Kinky Friedman for Governor? by tucsonmike on 20 May 2006 5:43pm
 
I couldn't resist. Kinky is a country singer who is running for Governor of Texas. He wants Willie Nelson in his cabinet. Kinky is a larger than life figure. His attitude toward gay marriage for example. They should suffer like the rest of us!

Hey, if he wins, I'm movin' to Texas!

Maybe he should ask Arnie of California for some tips.

On top of that, if he wins, he would have Willie Nelson join his Cabinet. Columnist Molly Ivins as Press Secretary? Good golly Miss Molly, Texas would never be the same.
Geraldine, are you going to put the old style sign on your door that says, "Gone to Texas?"

Ivins as Press Secretary? I'm on my way! (Texas produces marvelous women - Ivins, Ann Richards, et al. Can't say as much for a lot of the men - Bush, et al. but Kinky's fun.)

Who is Molly Ivins? Please elaborate.

An extremely funny, straight-talkin', clear thinkin' writer and political commentator who exemplifies the best of the gutsy ladies that Texas produces. (If I'm not mistaken, I think she's the one who coined the nickname "Shrub" for George W.)

You are right, she is the one who coined the phrase "Shrub" for him.

When I was at EPIC in March, many of the Texans told me their incumbent Governor is vulnerable. My cousins tell me the Governor is not all that powerful in Texas anyway, it is the Legislature. They are the major players. The Governors main authority is to appoint people to certain state jobs. If Kinky gets in, this will be a hoot.
Something tells me Texas will have more fun with Kinky than much of California is having with Arnold.
