucus will be bringing Democratic National Committee members in for about four days of confering, conversing and otherwise hobnobbing with their brother wizards.

Some might ask why, in a state that’s among the most Republican red in the nation, based on the presidential election results or the ratios in the Legislature, where Democratic caucuses could be held in phone booths, if there were any such receptacles to be found.

But Barack Obama won the state’s caucuses last spring, and the party has hopes that the West will become “the new South,” Aleita Huguenin, the chairwoman of the caucus said.
