Legendary rocker and die-hard conservative Ted Nugent says the Republican Party has become so ineffectual it is virtually powerless to push a conservative agenda and fight Democratic policy.

"They've absolutely have dropped the ball. It's like I told Mitt Romney, man, you can't bring a doily to a gun fight. Come on, stand up for something. This is a culture war," Nugent told Newsmax TV's Steve Malzberg in the first of a two-part interview.

"Republicans have absolutely insulted us worse than the Democrats. You expect a Chihuahua to nibble on your ankle, you don't expect a Rhodesian ridgeback to nibble on your ankle.

"And so the Rhodesian ridgeback has turned into a little puppy mongrel, I've got to tell you."

Nugent, whose smash hits include "Cat Scratch Fever and "Journey to the Center of the Mind," complained that the executive, the legislative, and judicial branches of government have transformed into "one big gang."

"We are absolutely shattered.... I can't tell the Crips from the Bloods here. Yes, the whole system," he told Malzberg.

"We can't trust our government. The triad of sheer hell in the world today in America is the government out of control, the media out of control for the most part, and academia, they're all one big leftist gang."
