Facade: Another word that Ted Nugent doesn't understand

Isn't he supposed to be dead or in jail by now?

“The Pure Michigan campaign basically is a facade,” Nugent said during a telephone interview from Texas on the Lansing-based syndicated program, Michigan’s Big Show starring Michael Patrick Shiels.

Outdoors activities such as hunting, fishing and trapping are Michigan’s biggest tourist draw, said Nugent.

“How dare the Pure Michigan campaign not mention any of that because some hash bash hippie in charge of Michigan’s promotional campaigns is afraid to put a dead salmon or a dead grouse or a dead deer on the tourist brochure but will put para-gliding and tulip festivals on that brochure when no one is going to come to Michigan to go hang gliding or to go to the tulip festival.”

That is, Ted Nugent's idea of a successful tourism ad campaign goes to pains to incorporate pictures of dead animals. Also, psst ... no one tell Kenny Rogers that nobody attends Holland's tulip festival.

Ted Nugent is a self-important blowhard that no one should ever take seriously.

I have two posts about Ted
First, Ted Nugent, stochastic terrorist from a year ago.

Second, I pair him up with ICP in Second Year of Crazy Eddie's Motie News: Scary musical clowns from Detroit.  ICP comes off looking better.

Also, there is now a parody Pure Michigan ad that addresses Motormouth's concerns.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

Also, there are Pure Michigan ads about fishing
I found six while searching their YouTube account for fishing.

Here's the most recent, posted just last month.

Fishing | A Pure Michigan Summer
Published on Mar 18, 2013

With four Great Lakes, 11,000 inland lakes and hundreds of rivers and streams, Pure Michigan is an anglers dream with no end to the places to cast your line. With fresh water fish including trout, walleyes, salmon, perch, bass ready to bite, Michigan is home to the best catches a fishing trip can offer.
As usual, Motormouth shot his mouth off before asking any questions.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

I was inspired to turn my comments into a diary entry
