    Ted Nugent Goes Off on CBS Reporter—See Explosive Encounter Now!

    Like his album of the same name, Ted Nugent is a "habitual offender" all right—with his mouth.

    When a CBS journalist suggested the "Cat Scratch Fever" rocker wasn't the political moderate he claimed to be—especially considering his recent controversial comments, including that he'd rather be "dead or in jail" if President Obama wins reelection—Nugent responded with a lewd sexual come-on.

    Another day, another Nugent controversy.

    "You are many things, but not moderate," stated reporter Jeff Glor.

    The already agitated conservative musician—a fervent supporter of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney—subsequently went ballistic. But in an attempt to defend his so-called moderate views, he made a rather colorful and extreme suggestion of his own.

    "I'm an extremely loving and passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I'm a damned nice guy...and if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I'll s--k your d--k," shouted the 63-year-old Nugent.

    He then turned to a female producer off camera and added: "Or I'll f--k you, how's that sound?"

    Way to keep it classy, Ted.

    During the sit-down, Nugent also weirdly described his encounter with Secret Service agents as "adorable" when they interviewed him regarding what many perceived to be an implied threat against Obama.

    Additionally, the crooner acknowledged he was "let down" that "political correctness" has put him on bad footing with the Army, which due to his remarks about the Commder-in-Chief, canceled his concerts he hoped to do for America's armed forces, one of his core, er, constituencies.

    "I'm a perfect human being. I stumble perfectly. But I also aspire to and accomplish a perfect standing up, dusting off in that arena and continue on," said Nugent, adding that by the end of his life, "I will better mankind, I will better the environment, I will better America."

    And no doubt, he can start by bettering himself.

    The Romney campaign responded to the uproar by issuing a statement saying "divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the aisle it comes from."

    As for Nugent, at the urging of his wife he apologized for his outburst to the female producer. He also phoned Glor the next day and told him that after the interview he was rushed to a hospital for a kidney stone, which may have contributed to his unruly behavior.

    When asked for comment about his health, Nugent's camp had this to say.

    "We are able to confirm that Mr. Ted Nugent was hospitalized directly following his CBS This Morning interview for treatment of a kidney stone," " his rep tells E! News. "It had been bothering him all day, but he was unaware of the severity until he was admitted to the hospital. Mr. Nugent has fully recovered and has not missed a performance as a result."
