Transcript kinky stuff FRIEDMAN, VENTURA MAKE STOP TO RALLY STUDENTS story b y A new face emerged with the start of the 2007 race for Governor. The cowboy- hat-sporting Kinky Friedman stirred Texas political affairs that lay dormant in past elections. He made headlines regarding his unconventional style of politics and his controversial quotes. In September, Friedman made negative remarks regarding Hurricane Katrina evacuees. In the same month, Friedman was quoted as an endorser of the legalization of Texas casinos. Though Friedman's antics worried the older generation, his popularity grew among the state's newest voters, college-age students. Friedman's efforts to bring out the young adult voters led him on a college tour, with UH as one of the stops. Coogs for Kinky, a student group in support of Friedman, sponsored the event with the gubernatorial candidate Jesse Ventura. Ventura, former Governor of Minnesota traveled with his colleague to promote "Kinky Friedman for Governor 2006." On September 27, the Houston Room filled with loyal supporters, curious voters and media outlets that covered the speech. Before his entrance, Friedman made rounds in the University Center, surrounded by cameras, meeting and greeting students.

James Lancaster, president of Coogs for Kinky, kicked off the rally with opening remarks of thanks and appreciation for UH's famous guests. One of Friedman's staff, with a booming announcer's voice, also gave a rousing introduction. In Friedman's trademark black cowboy hat and with a cigar dangling from his lips, he jumped into his speech, giving a clever interpretation of the word"politics"Jpoly means many and tics are blood sucking parasites.' He made comparisons to other opponents, especially incumbent Rick Perry, in saying "Perry didn't pick up the tab" during the mass Hurricane Katrina evacuation to Texas. Friedman targeted the largely student audience with the line "If you're old enough to fight, you can help save Texas." After Friedman's address, Ventura took the podium and encouraged the listeners to "give America's more choices." Toward the end of his brief time on stage, Ventura declared that if Friedman successfully acquired the office of Texas Governor, he "might run for President in '08." With that statement, the assembly quickly roared with applause and excitement. Evidently, American politics may be drastically revamped with the coming of more typically "Kinky" politicians running for public office. upoly means many and tics are blood sucking parasites"
