Kinky For AgCom!

Having survived the Democrat primary of March 4 for Agriculture Commissioner and advancing to the run off in May, Kinky Friedman, former front man for The Texas Jewboys and known for such classics as “Get Your Biscuits In The Oven And Your Buns In Bed”, is frankly baffled why the Texas Democrat Party establishment is opposing him.

According to the WSJ, “[Kinky] doesn’t understand why the Democratic Party has opposed him. ‘If they had a great track record, then I would say, ‘OK, maybe I’m doing something wrong…But when you look at their comprehensive record of failure over the last 20 years then you realize you gotta try something different’.”

Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

Friedman’s main issue is legalization of marijuana, calling it a states right issue. He believes this will draw Independents and GOPers to vote for him. As far as I can tell, while he claims to be a Democrat, many of his views are more Libertarian since even Rick Perry is calling for decriminalization of marijuana.

I don’t plan on voting in the run off—pulling a Democrat ballot in Texas would be a bridge too far for me, but if he survives, which he may since his opponent has vowed not to campaign or raise money, I will certainly look forward to voting for Kinky Friedman for AgCom in the general.
