Kinky Friedman in Newsweek

Regardless of official endorsements, we are all Independents. So without further ado, here is a brief excerpt of Newsweek article on Kinky;


Friedman claims he’s in the race because he needs the closet space, but the idea to run came after a near-death experience in Cabo San Lucas a few summers ago. Swept to sea by a wave, Kinky ended up stranded on a jagged cliff for more than 24 hours with nothing but a soggy cigar. His friends thought he had faked his own death, but Friedman had an epiphany. “I had achieved a lot of my dreams,” he says in a serious tone. “And I decided that I wanted to see younger Texans have the chance to achieve their dreams, just like I did.”

  1. While Grandma’s heart is in this race, so is Kinky’s. I strongly believe that out of all the candidates trying to oust Perry, Kinky has the superior ability to motivate, inspire, and lead the Texas Legislator to swift and effective action.

  2. Thelonghaul, since not everyone at Independent Texans voted for endorsing Carole, I felt I needed to include a ‘kinky’ post. (have to remember to sign of as the ‘poster’) I am not sure of anyone’s ‘ability’ to motivate or inspire changes in the Texas Legislator. Politicians can still try to undermine an Independent Governor who does not have a party behind them and prepare the way for another Republican take over. It depends on the issues that are going to be tackled (I think) and if the politicians in the Texas Legislator are getting pressured by their constituents to back up anything a potential Independent Governor proposes. It’s not a one person persona that will seal the deal, you’re dependent on many other factors and that is mainly people.
