KINKY FRIEDMAN FOR PRESIDENT?


The voters of Texas got it wrong in the most recent election for Governor.

Dead wrong.

Oh well, at least for one day the Kinkster was the Governor of the Lone Star State thanks to his appearance in a key scene for PALO PINTO GOLD, currently in principal photography at the Enchanted Springs Ranch just outside of Boerne. That's yours truly with Mr. Friedman just prior to his taking the stage in front of 60+ Western-clad townsfolk with Bexar County Judge Nelson W. Wolff, News-Talk Radio Revolutionary Chris Duel from KTSA and, of course, Little Jewford at his side. Writer/Director Anthony Henslee deserves a great big KFC ("Kinky Friedman Cigars") Corona for "righting a wrong," at least on the silver screen, as well as possibly giving us a glimpse of the future.

You see, the climax of this series of scenes has the Honorable Nelson Wolff saying: "Governor Friedman, in light of the fact that this is a presidential election year and not one of the current political candidates has the ability to think, all of us in Palo Pinto want you to know that if you decide to join in this race our vote is for you."

Kinky's reply: "President Friedman. Hmmmm, why the hell not?"

Why the hell not, indeed...

Watch for more updates on PALO PINTO GOLD in the days and weeks ahead.

Well, it certainly would not be without some personality and a lot of fun.
