Ted Nugent, Mitt Romney’s most prominent surrogate, used to be a pretty good guitar player but he’s no longer playing with a full deck. At the NRA convention he said “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” When questioned, he portrayed himself as somehow endangered (“I’m a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally.”), rather than his being a threat to the President.
And then, presaging the Republican fall playbook, he added, “Saul Alinsky. This is the Saul Alinsky ‘Rules for Radicals’ playbook. The Nazis and the Klan hate me.”
