Vote Kinky Friedman!

This blog needs to start with a bang, and I can think of no better way to do so than with a whole-hearted, full-gutted endorsement of Kinky Friedman for Governor of Texas. Inexplicably, this blog that is designed to give religious lefties a voice, is dominated by Texans. As one half of the two person majority of Texans, I would like to take this opportunity to tell all y’all why the Kinkster should be your next governor.

1. – His campaign slogan is “Why The Hell Not?”

2. His campaign platform can be described as nothing short of breathtaking. A snippet from Kinky’s campaign website:

“As Governor, Kinky, or “the Kinkster”, would:

  • Legalize casino gambling to fund education
  • Abolish political correctness “We didn’t get to be the Lone Star state by being politically correct”
  • Take a good look at death row. “We need to make sure that we’re not putting innocent people to death, which I believe we are”
  • Outlaw the de-clawing of cats
  • Bring young people into his administration. “Young people are less corrupt. They are the future of Texas ; it’s theirs to win or lose.”

I’m a Jew, I’ll hire good people.

“If elected, I would ask Willie Nelson to be the head of the Texas Rangers and Energy Czar and Laura Bush to take charge of the Texas Peace Corps to improve education in the state. I’d ask my Palestinian hairdresser, Farouk Shami, to be Texas’ ambassador to Israel . We’ve worked together to create Farouk & Friedman olive oil. The oil comes from the Holy land and all of the profits go to benefit Israeli and Palestinian children.”

Texas has always been an independent place. A nation where the laws of logic, decency, and limitations don’t slow us down. Kinky Friedman, a Jewish cowboy / country musician / salsa peddler / animal rescue activist / mystery writer / barfly is just the person to shake up Texas politics. Firmly agianst the “wussification” of Texas politics, he wants to make Willie Nelson expand his biodiesel company statewide. He is fiercely independent, and because of his stature doesn’t have to kowtow to any special interest groups.

The two major parties are both beholden to special interest groups that control the votes and the power (one more than the other, in my opinion). Maverick politicians like Kinky restore hope in all of us that laws are made by real folks, true representatives of the people.
