Uh, I don’t really know where to begin with Kid Rock. He is generally irrelevant as a musician but is making a run at the Senate. Yes, the federal legislative body that helps run the country. He hasn’t announced an official campaign but is making campaign speeches at concerts and is already under investigation for illegal campaign finance practices. While performing a concert in Grand Rapids, Kid pulled out a podium bearing a modified presidential seal and gave a rhyming rocking stump speech that got his crowd going.
Between Kid Rock and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, we’re about to have a real geological government. Someone better hide all the scissors…
As much as I hate to say it, don’t discount this as an act. Yeah, sure, deadbeat dads should be better parents and people should work instead of exploiting benefits, but that isn’t much of a campaign. The whole thing boils down to “I have opinions and people should be more responsible.” Ok. Welcome to the club.
I will say that this is the most entertaining stump speech I have ever seen. This speech has everything: star spangled scarves, flag waving dancers in lab coats, prayers, tiny bowler hats that are too big for Kid Rock’s head…the list goes on and on.
Edit: Since publishing, the full video of the speech has been taken down from YouTube
