Now, when I think of Ted Nugent, I immediately think about two things; great guitar playing, and sex.
During his heyday, Nugent was synonymous with sex. Particularly involving his 30-something self and 13-year-old girls.
Consider his third most popular song, Wang Dang, Sweet Poontang:
That Nadine, what a teenage queen.
She lookin’ so clean, especially down in between.
Or Jailbait, his second most popular:
Jailbait you look so good to me, jailbait won´t you set me free, jailbait you look fine, fine, fine and I know I´ve got to have you in a matter of time.
Well I don´t care if you´re just thirteen, you look too good to be true. I just know that you´re probably clean, there´s one little thing I got to do to you.
Or his most popular song, Cat Scratch Fever:
I make the pussy purr with the stroke of my hand
They know they gettin’ it from me
They know just where to go when they need their lovin man
They know I do it for free
Of course, we shouldn’t forget his songs like Yank Me, Crank Me, and, The Flying Lip-Lock, and others.
What I do like about Huck’s show is that he’ll have people like Nugent on. He recently had on Tommy Chong, a strong supporter of legalizing pot. They actually had a really good discussion. They disagreed, but discussed the issues openly. Open, honest discussion like this is good and as much as I sometimes have issues with Huckabee, I do appreciate his willingness to have people on his show who disagree with him, and, unlike some other Fox hosts, lets them talk.
Sometime I’d like to see rapper Common on for a discussion. There are legitimate issues in the black community that he raises but that were overshadowed by Michelle Obama’s poor choice to have him perform.
On a similar note, and what drove me to write this, was what happened after the discussion with Nugent. That was when Huck, Nugent, and Huck’s band did one of Nugent’s old songs – Cat Scratch Fever.
I don’t think I was the only one who thought it a bit odd for a Baptist pastor to be performing such sexually explicit lyrics.
I caught myself.
I wrote the article above, as it is, yesterday morning. I was bugged by it though so didn’t post it. It seemed inappropriate, even to me, for Huckabee to perform that song, but something still didn’t seem right about criticizing him for it.
Last night it occurred to me why I was bugged. What came to my mind were similar sexually explicit lyrics written by a 40-something guy about a young teen girl. Not Nugent though, but Solomon. And Solomon’s lyrics are in my Bible. Would it be narrow-minded of me to criticize Huck for performing that song?
I guess all we’re left with is – Rock on Huck!
