Kinky Friedman Comes To Town

The Jewish Cowboy, along with Texas Poet Laureate, Steven Fromholz, were in Tyler, Sunday helping to raise money for the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch, an organization that rescues abused and abandoned dogs.  KLTV 7 caught up with the musician-turned-politician at Troyer Interior Construction where the event was held, giving his take on this year's presidential candidates.

"I like this Irish fella, Obama," said Friedman, getting a laugh for those gathered around him.  "I like John McCain, and I like Ron Paul."  Kinky said he also plans to run as a democrat in the 2010 race for Texas governor.
