If it's Richard "Kinky" Friedman, I suppose it's possible.

It's going to be fun to see him try, anyway.

The New Yorker had a big
writeup about his campaign, which seems to focus on education reform and slowing down the executions.

Not necessarily what I expected from the Asshole from El Paso, but I'm all for someone operating outside the two party system.

I dunno - I saw him on the Bill Maher show and it was pretty brutal. Quite honestly, I think this guy's more in the "Hulk Hogan" rather than the "Jesse Ventura" class of celebrity candidates. Although I use the word "Celebrity" pretty loosely here.

And hey, if Utah can elect a Jewish Governor, so can Texas (OK - so it was the 1917 version of Utah). I mean - and hey, if Kinky Friedman can play the Grand Ol' Opry as a Jew, he can get elected Governor of Texas as one!
