Remember that smirking cowboy from Crawford that all the Democrats used to make fun of – you know, the one that was president of the United States before the present one?

They said he was stupid and dishonest, called him all kinds of ugly names, and made up the most ridiculous stories about him. 

They showed no restraint whatsoever, nor any respect for the truth.

Of course, that was then and this is now, and we all know that the rules of proper political behavior are made up on the fly by Democrats and applied only to Republicans.

Still, you don’t have to be a Ted Nugent fan – or even a Greg Abbott supporter – to be bemused by the dust up over the Nuge’s latest careless and tasteless characterization of Barack Obama. 

“I have obviously failed,” Ted confessed at a hunting trade show in Vegas last month, “to galvanize and prod, if not shame, enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America.”

Ted may suffer delusions of grandeur and have a loose command of his native tongue, but he’s not the only one with a nagging sense that he could have done more to dissuade fatuous fellow voters from casting their presidential ballots unwisely, twice.

It’s interesting that the phrase “subhuman mongrel” is what Democrats claim to find offensive. How odd that the hyphenated adjectives preceding it -- “communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured” – raised not a hackle.

We also find the phrase “subhuman mongrel” offensive, as well as inaccurate. Someone needs to tell the Motor City Madman that a mongrel is subhuman. And that he should know better.

The least effective way to rain down criticism on a president-- Republican or Democrat-- is to call him names.
