The update on Ted Nugent that I opened the show with came courtesy of Daily Kos. Bill Schmalfeldt, with way too much time on his hands, actually found Courtney Love’s confession that “one of the first times” she had oral sex was with the Nuge, when she was 12 YEARS OLD! Holy fucking pedophile!
This intrepid blogger actually waded through a blog called MikesFriggin.com – some other poor soul who actually writes about what was said on the Howard Stern show each day, wrote this on March 23, 2004:
Courtney Love phoned into the Howard Stern Show on Monday before eventually coming into the studio where she made the shocking allegation that one of the first times she had oral sex was with Ted Nugent. She said she was young and she didn’t want to say exactly how old she was, but eventually confessed she was 12-year-old — which would have made Nugent approximately 28 years old at the time. The New York Post attempted to contact Nugent for a response but was unsuccessful. Moderators at Nugent’s official forum deleted the only thread asking about the topic as evidenced by the forum’s search giving a file not found error for the matched thread. She added it was a long time ago and she didn’t even have breasts yet.
Eeeew. And as the mother of a 12-year old daughter, let me add, PERVERT!!
Then, we moved on to the other not-so-smart ALEC, this one the American Legislative Executive Council. I learned almost everything I know about them via the brilliant website ALECexposed.org – a collaboration between the Center for Media & Democracy and The Nation with everything you’d ever want to know about ALEC and more! This morning, CMD executive director Lisa Graves joined me on the show to talk about the many corporations and organizations who have pulled out of ALEC in the past week or so, and the reports that say that ALEC has “dismantled” the “task force” that was responsible for foisting its sickening Stand Your Ground, voter suppression, jail privatization and more legislation, and what it all means.
In the second hour, after an update about yesterday’s Yes Men hoax on Bank of America(!), John Fugelsang joined in for a visit too…
And that’s it for this week. Talk to you Monday, radio or not!
