Finally, a Ted Nugent essay on Sarah Palin's work ethic

The Time 100 list, the ne plus ultra of news-free charticles, is a guilty pleasure for me, even if this year's list somehow leaves Ke$ha out of the Artists section.* If nothing else, though, this year's list gives us an essay on Sarah Palin by Ted Nugent. And unlike the essays written by people with much busier schedules, it reads like the Motor City Madman flipped open his Toughbook and wrote it.

If Sarah Palin played a loud, grinding instrument, she would be in my band. The independent patriotic spirit, attitude and soul of our forefathers are alive and well in Sarah. In the way she lives, what she says and how she dedicates herself to make America better in these interesting times, she represents the good, while exposing the bad and ugly. She embraces the critical duty of we the people by participating in this glorious experiment in self-government. The tsunami of support proves that Sarah, 46, represents what many Americans know to be common and sensible. Her rugged individualism, self-reliance and a herculean work ethic resonate now more than ever in a country spinning away from these basics that made the U.S.A. the last best place.

More evidence that Palin's decision to ditch the tough work of governing Alaska for a more glamorous (and well-compensated) job as a conservative pundit has been validated by the conservative base.

*This is a joke.**

**Sort of.
