The Nuge for Obama’s Drug Czar!

 

Rockin’ Ted Nugent
wants to declare all-out war upon our neighbors to the South.

Just to make sure that the Monday morning news cycle remains
lively, word arrives that the Motor City Madman – that’s Ted Nugent to YOU, pal
– is throwing his hat into the ring for consideration as America’s Drug
Czar for the new Obama administration. Last week at the conservative blog
HumanEvents.com, in a self-penned article succinctly titled “Nugent for Drug
Czar,” the gonzo rocker and libertarian-tilting pundit (he regularly
contributes to the blog) cites the “state of emergency” currently existing at the
Arizona-Mexico border and the ongoing violence among the Mexican drug cartels
as compelling reasons for President Obama needing to be “prepared to wage war…
with more than just soaring rhetoric.”

 

Ergo, the Nuge concludes, “We need a Drug Czar who will commit
to the American people to stopping at least 50% of the illegal drugs flowing
into the country within the first year of the Obama Administration. That’s the
kind of leadership America
wants and deserves from its government.”

 

You can read Nugent’s entire editorial at the Human Events
site. And yes, he does launch into some wonderfully overheated rhetoric linking
pot-smoking (among other vices) to aiding and abetting terrorists:

 

“Call me, President Obama. Hippies, dope heads, corrupt
politicos and various other human debris hate me, which makes me the perfect
man for the job.As Drug Czar, I would charge our mayors and police departments
to commit to fighting the drug gangs their top priority. Our inner cities will
remain war zones until we commit to taking the trash out.

 

As America’s
Drug Czar, I would put a big hurt on the drug kingpins and consumers like they
have never seen. Every American who smokes dope, manufactures, buys or sells
meth or uses any illegal drugs is aiding and abetting the enemies of America. Case
closed.”

 

Ah. Well, “change” being what it is, this would certainly
amount to a “change” in America’s
drug policy. And as we all know, the War On Drugs has been a massive failure to
date. We’re not completely sure, however, that a “change” in the direction of ramping up the drug war is what we
need….
