PONTIAC, Mich. – Kid Rock, who will play at the GOP convention in Tampa and is the artist behind Mitt Romney's campaign song "Born Free," made an appearance at Paul Ryan's fundraiser here in Michigan Friday.
According to a pool report, Kid Rock – whose real name is Robert Ritchie – introduced Ryan at the fundraiser, held at the Oakland Hills Country Club.
“I was going to be a little weisenheimer and say, ‘Which one is running for vice president?'" Kid Rock told attendees. “Then they would introduce Paul and I would walk out and say hello.''
That didn't happen. Upon taking the stage, Ryan remarked, “So one of us is running for vice president, but only one of us was listening to ‘Bawitdaba’ in the motorcade on the way over here.”
