Ride 'Em, Jewboy, Part Two: Kinky Friedman Mulls Yet Another Run at Guv

This morning, the missus called from the road: "Kinky's on KRLD, talking about how he's going to run for governor again in 2010 -- as a Democrat." And, sure enough, that's just what he said -- needs, oh, $3 to $5 million, far as he figures. And over on KRLD-AM's Web site, they're running a poll to see if folks are interested in seeing the Texas Jewboy take on Governor Hairspray -- and, thus far, it's 59 percent fer, though the poll doesn't say how many folks have cast their votes. (Could just be Kinky and Little Jewford, far as you know.)

Me, I'm just using this as an excuse to run this photo again, which Kinky posed for back when we ran the Full Frontal section in the paper version of Unfair Park. Far as I recall, it was far more traumatizing for photographer Mark Graham than it was for Kinky. --Robert Wilonsky

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
