Who Said All This Nonsense?

3. Who said "Mexico is not a poor country"?

4. Who said "good fences make good neighbors, and, Mr. Fox, help us build that fence"?

5. Who said "I will divide the border into five jurisdictions, assigning one Mexican general to each and providing a trust fund for that general"?

6. Who said "all of these politicians are afraid of offending Hispanics ... I want the border off the evening news until we get something resolved"?

Everyone should check out the website in the URL field of the 'Stop Kinky' comment. You can see exactly what the far-left Democratic Party hit machine starts doing when it feels threatened.

And here are some responses for those 20 idiotic questions.

1. Who said we should punish criminals by sending them to prison and making them "listen to a Negro talking to himself"?

Someone who's known as a humorist?

2. Who said "Negro ... is a charming word"?

Someone who also thinks that Negroes are charming?

3. Who said "Mexico is not a poor country"?

Someone who is aware that it has the highest per capita income of any nation in south or central america?

4. Who said "good fences make good neighbors, and, Mr. Fox, help us build that fence"?

Wasn't the first part Robert Frost and the second part a satire of Ronald Reagan? Sounds like something someone with a bit of wit and cultural literacy would say if he wans't concerned about political ideologues using it against him.

5. Who said "I will divide the border into five jurisdictions, assigning one Mexican general to each and providing a trust fund for that general"?

Someone who wants to use Mexico's corruption against itself?

6. Who said "all of these politicians are afraid of offending Hispanics ... I want the border off the evening news until we get something resolved"?

Someone who wants to actually solve the illegal immigration problem?

7. Who said the Tejano protesters marching in favor of immigration reform are "half playing hooky"?

Someone who is willing to state an obvious truth that even you should admit if you're not just lying about all of this.

8. Who said "every crazy redneck in Texas is already supporting me"?

Someone who's not bigoted against rednecks?

9. Who said we should grant "amnesty for hard-working illegal immigrants already in this country"?

A lot of sensible politicians, including many in your party.

10. Who said "I'm not pro-life, and I'm not pro-choice. I'm pro-football"?

Someone who realizes the abortion debate is ridiculous and overblown and who decided to make a joke.

11. Who said "I have mixed feelings on parental notification" about abortions for girls under the age of 18 and "on the counseling requirement, I'm not sure, but I know the less I talk to social workers, the better. No issue with the public-funding restrictions, but I would want to investigate further."?

Someone who actually thinks about issues instead of following a political plan laid down by special interest lobbies?

12. Who said "you uppity women I don't understand why you gotta go and try to act like a man"?

Someone who feels comfortable making a joke because he's not a humorless drone.

13. Who said "I am not anti-death penalty"?

A hell of a lot of people in Texas.

14. Who said "let's do away with the death penalty"?

Also a belief held by a lot of people.

And if the same person said both #13 and #14 perhaps he had the wisdom to change his mind.

15. Who said of Bush's Iraq War "I agree with most of his political positions overseas, his foreign policy"?

Someone who's not running for a national office with any foreign policy power at all.

16. Who said what Bush has "been doing in the Near East and in the Middle East, he's handling that well, I think"?

Someone who's concerned about terrorism?

17. Who said my "voting record doesn't look strong, but my voting record is better than Dick Cheney's"?

Someone who's voted in Presidential elections, which Dick Cheney previously admitted to not doing.

18. Who said "I am going to see non-denominational prayer and the Ten Commandments put back in the schools"?

An awful lot of people, unfortunately.

19. Who said we should turn over public school physical education classes to corporations and charge them whatever they will pay to "get their hooks into the athletes while they're still young"?

A humorist willing to consider innovative solutions to problems?

20. Who said "I've been stoned a lot of times ... and I don't regret any of it ... I quit doing cocaine when Bob Marley fell out of my left nostril"?

Someone who can make a pretty damned funny joke. It's a pity that some people have no sense of humor at all.

Dave:

Thanks for stopping by and answering those questions.

I felt it was only courteous that I drop by your blog, which I enjoyed. When you describe the Bush cabinet you'd like to see, I agree with some of your hopes and disagree with others:

"Here's the line-up I'd like to see:
Secretary of State: Rudy Giuliani
Attorney General: Fred Thompson
Secretary of Defense: John McCain
Director of Homeland Security: Condoleeza Rice (or staying as Nat Sec Advisor)
Secretary of Housing: Jeb Bush
Surgeon General: Ron Paul (just for fun)
Republican Ticket in 2008: Giuliani/Rice (winning)"

I mention this because I wouldn't characterize myself as a far-left Democrat as you assume, and so I mention this because I suspect you wouldn't have imagined that I might agree with some of your cabinet selections.

Also, you should know I haven't decided between Bell or Strayhorn. I like the idea that Bell took as strong stand against Tom DeLay's empire of corruption and I like the idea of fiscal prudence and bi-partisanship which Strayhorn promises to bring to the office.

My objection to Kinky isn't that he's too conservative (Strayhorn is more conservative on lots of issues). My objection is that Kinky is running as a joke and without a coherent platform that you can agree with or disagree with and, further, that Kinky's holding himself out as something he's not.

For example, did you note how Kinky's different statements on immigration are all over the map? Kinky tells different things to different audiences, and that rubs me the wrong way.

