There is so much in that headline that's actually hard to comprehend the gravity of it all, and the implications from it.
'00s nu-metal "star" Kid Rock is apparently very, very serious about entering politics. Much like his political idol Donald Trump, Kid Rock - real name Robert James Ritchie - has been vocal about his views on the world via Twitter and made the announcement there last night. If the run is real - and Rock claims it is - he'll be going up against Michigan's Debbie Stabenow, who's held Michigan for the Democrats since 2000.

Rock was apparently mentioned as a possible candidate for office back in February during the Republican National Convention, and considering the GOP is standing behind reality TV stars who openly confess to sexual assault, it shouldn't come as any surprise that they're seriously considering Kid Rock.
Senator Kid Rock. Imagine. Imagine that. Imagine a world where Kid Rock is an elected politician. You laugh now.
