The true existential horror of Ted Nugent, Kid Rock and Sarah Palin’s visit to the White House

Every day is Halloween

So I’m too migrained-up to do a proper post today, so instead here are some pictures of Ted Nugent, Kid Rock and Sarah Palin visiting the White House earlier this week. Except creepier! I think these are closer to capturing the true existential horror of the visit than the official pics. Click the pics for slightly higher res versions.

Enjoy, I guess! And consider this an open thread.

Nope. Just… Nope. Seriously though, how is Kid Rock still famous? He’s just so… ew.

Last time I heard anything about Kid Rock, he was bragging about having more money than Beyonce. I don’t think so, Kid. I don’t think so.

Welcome to to the White Trash house!

Seriously, let’s just bulldoze the whitehouse and replace it with a giant cesspool. Nobody will notice at this point.

David, feel better! Spring is in the air, possibly along with impeachment, and that should help to cure any headache.

As for Sarah Palin — is she still in the public eye? It’s pretty shocking to compare her before & after photos. Fame has brought her cash but it doesn’t seem to have brought her happiness. And even the cash allegedly didn’t stick around. Boo effin’ hoo.

These images kinda remind me of Ralph Steadman’s drawings for the Hunter S. Thompson book, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. OK, maybe that’s a stretch, but what Mr. Steadman could do with these images…

I miss Hunter! I guess it’s for the best he never experienced the Cheeto Era, poor man.

Ugh, for me the most awful thing is that Mssrs. Rock and Nugent are both from my much-beloved home state of Michigan.

*crosses fingers and mutters, “please don’t be a douche, Bob Seger, please don’t be a douche”

Also, I haven’t been around as thoroughly lately as I have been at other times, does Scildfreja still visit these environs?

@Dreemr,

I don’t hold beautiful Michigan responsible for those two.

After all, my home state gave us Pence.

I haven’t seen the indomitable Scildfreja for a while…I hope she’s okay.

@David,

Feel better. Migraines suck.

Apparently Canada’s been putting alot more stock into AI systems.

Trump was born in the same borough as me, probably the same hospital. And I refuse to check and confirm that. I don’t need that knowledge…

Vox Day is from my home state. However, I refuse to claim Michelle Bachman because she’s actually from Iowa.

5 Things to Know About Stephanie Murphy, First Vietnamese-American Woman Elected to Congress

She is the first Vietnamese American woman elected to Congress.

Murphy is the first Vietnamese-American woman — and second ever Vietnamese-American person — elected Congress.

So much relief right now.

Kid Rock, Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin… for 100 points, can anyone name the date in history when ANY of those three had ANY public success???

ETA: and living proof of the adage that “the merit of what you stand FOR can many times be measured by who you find yourself standing WITH”…

ETATA: I’m from Kansas… home of Bob Dole, the Koch brothers and Governor Sam Brownshirt….

Well, my home state gave us Scott Pruitt, Jim Inhofe, and a host of other problems. But…I wasn’t actually born in Oklahoma, I was only raised there. Can I claim my birth state of California, instead?

Kid Rock successfully turned two iconic songs (Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London” and Lynyrd Skynrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama”) into one crappy one-or at least he sampled musical elements from both for his (“All Summer Long”). At any rate, it was very successful at being crappy.

Ted Nugent got the word “pussy” on the radio in 1977. I guess that’s an accomplishment?

Dumb question of the moment (since this is an open thread and all): does anyone know a good website or two that teaches/discusses battle strategies in Pokémon GO? I decided to knock down a local PoGO gym and claim it for Team Mystic, and it took me waaaaaay too long (approximately 45 minutes, give/take) to figure out how to take down the 2000+ CP Snorlax ruling the place in under 99 seconds with what I had available. (Three 1300-1800+ CP Eletrabuzzes pouring everything they got onto it worked out okay.)

Any suggestions for me to read up on the next time I decide to tackle a gym?

Ermm, Ted Nugent was once a “Rock Star” with the very well known band, the Amboy Dukes (One-hit Wonder? “Journey to the Center of the Mind”), then solo, then part of Damn Yankees.

Ted claimed later that he had no idea the “Journey..Center..Mind” song was about drugs, so he’s been failing at noticing what’s really going on around him for a while.

Whether any of that counts as success, I dunno, but I suspect he’s got enough money to keep talking for a longer time than I want to listen.

I was 12 when I first heard that song. It was clear to me that it was about drugs. So Ted was less sophisticated than a 12-year-old girl? Huh.

Oh wait. Look who wrote that druggy song:

Writer(s): Ted Nugent Steve Farmer

In the end “Journey to the Center of Your Mind” will be considered Nugent’s only positive contribution to world culture.

He was talking about Confederate dollars — his mattress is stuffed with them, and Beyonce has zilch.

I couldn’t name a website having never researched any (I just settle for the fun of trial and error), but I could tell you what’s worked for those annoying Snorlax and Blisseys (at least for me).

If you have an Espeon or Slowbro with Confusion as the first attack, they seem to work rather quickly sometimes times without the need for a 2nd Pokemon depending on level. With the tendency of Snorlax/Blissey’s fast attack to be Zen Headbutt (therefore not very effective), they can survive long enough to deal a good dent of damage if not finish first.

A good backup for the psychic is a mon with a strong fighting type fast attack, being normal type’s weakness. Rock Smash or Hidden Power make short work of whatever Espeon didn’t finish off.

That’s just my experience. Don’t know what your level is or what you have but I do know what a buttpain them Snorlaxen can be.
