Photos: Ten most controversial quotes by Ted Nugent -- and his Tom Tancredo gun offer
Rocker/gun-rights fan Ted Nugent is backing Tom Tancredo for governor and has even authorized a fundraising letter in which donors are entered into a contest for a new AR-15. (See it below.)

After all, Texas gubernatorial hopeful Gregory Abbott has taken heat for campaigning with Nugent after the latter called President Barack Obama a "sub-human mongrel" -- and that's only one of his controversial quotes. Check out our top ten Nuge eyebrow-raisers, including one originally shared with Westword. Number 10:

This country should be ashamed. I wanna throw up.... Obama, he's a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun." -- Reportedly said onstage in August 2007. Number 9:
"What's a feminist anyways? A fat pig who doesn't get it often enough?" -- Featured in posts such as this one from Texas Theocracy Watch.
