How can Ted Nugent be such an asshole yet write a song like “Stranglehold”

As the years go by, songs, like a fine wine or whiskey get better with age. One song I’ve noticed over the years that has gotten better and better is “Stranglehold” by Ted Nugent. Though every time I listen to it, I just can’t help but think of how big of an asshole he is. How can this guy write such a great song, yet be such a douche? This song gets me every time it’s on the radio or in a movie. That riff is just so damn good. It’s got such an awesome groove, and is the perfect driving song. Someone please tell me how these two can make sense.
