Move over, Dwayne JohnsonKid Rock has just launched a new website, kidrockforsenate.com. The five-time Grammy Award nominee and hick-hop artist is apparently exploring a bid to run against Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow. Skeptics note his site contains little more than merchandise for sale, but Rock insists he has the right "to sell/promote whatever I damn well please" and warns "if I decide to throw my hat in the ring for US Senate, believe me . . . it’s game on mthrfkers.” Should Kid Rock run?
