Short answers with Nugent

Ted Nugent has a knack for shooting first when answering a question, then tending to casualties in the following explanation.

Q. Why do you scoff at compromise?

A. What’s our debt now? Trillions of dollars. That’s the result of compromise.

Q. Boxers or tighty whities?

A. I wear angry badgers as a jock strap

Q. Why are you wearing a Confederate flag shirt?

A. Because somebody gave it to me in South Carolina and it’s cool.

Q. Would your music evolve to a higher level if you weren’t distracted by hunting?

A. Are you kidding me? There would be no Ted Nugent if I didn’t kill my dinner with a sharp stick.
