Non-Idiot Celebrity of the Month: Kid Rock

We spend a good deal of time here mocking doofus celebs, so why not highlight one who demonstrates that intelligence isn’t necessarily what you know, but rather the ability to know what you don’t know.

Kid Rock is one of those celebrities who thinks celebrities should keep their mouths shut about politics:

“I’m good at writing songs and singing. What I’m not educated in is the field of political science. And so for me to be sharing my views and influencing people of who I think they should be voting for … I think would be very irresponsible on my part.”

Because that it takes brains to realize this, Kid Rock is our Intelligent Celebrity of the Month (of the year if we don’t find another intelligent celebrity in the next few months).

This is a refreshing sorbet after reading about all the Hollywood dunces with more money than brains who have been on parade all week at the Democratic convention cuckoo’s nest.

Sure, it may be a tad irresponsible for a stupid celebrity to tell people who to vote for, but how stupid does that make the person who followed the advice of the stupid celebrity, and exactly how bad must the politician in question be if so many stupid people are voting for him or her?

Peddling wares using a pyramid scheme of stupid (“You tell two idiots, and they tell two idiots, and so on and so forth”) is big business, and Hollywood is the Amway of moronic leftist activism.
