Summer is traditionally the silly season of politics, but many are taking the GOP celebrities’ efforts seriously.
NPR reported: “Kid Rock, whose legal name is Robert James Ritchie, tweeted a picture of a ‘Kid Rock for US Senate’ sign along with what appears to be a campaign website.”
But: “So far, Kid Rock has not filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission. The Kid Rock for Senate website sells campaign-themed merchandise but directs to a Warner Bros. record label website to complete transactions. That site does not ask the questions that campaign websites must ask, such as whether the donor is an American citizen. The FEC says candidates must register if they raise or spend more than $5,000.”
Jenner’s boomlet was broadcast via John Catsimatidis on the “Cats Roundtable” radio show.
“Over the next six months or so, I got to find out where I can do a better job, can I do a better job from the outside kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, Or are you better off from the inside,” she said. “We’re in the process of determining that, and, yeah, I would look for, a senatorial run.”
Looking for targets of sarcasm? Look no further.
