You know, Nugent was such a damn good guitarist, rock-wise, that I can almost forgive him his chronic mean-spirited inanity. If he horrified the guests, well, rock and roll will never die, maybe. So is he from Detroit or Kansas City?

As the accompanying article notes, Nugent would have been okay doing his usual antics at a rock and roll concert where the audience knew what to expect. Clearly, the bipartisan crowd at Perry's inaugural ball didn't.

Nugent was born in Detroit. I don't know where he lives now. Could be Austin, actually.

To be precise, the Motor City Madman was born in Redford, a working class suburb of Detroit in which I now reside and around which I grew up. As a teenager, he was considered a jerk; as an adult he's been nothing but a racist.

What would you expect from someone capable of making remarks like this:

Remember the Alamo! Shoot 'em! To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead. I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want 'em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot 'em.
