*Strong Language Alert!
Kid Rock, a potential candidate for the U.S. Senate, is no shrinking violet, nor is he one for living a mundane life and given today’s political climate, those attributed are likely to serve him well.
After stating that “it’s game on mthrfkers,” while announcing he was creating a 501(c)(4) non-profit group to promote voter registration, the popular recording artist took it a step further Sunday on social media.
…which played well with his supporters, to the angst of Democrats!

Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, is pictured aboard “Rock Force One,” as one social media user dubbed the plane, flipping two middle fingers, which is what millions of Americans would like to do to inept politicians in Washington, D.C.
Folks who will gladly embrace a little authenticity.
As for the “babes” on the plane, Twitchy.com responded to the tweet below, saying — tongue-in-cheek? — the male-to-female ratio on the plane “means Mr. Rock is the GOP candidate best positioned to take on Dems and their phony #WarOnWomen nonsense.”

For those who dismiss the rocker, a new poll by the Trafalgar Group shows him leading incumbent Democratic Sen. Deborah Stabenow 48.6 percent to 46.1 percent, based on a sampling of 1,708 likely voters.
“A general election with Kid Rock and Stabenow could be close and fun to watch,” senior strategist Robert Cahaly said in a statement. “The debates would truly be ‘the greatest show on Earth’ and the uncensored version could be a pay-per-view blockbuster.”
Here’s a sampling of responses, pro and con, to Kid Rock’s latest social media offering — and for those who ridicule him, bear in mind his estimated net worth is $80 million:
