#KidRockForSenate: Leftists Apoplectic Over Musician’s Pro-Hard Work, Transparent Govt Message

Remember 2012 Obama’s “You Didn’t Build That” communist mantra? While it didn’t go over well with hard-working small-business owners struggling to stay afloat in his intentionally-anemic economy, it nevertheless didn’t keep him from winning a second term, much to the chagrin of Americans like me. Fast forward to 2016, when Trump’s Make America Great Again slogan resonated with voters even in the bluest of states, winning him an unexpected four-year term in our White House.

Why am I bringing this up? Because in case you haven’t heard, Republican musician Kid Rock, aka Robert James Ritchie, appears to be running for the United States Senate in blue-collar country, specifically Michigan, his home state:

And, his chances for a victory appear good. Here’s why:

Senator Debbie Stabenow, the Democrat whose held the seat since 2001, is deeply underwater in job approval ratings:

She’s done next to nothing for her hard-working constituents since her initial election, and Michiganders seem to be noticing. And so is Kid Rock, who yesterday jumped onto Twitter to spread this message:

Isn’t that refreshing? I’m imagining floor debates between Rock and elitist bi-coastal Democrat senators. It’d be Pay-Per-View, bucket-of-popcorn worthy. But I digress.

Naturally, the perpetually offended Leftists took…offense:


Uh, working hard, demanding your tax dollars be spent wisely, and expecting a transparent federal government for $2,000, Alex?

Well, while your Twitter handle is appropriate, Some Jerk, you’re otherwise fact-challenged. Let’s explain reductions-in-growth-rates to Mr. Doomsday Naysayer:

Truth bomb dropped! Target destroyed.

So. Is Kid Rock qualified to hold office? I don’t have the answer to that question. But he loves this country. He “gets” Middle America and speaks its language naturally, unlike the Democrats who gratuitously drop F-Bombs in a fruitless effort to appeal to Rust-Belt Americans whom they stereotype. Plus Kid’s an advocate for working hard, earning a paycheck, and keeping as much of it as possible, the message far too many Republicans have abandoned. And he’s been politically active for many years. And isn’t our Congress supposed to be made up of citizen legislators? Not a bunch of out-of-touch blue-bloods with fancy degrees and large bank accounts procured on the backs of hard-working Americans? If nothing else, Rock’s got his messaging right, and knows how to tweak the Left. And we know how that pro-America, pro-worker rhetoric worked out for Donald Trump. And here’s the glorious part: If their frantic emails to donors are any indication, the Democrats are flipping out over Kid’s apparent willingness to jump into the D.C. swamp. Exhibit A:

Yes. And when StandsWithCommies is on the warpath, you know they’re taking Rock seriously.

Although they still don’t get the appeal of Trump, let alone “the next Donald Trump,” they should be concerned: The Democrats have no message, they have no fresh ideas, and they have no leadership. Rock has all three. And musical talent to boot, which he promises he’ll use in promoting his campaign. So it comes down to this: If the hard-working, patriotic voters in Michigan turn out in November of 2018 like they did last fall—should Kid be serious about his run, and it appears he is—Stabenow’s days may very well be numbered. Here’s hoping so. Because were my choice either a woman who’s firmly standing in the way of job creation, lower taxes, ObamaCare repeal, and national security, or an America-loving musician, I’ll take the expletive-dropping, cigar-smoking songster who loves his country, her citizenry and her military, and small, unobtrusive government any day of the week. Because we did build this, and it should be ours for the keeping.

    Well, he’s an American, right? Ergo, he’s qualified!
    Is he the best choice? Different question. 🙂

    And since al franken set the bar pretty damn low (not to mention obummer) as to what it takes to be “qualified” I’d say hes eminently more qualified than either of those two.. I hope he is serious, and best of luck to him!

  • OC says:

    If he doesn’t have his pants hangin’ hallway down his backside will help tremendously.

      Lol! Something tells me there’s a highly restrictive dress code in the Senate! And we know Paul Ryan is hyper-fixated on the House’s version. You know, working for the People, he is.
