Saturday Night Cheap Shots Open Thread: Kid Rock Is Trending & He Isn’t Even Dead…

… although he might’ve written his own professional obituary, if Molly Jong-Fast’s tweet is any indication. Turns out Rum-Tum-Sleazy is *not* one of the Jellicle Cats!

Ah, well, he’s still got his biggest fan…

    Who the *#! even is Kid Rock? The only context I ever run across his name is that he’s a right-wing Trump-supporting celebrity, but unlike say, Ted Nugent, I cannot even begin to connect his name to any sort of actual purported music (other than that his name “Rock” suggests something vaguely in the pop-rock field). At least with Nugent, he’s a mediocre sorta metal-rock guitarist aside from being an asshole; Kid Rock I know nothing apart from the asshole part.

    Nope, white boy rap to start and now country. Because of course.

    This guy was a joke even before he hooked up with Pam Anderson, at a point she was on a downhill slide from being a Baywatch babe—post-Tommy Lee. Who also had a moment this week, but on the side of good.

    Upside of this kreffluffle is that when I did an internet search yesterday to find out what set Kid Rock off on his twitter ‘ratio’ suicide mission, there was plenty of stuff on Taylor Swift’s recent political activity. So, over last couple of months, she’s been coming out as a miserable lefty on several hot button issues, including gun control, supporting HRC in 2016, as well as LGBTQ.

    I also read that Swift and Beyonce have been talking about figuring out a good duo set for several years. We need to all write them that we’ll simply DIIIEE if they don’t do it, preferably at a Democratic fund raiser. Put some star and heart emojies in the message.

    Me myself an I think a Swift Beyonce duet will be nothing special. Styles too different. But who cares?

    Also, idea that Kid Rock would try to ape Insane Clown Posse is an insult to Insane Clown Posse, and I truly did not believe that was possible.

    Serious question for BJ legal squad: Mulvaney can be impeached, right? If so, need to put him on the ever growing list of Trumpster officials who we should start with, before we get to Trump.

    Mulvaney Admits To Ulterior Motive For Suspicious Move Of USDA Experts
    “Now, it’s nearly impossible to fire a federal worker,” he continued Friday, citing his own experiences. But by simply saying to workers that they would have to move “out into the real part of the country,” the agency had achieved its goal.

    “What a wonderful way to streamline government, and do what we haven’t been able to do for a long time,” Mulvaney said. Applause rolled across the Silver Elephant fundraising gala.
    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/in-40-seconds-mulvaney-revealed-truth-about-moving-govt-scientists-to-real-america

    And in history of Deep State news, read that federal agricultural statistics program goes back to 1863. So, clearly we have the origin of the Deep State plot against Trump pinned down to some time between 1786 and 1863. Stay tuned for more news from this important investigation

    It’s a day ending in “y”, so… Bloomberg:

    Joe Biden said he was vice president when the deadly high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, took place. Except, it happened in 2018, more than a year after he left office — the latest gaffe by the Democratic presidential front-runner.

    Biden told reporters in Iowa on Saturday that “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.” But when they visited Capitol Hill to talk with members of Congress, lawmakers were “basically cowering, not wanting to see them. They did not want to face it on camera.”

    The former vice president was making a point about the changing conversation around gun violence in this country, and how as more and more ordinary people are touched by mass shootings, they are more likely to call for action.

    An official with the Biden campaign said the former vice president was thinking of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, when he misspoke. That attack, in which 20 children between six and seven years old were killed along with six staff members, was in December 2012.

    […]

    Go home, Joe. You’ve got a decent message on many things, but you’re not the right messenger.

    I’ve never really liked Kid Rock’s music all that much. I don’t hate him. I just think he’s an asshole. Not on the Ted Nugent level but he’s trying to get there and that is an even poorer move. I don’t fault any music acts that run through Detroit and play a song or two with him, even though he lives in Alabama most the year now (what a shock, eh?) Just keep it to one or two songs please.

    Like it or no, Taylor Swift has been an ally for the last coupla years, working on voter registration and calling out her state’s elected officials. She’s one of a number of “celebrities” who are actually trying to help. She’s at least using her so-called “elite” status for good.

    And Kid Rock’s been Trump’s ally.

    You’re doing the whole circular firing squad thing (as in condeming our friends), and I’m not supposed to consider you a purity troll? Try again, bucko. Or better yet, go away and come back when you can be constructive. Or entertaining.

    I’m not trolling, but I really don’t care for the middle-of-the-road horseshit this place seems to love. And I’ll call out unrealistic, token liberalism as I see it.

    I’ve managed to continue knowing almost nothing about Kid Rock, but I recently saw a really excellent drag king performance that was a lipsync of “Bawitdaba”—impersonating a much older Kid Rock who’s let himself go, not the 1998 version. Anyone whose shtick involves a lot of cartoonish aggro masculinity is perfect for drag, and the performer (can’t remember their name unfortunately) somehow managed to give it a kind of awkward earnestness so that the song’s attempt at a social message came across as way more sincere, and also made the chug-chug guitar stuff seem more convincingly energetic by jumping all over the stage. It was quite something.

