Kinky Friedman for governor!!!!!!

I read a story this morning about Kinky Friedman, the Jewish country singer turned detective novelist who is running for governor in Texas. Personally, think sounds like a reality TV show but that’s just my opinion. Anyhow, yeah, it’s weird.

This surprisingly left-wing candidate wrote such wonderful songs, as “They don’t make Jews like Jesus anymore”. I think would be good for Texas then, possibly, the country because we need an unconventional leader for these unconventional times. He takes pride in his habit for being politically incorrect and for supporting the separation between church and state. “I’m not afraid to offend people,” he says. Let’s hope not, in this time we can’t be worried about niceties, but we can still have a sense of humor because that’s what separates us from our enemies: extremists, is a sense of humor. So what I’m saying is let’s rest the right wing, because they’re getting full of themselves, and lets fly with the left and if Texas starts it off; lets face it, it will be a big blow to the right wing theocracy.

In conclusion, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that Kinky can get into office, and I hope my fellow left-wingers will do the same. I’m still laughing.

Well I really don't get into political stuff, but sometimes change is good.

Isn't it great that there are still people in this country who understand what being in a democracy is all about. I'd guess for Kinky, the point of running is not necessarily to win, but rather, to bring attention to issues that connected career politicians would prefer to remain in the background.

Mack's got a good point. Change can be a very good thing. And I for one, think change is in the air. Someone's got to begin a dialogue about our country; its direction and its future. There's no reason is shouldn't be Kinky.

And to be from Texas of all places. That's a hoot.
