Over the weekend, an Instagram photo posted by Ted’s wife, Shemane Nugent, showed off what the Nuge may have looked like if he would have joined the young republicans years ago instead of embarking on a legendary musical career. As you can clearly see from the photo above, Ted Nugent appears to be all grown up now and sporting a conservative new haircut that could, perhaps, lend itself to the fashion of the presidency.

Recent reports indicate that 64-year-old Nugent is seriously considering trying to take over the White House in 2016. “He’s talked about it before,” said Shemane Nugent in an article in the Washington Post. “But this time he seems more serious. People are constantly asking him to run.”
