Kid Rock may be running for the Senate — or not.
Right now, it’s difficult to know whether his recent tweet about a website “kidrockforsenate.com” is more publicity than serious political. He says it is. And who knows — it very well could be. After all, Al Franken of “Saturday Night Live” fame made it.
Either way, Kid Rock should go for it — and not simply because he’s a conservative. He really needs to blast his hit “American Bad Ass” on the campaign trail. We all really need to hear that.
But think about it from the pragmatic for a second.
He won’t have to worry about musical artists complaining about using his songs on the campaign trail. He won’t have to deal with the headaches of media tongue-waggers who titter away about the bands who outright refuse to play at his fundraisers.
He can just play his own stuff.
It’s like it’s fated.
“I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real … kidrockforsenate.com,” he tweeted. “The answer is an absolute YES.”
The guy’s a Trump man — he supported President Donald Trump’s candidacy and later, alongside Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent, visited the White House. He’s expressed interest in politics on previous occasions. And he’s creating a buzz early in the game.
Debbie Stabenow would be his Democratic contender, if he made it that far. And she’s been in office for a while but even she wouldn’t be able to compete with slogans like these, from Kid Rock’s webpage: Kid Rock, “Are You Scared?” Kid Rock, “Party to the People.” Kid Rock, “I’ll Rock the Party.” Kid Rock, “Pimp of the Nation.” And, a personal favorite, Kid Rock, “In Rock We Trust.”
