Ted Nugent Unplugged

A British journalist has a profile of Ted Nugent and you can sense the guy's horrified amusement at the rocker's pronouncements. You can feel Nugent is having a blast playing with this guy by making outrageous statements and then waiting for the journalist's mouth to close.

The writer, searches for the appropriate hyperbole to introduce his subject.

The writer goes through all the most flagrant stories from Nugent's past and then elicits some more in-your-face responses such as this description of the deer he hunts.
They're only interested in three things: the best place to eat, having sex and how quickly they can run away. Much like the French.
Nugent lives in Crawford near the President's home. I imagine that those must be some lively neighborhood barbecues. Perhaps, next time, Dick Cheney can go hunting on Nugent's ranch. That would drive the media crazy.
