I got this email from the Kinky Campaign, posted by Christopher Cook. Since I have to run to the polling station, risking not car bombs and sniper fire, but my boss' wrath for being a few minutes late, I am posting this instead of writing something clever. Which, come to think of it, would be a first:
The Homestretch!
Friends and neighbors, we're down to the last hours and minutes of the campaign. Everything we have worked so hard for over the past 2 years comes down to this: if the voters turn out in force, Kinky Friedman will be our next governor! Get out and VOTE!

This isn't going to be easy, but we can do it! We're not going to waltz to victory; we need to claw and scratch and fight for every single vote.

If you have already voted, thank you! You've taken the most important step in electing Kinky, but there's still more you can do.

Encourage everyone you know to get out and vote for Kinky on Tuesday. Offer to take someone to the polls who may not be able to get there on their own. Come by Austin HQ at 701 E. Ben White Blvd. and make some calls Monday or Tuesday between 10:00 AM and 8:00 PM. If you can't make it to HQ, call us at (512) 326-5465, and we'll set you up with some phone numbers to call on your own! You'll need access to a fax machine if you want to call remotely!

If you have not yet voted, election day is this Tuesday, November 7th. If you are a registered Texas voter, there is no excuse for not getting to the polls on time. Take a friend or two with you to the polls. Vote early and get to work late. Take a long lunch. Leave work early if you have to. We can only win if Texas sees a massive turnout, so get out there early and vote Kinky!

We've been saying all along that Kinky's voters are the 71% of Texans who didn't bother to vote in 2002. If we can bring a million new voters to the polls on Tuesday, we'll be making history as we install the first independent governor in nearly 150 years. Get ready for a Kinky administration!

"The cavalry ain't riding in to save us, folks. It's up to us to save Texas." -- Kinky Friedman

You know the politicians are counting on apathy. You know they're in it for their own gain. The system is closed and both parties want to keep it that way. Disaster awaits us if we stay on their course. So reach down deep. It's not going to be easy, but nothing good ever is. Work the vote, get out the word. We have until the polls close Tuesday night.

Texas needs you.

The Kinky Friedman campaign
-Go Kinky!

UPDATE!: I voted today, and I am proud to say that I did not vote for a single Republican. Nor for a single Democrat. Both parties are full of politicians eager to feed at the trough of taxpayer money. Where possible, I voted for Libertarians! And I did not vote for anyone running unopposed.
