I suddenly want spurs
When considering other states I'd like to live in, I have to say Texas is at or near the bottom of the list. I'm honest enough to admit that many of this is based on thin prejudicial ideas of the Lone Star state and its inhabitants. I'm sure all the people can't be superficial, racist yahoos.
OK. Settle down people.
I found this gent on the internet a few years back while searching for something "new and unusual" to give my friend Kelson as a birthday gift. Thus, Kinky Friedman became a favorite link in my habitual internet surfing.
For those of you who don't know, Kinky Friedman is a straight shooting independent candidate for Governor of Texas.
Q: What is Kinky's position on gay marriage?
A: Kinky supports gay marriage and equal rights for homosexuals. He believes that the constitution protects everyone. As he says, "I believe love is bigger than government. And besides, they have a right to be as miserable as the rest of us."
Statements like these make me want to pack up and leave New York. Elliot Spitzer just doesn't inspire me like this. In fact, I can't remember the last time I really had any fire in my belly about any candidate. How sad is that? I don't get any inspiration from politics anymore - just rage and disgust.
On the optimistic side, I find it a thing of beauty that there may be someone in (any)office with an actual sense of humor and a sense of justice.
Kinky Friedman for president in 2016?!?!
