Nugent (hearts) Palin

Gun-loving guitar hero Ted Nugent's ode to Sarah Palin — featured in Time magazine's roundup of the 100 most influential people of the year — reads like a mash note. "If Sarah Palin played a loud, grinding instrument, she would be in my band," he wrote. "The independent patriotic spirit, attitude and soul of our forefathers are alive and well in Sarah." He concluded: "We who are driven to be assets to our families, communities and our beloved country connect with the principles that Sarah Palin embodies. We know that bureaucrats and, even more, Fedzilla, are not the solution; they are the problem. I'd be proud to share a moose-barbecue campfire with the Palin family anytime, so long as I can shoot the moose."
