Ted Nugent Endorses GOP Candidate Mitt Romney

If you’re a voter who’s silly enough to be influenced by endorsements from rock stars, Ted Nugent just made your life a little easier: he’s thrown his right-wing weight behind Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

On Friday, Nugent — who’s currently prepping for a tour with Styx and REO Speedwagon — tweeted:

after a long heart&soul conversation with MittRomney today I concluded this goodman will properly represent we the people & I endorsed him

That said, Nugent would’ve preferred Rick Perry, governor of his home state of Texas.  In a recent interview, the Motor City Madman mused:

If the real Rick Perry had been at those debates, he would still be in the race. It is my firm belief that Rick Perry would have [made] and would make the best president we could choose … Whatever occurred at those early debates that caused the real Rick Perry to take a back seat to whoever that was literally caused my wife to cry. We thought, ‘Has he been advised by idiots?’ To this day, we still don’t know what happened.

Perry shot to the top of the polls when he announced his candidacy, only to famously flame out after a series of debate gaffes. (Of course, there are some days that the only time Mitt Romney opens his mouth is to change his shoes, but that’s neither here nor there.)

And how does Nugent — probably the staunchest member of the National Rifle Association in the history of ever — feel about the fact that when Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he signed off on an assault weapons ban?

He was in Massachusetts. He wasn’t in America.

Now, who wants to tell Boston that its home state seceded from the Union?
