Voting for Kinky

RECEIVED Tue., Oct. 3, 2006

Dear Editor,
    I'm a-votin' for Kinky Friedman! Yes sir. I remember Mayor McClellan saying, "The voters are confused," the second time we voted down the South Texas Nuclear Project. Then "they" pushed it through again, timing the election for when the students were out of town. What kind of democracy is this where the moneyed elite keep on pushing until they get their way?
    That's former Mayor Carol Keeton McClellan Rylander Strayhorn, former Democrat and former Republican. Yeah, you can really trust her!
    And Rick Perry, he's just a loan shark land-grabber with helmet hair.
    And who knows who the Dem candidate is? All I know is when Victor Morales ran against Sen. Phil Gramm and had a chance of winning, the Democratic Party hacks didn't give him more than a small, insulting bit of money. Upstart uppity Chicano schoolteacher trying to act like this is a democracy where any American can hope to win! The nerve!
    Go Kinky!
