    You know, if he took it halfway seriously he'd be a shoo-in.

    Is he going to get his band, "The Texas Jewboys" back together for the campaign?
    Will they play his old tune, Get Your Biscuits In The Oven, And Your Buns In The Bed ?

    He might be dragging a little baggage.

    After touring with the Grateful Dead, I don't see how he could avoid just a little baggage. Heck I'd vote for him.

    Our current gov is sort of invisible anyway for the most part. Haven't heard a peep out if him a quite a while.

    He's speaking at the TSRA meeting this weekend, if he doesn't rock the house then Kinky might pick up some support then and there :)

    I like governors like that. I wish ours would shut the heck up.

    If I were still in Texas, I'd vote for him. There has always been a wild streak in Texans, like a mustang pony, that surfaces every so often. This is a good thing. I hope he wins....

    If nothing else, he will scare the urine out of the wimps that infest Austin. :D

    If he doesn't win election, how about we send him as special ambassador to Syria or Iran?

    Well, with the current crop of wanna-be candidates that are about to start infecting us, I'm starting to think ol' Kinky might not be such a bad choice.

    If Rick Perry or Kay Bailey-Hutchison are the alternatives to voting for Kinky, I'll vote Kinky...

    If the Repubs or Dems get smart & put Carol Keeton-Strayhorn on the ballot, I'll prefer to vote for her....

    Heck, Kinky wants to put Willie Nelson in charge of the Texas Rangers.....

    ...(and I sure hope he means the ball team. :eek: )

    Seeker,

    I’m not a big fan of “One Tough Grandmaâ€. What is it you like about her?

    Hummmm maybe he would be the best thing to happen to the Rangers in a long time.

    Lyrics :

    Well a man come on the 6 o’clock news
    Said somebody’s been shot, somebody’s been abused
    Somebody blew up a building
    Somebody stole a car
    Somebody got away
    Somebody didn’t get too far yeah
    They didn’t get too far

    Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day, son
    A man had to answer for the wicked that he done
    Take all the rope in Texas
    Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
    Hang them high in the street for all the people to see that

    Justice is the one thing you should always find
    You got to saddle up your boys
    You got to draw a hard line
    When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune
    We’ll all meet back at the local saloon
    We’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces
    Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

    We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds
    We’ve got too much corruption, and crime in the streets
    It’s time the long arm of the law put a few more in the ground
    Send ’em all to their maker and he’ll settle ’em down
    You can bet he’ll set ’em down ’cause

    Justice is the one thing you should always find
    You got to saddle up your boys
    You got to draw a hard line
    When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune
    We’ll all meet back at the local saloon
    We’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces
    Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

    Justice is the one thing you should always find
    You got to saddle up your boys
    You got to draw a hard line
    When the gun smoke settles we’ll sing a victory tune
    We’ll all meet back at the local saloon
    We’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces
    Singing whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

    Geoff
    Who raises his glass against evil forces...or a can of Diet Dr. Pepper anyway. :cool:

    Ya' know, if the Libertarian Party of Texas ever wanted to make a splash, endorse Friedman and buy a license for "Beer for my Horses."

    Geoff
    Who wants every Professional Texican he ever met, who mentioned that Texas could become an independant country, or split into five states, to put their tail on the line and vote Kinky! :D

    I'm currently endorsing "Anyone but Perry"

    That pretty-boy eliteist has got to be one of the most disappointing Gubners we've had.

    As for Kinky.....I read an article about him. He basically has no thoughts on anything. His platform seems to be "Elect me and I'll figure out where I stand as the issues come up"

    I'd really like to hear a little more up front.

    Fun thought though.

    "I'm insinuating myself into the race against our common enemy: Rick Perry's hair," Kinky Friedman.

    I think that's a take off of Molly Ivans' comments about Gov. Perry's perfect hair. On CSPAN, I heard her comment that we should all be very proud of Perry, if only because he had the best hair of any governor. Plus, she calls him Capn' Goodhair in her columns.

    I am a little worried, since he was given the nickname "Kinky" in college becuase of his hair. :)

    I heard him say on Chris Matthews the other day, that if elected he'll immediately demand a re-count.

    I just looked at his website, and I saw nothing on guns - so I registered and posted the question on his message board. I'll let everyone know when I find out...because I'm not voting for anyone who is anti-gun, no matter how much they dis the establishment Republicrats.

    Be interesting to see where he stands on issues, heck any issue. I do know he isn't much for the death penalty, and is big friends with Don Imus.

    I'd vote for him on his welfare animal positions

    Kinster has a huge animal welfare ranch for abused abandoned dogs etc. If elected he says he would also outlaw cat declawing.

    Perry has been a do-nothing governor. I can't see letting him sit around Austin for another term. Moreover, despite the ripples about Kay Bailey, Perry is a Bush protege, so I doubt that the Republicans will bounce him.

    About the only Democrat I like around here is Gene Green, but I can't see him resigning his Congressional seat to run for Governor.

    That leaves Kinky:

    You want to know Kinky's stand on gun control? Quotes from the Internet.

    "I do not carry a gun myself, so if someone is going to shoot me, they better remember to bring their own weapon."

    And that's it. It's better than the waffling we've heard from a lot of other people.

    Personally, I think Kinky would be at least as good a governor for Texas as Arnie is for California and Jesse was for Michigan. He's politically incorrect -- what more could you ask for?

    I like a little levity in our electoral system as much as the next guy, but I find it amazing that so many people that espouse the Constitution are so willing to throw their vote away just for a joke. I actually like some of theings Kinky says, but I cherish my right to vite too much to make a mockery of it.
