    Kinky isn't gonna win

    Kinky Friedman for governor of Texas is all but a lost cause it appears, as Chris Bell and Rick Perry have too much money for Friedman to contend with. He doesn't even have TV spots (shouldn't the other candidates be limited to make things fair? Whatever). I just hope Perry doesn't win on account of the Dems spreading their votes out amongst Kinky and (GASP) Strayhorn.

    I did hear one funny thing though: A group of ten or so residents came into the dorm about an hour ago and one of them proclaimed that he voted for Perry already. He was then lambasted by ALL OF HIS FRIENDS and one other guy who was also in the lobby. Suffice it to say, Perry is NOT liked here in Austin.

    I'd rather see Perry get in office than Strayhorn.

    But then, Kinky isn't that great of a choice either.

    Holland is actually up for elections aswell. Sadly, it's a very boring subject.

    Austin is the liberal capital of texas (as well as the literal capital of texas!), what did you expect?

    I have never figured out why Texas has produced many Republican presidents, but elects Democrat Congressmen frequently. Kinda like here in NC, we always have a Dem governor, but GOP Senators.

    Well we have a lot of blue area, mainly out west, along Mexico border, and the Austin area, so that's more of a disctrict thing then a state thing.

    Both of our senators are Republican, and had either of them ran for governor (as many thought Kay Bailey Hutchinson was going to) I would be voting Republican.

    Kinky > Perry > Bell > Grandma

    I'm not even going to bother voting for a senator in Florida this year.

    I looked through all their websites and not one of them is worth the graphite it would take to make a mark next to their name on the ballot.

    On the other hand by not voting you're handing whoever has the most votes one extra.

    I just think that its sad that Perry will most likely win with about 40% or less of the states votes.

    I blame Perry for the toll roads that have taken over Austin. He will NEVER get my vote.

    I'm sure glad the gooberner race in Idaho isn't in doubt. All I'm wondering is if Butch Otter is going to come to the Saturday morning coffee down at the lodge. He is a member of Oriental #60 after all

    For the folks here...

    When DOC and I decided to meet we chose a Starbucks to meet at and we spent a good 20 minutes on the cells trying to find the damned place. All that road construction made it nearly impossible to find anything in that area.

    We finally found the place and spent a good 2 hours drinking coffee, talking DII and oogling the womenz.

    Good times. :)

    How has no one joked about his name being Kinky yet? Am I still in the OTF?
