Texans for Kinky

Jul 9, 2009, 9:27 am by Paul Stiverson

Those of you who know me personally know that I was an ardent supporter of Kinky Friedman during his run for Governor of the great state of Texas in 2006. He was running as an independent, and he came in dead last. He has announced that he plans to run in the upcoming gubernatorial election, but this time as a Democrat, which I think is where he should be to offset some goober like Chris Bell from stepping in and not even trying to run a campaign against Rick Perry (as happened in í06).

I believed then, as I do now, that our state needs somebody like Kinky in the Governorís Mansion. We need Kinky because he is not from the political institution, and he can break up the cronyism that has plagued our government for the last decade. In these tough times we need somebody who will actually stand up for the working poor and offer them the support (not necessarily monetary) that they need. We need somebody who will place education in the forefront and pull us up from the bottom 5% in education quality. We need somebody who will re-instate funding for those who care for the mentally and physically handicapped. We need somebody who will speak for needs of every Texan. We need a rebel to bring back the international glory and mystique that Texas once held.

Donít get me wrong, I think he was better as an Independent, but he can win as a Democrat. Afterall, it isnít the label that is important, it is the man. And, friends, Kinky is the man for this time and place.

You mean he's running for President. We're still going to secede right?

I just don't know if I can do this again. He broke my heart in 2006.

Shutup John, threats of secession should be reserved for times when we are actually being oppressed.

Lew, your heart was broken by the electorate, donít take it out on Kinky.

When I get back to Texas we should all get together and buy some of Kinkyís Cigars and have a drink or two.

I don't think perry is going to get the nod this go 'round. Kinky will most likely have to duke it out with Hutchison, if he can secure the democrat slot.

If you're a link spammer you should know that no links on this page will be followed by a site indexer (go ahead, check my meta tags), so it will not improve your page ranking. . . thus it is kinda ridiculous to post here
