The Jewish Cowboy Gypsy on a Pirate Ship

A public service anouncement for all my Texan readers:


Since I've launched my spiritual quest to resurrect the Independent spirit of Sam Houston and Teddy Roosevelt and make that Lone Star shine again, I've been amazed at the number of you gypsies boarding my pirate ship. With a good tailwind, this ship should be at the governor's mansion by next November.

If we're going survive this cruise, the first step is getting my name on the ballot. The major parties have, of course, made this a very difficult task. But this is just the first port of call on the voyage, nothing we can't do if we all pitch in and start right away. Y'all need to do the Kinkster a favor and click here to download the Kinky Kit and start signing up your friends and family:

This puppy has already set sail. We'll be in Austin on April 20th for "A Spiritual Walk For Independence" across the UT campus. For more details on that event click here:

Please, y'all, spread ! the Kinky gospel. We're just getting started.

Thank you,
Kinky Friedman

I just wish I still lived in Texas so I could vote for him myself...
