Ted Nugent is such a "loving" and "passionate guy" he went on an expletive-laced rant to prove it.
In his first interview following his Secret Service interrogation, the Nuge went berserk trying to convince CBS This Morning's Jeff Glor that he's not the unhinged bomb-thrower the Democratic National Committee says he is. Per Mediaite's Alex Alvarez's write up, Nugent said:
Call me when you sit down across from someone who has more families with dying little boys and girls who get a call to take them on their last fishing trip in life. Call me when you [bleep] meet someone who does that more than I do. Because that’s really moderate. In fact, you know what that is? That’s extreme. I’m an extremely loving, passionate man and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damn nice guy. If can you find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll [bleep]. Or [bleep]. How’s that sound?
Clearly Nugent is trying to say his charitable acts expunge the venomous things he's said in the past. Unfortunately, he comes off sounding like the guy from Office Space. I'm good at dealing with people. Can't you understand that?! What the hell is wrong with you people!?
