I’m glad Gov Perry made this decision now. He wouldn’t be Governor if Kinky Friedman hadn’t siphoned off 12% of Texas voters from the dems. Thank you Kinky!
p.s. saw Kinky in the grocery store Friday. We shook hands and exchanged the usual pleasantries. He lays his cigar in one of the potted plants just outside the door and picks it back up on his way out. The man is a walking caricature and my favorite Jewish cowboy.
He is a character, and I’m soooo glad he didn’t get elected governor. LOL!
Pretty good cigars!!
I avoid Kinky when I see him.
I met him too at a political meeting in Austin where he spoke. He's a down-home Texas cowboy with a folksy intellectual streak who isn't PC and makes no apologies. Jewish or not, that's pure independent Texan attitude.
