Rocker Ted Nugent just made big bucks to not show up somewhere.

The town of Longview, Texas paid Nugent $16,000 to not appear at the town's Fourth of July Festival. According to KLTV, a city spokesman said Nugent was "not the right feel for this kind of community event."

The city had reached a verbal agreement with Nugent, scheduling the rocker as the headliner who would play inside the Maude Cobb Convention and Activity Center during the town's Independence Day celebration. To break that agreement, the town paid Nugent half of his guaranteed performance fee of $32,000 from Maude Cobb's annual budget.

The move comes amid criticism of comments Nugent made about President Barack Obama in January 2014, calling him a "subhuman mongrel." Nugent, who campaigned with Texas Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott amid the controversy, apologized for those comments in February.

Abbott said he was moving on from the controversy over Nugent in late February, but his ties to the rocker remain a prominent talking point of both sides of the governor's race. Abbott's rival, Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), called the Attorney General's embrace of Nugent an "insult," while former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin (R) cited the rocker in her endorsement of Abbott.

"If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!" Palin wrote on her Facebook page.

Failed governor and candidate Sarah Palin calls Obama a failure
By SUSAN WALKER - Capitol Hill Blue
March 18, 2013

Failed Alaska Governor and equally-failed 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took the stage of the annual gathering of right-wing failures — the Conservative Police Action Conference — over the weekend to call President Barack Obama a lair and delivered a tired speech of one-liners to a group that hoops and hollers a lot but makes little difference to the party.

“Barack Obama promised the most transparent administration ever,” sneered Palin, who ran into trouble with her own coverups while serving as Alaska governor.“Barack Obama, you lie.”

Palin resigned from office before her first and only term as governor ended. He tenure in office was tinged with scandal, investigations and charges of double-dealing and false statements.

For example, while running for vice president, Palin claimed she “was cleared” in the “troopergate” scandal that accused her of illegally using influence to dismiss a state police official. In fact, she was not cleared and never was.

CPAC is viewed by Republican party main streamers as a gathering of extremists and hardcore activists who represent what some see as the root of the party’s problems and cause of a stream of election losses.

Palin, however, urged the group to stop any attempts to change the focus of the failed party.

“We’re not here to put a fresh coat of rhetorical paint on our party,” Palin said.“We’re not here to abandon our principles in a contest of government giveaways. That’s a game we will never, ever win. We’re here to restore America.”

Since failing in the 2008 Presidential campaign and then resigning from office, Palin has gone from one failure to another, including a TV series idea that didn’t work and a gig at Fox News that ended in dismissal.

She aimed some of her criticism at political strategists like Karl Rove, once described as “Bush’s brain” during her tenure with former President George W. Bush.

Rove’s response?“If I was elected to office I would finish my term,” he said.

so your are jealous?

In Oklahoma recent primary....71% accepted Sarah Palin's endorsement for a Tea Party candidate, and voted for him to run on ticket.

Since 2008 Sarah Palin your assessed loser has out earned you by 14 lifetimes.

The progressive filth pays women to not show up to be a full term and delivered-by-childbirth mother. The progressive filth, having nationalized the black population, pays it to not show up for parenting and subsequently pays them to bury their children.
One difference between Nugent and, say the president magical worthless kneegrow, is that Nugent actually intends to work.

HuffPo may be a bit National Lampoonish, but there is a kernel of truth in every story they post.
