Upon the kings' third Kinky Friedman 2006 candidate for governor of Texas.
Formerly of Kinky Friedman the Texas -- boys in the -- -- -- make -- like Jesus anymore.
-- -- -- -- it's an honor that ought to be official antichrist so the fox news network.
I had you know that's mind my business cards hear that -- reform pass.
That's what they force me to put a limit and -- don't and.
Very good brother.
Aria and Dylan all right -- Lola ordered or your regular.
Well -- Rick Perry -- candidate all of a sudden right aren't.
You ran against him in 2006 and now you're -- had a nice things about -- unlike what you did when He ran against them for governor.
Well you know retire incapable of resisting -- others.
-- -- and -- is an idea.
Well -- I have said.
In the past but what I've done under the agreement it is about hashes are to be thrown at Rick -- Hear what the heck do they tell.
Well but right but and I didn't know I.
There's some things but one thing personal at a personal level -- I did.
Campaign against the -- bitter political enemies.
With the crips and bloods really ganged up -- makers -- ran as an in the.
And that's who differed -- -- Republicans Democrats which which of the crypto which of the blood on the way.
Let's call the Republicans -- -- And there are -- blood as the reds of the Republican to be the red anyway but so.
What what -- a loss so I was I refused to concede.
Yeah and I and I drove up and in 1937 Smith and amounts.
And three days later.
Rick Perry culminated with a -- -- it's a very gracious kind of a pep talk.
And nobody else would call -- about the way you know and realism and winning and losing them.
Yeah the nature of politics of life -- -- but don't.
But -- did and He was really He was a match I mean.
Funny -- and the word mentioned Rick Perry to me don't belong in the same sense.
Well He is -- that impress me in and now of course today.
You know I don't know what Obama is doing on on Martha's Vineyard playing golf there but that.
-- come on I guess like a right wing talking point dawn on me -- allowed to go on vacation every game of golf.
Now He is but -- I mean they'll have been conned a little bit but Obama because He.
He actually is very similar to reckon that they're both great candidates there there are great candidates and what -- can take that away from yeah.
You know law Obama should get credit for getting bin Laden.
Yeah I think He get credit for what He does but He should also get credit for saying no comment to the young people of -- -- revolution.
How did I understand a lot of people on the left which you were more aggressive in progressive and in ways like that.
But but but some kind of guy Rick Perry isn't and -- a you would you support him for president.
Well I mean I mean at this point I think I would support.
-- if all in Islamabad over Obama.
Really come on really I -- any.
You will you -- to have to Perry and immigration you and after Perry and all kinds of stuff.
Right I think Rick is that there's there's a lot like Obama in this respect that both of them loved to stay perpetually behind the per -- and you and I don't.
I mean I'm not I'm not trying to put -- -- on a pedestal here I'm just saying and if you were president you'd be the kind of guy I believe.
Who would take unpopular.
There and that's why -- never get elected.
Well that that's it and that's what bad people that's what politics is a fundamentally dishonest profession you've got to understand that and not to -- -- Is Rick Perry the candidate is not -- -- -- Rick Perry -- the governor Rick Perry the president and his -- say whatever it takes to get elected.
But that's not the real deal.
Well now here's here's what I think I've been reading this William Manchester two volumes on Winston Churchill.
And I've ever read about -- -- fairly recently.
And the -- the fact is that.
You never know.
Where greatness is gonna come you know you don't I mean you look at Obama's campaign -- was brilliant all the hope and change and everything else -- -- he's gonna do something.
So when you don't get it or at least you don't see it happening.
It register now a guy like Rick Perry.
He's a governor -- -- the -- of this country very inspiring to you.
There want to white stupid for the most part of the -- but what could very well very wealthy man who are connected to their political parties.
And have a lot of power and and not Arab -- correctional.
Well you when you put Rick Perry in that category.
Yeah a light stupid guys noticed -- Number he's been governors of Christ was a cowboy is -- -- Don't know -- is not stupid we're not -- at all but but.
I've watched the Democrats go from Harry Truman to Harry Reid you know and and whatever whatever you -- Harry -- what become notes to me.
Had -- these people are just so busy mocking the Tea Party.
Is always good -- they don't realize.
That the Tea Party has that kind of spirit the Democrats used to have yeah they had a fair -- -- Barbara Jordan and Richards and Molly Ivins and then -- -- I've been accused of Tea Party being to raise this not all of them but too many of them.
And I think He got a bunch of -- white people are very angry and often that anger comes out in ways that are pretty ugly.
Well like Barbara Jordan that dale Barbara Jordan made the constitution was was her Bible.
