Kid Rock for Romney/Ryan

Bucking the trend of liberal elite rock stars like Jon Bon Jovi, Kid Rock came out in support of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan at a rally in Michigan yesterday:

ROCHESTER, Mich. – Rep. Paul Ryan had a rock star introduction at a campaign rally in front of thousands this evening when Michigan native and Mitt Romney supporter musician Kid Rock addressed the crowd before the GOP vice presidential nominee.
Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, struck a tone of togetherness during his brief speech, saying, “I really believe strongly that it’s OK to disagree on politics and the direction of our country without hating one another.”

Rock, 41, said it can be hard being a Republican in the entertainment industry and he knows his position “may alienate a few fans.”
“I mean it’s no secret that I am embedded in an industry that leans very left and I’ve listened to all the arguments and visions for our country. Don’t worry, I’m not going to give you a recap or stand up here and preach politics like some of my friends in Hollywood,” Kid Rock, dressed in his signature fedora hat, told the audience at Oakland University here.

It's nice to see a rock star with a brain. Kid Rock joins Ted Nugent as the two lone conservative rock stars in the known universe. Great job!
