Here's a good laugh for you: Kinky Friedman says he might run for Senate in 2008, as either a Republican or a Democrat, he's not sure yet.
There's a fresh round of rumors today that Kinky Friedman may be mulling a run against U.S. Sen. John Cornyn.
People of both parties have been in touch with him, said Laura Stromberg, who was Friedman's spokeswoman during his independent bid for governor.
"He's not calling them. They're coming to him," she said.
Friedman, who is finishing up his book on his race for governor, has said if he ran again, it likely would be under a major-party label given the obstacles facing an independent candidate.
Today, he said, "I think all options are on the table, but I certainly haven't given a lot of thought to running for anything. I've talked with some Republicans and some Democrats about various possibilities."
Tell ya what. If Kinky Friedman is on the ballot for Senate next November as either a Republican or a Democrat, I'll not only buy ten copies of his stupid book about his 2006 campaign, I'll tattoo "Why the hell not?" and "How hard can it be?" on my butt, one slogan per cheek. If he runs as both parties' nominees, I'll found a new religion devoted to worshipping him as a god. That would be only slightly less delusional than what Laura Stromberg is saying here.
Man. I guess silly season didn't wait for the filing deadline this cycle. Where do they come up with this stuff?Posted by Charles Kuffner on January 19, 2007 to Election 2008
