Goodbye Joe Scarborough . . . Hello, Kid Rock - American Greatness

The “decadent, lazy, spoiled” Americans who aren’t good enough for Bill Kristol and who ex-conservative Bret Stephens wants to deport and replace with cheap foreign imports, the small towns that National Review’s Kevin Williamson says deserve to die are fighting for their lives. They want their country back. And they have more in common with Kid Rock than with the Republican elites who have turned their backs on flyover America.


I don't think I've ever listened to a Kid Rock song. Maybe I have and just don't know it. But there absolutely is something to this view of professional conservatives who just inhabit think tanks and pet jobs at liberal publications and live on the East Coast. I'm not sure that gets one all the way to Kid Rock, however. We need a national conservative party and someone better than Trump to lead it.
