Kinky Runs in Texas

Kinky Friedman: humorist, songwriter, gadfly … governor of Texas? At the very least, his campaign is full of colorful quips – “I just want Texas to be number one in something other than executions, toll roads and property taxes,” – and choice souvenirs, like the $29.95 Kinky Friedman talking action figure.

So far, incumbent Republican Governor Rick Perry still has a substantial lead, with 35% of the vote, while Friedman is tied with independent Carole Keeton Strayhorn and Democrat Chris Bell with 18%.

It’s enough to have some Texans calling the match-up the best reality contest since American Idol.
