Like H.L. Mencken on meth

And I mean that in a good way.

Kurt Schlichter, taking the chatter about Kid Rock's interest in political office as his theme, pours another cauldron of scalding obloquy on the heads of our self-appointed ruling class:
The news that Southern-fried rock/rapper Kid Rock will be running for some timeserving Dem hack’s Senate seat in Michigan should make every normal American smile and spill a 40 to his homies. The future Senator Rock deserves your eager support for two critical reasons: First, it will drive the liberals insane. Second, it will make George Will and the rest of Team Fredocon soil themselves.
Once the Progressive State has finally triumphed, and I inevitably find myself mounting the steps to the gallows (condemned, say, for using the wrong pronoun to refer to our first non-binary multiple-gendered president), my last act will be to chuckle over some long remembered and cherished Kurt Schlichter column - possibly this one.

Kid Rock? Why not? I'd vote for him before I'd vote for the likes of Kamala Harris, or Joe Biden, or any RINOs.

On the one hand, yet another celebrity running for a national office?

On the other hand, the bar has been dropping for years. Franken merely followed a trend.

On the gripping hand ... ... enraging those intellectual snobs does my heart much good.
