Kinky Starting to Look Hinky

Let it be said, in my defense, that when asked whether or not I’d be voting for Kinky Friedman for governor of Texas, I said no. I can’t access the Valley Advocate online archives at the moment, but I was, I assure you, asked such a question, and I did say that I wouldn’t be voting for Kinky. He seemed charming, I said, but I’d learned my lesson with Arnold Schwarzenegger that while it’s amusing to elect charismatic, seemingly pragmatic, oddly named celebrities to high office, it’s not really a very good idea.

Now it seems to be coming to light that Kinky’s a bit of a racist. I didn’t know that, but I at least had the good sense to know that the answer, to someone running for office on the slogan, "Why the Hell Not?," is "Because that’s an idiotic slogan to run on when your job would involve representing the interests of millions of citizens."
