SENATOR ROCK – We’ve had a wrestler and a bodybuilder/actor as governors, a comedian (unfunny) in the Senate, and a reality TV star as President, so it’s not like the cheapening of the public life in America is a new phenomenon. Is Kid Rock (Robert Ritchie) that much worse?

“One thing is for sure though…The democrats are ‘shattin’ in their pantaloons’ right now…and rightfully so!,” Richie said in the statement. “We will be scheduling a press conference in the next 6 weeks or so to address this issue amongst others, and if I decide to throw my hat in the ring for US Senate, believe me… it’s game on mthrfkers.”

The poll released by Trafalgar Group shows that indeed it will be “game on” if Ritchie runs. The musician leads among potential Republican candidates with 49.62 percent. In second is “undecided” with 28.10 percent.

In a general election match-up, Democratic incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow leads with 43.37 percent and Ritchie is at 41.17 percent. However, when including voters who are leaning towards either candidate, Ritchie leads with 48.6 percent and Stabenow is at 46.09 percent.

It might be the first recorded use of the word “motherf***er” in a potential candidate’s official statement. The Apocalypse cannot come too soon.
