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.

Operation Hot Mother is underway.

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!

Man's most valuable trait is a judicious sense of what not to believe.

Same reason for the Greyhound people and any airline: if they raised their fares when gas was $1.25 a litre, and they're the same price when gas is now almost fifty cents lower: they're making a higher profit now. At least that's what I think.
