Kinky Friedman Endorses Former Rival Rick Perry

Kinky Friedman, who told Rocks Off "let's have term limits - exhibit A is Rick Perry" in 2009, and that his dog could run Texas better than Perry had, has now decided that the best way to get his former rival out of the governor's mansion is to put him in the White House.

That's what the Texas musician, humorist, author, animal activist and subject of the play Becoming Kinky says in an essay published today on The Daily Beast. Although there was no love lost between the two in the 2006 gubernatorial campaign, Friedman insists they're big buddies now, after Perry called to give his vanquished opponent a "pep talk" a few days after the election. "You might call what Rick did an act of random kindness," Kinky says. "Yet in my mind it made him more than a politician, more than a musician; it made him a mensch."

Written in his usual tongue-in-cheek style (though we don't see how there's any room, what with that ever-present cigar), here are five of the Kinkster's more salient reasons for backing the Aggie.

He Has Good Taste In Music: "He once sat in on drums with ZZ Top. A guy like that can't be all bad."


He's Experienced: "He's been governor since Christ was a cowboy."


He's Spiritual: "In the spirit of Joseph Heller, I have a covenant with God. I leave him alone and he leaves me alone. If, however, I have a big problem, I ask God for the answer. He tells Rick Perry. And Rick tells me."


He's a "Git 'er Done" Type of Guy: "While Obama is busy putting the hyphen between "anal" and "retentive" Rick will be rolling up his sleeves and getting to work."


He's Not Obama: "These days, of course, I would support Charlie Sheen over Obama. Obama has done for the economy what pantyhose did for foreplay."


That's Kinky for ya. Read his entire essay over on the Beast.

Why is Kinky relevant anyway? He is a dumbass, do-nothing that talks too much. He has now officially backed a right wing, religious fanatic who is taking the credit for a state riding the energy boom.

Let's see:

1. In office forever2. Fanaticism, mysticism and radical statements are his red meat3. Riding an oil boom and taking credit for it

Sounds like Hugo Chavez!And, for the record, tying Israel's national interest to ours makes me sick.

Kinky.  I thought you had better sense.  There is one thing Pretty Boy Perry does better than most, bullshit. When I saw where he held a fucking prayer orgy I wanted to puke.  How pathetic.  But, he learned from the best whore of the gospel, George W. Christ. 

Let's face it, the voting evangelical has several things that make them stand out:  a) they are typically able to believe in fantastic stories like people walking on water, making them easier to influence & manipulate; b) they vote their convictions, however bizarre; & c) they are on a mission from God thereby making them dangerous as hell. 

So, fuck you Pretty Boy Perry.  While we're at it, fuck all Evangelicals.

Hey Kinky, stop mangling the Yiddish.  If someone were up for mensch, it certainly would NEVER be debatable.  I mean, what planet do you live on???

Maybe this'll give Perry the edge he needs - to LOSE!  When will Progressives and Liberals get it that this dog Kinky just don't hunt?

Fuck this guy. He's not funny, he's not thoughtful, his music is generic and derivative and his spoiler role in the last few Texas elections insured that first George W and then Rick Perry rose to national prominence. On top of that, his cigars are terrible. Seriously, I've tried them.

So fuck off, Kinky Friedman. You don't give a shit about the well-being of Texas or the United States, and that you actually endorse the chest-beating and nerd-mocking of blowhards like W and Perry makes you just another part of the problem, nothing less and certainly nothing more.

OK, in order to stay completely honest, I feel compelled to admit that the cigars aren't bad. That company should really consider hiring a new face for the label, though.

Well, they usually get an education.  And that's a start.  I'm a Leftie myself.  Didn't make that clear and guess it would be confusing since I expressed disappointment with some of the Left's former love affair with Kinky.  To that, I say that being different or oddly standing apart does not equate to a Leftist platform.
