Former Texas Gubernatorial candidate, the Texas Jewboy, Kinky Friedman: Do you want to hear my political preference?” he asks. “I’m supporting Bernie Sanders, because I want to see a Jew in the White House!” he says with a mischievous howl. “If he wins, it will be the first time a Jewish family moved into a place where a black family just moved out.”

LMAO!! One of the reasons I voted for Kinky for Governor of Texas is because he has such an off the wall sense of humor..... Something really missing in Texas politics.

Yeah why have sensible policies, when you can make vaguely racist jokes?

As far as off color jokes go its a meh
Yes, but there's the addition of the context of it being said by a politico.

But I suspect now being in the Trump era, off-color ethnic jokes by politicos will become blase' ...

Yea, why have sensible policies in Texas when you can be indicted for corruption? Even our own Attorney General, who is in charge of enforcing the law, has been arrested for corruption, and his trial is coming up soon. By contrast, Kinky Friedman may be a little weird, but he doesn't have any court dates that could possibly send him to prison. I'll take Friedman any day of the week. LOL.

I think maybe you should explain that Kinky's band's name was Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jew Boys. ;)

Two song titles: "They Ain't Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore," "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed," and "Asshole from El Paso," to name a few.

He is a very talented musician, and a great person in general. Very laid back.

BTW, I counted three song titles in your post. Welcome to the world of bass playing. LOL.

You're right. I thought of that last song title while I was typing and forgot about "two."
