Kinky Friedman

This guy is gold, not because I think he's good for the job but because he's entertaining. He's running for Governor of Texas in 2006 and last night was the first time I had heard of him.

Kinky Friedman for Governor...why the hell not?

How's that for a slogan

The interviewer was arguing with him yesterday over a few things, but most notably his use of the word "negro" which Kinky defended. I guess he's right that it's not technically an insulting word but some people feel that it is.

He also talked a bit about capital punishment and I think he said it would be worse punishment to put somebody in jail with a "negro that talks to himself." Once again the interviewer took exception but Kinky didn't think it was a problem.

Check out this cartoon:

Yeah he did say he was Jewish on the show which again irked the interviewer because he just kind of threw it out there out of the blue. The interviewer asked him what his point was, why did he say he was Jewish and I don't think he gave an answer

He also said that he wants to get more lesbians involved in NASCAR. Needless to the say, the interviewer again lost and asked him what does that have to do with anything?

I like the part in the cartoon where the second candidate says he loves tax cuts and then launches up into the clouds to rip open his shirt to show a red cross and says he loves Jesus
