According to MSNBC, Mitt Romney surrogate Ted Nugent isn't backing down from his idiotic statements:

During an interview with conservative radio show host Dana Loesch, Nugent says that he is "a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally."

"There are some power abusing corrupt monsters in our government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth," he added.

Nobody has really pressed Romney about why he felt the need to recruit Nugent. The aging "rock star" has a long history of bigoted statements, and Romney's not being held accountable for them.
