Ted Nugent
Soundtrack, Superbad

“ This dry wit is actually a former speech writer for Nixon and Ford who then became an actor. He is a lawyer and extremely intelligent, which is why he had a game show where folk tried to see if they could match his knowledge.

“ The Governator told us in a speech at a GOP national Convention that he listened to Richard Nixon give a speech right after he came to America and knew that the political philosophy of Nixon was what he believed.

“ Who else would be the number one Hollywood actor to get involved in conservative politics. His career as Governor of California, President, elder statesman of the Right has so eclipsed his earlier life as an actor that people who complain about Hollywood actors probably have forgotten he was one. ” - SweetHotAngel
