An Election Campaign of NoteTexas is beginning a gubernatorial campaign; the current governor keeps appearing on my TV screen telling me what a great job he is doing; not everyone I talk to here agrees.
Now I was very surprised to realize I had forgotten that this race features a candidate who has long entertained me, Kinky Friedman, once of the band "Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys", later a mystery writer, and now with clear political ambitions.
You can read about Kinky Friedman's campaign at this site, volunteer to help his campaign, and maybe have your picture of Texas and its diversity broadened a bit.
I particularly like his campaign slogans, "How Hard Could it Be?" and "Why the Hell Not?"
