Redneck rhapsody

Gazette staff April 25th, 2012

The Sooner State played a peripheral role in last week’s drama surrounding rock ’n’ roller Ted Nugent and his latest rant about President Barack Obama.

At a National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis, the “Cat Scratch Fever” crooner railed that if Obama were re-elected in November, Nugent would “either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

The comments came during an interview with NRA news host Cam Edwards, a former reporter and talk-show host at KTOK-AM 1000 in Oklahoma City.

Since an OKC native drew the wild-eyed screed out of Nugent, maybe it was only fitting that Secret Service agents did their own follow-up interview with the Nuge in Oklahoma, where he was rehearsing for a concert in Ardmore.

A spokesman for the agency later said the matter had been resolved and that “the Secret Service does not anticipate any further action.” Chicken-Fried News supposes the “no action” bit also applies to the agency’s scandal regarding hookers in Colombia.
