Kid Mitt

At last: Cool points for Mitt Romney.

ROYAL OAK, Mich. – It had all the fixings of a Mitt Romney rally, and then Kid Rock hit the stage.

On the eve of the Michigan primary, musician Kid Rock sang a live version of “Born Free,” the official campaign song of the Romney campaign and a song that, until tonight, has only been heard in its recorded version, blaring through speakers at events from New Hampshire to Iowa to South Carolina, and everywhere in between. …

As Kid Rock belted out the lyrics to “Born Free,” Romney and his wife Ann stood and listened, tapping their feet, clapping and whistling in support.
