Kid Rock for the Senate? Don’t Be Daft

I’ll never understand the celebrity worship in this country. Someone makes a few movies, stars in a television show or has some hit songs and all of a sudden people are falling prostrate before the celebrity and swearing total emotional devotion. Celebrity worship played a role in Donald Trump being elected president and even he seemed to be aware of it, saying that he could shoot someone on 5th avenue and he wouldn’t lose any supporters.

And now there is a lot of talk about electing Kid Rock (real name Robert Ritchie) to the U.S. Senate from the state of Michigan. Seriously? Why? What is it about this man that appeals to people, politically? When word first broke of his possible candidacy, I was stunned at the number of people who seem to think it’s a great idea. Even Texas Governor Greg Abbott seemed excited about the possibility of Senator Ritchie.

IT’S HAPPENING! New poll has Kid Rock leading Debbie Stabenow. THIS will shake up Washington. #tcot #PJNET @TexasGOP https://t.co/HtRWFe5U8m
