His 2006 ass-whipping at the hands of Rick Perry, in which Kinky Friedman took less than 13 percent of the vote, hasn't stopped the Friedman's gubernatorial aspirations. He's already got his eye on the 2010 election. Then again, maybe this is all just a ploy to sell cigars.
Either way, to advance the cause, Plano Kinky supporter Sean Robinson is asking bands to dedicate September 26 gigs to the Texas Jewboy's cause with "1000 Bands, One Day, Rockin The Vote For Democracy."
Bands, venues and promoters are asked to send information about their Kinky-supporting gigs to the candidate's 2010 campaign page, TheKinkster.org. And do remember that it's TheKinkster dot-org; I found out the hard way that mistakenly entering dot-com after that URL will lead you to a decidedly NSFW site.

But if you need to meet Friedman before committing to his cause, you're in luck. He'll be at Tobacco Lane On The Square (512 Main St.) in Fort Worth at 4 p.m. today and at Tobacco Box (8809 Lakeview Pkwy.) in Rowlett at 4 p.m. tomorrow to promote his new line of cigars.
