Mocking people who took the idea seriously, Kid Rock said this morning he's not running for U.S. Senate. Kid Rock said on Stern's SiriusXM show. "You f--g kidding me?"

"Who couldn't figure that out?" A "Kid Rock announcement on KidRock.com" link displayed on "kidrockforsenate.com" now links to a promotional webpage announcing the album's release and tour dates-for the humbly named "Greatest Show on Earth Tour"-beginning in January".

Rock, born Robert James Ritchie, has a new album, "Sweet Southern Sugar", coming out next month.

Rock - born Robert James Ritchie - had made news earlier this year when he publicly mulled a U.S. Senate run in his native MI.

"I$3 t's been the most creative thing I've ever done", he said. I've got mother--s thinking I'm running for Senate.' People who are in on it are like, 'Are you really doing it?' I'm like: 'Dude, you're f-ing in on the joke!

But the potential Senate bid was a stunt.

Seconds later, tongue firmly in cheek, Kid Rock laid out the conditions for a possible run: If newspapers keep making fun of him, he will jump in and defeat "Debbie whatever-the-f - her name is" to get revenge.

The L.A. Times headlined another piece, No joke: Kid Rock is a competitive candidate for the U.S. Senate in MI.

In conversations with those in his circle, Kid Rock would tell them to "roll with it for a while", even he wasn't going to pursue the office.
