Ever Try to Eat Hot Buffalo Wings

dipped in ranch dressing and type on your computer keyboard at the same time? It's kind of what one might call a losing proposition. Don't even think there is anything ladylike about wiping the grease from your hands onto the keys and then onto your already greasy napkin.

I tried to post this morning but Blogger wasn't having any of that. I found, much to my dismay, that I could not even post comments on several of my Blogger Buddy sites. But I did find some gems while blog hopping.

Under the heading of Oh No He Didn't! From Jenn at
Reappropriate, this tidbit left me speechless:

This season, Survivor features 20 new cast-members trying to survive in harsh, untamed nature (completely authentic despite the well-fed six-man camera crew following sticking the camera in your face as you attempt to light kindling with two pieces of rock and a machete). Of note is the fact that this season marks the most diverse Survivor cast we've ever seen, with a whopping fifteen people of colour.

the twenty castmembers will be divided into four tribes... by "ethnicity"! (Burnett must think we're stupid if we think that "White", "African American", and "Asian American" are ethnicities. They're races; Burnett is just afraid of sounding politically incorrect, describing what he has nonetheless done).

Under the heading of There Just Might Be a New Sheriff in Town from Cheryl at No Ordinary Princess comes the story of Kinky Friedman. Can an odd Jewish boy with no clear political affiliations but a decidedly conservative bent grow up to be the governor of Texas? I doubt it but then what do I know?

Under the heading of New Age Philosophy and Let's All Feel Good, Michelle O'Neill at
Full-Soul-Ahead found a charming spot on the web called Story People.

She said she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful & life was so short.

You're the strangest person I ever met, she said & I said you too & we decided we'd know each other a long time.

Under the heading of I Never Damn Could Parse a Sentence, Scout at Neurotranscendence writes about bloggity grammar in a way that we can all understand. The woman is scary smart.
It's Friday. It's payday. Let's part-ay!


Blogger Kinky is Awesome said...

Great blog.

Help me get the word out that Kinky shares mainstream Texas values and he's not a liberal.

On my blog, for example, we've had some great discussion about whether Kinky is a "liberal." I think the debate rises from the fact that Kinky often jokes that he's in favor of gay marriage because gays should be as miserable as the rest of us, but you have to take those joking comments in light of the fact that Kinky didn't vote against the amendment to the Texas Constitution which banned gay marriage. Anyway, here's my thoughts:

Let's be careful about how we use that word "liberal" here in Texas. I think you'd do Kinky less harm among Texas voters if you called Kinky a pedophile than if you called him a liberal. As you already know, Texas is at least 60% Republican and if Kinky is going to win, he's going to have to do it with Republican votes (not by snipping off the pot-smoking fringe of the ess-than-40%-of-voters Democratic Party because even if Kinky gets 33% of the Democrats -- which is unlikely -- that'd only get him about 13% of the vote).

Here is why I believe it is quite inaccurate to call Kinky a "liberal."

Watch this video clip. It is hilarious, it is true, and it is politically incorrect as hell. Liberal politicians are too politically correct to admit the truth that "negro is a charming word." Whatever Kinky is, he's NOT a liberal.

Next, read up on Kinky's get-tough illegal alien plan and his 5 Mexican generals plan. Kinky's common sense border security plan is the straight up "minuteman" approach, not Perry's namby-pamby "let's set up cameras" approach. Make no mistake, Kinky is the only candidate brave enough to say we need armed military generals on our southern border. This is not a liberal plan.

Now consider Kinky's party affiliation. Kinky has run for office in the past as a Republican and he voted for Bush/Cheney in 2004.

Here is an excerpt from Kinky's interview with Ruminator magazine confirms that he supported Bush's Middle East foreign policy:

Question: So does this idea of the honorable cowboy have anything to do with why you threw your support behind President Bush in this last election? You did, didn’t you?
Kinky: Yes. I did in this last election, but I didn’t vote for him the first time.
Question: Who did you vote for in 2000?
Kinky: I voted for Gore then. I was conflicted. . .but I was not for Bush that time. Since then, though, we’ve become friends. And that’s what’s changed things.
Question: So it’s your friendship with him that’s changed your mind about having him as president more than his specific political positions?
Kinky: Well, actually, I agree with most of his political positions overseas, his foreign policy. On domestic issues, I’m more in line with the Democrats. I basically think he played a poor hand well after September 11. What he’s been doing in the Near East and in the Middle East, he’s handling that well, I think.

Now maybe you are like me and you were worried that Kinky showed liberal tendencies by voting for a tree-hugger like Al Gore. Well, rest assured that Kinky was mistaken when he said that. Kinky's public voting records confirm he didn't vote for Al Gore in 2000 because Kinky didn't waste his vote on any candidate from 1994 to 2004 when he voted for Bush/Cheney.

Maybe you think Kinky's a liberal because he's a Jew. Rest assured, Kinky's views on religion are well to the right of Perry's. Kinky wants to take time during the school day for prayers in schools, and he wants to post the Ten Commandments in public school classrooms.

Moreover, on another excellent edition of Scarborough Country, Kinky came out in favor of Joe Lieberman leaving the Democratic Party and Kinky acknowledged that liberals aren't pro-America:
SCARBOROUGH: Hey, Kinky, could the argument be that both parties are extreme, vote for the new independent?
FRIEDMAN: That could certainly be. I think the mood of the country is really, really independent. I mean, I think the winds of change are really blowing right now. And all the—the way I see Lieberman, he's very—he's pro-America, unashamedly, and he's pro-Israel. And these liberals are not.

Finally, Kinky has answered the question directly.

I've spent months fending off bed-wetting liberals who want to claim Kinky as one of their own. I have shown them that Kinky doesn't give a rat's a$$ about political correctness and that Kinky has run for office as a Republican and he's voted for Bush and he has immigration plans to satisfy the minutemen alongside school prayer plans to satisfy a Baptist minister, but still the liberals would not accept that Kinky is a dyed-in-the-wool conservative.

Even after I showed the liberals where Kinky said that the anti-war, anti-Lieberman wing of the Democratic Party is anti-American, those liberals still held fast to their misbelief that Kinky is a liberal.

Now, at last, we have an answer from Kinky Friedman himself:
"I'm not a liberal, believe me. I'm a compassionate redneck, far more conservative than I am liberal."

In summary, Kinky is NO LIBERAL! In fact, Kinky charts WELL TO THE RIGHT
of Perry on the issues that matter most to Texas voters.

Maybe people think he's a liberal because his name is Kinky?

; )

Thanks for the link Pam, and for all the other gems on this post.

I'm considerably more scary than smart, but thanks for the compliment!

I'm sure that's the case Michelle. You don't think the Bush family would nickname one of their own Kinky, do you? Thanks for leading me to storypeople. I love it!

OK Scout. You're smart and scary. But you're only scary because you're so darned smart ;^)

Thanks for the mention, Pam. I got burned on the Kinky business, not investigating my subject well enough. I wish there was someone of his ilk running for the Senate in PA...at least then I might feel I had a real choice.
