    New Candidate for 2020

    It seems that the election of Donald Trump to the office of president has blown the door wide open for just about anyone to run for office and have a legitimate shot at becoming the leader of the free world.

    The rock, whatever else he may be, is first and foremost a showman and plays to the money. He really tickles me sometimes. That said, up until last year, I'da said there was no chance of a showman getting elected.

    Our prior Resident effectively proved ANYONE can be given the POTUS office, with enough political backing and funding. No matter how utterly ineligible he is.
    And we have had a showman before. Ron Reagan. Though he did at least gain viable political experience at the state level first.

    The Rock may have some competition, albeit, I don't think he'll be much of a threat , that P-Diddy guy, the one mooching off of that Kartrashian chick, he said he was going to run for Prez. Can you imagine what we'd be in for if some dip wad rapper got elected President ?

    Well, in the (almost) improbable event that The Rock becomes Prez, there might be fewer weird presidential comb-over memes than presently appears to be the case. Pepe might also, thankfully disappear into the dustbin of political lampoonery, along with Donaldo the Biggly Magnificent. :rolleyes:

    Bonzo's supporting actor, Ronald, created that precedent. Bonzo would have made a much better president than Donald....Of course, Bonzo could always be compromised by Bonzo Jr emails about contacts with the Moscow Circus! :eek:

    It all depends on how one defines successful....Donald has left behind him, a considerable trail of business failures also.

    That may be so, but the present Resident is effectively underscoring that sentiment....Bigly

    I hear Madonna was offering up something or another for votes. I wonder if she'll run?

    Apparently, Kid Rock is going to run for Senator from Michigan...I am betting he will win by a landslide. I met the guy a few times overseas, down to earth. Other entertainers would come over one time but he was one of the few that kept coming back year after year, him and Robin Williams... The thought of Kid Rock debating someone like Nancy Pelosi in the noble halls of Congress sends me into laughing fits! LOL! Hell, yeah, I would vote for the Kid! LOL!

    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was born into a professional wrestling family in 1972. An injury ended his college football career, so he entered the ring with the Word Wrestling Federation. As "The Rock," he famously feuded with wrestler Steve Austin and won the WWF Heavyweight title six times. Johnson then parlayed his wrestling fame into a film career, appearing in projects like 2001's The Mummy Returns and 2010's Tooth Fairy. His recent projects include Furious Seven (2015), San Andreas (2015) and the HBO series Ballers (2015).

    Early Life
    Professional wrestler and actor Dwayne "The Rock" Douglas Johnson was born on May 2, 1972, in Hayward, California. The grandson of professional wrestler Peter "High Chief" Fanene Maivia and son of wrestler Rocky Johnson, the young Johnson grew up watching his father perform in the ring. But with no plans to follow in his footsteps, Johnson played college football at the University of Miami where he had great success until a back injury cost him a spot in the NFL.

    The Rock
    With few prospects in professional football, Johnson turned to wrestling, debuting in the WWF against the Brooklyn Brawler in Texas. After a couple more matches, including a tag team win with Bart Sawyer, the WWF signed him under the name Flex Kavana. A year later, he joined The Nation of Domination, eventually taking over its leadership and calling himself The Rock.

    Because his mother, Ata Fitisemanu Maivia, is a descendant of Samoan chiefs, and in recognition of his service to the Samoan people, Malietoa Tanumafili II bestowed upon Johnson the noble title of Seiuli during his visit there in July 2004. He received a partial Samoan pe'a tattoo in 2003.

    Johnson married Dany Garcia on May 3, 1997. Their daughter, Simone Alexandra, was born August 14, 2001.[293] On June 1, 2007, they announced they were splitting up amicably and intended to remain friends.] Soon after the divorce, Johnson began dating Lauren Hashian, the daughter of Boston drummer Sib Hashian. They first met in 2006 while Johnson was filming The Game Plan, prompting rumors he left his marriage for Hashian.Their first child, a daughter named Jasmine, was born in December 2015.

    I would guess that the KID Rock saw that Al Franken got elected, so, if that DUFUS can do it almost anyone with Name Recognition at least has a chance.;....

    @BTPost Like I said, I'm voting for him just to see him square with that old cow Pelosi. Hell, I would pay for tickets to see that! LOL!

    I'm not quite sure how that would fly with the Fundagelical Right....though it has to be said that the present Prez has demonstrated that even an atheist could be elected POTUS, provided that they were prepared to kowtow to the religious Right, get Pat Robertson's (and other conservative religious bobble heads') endorsement, and closet their atheism with a façade of milquetoastian religiosity
