Senator Rock?

Postby bignflnut » Thu Jul 13, 2017 10:57 am

Musician Kid Rock has announced his bid for the U.S. Senate in Michigan.

In a tweet Wednesday, Rock, whose birth name is Robert James Ritchie, wrote that the website “KidRockForSenate.com” was real and to stay tuned for “a major announcement in the near future.”


If a man is over 40, can he be "Kid" anything (yes, even "Kid Poker")?

Remember that the US Senate currently sports a comedian from SNL and the POTUS has prominently appeared on WWF/WWE.
A former wrestling star was once the governor of Minnesota, and another aspires to the Presidency in 2020.

Lee Greenwood could not be reached for comment.
James Trafficant's corpse, however, wheezed "Beam me up, Scotty", when we pushed on it's belly.

I don't know. It would be rather interesting to see him in office. :twisted:

Don't forget the union leader and host of "Death Valley Days" that became POTUS.

During an April 13, 2013, interview, then-CNN host Piers Morgan asked Kid Rock if he owned “a lot of guns” and he responded, “Yes, tons.” Morgan then asked if Kid Rock was safe with his guns, to which he responded, “Yes.” Morgan then appeared to search for a flaw he could exploit by asking, “Why do you trust 315 million other Americans to be safe with them?”

Kid Rock simply smiled and said, “‘Cause I got one.”


There's an article on Breitbart "What Senator Kid Rock Might Mean for the Second Amendment", the previous was an excerpt.

Nugent is slacking

Can't wait to see people like George Takai vs Kid Rock in Senate hearings.

One thing is for sure though…The democrats are 'sh***in’ in their pantaloons' right now…and rightfully so

Bring back pantaloons and knickerbockers!

The Nuge, who I said was slacking (as he continues his decades of concerts), has chimed in:
In a Newsmax TV interview this week, Nugent claimed that “some goofball” in the Michigan Republican Party pulled the idea “out of their a--.”

“My friend Bob Ritchie never thought, never hinted, never mentioned, never gave any consideration whatsoever to running for public office,” said Nugent, a native of Metro Detroit.

“That the GOP and the media continue to milk this nonsense is one of the most embarrassing chapters for the Republican Party. Somebody write this down: Kid Rock ain’t running for squat.”


Is "goofball" still allowed? Doesn't that offend someone?

It's alright to offend if you are offending Republicans or conservatives.

Kid Rock is ending months of speculation about a possible Senate bid, reportedly saying, ---- no, I’m not running for Senate.”

“Are you ----ing kidding me? Who couldn’t figure that out?” the “All Summer Long” singer said on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show on Tuesday, according to The Detroit News.
