Watch Stephen Colbert on Kid Rock Versus Ted Nugent Michigan Senate Race

‘Late Show’ host introduces another unhinged Michigan contender, Shrieking Joe, the Saginaw Psycobath

Stephen Colbert considered the ridiculousness of a possible 2018 Michigan Senate race that included candidates Kid Rock and Ted Nugent on The Late Show Wednesday.

So far, Kid Rock’s name has been floated by a Tea Party activist, according to the Detroit Free Press. While Nugent told The Daily Caller he wouldn’t rule out running for the state office. Colbert noted that such a race – wholly possible in Trump’s America – could be close considering it would “really split the Uncle-who-sells-you-fireworks vote.” 

Colbert then introduced another Michigan hard rocker considering a Senate run: Shrieking Joe, the Saginaw Psychopath. During the hilarious bit, the crossbow-toting, fedora-wearing musician (think, Rock in 20 years), hyped a few of his albums: Live From Your Mothers’ Panties, Born to Hunt Dolphins and Boobie Messiah. “My platform is simple: I want you to get wet, jump on it – I love sex!”

Shrieking Joe also set himself apart from Kid Rock and Nugent, proclaiming himself the “original American Dumbass.” Then he fired off an absurd new rap-rock campaign anthem, complete with an air-guitar solo on his crossbow.