As another example, did you note how Kinky's statements on the death penalty were in complete contradiction to one another? If Kinky had changed his mind, that would be OK, but that's not what has happened. Before and after the Max Soffar trial, Kinky said he's NOT against the death penalty. In fact, his website says that right now. At the Soffar trial, however, Kinky testified under oath that he is AGAINST the death penalty. Well, which is it? Again, Kinky tells different audiences totally different and totally irreconcilable things. That bothers me.

I suspect that we agree on more issues than you suppose. For example, you seem nonplussed at Kinky's statement number 18 (where Kinky said "I am going to see non-denominational prayer and the Ten Commandments put back in the schools"). I feel the same way. Likewise, you recognize that Kinky makes the abortion issue into a joke. I share your recognition of that fact.

Thanks again for stopping by.

Thankfully someone is putting something out on that idiot that isn't a joke!

For Dave and anyone else that sees the humor in "Negro is a charming word" - please feel free to explain it to this Negro at danijohnson99@gmail.com.

I'm just not understanding...but I do think the rednecks will. Who you so eloquently state he's not bigoted towards...

Who's met Kinky in person? Hands up where I can see 'em! To all of you who haven't yet, he's bouncing all over the state speaking, meeting and greeting--largely for free. He's a friendly guy, a good man, and willing to chat. Look him up and vote Kinky Nov. 7th.

I think the news reporting about Kinky's campaign does not delve into the substance of Kinky's positions on important issue or his general fitness for office so I'm trying to gather some information on what kind of governor Kinky would be.

My point is, if you agree with Kinky, support him.

If you don't agree with Kinky, find another candidate.

I have met Kinky and I agree that he's a friendly guy, a good man, and willing to chat. I have also met Carole and Chris. They are equally friendly, good, and willing to chat.

If we were electing the president of our glee club, it would be a close call between those three candidates.

Since we're electing a governor in a state where we are suffering the adverse effects of having a shill in that office for several years now, Carole and Chris are hands down better candidates than Kinky.

Kinky is horrible! I would think he'd be polling under 5% in any state but Texas where his support is probably between 15% and 20% (but thankfully the kind of people who are so ignorant that they'd support a candidate like Kinky without first figuring out where he stands on important issues are also the kind of people who don't vote so I bet Kinky get's less than 10% of the vote).

Kinky ought to change his slogan to "NOW INTRODUCING THE NEXT POLITICAL STAR FROM THE STATE THAT GAVE YOU GEORGE BUSH."

We all need to remember the story of the woman who came up to Adlai Stevenson after a great speech in l952 and said, "Oh, Governor, you're going to get the vote of every thinking American." And he said: "Yes, Madam, but what I need is a majority."

Our Republican incumbent has proven to be a failure for the ills of our state. Carole Four-Names/Two Parties/One Independent is not going to do the deed for us. The Libertarian cannot pull enough votes. And Kinky is ... Kinky.

Fortunately, the candidate left is one who is forward thinking, honest and has "we the people" in his heart.

"We" need Chris Bell to garner a majority of not only the "thinking people," but every Texan who knows change is necessary.

I have been on the fence for a while now, but I’m finally no longer considering Kinky as an option.

My problem with Kinky is basically this: we have the worst governor in history, and we have three opponents to the governor who are dividing the anti-incumbent vote in a manner that virtually guarantees the governor's re-election, and so anyone disinterested in re-electing the governor must seriously consider the three alternatives.

You have Strayhorn. She's a Republican, but not as Christofascist, mean-spirited, or corporatist as Perry, and she’s raised a ton of money.

You have Bell. He's a Democrat and has the institutional support of the Democratic Party, but he’s neither terrible charismatic nor very well funded, but generally he’s reasonable on the issues and not as mean-spirited as Perry.

Then you have Kinky. He talks one way, but acts another (he makes pro gay marriage jokes but then doesn't bother to vote when the gay marriage amendment is on the Texas ballot; he says he's not anti-death penalty but then he testifies at Max Soffar's trial that he's against the death penalty and tells the anti-death penalty crowd he'll impose a moratorium on capital punishment; he says he voted for Gore in 2000 but his voting records confirm he didn't vote at all from 1994 to 2004; he tells an anti-Bush crowd that Bush isn't too smart and he's messed up but he tells a pro-Bush crowd that Bush is an honorable cowboy who did a good job in the Middle East and that's why Kinky voted for Bush in 2004). Ideologically, Kinky's plans run from the farthest right-wing nonsense (his anti-immigration blather about 5 Mexican generals) to bed-wetting liberal pablum (his plan to outlaw the declawing of cats) to almost every half-assed idea in between. Plus, one cannot escape the conclusion that while Kinky stands no chance of getting elected he is succeeding wildly at reviving his music and book sales with his campaign.

One of the three non-incumbent candidates has got to go because the anti-incumbent vote is very strong but it cannot stand to be split three ways. Of the three candidates, Kinky is the one who is ideologically incoherent, Kinky is the one who is running as a self-promotional joke, and Kinky is the longest of the longshots because he lacks Bell's organized party support and Strayhorn's money. Kinky is funny, but Texas is in bad shape and the future for the Texas we are leaving to our children isn’t a laughing matter. It’s time to cull the heard. Kinky, we love you, but you have to go. And please endorse either Bell or Strayhorn on your way out.