    And to be clear… I fully support Trump being impeached, even though I know he would also be exonerated by the senate. But people will actually care about what gets revealed in the course of a Trump impeachment process. Nobody would give a hoot about a Mulvaney impeachment, especially when McConnell laughs in everyone’s faces when the impeachment gets referred to the senate and he doesn’t even hold a hearing on it.

    Janesays says:

    @TS (the original): Specifically which Democrats did I attack? Please, enlighten me… which Democrats are seriously proposing that we should impeach Mulvaney?

    Let’s put aside the fact that you’re not going to be able to name any prominent Democrats who actually think trying to impeach Mulvaney is a sensible idea, and please explain to me how it is that stating my opinion that impeaching Mulvaney won’t actually accomplish anything meaningful constitutes, “attacking Democrats”?

    Could you explain to me what possible positive things you think Democrats would gain by impeaching Mick Mulvaney, knowing full well that nothing will come of it in the senate, he’ll keep his job, and the whole thing will disappear into the ether the very next week? What exactly would be accomplished? Come on, genius, tell me.

    If I'm reading this correctly, Trump is admitting that as president he's too incompetent to stop the Clinton body count from mounting. Really an amazing argument when you think about it. https://t.co/qB55FIZ6Nn— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) August 10, 2019

    @Omnes Omnibus: Honestly Snow isn’t even really rap. He’s more doing a modern Sprechstimme. If you listen, he follows a melodic pattern that true rap doesn’t.

    And no I’m not conning you to listen. I’m good because Snow was part of my high school experience.

    @Yutsano: If we want to head down that road, what he was doing was “toasting, ” It is a Jamaican vocal style that has roots back to Africa. It isn’t rap but it is, shall we say, rap’s cousin.

    And as long as were are talking aboot Snow, we shouldn’t forget this.

    Okay cooled off a bit….

    @:Jim, Foolish Literalist: Whateves Foolish Centralist. Your lame meet in the middle mediocrity will produce precisely jack and squat. I don’t deny that lame-o’s like Biden will probably get a lot of votes, and will likely end up in the oval office, (provided we get our shit together) but he will not move this country forward. For the record Sanders is an idiot – Warren is awesome but apparently uneletectable according to this wankhole, and Harris is the end-all-be-all. I have no problem with that, except the rest of the ~90% (or 88% or 84% whatever you pedantic fuckers!) of this fucking country currantly doesn’t agree. We have to herd cats and that is beyond all our present abilities – especially as we want to rip each other’s faces off in the name of pretty white chicks. (Yes, I’m the instigator here – thank you Mr/Ms Pedant – see below)

    @Jay: Jezuz Jay. Look, I like perky ya-ya’s as much as the next straight guy. What I don’t like is someone relying on the authority of their ya-ya’s (and/or pretty white face) to make a point. Political or otherwise. I agree that any port in the storm is a good thing, I just want someone who (or whom – whatever you fucking pedantic assmunches!) I can rely on when shit goes down. Right now Ms Swift is a fair weather friend for all we know. She’s been consistent, but I want someone who’s (/”whom is”- eat shit you fuckers!) going to the wall. We’re all going to the wall, and very soon. If that makes me a pie-able, well, I mourn this site. Shit is happening right now, and there is little escape. What side are you on? Or does it matter with you being Canadian? (and yes – I really hate the fucking pedants on this site – eat shit you anal retentive assholes!… though I learn a lot from you… I’m such a wussy lib.)

    Fun fact: Anyone who uses the word “pedanr” in conversation is, by definition, a pedant.

    Maybe. Could just be a self-important, self-righteous asshole, with a need to tell everyone/anyone to “Fuck Off I’m RIGHT and You All Fucking Suck!”

    Not sure which one applies here.

    And, yes, I saw what you did there.

    I was thinking well maybe Rock is right because Harvey Weinstein didn’t just happen by himself. But then, any conservative uses the American flag as pair of pants is the south end of a north bound horse. These loser can’t even be consistent to their own ideology.

    Also, Clay Akien told my Clay Akien fan girl mom, it’s just just the women, even the male talent are expected to “suck everyone in Hollywood off” and they aren’t given a choice. So Kid Rock knows all about advancing musical careers with oral sex.

    Argh. I like a couple of his “songs” esp Cowboy, but like Nickleback and even Nugent, their politics make them unacceptable to buy.

    I will, um, borrow their songs from YouTube.

    @Omnes Omnibus: Balloon Juice is useful. There is a lot of information on this blog, and I like the community here. I’m ok with entertainers, I just think that they get too much attention
