Before that attack on the GOP congressional baseball team practice on Wednesday, it seemed like nothing could bring this country together.  But now there's this: TED NUGENT has vowed to leave the hateful rhetoric behind. You know, like how he told PRESIDENT OBAMA to suck on his machine gun . . . or invited HILLARY CLINTON to straddle it?  Yeah, that's not happening anymore. In a radio interview yesterday he said, quote, "I'm not going to engage in that kind of hateful rhetoric anymore . . ."I just can't use those harsh terms.  I cannot and I will not and I encourage even my friends (slash) enemies on the left in the Democrat, liberal world that we have got to be civil to each other . . . we have got to be more respectful to the other side." He also promised to, quote, "avoid anything that can be interpreted as condoning or referencing violence."
