Kinky Runs For Texas Office

Controversial writer KINKY FRIEDMAN is the latest celebrity to launch a career in politics.

The humorist and songwriter, real name RICHARD FRIEDMAN, is serious about becoming Texas' new Governor in 2006.

But the man who penned the song THEY AIN'T MAKIN' JEWS LIKE JESUS ANYMORE admits he'll be the first one to question his election if he gets the job.

He says, "If I'm elected, the first thing I'll do is demand a recount.

"I think it will be refreshing having an amateur in that office, because remember, it was professionals who gave us the TITANIC, and it was an amateur who built the ark."

Friedman insists ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER's successes as California's Governor gave him the incentive to run for office.

He adds, "He really opened the door for us. A lot of people down here are saying this is not so crazy."
