"They ain't makin' Jews like Jesus anymore..."


For this week's Friday fun, check out Kinky Friedman's first animated campaign commercial here. I am absolutely certain he'll get enough signatures to be on the ballot for Governor in 2006. We can only hope that they'll let him debate Perry and Strayhorn.

Best line from the commercial: "I loooove Texas... in espanol."

I had expected a little more from the giant flaming menorah and sexy cheerleaders, but the dogs playing poker was dead-center. I also think "How hard could it be?" is the best damn campaign slogan ever.

UPDATE:
Here is a direct link to the story Jason pointed to in the Comments section. What is amazing about this is that it's proof someone's actually reading the Deadman.

"May the God of your choice bless you..." KF

For a candidate whose only strength is his sense of humor, his commercial wasn't even remotely amusing. I don't expect him to be substantive, but at least be funny.

OK, so it wasn't a gut-buster, but you have to admit there is something inherently funny about a self-professed atheist Jew in a black Stetson chomping on a cigar in some Jungian, "duality of man" way.

Part of the problem might be that he held back from personal attacks on his opponents. Hopefully we'll see some stuff in the future along the lines of "Better Hair than Perry" or "One Tough Texas JewBoy"...
