Kinky Friedman always struck me as a reasonable Texan – one of the two reasonable Texans I’ve ever encountered, in fact. And his songs are good. Unfortunately, he’s now outed himself as a fuckwit, or Bush supporter – the two terms are interchangeable.
His suggestion that "the worldwide mafia of France, Germany, China, Russia" is responsible for the suffering in Darfur is offensive and ridiculous. His claim that everyone is picking on America, rather than vice versa, is completely insane.
Even decent liberals seem to be being suckered into the absurd myth of American victimhood, which is sad. Oh well. I guess it’s back to Billy Connolly (incidentally, all the sanctimonious pricks who criticised his Ken Bigley joke thoroughly deserve decapitation…)
Update: only the sanctimonious pricks who criticised the joke on the grounds that it was offensive to the Bigley family deserve decapitation. People who criticised it on the grounds that it wasn’t funny are excused.
