Ain’t enough whiskey

The sale of campaign paraphernalia, minus any sort of campaign, is the inevitable next step in the politics as grift long con.

But this is preferable to what will come after: heavily-armed thugs accosting people for campaign donations.

          I remember being absolutely stunned that the fairly cute actress who played the unstable PR publicist hired by the Bluth family in season 1 of Arrested Development is actually Kid Rock’s sister.

          • Hummus5989

            That is one of the most disappointing things I have ever read

      What are you trying to do with us?

        Distract you from the reality of just far this country has sunk with funny pictures of a supreme douchebag.

    • kaydenpat

      What is that? How about putting up a trigger warning and hiding it after the fold?

      • My blood runs cold
        My memory has just been sold
        Kid Rock is the centerfold

      Stop it! you are being sadistic!

        But he has such a mockable face. He always looks like he just walked into a light pole while high as fuck on oxycontin and bath salts. He looks like he grew up on a strict diet of paint chips.

        • postmodulator

          There’s that meme where he is described as “the human equivalent of an above-ground pool.”

          • tsam100

            HAHAHAHAHA! That’s fucking hilarious and so so so perfect.

          • Thirtyish

            That is magnificent.

    I guess that plan to head out west didn’t pan out.

      He got tangled up with the guys that really run that town

        You MUST BE BANNED

        • postmodulator

          Tsam, did you have all these in reserve? I actually know a couple of musicians around here who have a sick fascination with Kid Rock.

  • SatanicPanic

    Signs announcing where the dummies live is going to make life a lot easier for door-to-door salesmen.

    • weirdnoise

      Perhaps some of these.

      • SatanicPanic

        Weird, I never knew about these

    When I was a young man, conservatives bemoaned the coarsening of our culture.
    IOKIYAR.

    • bright side: now we can give even less of a fuck when they wag their fingers!

    • anapestic

      How do you know he’s not really running as a Republican instead of not really running as a Democrat?

    • mattmcirvin

      It was never consistent or honest, though: I remember marveling at how George Will could crank out instances of the “coarsening of our culture” column alternating with the one about how liberals were all bluenoses out to ruin everyone’s fun.

  • remember when Obama was the “celebrity President” ? and that was bad?

    (not that it made any sense from the party of Reagan, Sonny Bono, Eastwood, and Fred Thompson)

    • jim, some guy in iowa

      I blinked there for a moment until I realized you meant Sonny. Also too Fred Grandy

    • Some of us remember Orrin Hatch floating the idea of amending the Constitution so that Arnold Schwartzenegger could run for president.

      • Judas Peckerwood

        Did Arnie leave the GOP or did the GOP leave Arnie? Enquiring minds (and Joe Scarborough) want to know.

        • Thlayli

          Serious answer: the GOP left him. He has committed Heresy Number One in their eyes — he thinks climate change is a problem.

      • twbb

        It honestly doesn’t sound like a bad idea right now.

  • BiloSagdiyev

    HOW? How did show business and politics wind up with so many attention-seeking narcissists in them? I blame the Marconi wireless.

    • RBHolb

      I blame those new talking pictures. Seeing and hearing those Hollywood people just poisoned all our minds.

      • Guelph

        It’s the Model-T Ford made the trouble.

  • Murc

    This feels wrong in a way that the Stewart/Colbert 20XX shirts I see every four years don’t.

  • If you frequent any of the rightwing Web sites or watch any of the rightwing TV shows or listen to talk radio or subscribe to any kind of conservative media, what you find is that you’re inundated with
    gold-bug schemes
    real-estate get-rich-quick (with no work and no money down!) schemes
    survivalist shit (weapons, rations, how-to-bury a storage container to live in, etc.)
    health supplements that consist largely of sawdust and bullshit
    endless “donate to [fill in cause/politician/organization] to stop [fill in imagined liberal cause]
    and, of course, sign this petition with your email address so we can spam the fuck out of your inbox with all of the above stuff.
    Some people simply want to be taken advantage of. I sometimes feel I have an affirmative moral duty to separate conservatives from their money, but then my conscience kicks in along with my gag reflex.

    • Thirtyish

      They want to believe, and they don’t care about being parted with their money if it helps sustain the belief.

    I suppose if Trump is “qualified” to be President, Kid Rock is just as “qualified” to be a Senator.

    • Thlayli

      Anytime someone says “X is running for office? That’s ridiculous!”, the obvious comeback is “More ridiculous than Donald Trump?”

  • drdick52

    Gonna need something a lot stronger than whiskey for that.

      WOW. I knew KR was a suburban white kid, but this is extra-suburban. THIS IS WHY I HAVE TRUST ISSUES

        You’re not kidding. It turns out he’s the human equivalent of an in-ground pool. A diseased-kidney-shape in-ground pool.

        Kidney Rock. Dig it, man.

      My mom and stepdad live a couple of miles from where that house is. Bruce Township and Romeo are big time Tea Party country, sad to say. Drives my mom nuts.

    I had to stop reading the comments, folks. I couldn’t stand the laughter

  • Are you sure he’s not running for the CS Senate?
