After Nugent's Violence-Tinged Words Against Obama, Secret Service Watching Him

While the mainstream media may be more focused on the absurdity that is Ann Romney mom-gate, there's another media scandal that's actually attracting the attention of the Secret Service.

Our own Adele Stancovered the story yesterday, reminding us that the Romney campaign has cozied up to "singer" Ted Nugent, who has a history of Limbaugh-level awful comments and recently said"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

Apparently, the words did not go unheeded. From NYMag's Dan Amira:

 A spokesman for the Secret Service tells us, "We are aware of it, and we'll conduct an appropriate follow up."

Politico got a similar statement.

And yet, the media remains more interested in reviving the mommy wars and combining them with empty electoral speculation. I'm shocked.
