Ted Nugent wants to throw his 10-gallon hat into 2018 Michigan Senate race

Just when your eyes came back to a normal position after hearing that Kid Rock's name is floating around to run against current Michigan senator Debbie Stabenow, it seems that another Michigander wants a shot for a Senate seat, too.

That's right, folks. The Motor City Madman Ted Nugent himself is thinking about a possible run in 2018, according to Fox News.

In an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation, Nugent said there is "nothing I wouldn't do to help [Michigan] in any way I can," and would not rule out a bid.

Just to give you a taste of Ted Nugent's political discourse, he once said this during a concert in 2007:  
"Obama, he's a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun. Hey Hillary [Clinton], you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch."

Oh, and then back in 2012 at a NRA convention in St. Louis he said "if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

Last time we checked, conservatives wanted celebrities to stay out of politics, but since our President's last job was deciding whether to fire Gilbert Gottfried or Vivica A. Fox from a reality TV program, Kid Rock and Ted Nugent on a GOP ticket sounds about right.
