TED NUGENT For Governor?

TED NUGENT is reportedly considering a bid for the governor of Michigan in 2006.

Following the recent election of Jennifer Granholm as Michigan governor, radio station WOOD-AM in Grand Rapids asked its listeners who they'd like to see oppose her in four years. The survey is still going on, but Nugent has been named in about 90 percent of the responses every day, beating out others such as speaker of the Michigan House Rick Johnson and former Lieutenant Governor Dick Posthumus.

"I've always taken my 'We The People' obligations to heart as an activist American for quality of life upgrade," Nugent told Launch. "I've got three years to think about it, but there is no doubt the status quo needs to be tipped on its bureaucratic ass. I'm definitely the guy for that job."

"I'm flattered that the Michigan citizenry grasps my sincerity," Nugent added. "I have always celebrated my 'We The People' activism. Maybe it's time to take it to the next level. The status quo system of politics sucks. Maybe it's time for an upheaval. Call me Ted 'Upheaval' Nugent. We'll see what happens."
