    Well, guess my dad's decision not to vote in the primaries is justified now.

    It's gonna be an interesting governor's race in Texas. But I think Perry will win, and he may get more than 50%. The Democrat (Chris Bell) is poorly funded, Strayhorn is clearly only running to further her anti-Perry vendetta, and Kinky's novelty will wear off.

    If there was ever an election year where a candidate like Friedman would do well, it's this one-not just in Texas, anywhere. Folks are dissatisfied with the status quo, and dissatisfied with the opposition for seeming to be part of the status quo. "What the hell, why not?" could be a very powerful political message.

    Maybe I'm not politically plugged in to the talk in Austin, but it's not like Perry is coming down the pike as the greatest thing in cowboy boots. Budgetary collapses, a politically disastrous redistricting effort, a legislative walkout and continued poor school funding doesn't exactly mean Perry's a hero here. The problem is, who besides Kinky inspires any sort of positive emotions?

    If the campaign turns negative, wonder if he'll be called hideous Kinky.

    Why not? Most recent occupants of that office have amply demonstrated that the true qualifications for that
    particular governors' chair are deliciously low.
