    All he is saying is to get away from the blow-dried politicians on the left and right and start getting some stuff done. Make Texas great again.

    great != laughingstock

    Minnesota became the butt of national jokes politically, and the actual result of electing a grossly unqualified populist celebrity who ran on notoriety and sense of humor was a lousy four years. Jesse Ventura had the best of intentions, and tried to succeed by surrounding himself with outstanding people, but produced nothing but other peoples' punchlines.

    Friedman would get similar result for Texas. Barrel fish-shoot for Leno/Letterman/O'Brien writers. Bad days for Texas.

    Some times require that you accept circumstances as they are ... claiming blamelessness just doesn't cut it

    •  Yeah, you're right (none)
      Texas politics are so dignified now, what with Tom Delay, the redistricting fiasco, Dubya Bush, Rick Perry's hair, cronyism run amok...

      But electing Kinky? THAT's what will make Texas a laughingstock...

    •  Since you bring up Minnesota (none)
      Seems Kinky's got Bill Hillsman onboard, the guy who ran Paul Wellstone's campaigns.

      I am not currently Licensed to Practice in this State. Or yours.
