Kid Rock Might Be Running for Senate

The article I link to claims it is for certain but it is also on Fox News so who actually knows, right?  Still, there is a website and Rock says we should stay tuned for a “major” announcement so, for the sake of this blog post, let’s just assume he’s actually planning on running.

I mean, the Kid (I call him a kid because that is his name) can run.  That’s the way of our Democracy.  You don’t actually have to be an experienced politician to run for office.  You’d think that it might be some sort of problem that someone applying for the job doesn’t have any actual qualifications but in politics, many people consider that a plus.

He would be the first male Senator with long hair so that would be breaking a barrier, right?

That is precisely why many of us are forced to say things like “President Trump.”  My fingers hurt just typing that.

So Mr. Rock is going to run for the Senate.  Probably.  Or he’s using the whole thing to help sell his next album (for which I would have grudging respect).

As a musician, I have to say I would appreciate another Senator who is not a lawyer.  I’ve always appreciated that Al Franken is the only comedian in the Senate and I’m pleased that I have someone representing my interests.

I’m not sure about Kid Rock, though, and it isn’t just because he’s a conservative.  Rather, it is because I don’t think the gives two fucks about anything but himself.  And in that, he and Donald Trump have a lot in common.
