Beginning to wonder

July 23, 2012 - Jim Anderson
Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson is welcoming “longtime friend” Ted Nugent to his Republican U.S. Senate campaign.

In announcing an upcoming rally with the outspoken Michigan rocker, Thompson said, “I am proud to have Ted Nugent, a relentless conservative icon, as part of my U.S. Senate campaign team.”

And just what does it take, these days, to be a “relentless conservative icon?”

Here’s what Nugent wrote a few weeks ago in the Washington Times, reacting to the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act:

“Because our legislative, judicial and executive branches of government hold the 10th Amendment in contempt, I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War.”

Wow. That wasn’t some stray, off-the-cuff remark. It was a reflective, committed position.

“I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War.”

And Gov. Thompson is proud to have Nugent’s support?

... In seeking the nomination of the political party of Abraham Lincoln.
