I’m ready for Kid Rock to finally be a Senator.

The rock star, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, threw the inaugural concert at Little Caesars Arena Tuesday night, and he brought some politics with him to the show.

He told the audience the following (transcription from TIME):

And if you wanna take a knee and sit there during our Star Spangled Banner, call me a racist because I’m not PC and think you have to remind me that black lives matter. Nazis. F–king bigots. And now again the KKK? I say f–k all you racists. Stay the hell away.

And I do believe it to be self evident, that we’re all created equal. I said it once, I’ll scream it again: I love black people. And I love white people, too. But neither as much as I love red, white and blue.

And if Kid Rock said it, it’s got some folks in disarray, wait ’til you hear Kid Rock for the President of the USA. Cause wouldn’t it be a sight to see, President Kid Rock in Washington DC. Standing on the desk in the Oval Office like a G. Holding my d–k ready to address the whole country.

I’d look them straight in the eyes, the eyes of the nation live on TV, and I’d say to them, ‘You ever met a motherf—er quite like me?'”

I’m not sure I’ve ever wanted something more than Kid Rock on the Senate floor. I can’t even begin to imagine how awesome the debates would be or him introducing himself by shouting, “My name is Kid Rock!” at the start of every vote. It’d be incredible.

He’s been floating the idea of running for office for months now, and it’s time for him to finally just get in the race. He’s a showman, an entertainer, and a man who loves America. It’s not the most traditional description of a politician, but it might be what we need.

As I’ve said before, Kid Rock is the closest we’re ever going to get to Kenny Powers, and I mean that as a serious compliment.

It might be a crazy idea, but I’ve always liked to live life on the edge. Do it for America Kid Rock, do it for me and all the other patriots across this nation.
