Year of the Independent...or not
From the Governing Magazine blog, on the possibility that 2006 will see a rise in independent candidates at the statewide level:
I can't name a single credible candidate for governor in 2006 who isn't a Democrat or Republican.
I can't say for certain if that's an assessment of Kinky Friedman's campaign or just a tacit admission that he's unaware of it. Given that magazine's primary focus, I'm inclined to say the former. Either way, I found it amusing. Link via Political Wire

I think the key word her is CREDIBLE. Kinky is a side show. Doesnt know his ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to governing.
Although neither does the current governor!
