Kinky on the Campaign Trail

I get a chance to talk to independent candidate for Texas governor Kinky Friedman about immigration and the Valley (a little bit) during last week's appearance at St. Mary's University.

My interview with him appears in this week's edition of The Paper of South Texas.

He's got his act down pat. My favorite quip from the Kinkster: "How can you look at the Texas Legislature and still believe in intelligent design?"

Please don't support Kinky! He's a crazy man.

Kinky has voted only once in the past 12 years, and that was when he voted for Bush/Cheney in 2004. Kinky has run for public office before, and he ran as a Republican not as an independent. To appear more independent, Kinky has repeatedly said that he voted for Democrats in 2000, but public records confirm that is not true. Kinky's far-right-wing immigration plan of building a 700 mile fence and outsourcing the job of policing our border to five Mexican generals is completely insane. Finally, the national news program where Kinky said he'd like to punish criminals by locking them up, throwing away the key, and "make them listen to a Negro talking to himself" is too weird, and when asked if maybe "Negro" wasn't a poor choice of words, Kinky's comment that "Negro is a charming word" didn't help.

Stop Kinky!
