“guitarzan is my president”
May 17, 2008 1 Comment
According to a report in today’s LA Times, right-wing rocker Ted Nugent is apparently a favorite to take over for moses the next time the NRA membership votes for a president:
Though Nugent has not sought the presidency of the NRA (the next election is in 2009), he believes that “right now, if you literally took a membership vote of the NRA and said who would you like to be president, you’re talking to the guy that would win.”
Nugent is, of course, an outspoken NRA member and proudly talks about only eating food he himself hunts and kills, which I can’t help but respect.
But there is apparently another challenger, Magnum PI himself:
With that in mind, there are those in the gun-rights movement who would prefer to see another celebrity member, such as actor Tom Selleck, take the role. Although he is an NRA board member, Selleck seldom speaks publicly about his involvement. He declined to be interviewed for this article.
“People really admire Tom Selleck, because here’s a guy who’s kind of stepped into the shoes of portraying the essential American hero,” said Dave Workman, senior editor of GunWeek magazine.
GunWeek magazine? There’s enough gun news to do a weekly? who knew?
My vote, of course, is for Nugent, but then again I am not a member.
I just want to see all those pick-up trucks with bumper stickers that read “you can have my gun when you pry it from my wang, dang sweet pontang.”
