    Ted Nugent lived up to his "Motor City Madman" reputation during a television interview with "CBS Morning News."
    The rocker, hunter and political activist sat down with Jeff Glor in his first on-camera appearance since being interviewed by the Secret Service for comments about President Barack Obama made during recent a National Rifle Association meeting in St. Louis.
    The cordial interview from Nugent's Texas ranch took a bizarre turn when Glor hinted that for Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney to win he'll need support from moderates. Nugent said he was not moderate and ...
    "Call me," Nugent continued in a raised, irritated voice, "when you 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 damned nice guy. ... And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I'll [expletive]. Or [expletive]. How's that sound?"
    Glor explained later the second part of the tirade was directed to a female CBS producer who was off-camera.
    In an more pleasant exchange earlier in the interview, Nugent told Glor the meeting with the secret service was "adorable." The musician hinted he told the agents they should be investigating their bosses.
    He went on to further describe the meeting:
    I don't think their concern was that I threatened someone. I think their concern is that someone claimed I threatened someone. In fact, I got to tell you, and I don't mean to put any professionals on the spot, but — and I don't have the greatest hearing in the world — but I thought I heard something to the point of, "I didn't think so."
    Nugent blamed his energy on a kidney stone, which was removed right after the interview in an emergency room.

    I thought he lived in Michigan....probably couldn't take the gun laws and muzzies.

    The rebuke from Romney.....pansy...why respond at all. Not necessary and just serves to alienate his base in order to win votes from people who dislike the Nuge. "Did you see how Romney cut down that crazed killer? Maybe we should vote for him."

    He has a ranch in Michigan and one in Texas. He spends most of his time in Texas though.

    Just looked up the G Gordon Liddy quotes from the mid 90's: lol

    August 26, 1994 - Now if the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms comes to disarm you and they are bearing arms, resist them with arms. Go for a head shot; they're going to be wearing bulletproof vests." ... "They've got a big target on there, ATF. Don't shoot at that, because they've got a vest on underneath that. Head shots, head shots.... Kill the sons of bitches.

    September 15, 1994 - If the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms insists upon a firefight, give them a firefight. Just remember, they're wearing flak jackets and you're better off shooting for the head.

    Thigh shot is better. It'll take two of his buddies to get him to the back lines before he bleeds out through the femoral artery. One shot - three goblins out of the fight. ;)

    Note: This does NOT work on muzzie tangos - they'll just let their homey die...... [stirpot]

    It didn't take long for the bad guys in Iraq and Asscrackastan to figure this one out. When Tier 1 units, special mission units, etc. would assault the bad guys, they would shoot the legs out from under them. Not necessarily a lot of fatalities, but definitely a lot of casualties with much time lost on the time or permanent disability. Saw lots of stepped up SF recruiting efforts after that to try to replenish the ranks.
