Tonight’s uninvited guest will be…

Whenever you try to throw a party, invariably there is always that guy who brings someone that nobody wants there. The creepy guy, the rando, the guy who drinks everyone else’s beer, the guy who is overly inappropriate and makes all the girls uncomfortable so they leave, there is always an uninvited guest brought by an invited guest who should have known better. This is the situation President Obama will be facing during tonight’s State of the Union address. Apparently, each congressperson gets a plus-one, and the guy who will be driving the girls away tonight has been invited by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas).

Ted Nugent is attending Tuesday’s State of the Union address as the guest of Rep. Steve Stockman. “He speaks for millions of Americans who own guns and do not support the president’s anti-gun agenda,” said Stockman spokesman Donny Ferguson. Neither the Texas Republican nor the rocker are fans of President Obama; the Secret Service had a little sit-down with Nugent last year after he told an NRA convention that he’d be “dead or in jail” if the president was re-elected.

Members of Congress are each allowed to invite one guest to the annual speech; many Democrats are bringing gun violence victims. Nugent won’t be packing Tuesday night, only firing soundbites. “I’m sure he’ll be fun — and respectable,” said Ferguson.

Stockman, I assume, will not be invited back.

    At least Ted may bring a little excitement to what will otherwise be a boring evening
