We Kid You Not
Foul-mouthed white trash singer Kid Rock (a.k.a. Robert Ritchie) may be best known for his raunchy, low brow music, his affinity for fighting, and his party hardy lifestyle with celebrities and sex tapes. Naturally, he's a Rethuglican, who's supported both Willard "Mittens" Romney and neo-fascist demagogue Donald "Rump" Trump, who recently had him, deranged gun-fondling draft dodger Ted "Crap My Pants" Nugent and Alaska's grifter queen Sarah "Winky" Palin to the White (Supremacist) House for a photo op.
This musical carnival act is apparently interested in running for the Senate in 2018 against Dem incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow, or at least he's looking to make some money and notoriety off of it as a stunt. He's already offering "campaign" swag on his "campaign" website. It's likely that this clown would pick up a significant number of mouthbreather, nihilist, burn-it-down votes that also went for Rump, who wasn't stopped by the Access Hollywood tape or any of his slurs against disabled people, Mexican-Americans, or his overall vulgarity or unfitness for the position.
The fact that the Michigan Rethuglican Party might be receptive to the thought of this moron being their candidate speaks volumes about them and their "family values." Public service, to them, is a joke and they'd run a bucket of dog waste if they think they'd win with it. Perhaps if "Rock" makes it that far, he could use one or more of his songs as a campaign theme: "Fuck You Blind," "You Never Met A Motherfucker Quite Like Me," or "Blow Me," all of which would perfectly capture the state of degeneracy of the Rethuglican Party that both Rump and Rock represent so boldly.
