Bell to Kinky : Please Quit

Kinky Friedman received a telephone call from Chris Bell this week. The subject? Chris wants Kinky to drop out of the race for Texas Governor. Chris thinks that Kinky is siphoning off some of his votes. If the Independent quits, then Chris would gain votes. Probably...

I think Chris is correct. I also think that replacing Perry as Governor is a priority for Texan voters. That's why I'm a bit conflicted about my vote right now. So far I have committed to a Kinky vote. In addition I should add that I attended a Dem fundraiser that featured Bell as the final evening speaker. I was extremely underwhelmed with Bell's speech, and even more disappointed after speaking with him afterwards. But...

I'm going to sift through the Gov platforms in the next couple days and give Bell a chance to win me over. I hope Catfish will come along for the ride.

Yeah, Catfish intends to run through the races and do endorsements.

As of right now, I agree that we need a change NOW in Texas. However, I do not think that the Dems have done anything to deserve my vote. I think I'm more fed up with the Democrat party than I am the Repubs.
