Kinky Ain't No Liberal!

We've had some great comments here lately. Here's my thought from one discussion where we have been debating whether Kinky is a "liberal." I think the debate rises from the fact that Kinky often jokes that he's in favor of gay marriage because gays should be as miserable as the rest of us, but you have to take those joking comments in light of the fact that Kinky didn't vote against the amendment to the Texas Constitution which banned gay marriage. Anyway, here's my thoughts:

Let's be careful about how we use that word "liberal" here in Texas. I think you'd do Kinky less harm among Texas voters if you called Kinky a pedophile than if you called him a liberal. Texas is at least 60% Republican and if Kinky is going to win, he's going to have to do it with Republican votes (not by snipping off the pot-smoking fringe of the less-than-40%-of-voters Democratic Party because even if Kinky gets 33% of the Democrats -- which is unlikely -- that'd only get him about 13% of the vote).

Here is why I believe it is quite inaccurate to call Kinky a "liberal."

Watch this video clip. It is hilarious, it is true, and it is politically incorrect as hell. Liberal politicians are too politically correct to admit the truth that "negro is a charming word." Whatever Kinky is, he's NOT a liberal.

Next, read up on Kinky's get-tough illegal alien plan and his 5 Mexican generals plan. Kinky's common sense border security plan is the straight up "minuteman" approach, not Perry's namby-pamby "let's set up cameras" approach. Make no mistake, Kinky is the only candidate brave enough to say we need armed military generals on our southern border. This is not a liberal plan.

Now consider Kinky's party affiliation. Kinky has run for office in the past as a Republican and he voted for Bush/Cheney in 2004.

Here is an excerpt from Kinky's interview with Ruminator magazine confirms that he supported Bush's Middle East foreign policy:

Question: So does this idea of the honorable cowboy have anything to do with why you threw your support behind President Bush in this last election? You did, didn’t you?
Kinky: Yes. I did in this last election, but I didn’t vote for him the first time.
Question: Who did you vote for in 2000?
Kinky: I voted for Gore then. I was conflicted. . .but I was not for Bush that time. Since then, though, we’ve become friends. And that’s what’s changed things.
Question: So it’s your friendship with him that’s changed your mind about having him as president more than his specific political positions?
Kinky: Well, actually, I agree with most of his political positions overseas, his foreign policy. On domestic issues, I’m more in line with the Democrats. I basically think he played a poor hand well after September 11. What he’s been doing in the Near East and in the Middle East, he’s handling that well, I think.

Now maybe you are like me and you were worried that Kinky showed liberal tendencies by voting for a tree-hugger like Al Gore. Well, rest assured that Kinky was mistaken when he said that. Kinky's public voting records confirm he didn't vote for Al Gore in 2000 because Kinky didn't waste his vote on any candidate from 1994 to 2004 when he voted for Bush/Cheney.

Maybe you think Kinky's a liberal because he's a Jew. Rest assured, Kinky's views on religion are well to the right of Perry's. Kinky wants to take time during the school day for prayers in schools, and he wants to post the Ten Commandments in public school classrooms.

In summary, Kinky is NO LIBERAL! In fact, Kinky charts WELL TO THE RIGHT of Perry on the issues that matter most to Texas voters.

Let me tell you, I voted for Perry last time, and after his tax bill this session I made up my mind never to vote for Perry again.

I was thinking that I would have to hold my nose and vote for Grandma Strayhorn until I read your blog. Now I'm another Republican for Kinky!

Kinky Ain't No Republican Either

Kinky does not "joke" about gay marriage, he believes they have rights too. (On the gay marriage issue, "marriage" is a religious term defined in the bible and should not be used in any laws. Everyone getting "married" should do it in a church that accepts them, not at the court house. We need to employ Republican word change tactics.) Second, Kinky participated in Ann Richards' campaign for governor against George W.

I just don't want Kinky hijacked by any party. He is both. Republicans have some good ideas as do Democrats. This is the whole idea, and by saying he is not liberal you are right, but do not imply that he is a Republican, he is INDEPENDENT.

On a side note, if elected, Kinky said he would start a Governor Hotline and a radio show to "reconnect with the people of Texas." What a guy.

I don't care if people like thelonghaul recognize Kinky's a Republican (the folks at Free Republic sure do) or not so long as they vote for him.

But as far a saying Kinky's not a Republican because he "participated in Ann Richards' campaign," that's bullshit.

First, that was over a decade ago. Second, Kinky didn't vote for Ann Richards. Third, and most important, saying Kinky's not a Republican because he participated in a campaign where he didn't vote is like saying he's gay because he "participated in" a gay pride parade. So long as it doesn't go beyond participating in the parade, it don't count.

I agree with The Longhaul: Kinky wasn't joking when he said he is for gay marriage. Read the quote in context and you can tell he is serious.

How many "conservative Republicans" would be for gay marriage? He may not be a liberal, but Kinky isn't Republican, either!
