So, the "dismissal" of the Ted Nugent cr*pping his pants story is because a reporter

from a "questionable" media outlet was "gullible", and so the source is not credible, and the story is "undetermined"?

http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/nugent.asp

"Questioned about that account during a subsequent interview with the UK's Independent newspaper, Nugent maintained he had made up the story and fed it to a gullible High Times reporter"

Hmm ... I remember when the National Enquirer was regarded as a joke ... but they won the Pulitzer Prize, exposing a Democrat ... and thus got "credibility" ...

1. So, the bottom line is that Ted Nugent isn't a reputable source of information...

... even if it's information about Ted Nugent.

2. It doesn't matter

Rather he did it or not, he thought it would make him sound cool to shit and piss his pants to get out of the military draft...he could have done like many others and signed up for school or gone to Canada...

3. What about the Detroit Free Press July 15, 1990 story

that most people attribute when referring to Nugent crapping and pissing his pants for days to avoid serving in the military? I didn't see any references to that article int he Snopes report.

In that 1990 interview with the Free Press and from information collected from the Chickenhawk Web site, Nugent told about how he avoided the draft: "He claims that 30 days before his Draft Board Physical, he stopped all forms of personal hygiene. The last 10 days he ingested nothing but junk food and Pepsi, and a week before his physical, he stopped using the bathroom altogether, virtually living inside his pants caked with excrement and urine. That spectacle won Nugent a deferment."
