Robert James Ritchie aka Kid Rock

So I just heard my first Kid Rock song. Okay, I’ve probably technically heard one before – I know he’s got a few big hits – but I only heard them in the background of something else. Anyway, and in other words, I’m not a fan…

That being said, I don’t dislike him in any way. There are a lot of musicians, actors, actresses, sports figures – whatever – who I’m not a fan of – because I don’t know anything about them. I can’t name a single Slayer song and I grew up in the 80s listening to “metal”. I only take in what I care to take in at any given time…

So… I don’t know if he actually has a chance in politics. I have no idea. I don’t live in Michigan. I’m not sure I can or even SHOULD care. Whatever. What I will say is this… I think Americans like him. Fat Americans. Skinny Americans. Black Americans. White Americans. Male Americans. Female Americans. I’m pretty sure every American who “knows” who he is – LIKES HIM.
