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.
Lead singer/songwriter of "The Texas Jewboys."
Named "Male Chauvinist Pig of the Year (1974) by NOW for his song, "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed."
