Last night I rewatched the entire debate in my dreams, start to finish, the only difference being that Bob Schieffer was a minotaur. Yeah. Either I've been spending too much time watching PBS (entirely possible) or the vodka was a bad idea (more likely). At least the fuzzy sense of well-being kept me from crying or kicking my TV during critical moments. :D?

Speaking of alcohol, in a few days I will legally be allowed to drink it. *kermit arms* It's weird sometimes to realize I'm so young when I feel like a crotchety nana croaking at the news stations about the good old days. Whatever, I'm excited. And I have no idea what the hell to do to celebrate, since no plans are forthcoming. Ideas?

In other news: Ted Nugent, you're a peach.

Uncle Ted said journalists are mostly "left wing, f****** hippies" who have never—not once—represented him fairly. He called Claire a wench with an agenda. After that, things only got more interesting.

Ted Nugent: You don't feel the love?

Claire Galofaro: I don't. No one's ever called me a wench before.

Really?

I'm pretty sure you're the first.

You've got a whole bunch of firsts coming if you keep spending time with me.

I've heard that about you.

I'm just adorable. I'm the most adorable, precious bastard that ever lived.

And what makes you so adorable?

Honesty, for starters.

Oh yeah? Tell me something honest.

You're a fashion wench. I just did. And I'm going to see if you really qualify as an Outside journalist.

You've even told a number of people to suck your machine gun.

It's a target-rich environment. On stage I told Hillary and Obama to suck on my machine gun. I think I actually told Hillary to straddle one and ride it off into the sunset, too.

So, um, are you a sexist person?

I'm very sexy.

Sexist.

No, not at all.



Right. Okay.

Ted Nuget is a dick, and an asshole. He is sometimes right, but often is not always, nor is it an excuse for him being a dick and an asshole.

And god damn he is a sexist, misogynistic, racist bastard. Oh yes. If he stopped making apologies for it, I'd believe his 'honesty' line better.

Also, bb, I loves you.

FAWjfowaif just - how can you spout something like that and then say it's not sexist with a straight face? It's MIND BOGGLING. ffjifksfmfs.

I loves you too, sweetie. *snorfs*

...why does anyone bother interviewing Ted Nugent anymore, seriously? I mean, he's been spouting this stuff since... well, probably since before I've been alive, I'd imagine.

[identity profile] unamaga.livejournal.com 2008-10-16 09:39 pm (UTC)(link)
I have no idea. It still baffles me every time, no matter how often he acts like an idiot, though, so I guess that's at least one person who'll read the article.

It absolutely breaks my brain that he can say all this with a straight face.

Have a preemptively early Happy Birthday wish! (You young thing, you.)

Ted Nugent - how's about you ride off into your own sunset on your damned high horse? KTHNKBYE.

Thank you, darling! :">

Word. I just. Do people like him not hear what they're saying?

Ah, Ted, he's completely bonkers, but he's got some right ideas. He is a hunter, but he also owns hundreds of acres that he uses as a wildlife preserve-- and no, that's not a convenient term for "hunting ground".

He is an asshole and a bastard, that's true.I have to admire him for his ability to speak his mind, though; I wish more folks were like that. Thank the gods that someone is honest. And I find it hilarious that people will love fictional characters that do-- House, McKay, and so on-- but will loathe real people who do.

As for the sexism... What, we can call him a dick but he can't call a woman a wench? Please. Maybe he is, but then so are we.

While I also admire people who speak their minds, and I do think some of his efforts are commendable, we'll have to agree to disagree on this. His views and mine very very rarely coincide, and I'm not going to apologize for that. First, wench - when used in this kind of context - is a loaded term that implies servitude and makes me personally and incredibly uncomfortable; dick, while I agree is insulting, just doesn't carry that kind of connotation to me. Secondly, I've never seen House, so I can't speak for that, but I think there's a world of difference between Rodney McKay's brand of honest and Ted Nugent's - for example, as far as I know, Rodney McKay has never suggested a woman straddle a machine gun. And if he had said something to that affect, I can assure you I wouldn't celebrate it for its brutal honesty.

[identity profile] crazyace86.livejournal.com 2008-10-17 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, we'll probably disagree. He's more of a House than a Rodney. House is often purposefully vicious and demeaning, but I think he does that because it's the only way to get an honest response from someone. Ted does it because it makes people uncomfortable and he finds it funny. Like I said, he's bonkers.

I don't expect you to apologize, you have no need to. I don't particularly agree with Ted, either, I just think he does have a few good points in comparison to his many, many turn offs.

Happy early bday!

What ever you do, it should involve cake. And hugs.

I have no idea who Ted Nugent is, and I suspect that's a good thing.

I can has hugs!! \o/ And thank you, sweets. <3
