Should Tea Party Endorse Kid Rock If He Runs For Senate?

Just call him Senator “American Badass.”

Musician Kid Rock confirmed on Twitter that he plans to run for a U.S. Senate seat from Michigan in 2018.

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, dropped the bombshell Wednesday afternoon when he announced: “I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real … The answer is an absolute YES.”

Rock linked to the website “KidRockForSenate.com” and told fans to stay tuned for “a major announcement in the near future.”

In 2012, Rock stumped for Mitt Romney for president (we’ll forgive him for that). In 2015, the “American Badass” rocker revealed he’s a fiscal Republican, but a social libertarian.

“I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues,” he told the Guardian. “I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister, I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.”

There have been rumors for months that Republicans in Michigan had been courting Kid Rock to run against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow. Rock’s Twitter announcement set off a flurry of skepticism among liberals, who said all this is a PR stunt.

That seems unlikely, since PR stunts are not exactly Rock’s style. He’s not Kim Kardashian or some C-list liberal celebrity who’s virtue-signaling for brownie points in Hollywood.

Some noted that Rock has not filed any paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, so technically, none of this is official yet. But given Kid Rock’s longtime interest in politics, a senate run would not be surprising.

Time will tell whether the news is real, but many Kid Rock supporters already loved the idea:

Hell Yaa. Rock On! 

"Not opposed to "gay" (homosexual) marriage??

Sounds like a Christian In Name Only (CINO), in other words, someone who makes up his own right and wrong. Better than an anarchist commie, but only by one degree.

"As an ordained Minister I don't look forward to marrying gay people, but I am not opposed to it."

Nuff for me.

By the way, who ordained him?

And then, this.  " I am no fan of abortion, but it's not up to a man to tell a woman what to do."

Once again, who ordained this guy?   Demons? Or is he just an idiot.

If the latter is the case then he would fit right in as a U.S. Senator.

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
