Ted Nugent threatened Obama/Clinton and McCain will join him on stage

John McCain is set to speak at the NRA annual meeting with Ted Nugent four days before the Kentucky primary on May 16th, 2008. McCain's campaign has kept this appearance low-key so far. Maybe we can put down our primary swords and join together to get this into the open!
Why would we want to do this? Well because Ted Nugent is a nut-job!
Why might McCain be reluctant to have himself officially listed on the NRA's event? The answer may well be his concern about being associated with Nugent who, less than one year ago, held up two machine guns at a concert and--in one of the most brazen displays of violent rhetoric by a well-known pundit ever caught on video--threatened the lives of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sen. Diane Feinstein, Sen. Hillary Clinton, and Sen. Barack Obama.
Please check out Jeffrey Feldman's Frameshop post.
The concert video link has some choice quotes:
These are some of the violent lines Nugent shouts at the cheering crowd in the video clip:"Hey, Obama! [holds up machine guns] You might want to suck on one these you punk...Obama, he's a piece of s--t!"
"Hillary! [holds up machine guns] You might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b---h!"
"Hey Diane Feinstein! [holds up machine guns] Ride on these you worthless whore!"
This is something I think should be talked about, and I hope our primary excitement doesn't give McCain a free pass.
