You say "endorsement," I say "what's that smell!?"

Gotta share this, just because Ted Nugent is all over the news right now, and not for being a lovely human being.

It happens that I'm part of the campaign team for a candidate running for a seat in the Colorado state senate. The position was previously held by term-limited Scott Renfroe (R-Leviticus), who gained immediate national notoriety for his freshman floor speech equating gays to murderers and worthy of the same punishment. This is a truly venomously red district, so our guy knew going in that it would be a tough battle.

Then our sheriff, also term-limited, decided that he wants the seat. This is the sheriff who led the pack in howling quite loudly about the awfulness of the President's recommendations on gun safety following the horrible events at Sandy Hook. He is all about guns, guns, and more guns, and enjoys the full-throated support of the state's LaPierre wannabe.

So, on the sheriff's campaign website, there's a button you can click to see who is endorsing him. And the second one on the list is none other than Ted Nugent:


Now we wait to see if the sheriff defends Nugent or quietly removes the endorsement. Frankly, I'll be amazed if it's the latter.
