Sounds good so far....

If Meghan McCain didn't have a famous last name, nobody would give a crap about what she says, because it's just so insanely vapid and dumb. Same thing as with any of the Trump kids.

tax cuts, guns and strippers

AKA worship of the wealthy, fear and misogyny
 
2017-07-16 06:12:35 PM  
Sorry Meghan,

You've lost touch with your party.

The new platform is tax-cuts, guns, strippers, and KGB agents.

First this idiot , now Caitlyn Jenner. Since Trump did it, you morons think anyone with name recognition is fit for high office?
fark off, you farking boobs.

Here, here.

Ugh. Should I be directing my scorn at Media Matters or Fox for this?

Good to know he supports single moms.

Well, lets be honest. Reagan started it. But he was also a Governor.

They keep chasing Reagan

Kid Rock for Senate, the official candidate of Brawndo!
 
2017-07-16 07:07:56 PM  
I'd I lived in his state I wouldn't not be voting for him because he's famous. I'd not be voting for him because he's an absolute moron.

The party of family values and GOD seems a bit confused these days.
 
2017-07-16 07:09:58 PM  
He'd win if he ran, the dude is insanely popular everywhere in this state.  Only guy that would have a chance against him is Eminem.
 
2017-07-16 07:18:27 PM  
I had a favorable opinion of Kid Rock in 2013 when he took on scalpers so he could let the poorest of his fans still get reasonably priced tickets.  Then the idiot endorsed Trump.

He's a guy from Michigan who flies a "Rebel flag", that tells you all you need to know.
 
2017-07-16 08:16:59 PM  
I look forward to seeing how Kid Rock explains away the fact that his best-known number is about a white Michigander's dreams of fleeing the state for what he believes California to be---the sort of place where the women are all really desperate "aspiring actresses" and a man with no other prospects can arrive on Friday and be living high on the hog on the proceeds of prostitution by Monday.
 
2017-07-16 08:19:37 PM  
It's always fun to see the religious right torture logic to support these amoral assholes.
 
2017-07-16 08:21:26 PM  
Challenge: Get Kid Rock to provide details of his platform positions.
Difficulty: Without using the word f*ck.
 
2017-07-16 08:32:13 PM  
I really can't talk too much shiat about this, since my Senator spent most of the '80s making jokes about smoking weed. On the other hand, he spent most of the late '90s and '00s writing insightful, accurate, and interesting political commentary.

Kid Rock has not done that.
 
2017-07-16 08:33:11 PM  
I doubt voters will elect a man who once set up an escort service in a Four Seasons.

I just finished Giant of the Senate the other day. Good stuff.
 
2017-07-16 08:52:56 PM  
They just elected a dumbass kid to the presidency.  Hell, why not a few more to piss up Congress.

Can we draft Vermin Supreme to run against him?

That's jacked up.  I mean if he was from Ohio I could understand it, because Ohio is a Confederate state.

Franken also graduated from an Ivy League school before his foray into comedy.
Kid Rock barely graduated high school.

It's white trash cosplay from him. He grew up solidly upper middle class, yet spent decades trying to convince people he was raised in a trailer park.
 
2017-07-16 09:54:36 PM  
No chance, that's too intellectual for the modern day gop.
 
2017-07-16 09:54:47 PM  
Why pretend the Republican party has a shred of dignity left? I mean they got Trump elected. They ran David Duke. They could run on a white power platform
 
2017-07-16 09:56:11 PM  
I can no longer even formulate my feelings of disrespect for conservatives.

I literally can't even.

Debbie Stabenow won her last election 58.8% to 38% for the republican. He's had past substance abuse problems with arrests for alcohol and assault. He'll fare well with the trolls and the MAGA diehards, but he'll be a hard sell for the people that actually vote, old people.

His place on Torch Lake is pretty cool.

And I appreciate him lowering the price of his beers at his concerts (I had nothing better to do and I wanted to drink beer) but...

Yeah. Let's not do the Senate thing.
 
2017-07-16 10:07:08 PM  
Uh, Meghan? For your consideration:

- The fact that you are not a paraplegic does not qualify you for the Olympic hundred-yard dash.
- The ability to avoid shiatting yourself in public does not put you in the running for a Tony award.
- Being able to count to five will not net you a Fields Medal.
- Being "better than Trump" is not the only qualification you want in a President.

Also, as a Michigander transplant, can someone explain to me why the hell confederate flags are a thing up here? Especially the both part of the lower peninsula?

Because they keep saying Heritage not Hate and all that but I'm missing the heritage part.
 
2017-07-16 10:08:58 PM  
I'm more and more convinced that there is a huge rip in the space-time continuum.

Hey, I live I Ohio, and I resent...ah who am I kidding.  I've come across more rebel flags in rural NE Ohio than I did in southern  Missouri.
 
2017-07-16 10:09:17 PM  
And the supposedly "evangelical" Republicans will happily vote for him, because he's not a Democrat.

That's just a tiny part of why Republican is the new word for traitor. They'll sell out any principle, sell out their country and their countrymen, as long as they can go against a democrat.

It's not uncommon and often overlooked. for example, south western Indiana is more "south" than anywhere in Alabama.

/embarrassed I know that - and I claim Texas as "home."

What the hell does he even want to get out of this? Is he deluded enough to think he can help the state of MI by being a senator? Good luck moron
