U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said in a tweet Thursday that rocker Ted Nugent, known in recent years for some outrageous political comments, should apologize for calling President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel.”

Nugent has come under fire this week for his remarks, and on Thursday, Paul said in a tweet that the remark was “offensive.”

“Ted Nugent’s derogatory description of President Obama is offensive and has no place in politics. He should apologize,” Paul tweeted.

Nugent made the remark last month to guns.com, but it has gained more attention as the singer of “Cat Scratch Fever” and “Stranglehold” has hit the campaign trail with Republican Texas gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott.

During the 2012 presidential campaign, Nugent earned himself a visit from the Secret Service after he said he would be “dead or in jail” if Obama won another term.

    “Rand Paul disagrees that President Obama is a subhuman mongrel.” In a sane world, this would not be newsworthy in the least. But Rand tweeted it, so Sam “the Republican stenographer” Youngman has to blog about it. This website is really turning into a pathetic joke.

    Senator Harpo tries to act sane for the media. This hot news snippet is not meant to take the place of Youngman’s usual puff piece on Mitch (Granny Clampett) McConnell. That stenography will soon follow.

    When in doubt, I whip it out! I got me rock-n-roll band, its a free fall! YEAAHH! A free for all!

    Seriously Ted, that was a stupid comment. Everyone knows that if anyone is a “subhuman mongrel” , then it is the vats majority of us who don’t worship at Obama’s “greatness” according to the president and his minions.
