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.

We need guns, do you expect any cops to save your ass. If you think people can't handle guns, my guess is you can't handle money. So, why don't I take it and spend it for you or the government!
