Conservative musician and provocateur Ted Nugent is in the news again for campaigning on behalf of Greg Abbott, a Republican running for Texas governor.
And also for this tweet:
@WolfBlitzer is a journalist & Im a gay pirate from Cuba

“I come to expect that kind of stuff,” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said on his show Wednesday, responding to the tweet. “But what really worries me, though, is some politicians continuing to embrace this guy after some of these things he’s been saying.”
Last month, Nugent called President Obama a “subhuman mongrel.”