You know she also warned of the political correctness destroying the country and balance if it's a young Richard Pryor walked into your studio you couldn't make a -- of him today.
Well amid -- -- -- -- you -- boy when you talk a lot about a year your whole career has -- some political correctness so.
You -- you may be right.
Could -- up freemen have a career today if you're starting.
Well it seems to become a back the song you mentioned that you reference -- vacancies would Jesus anymore has landlord and a and not a lot of other words back and -- been -- and I saw and it's been people understanding where it's coming from and.
Well that's but that's always come with me you created that -- -- the fight bigotry.
Yeah yeah if it's gonna happen against bigotry -- -- was used against me in the campaign by the Democrats by the way themselves are racists here you know and and now.
Basically what I -- as -- one of the last male male but hasn't been hammered down here.
And I think that's a good thing an important thing to being and I'm -- -- Rick Perry.
And you know if the issue is going to be jobs and the economy this is a nuts and bolts guy.
And black of course Israel public -- The -- that the other day that the and even those self respecting Mexican would sneak across the border to get -- Rick -- -- Net net net net net the best equipment that you would support them over Obama.
Say what you would support Perry over Obama.
Well at -- Point I'm and I'm here you know -- -- I'm I'm not torture I think I think Obama is busy putting the hyphen between angle and -- The government cannot answer would you vote for -- area rebel would you do.
But it autumn archer then and -- want to do is the sixteenth amendment what I usually with a -- of the moment.
He's running for office and -- Republican primary.
Yeah and he's gonna say anything Littlefield polarized.
But I agree with them and I think you do to that there's too damn many lost taxes regulations -- committees bureaucrats in this country.
I think I mean I think we've lost sight of the right regulations which -- the implosion of the economy.
We need to have some oversight.
Republicans don't want any regulations and they want to do away with government so.
I'm not exactly where you are -- that one.
And I went on.
I mean I I'm I'm square in the middle I really.
Really honestly think that these two political parties -- are the problem.
Paramount but we can't get away -- is one of the parties is only win.
Ballot they don't want your ideas all they want all they want is to give money to the person I think is going to win.
-- they want power yup finally one thing about Rick -- that you view came up with that I didn't know.
The -- apparently He once played the drums for ZZ top.
That is correct He did do that well -- He sat in on -- let's put it that disease -- -- -- -- -- Again that's the cool factor I didn't think exists that with -- Rick Barrett.
Well you know -- -- California have -- -- reading that -- book it is clear that this man was a political joke for forty years.
-- -- and He was 65 years old.
When they when they realized.
Jesus this is the one guy that could save those -- western world civilized world from Hitler and you don't know where it's going to come from an and it's not inconceivable.
That a guy like Rick Perry will have some epiphany.
When he's elected president it -- -- I mean that is patently ridiculous to be talking about.
Well you know the Obama people.
Want him to get the nomination legacy be easier to beat than -- run.
Yeah I think that's probably would probably right I mean the one guys that that I.
Due respect in the Republican Party is it is it is Chris Christie who I think.
I've I have seen him take stands on the left and stand.
-- sit up He set up to the anti Muslim sentiment New Jersey when He appointed a Muslim judge.
Well what did He you know He makes his own decision who doesn't want the party tell the politicians -- to -- -- you wanna know why but why so many politicians were so angry at Blagojevich.
When you and I thought it was really funny.
You know I mean to be ever -- therefore.
By April when they've been charged with.
But the -- there's all these guys are just like him except that got a little more -- talent there -- little more sophisticated than He is that they do the same damn thing.
And if you tried that in real life.
You get the football coach 200 bucks let your kids play or give the -- a couple hundred bucks when He stops you for speeding then what happens to me.
I'm very interesting so we'll see where this evolved I wanna know of I still want to find out -- -- went with if there's a Rick Perry vs Obama.
Match up I wonder which way the -- there's gonna go on the island where to go to give.
That's -- -- -- so whenever anything special.
-- -- we've got -- -- working out of local Billy Bob Thornton and nothing's going to be terrific.
And we're doing these.
Early work and if you've ever -- tried to read you know something He wrote 25 years ago without slicing your risk is it's an experience but.
But this step is.
It's selling very well -- the through you go to the web site can -- -- our economy go to Amazon and apple I don't understand all that stuff.
But that -- that we -- it to -- -- coming out this great man in black tequila.
Or national election month and we salute -- relevant and Johnny Cash.
And -- you -- a politics now we ever run for office again.
Well I I that's a question that I.
When I have a a decision like that -- -- -- the war what I should do Allen and then He tells Rick -- it would help.

Regarding your choice -- thank you very much.
