Elvis, Gates and Kinky Friedman

Perhaps unable to go on after Elvis left the building, Bill Gates is stepping down at Microsoft, to devote more time to his charitable foundation. The foundation has donated $10.5 billion in 12 years of operation.

Meanwhile, Kinky Friedman continues to slap around the other candidates, proving that if he were to somehow get elected Governor of Texas, we’d be in for an interesting time. His camp had this to say recently about candidate Carole Keeton Strayhorn asking to be listed on the November ballot as Carole Keeton “Grandma” Strayhorn:

“Strayhorn’s demand that her political slogan be put on the ballot is completely absurd and reveals a politician fast becoming irrelevant,” said spokesman Robert Black. “Kinky Friedman may tell jokes, but the Strayhorn campaign is teetering on the edge of becoming one.”

Maybe Bill should fund Kinky who should hire Scoble as the official Texas evangelist and podcaster. We already have a state bird and a state flower.

This would keep the band together and be good for Texas at the same time.
