You Think Politics Is Silly Now….Just You Wait!
A couple of decades ago I got chuckle out of the fact the Sonny Bono had been elected to Congress from the San Diego area…..I couldn’t see “I Got You babe” as a Congressman.
Then last year another chuckle was produced when I watched this country vote Donald Trump into the office of the presidency.
I though then the our politics would become one game show after another…and so far I have not been disappointed.
I even asked myself if it was possible for our politics to get more silly then it is now……
I just had to ask that question….and by god I got my answer…..yes it can get sillier and even worse than it is today…..
Why would I say that?
Then came the news……
Kid Rock has announced on Twitter that he’ll be throwing his fedora in the ring for Michigan’s 2018 senate seat. While some find his bid to be “pimp of the nation” humorous, Democrats are not discounting the rocker. CNN reports that Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer contacted supporters in an effort to raise money that would be split with Debbie Stabenow, the Michigan senator up for reelection. “I’ll be honest,” Sen. Schumer wrote, “we don’t know if this is real, a joke, or a bizarre publicity stunt. But I’ll tell you this: I don’t find it funny.” Schumer added that in the Trump era, “We can’t afford to take this tweet as a joke.” Warren also warned against dismissing Kid Rock’s potential bid.
“We all thought Donald Trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced his campaign, too,” she wrote. Per Michigan Radio, Stabenow’s campaign also referenced Trump in an email to supporters, saying that after his “surprising” win, “we need to act fast.” The senator, who plays guitar, tweeted an article about Kid Rock’s bid with the words, “I know we both share a love of music. I concede he’s better at playing guitar and I’ll keep doing what I do best: fighting for Michigan.” Kid Rock’s response? “I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bulls***!” The musician hasn’t yet filed paperwork with the FEC to run, but says he will.
Even before I could stop laughing at the moronic idea of this toad being a candidate….more silly news arrived…..
From Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner to … Senator Jenner? The transgender activist said during an interview on New York’s AM 970 over the weekend that she’s considering a run for the Senate in California, reports the Hill. The former Olympian is a lifelong Republican and supporter of President Trump, which the Los Angeles Times notes won’t necessarily help her cause in blue California. But she also has publicly disagreed with Trump over transgender policy.
“I have considered it,” Jenner, 67, said in the interview. She added that she likes politics but is debating whether she can be more productive as an insider or an outsider, noting, “I gotta find out where I can do a better job.” The next Senate election in the state is 2018, when Democrat Dianne Feinstein’s seat will be up for grabs. Feinstein, 84, has not said whether she’ll seek re-election, and no big-name Republican has stepped up so far.
Oh my god….American politics has become one long reality TV show……they will not win but even that they are considered as serious candidates is too much stupidity in one place.
Have a laugh on me.
Until we meet in the ‘morrow….chuq
