8 Crazy Reasons We Will Always Love Ted Nugent

8 Crazy Reasons We Will Always Love Ted Nugent

Ted Nugent is crazy. We've all said it once or twice (or ten times) in our lives.

Whether you love him or hate him, the Nuge is often on the fringe. He's bold, he's powerful and he certainly hasn't changed. The Motor City Madman is proud of his gun-toting, liberal-hating core beliefs, and he's been pushing the boundaries of public outrage since Barack Obama was roaming the halls at Columbia University.

Were we surprised when Uncle Ted blasted Obama, the Supreme Court and any democrat within earshot at this year's NRA Annual Meetings in St. Louis? No.

"We need to ride onto that battlefield and chop their heads off in November," he said. "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

Since his comments this past weekend, there's been a public outcry, a Secret Service investigation and a rash of public condemnation of the Nuge.

Again, how can we be surprised? What's great about Ted is likely the reason why he'll be a polarizing figure until the day he rides the great white buffalo into the sunset. He is a rocker, a redneck, a hunter, a shooter and a passionate advocate of all these things.

It's for that reason alone, we can't help but love him....like a crazy, harmless uncle. Here's eight other reasons.
