Kinky is a genius. With all the politicians in Texas acting like officers in the political correctness police, Kinky promisses to "de-wussify Texas."
According to a recent story in the Austin American Statesman
, Kinky is smart enough to realize "the more people I offend, the more people will like me."
Here are some other gems from that story:
"That's the problem with politicians; they don't want to offend anybody. In so doing, though, they offend all of us." Friedman later questioned any conflict
between cracking wise and delivering a message voters weigh seriously. "I'm not a politician," he said. "I'm a compassionate redneck; relate to me different than these guys or you won't get accurate results."
In a November CNBC interview, for instance, he was pressed on a line in his 1987 novel, "A Case of Lone Star," comparing New York to "a Negro talking to himself." Friedman said he saw nothing wrong and even said of sexual predators: "Throw them in prison and throw away the key and make them listen to a Negro talking to himself." Video excerpts appeared online on the Burnt Orange Report, a pro-Democrat blog.
Good stuff. I saw the video, and it's hilarious! Check it out!
When the politically correct principal at a Texas public school told Kinky he couldn't have his cigar on campus while he was addressing the students, Kinky dared the principal to call the sheriff because he wasn't going to give up his stogie.
Here's a story about it in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Based on a Zogby International poll last month for The Wall Street Journal
, Perry has about one-third of the vote. Democrat Chris Bell and Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn, an independent, both have about 20 percent, with Friedman close behind.
Apparently, Kinky gained votes after he was caught last month committing a heinous violation of Texas liquor laws by drinking a Guinness in a moving car during a St. Patrick's Day parade.
Now he's in trouble again.
A school administrator stopped him on his way into a high school in the Hill Country town of Ingram.
Friedman, as always, was smoking his trademark cigar.
It's against state law to smoke or dip tobacco on school property. The cigar had to go out.
But the administrator told him that under a local policy, he couldn't even carry it.
They agree on what Kinky said next: "Call the sheriff."
Nevertheless, Friedman spoke with the cigar.
