Kid Rock Introduces Paul Ryan Who Takes Stage With AC/DC Blaring


Can anyone imagine, even a few cycles ago, a political candidate on the national ticket – a Republican no less – taking the stage to AC/DC after an introduction from Kid Rock whose catalog of songs includes “Early Morning Stoned Pimp” and “I’ll F*ck You Blind, Bitch?”

We live in strange political times. But I like it. It’s certainly an improvement over the whitewashed, thoroughly sanitized campaigns of old.

    Kid Rock is a hardcore Republican. Don’t ask me why a rapper from the Detroit suburbs would go GOP, but it’s the way things are. I guess he really wanted to rebel.

    • factsarefacts

      He also likes to keep his hard earned,stone cold pimpin money, in his pocket.
      That’s why he’s republican.

        Selfish guy, I get it now

  • Sad Daily

    Ryan would do anything to get elected. Mitt has already shown us his disregard for the truth. The Republicans are after the ” Low information voters”. These are the Fox News, Rush bunch. You can get them to vote with a cookie.

    • factsarefacts

      If you’re so sad daily, do something and leave our country.
      Maybe you won’t be so sad. Get a grip. You really liked how the last
      four years went. Honestly……….

      • Simle Minded

        Look at the stock market. Mitt wants to take us back to the Bush days that ruined our economy. Obama has fought hard to make any progress against the obstructionist. If the greed dogs had made any effort to help, the heavens would part. You silly dingers put every obstacle imaginable in Obamas way and then bitch he gets noting done. I am not so stupid to buy that, but maybe the Hooples will

        • mikemc1970

          He had a Congressional majority the first two years of his administration, why didn’t he do any of the things you’re banging on about then?

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            He did so many things in that time that you had to create a party to complain about how much he accomplished. How many different positions on the same issue can you take?

          • mikemc1970

            He couldn’t even get healthcare through before the people were able to mount an opposition and elect Senator Brown. Pretty pathetic by even the laziest of governmental standards.

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            Clinton couldn’t get healthcare reform through, Obama did. But, what ever get’s you through the night, mentally deficient crank.

          • mikemc1970

            Poor tard doesn’t remember that they had to sneak it through the Senate with a continuing resolution, AFTER Brown was elected. It’s understandable with your voracious crack habit and all.

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            So in your mind Obama didn’t get the healthcare reform bill passed? That’s why they call it Obamacare and not Browncare?

          • mikemc1970

            So you inferior mind can’t even recall that Obama couldn’t get healthcare through the Senate with a straight up vote because with the election of Brown the Senate lost their filibuster proof majority? Crack is not your friend.

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            But Obama did get healthcare reform through, what planet do you live on?

          • mikemc1970

            Not before Brown was elected. After that they had to sneak it through the Senate with a continuing resolution. You’re even more incoherent than usual, what have you been spiking your crack with lately?

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            Only you could admit Obama passed health care reform, but also be such a political hack douche to claim he didn’t pass health care reform.

            This is why nobody, and I mean NOBODY takes you seriously.

            You are just white noise in the sea of stupidity.

          • mikemc1970

            They didn’t pass it until after Brown was elected and then they snuck it through the back door with a continuing resolution, illegally. I know these facts are hard for you to take because they don’t jive with your crack induced illusions, but you’re really going to have to grow up and face the truth one day. Romney is going to be president come January and your Obamabucks will be in short supply then. Real life, a real job, and reality are all you’ll have then.

            obama…years of failure resulting in $6 trillion in debt, over 8 million less people in the work fork, 1/3 of the country on some kind of government assistance, obama being exposed as nothing more than a shallow thinker who gets Americans killed. But, he did succeed in getting the Muslim Brotherhood installed into power, and within Homeland Security, and he did get Al Qaeda flags flying over what used to be our embassies and fulfilling the hopes and dreams of his anti American mentors.
            He accomplished everything that will kill a country. obama, like you…FAILURE

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            Work fork? bush put AQ squarely in Iraq and destabilized the ME, by believing Democracy would have all states “fall like Dominos”. He got what he wished for.

          • Todd

            You clown…how long are you going to blame Bush for all of obama’s failures? obama has given the mid east back to Al Quada and the Taliban, and they’re coming back stronger than before. Thanks to obama’s weakness and failed polices, Americans have been killed, and will continue to be killed.
            That being said, obama has lost the independent vote, he’s done.

            With one hand, yet.

    • mikemc1970

      The Republicans are after the ” Low information voters”.

      I very seriously doubt they’re after your vote, Emil.

    • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

      Some of them will even show up for a tub of grease.

  • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

    Kid Rock just proved that he doesn’t know content when he hears it because Mitt Romney lied his ass off during that debate, and to act as if not calling out Mitt Romney on his lies requires a teleprompter, only shows what a true idiot the kid is.

    It’s clear he’s just playing to his fan base.

    But hey, I guess it’s more important to talk about rock music and pretend that the Republicans aren’t the party of the stiff color, uptight, anal retentive party.

    • Jay W.

      Exactly right. We should be focused on the economy. terrorist attacks on our embassies. the State Department ignoring warnings before those attacks. unemployment. Fast and Furious. the looming “ficsal cliff”. Big Bird.

        Prioritize dang it…
        Its not like ya gettin our ambassedors killed or

  • borborygmi

    Reagan just rolled over and the social conservatives are on their knees praying for his soul. Looking for the younger demographic?

    • mikemc1970

      The youngest demographic you’re going to reach with AC/DC will be in their forties. You know the same age as Ryan and Rock.

  • realitybasedbob

    Perhaps Mr. Kid’s lyrics might have upset the folks.

    Hoes get fucked – They don’t get kissed
    A simplistic pimp gettin much respect
    I’ll fuck your mouth and leave your ass in debt
    Jet set the country on your world perks
    Just to show you how a real pimp works
    Remove your shirt – show me them titties
    I’ll drive my dick right through your twin cites
    Around your bends over your curves and ass
    Park it in your mouth till I run out of gas

    Saw Mr. Rock perform at the ND State Fair. He loves America and music. I would say that his style came about because he did what he wanted to by blending country, blues, rock and rap into his own version and was probably told numerous times by the powers that be that, “it ain’t gonna fly, Richie.” When you think outside the box and make something for and/or of yourself without the help of those governing you (or your industry), how could you be a Democrat?

  • borborygmi

    Which one both appropriate for the party and a family gathering. Hilarious
    I’m on the highway to hell
    (Don’t stop me)
    And I’m going down, all the way down
    I’m on the highway to hell

    or I’ve got big balls

    Kid Rock’s take off on Sweet Home Alabama – Summertime in Northern Michigan – could have been the biography of my misspent youth.

    This just goes to show you that appearances can be deceiving – one would think this guy was a raging liberal to look at him, but apparently not. Interesting choice to use AC/DC – Back in Black is exactly where Ryan wants to take the country.
