Governor Rick Perry has just scored himself a Kinky endorsement.

Kinky Friedman wrote a lighthearted column for The Daily Beast supporting the Texas governor for president.

I have been quoted as saying that when I die, I am to be cremated, and the ashes are to be thrown in Rick Perry's hair. Yet, simply put, Rick Perry and I am incapable of resisting each other's good charm, Friedman wrote.

Friedman is a former country singer who ran against Perry for governor as an independent, finishing fourth but garnering a significant amount of media attention for the campaigns frivolous nature. His notable positions included the dewussification of Texas, and his campaign slogan was My Governor is a Jewish cowboy, a play off of the Ronald Reagan slogan My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys.

In the column, Friedman also had some harsh words for President Obama.

These days, of course, I would support Charlie Sheen over Obama. Obama has done for the economy what pantyhose did for foreplay, he wrote. Compared with the rest of the country, Texas is kicking major ass in terms of jobs and the economy, and Rick should get credit for that, just as Obama should get credit for saying 'No comment' to the young people of the Iranian revolution.

Although the column was mostly satirical, Friedman did highlight the strengths of the Texas economy under Perry.

More to the point, could Rick Perry fix the economy? Hell, yes! Friedman wrote. Texas is exhibit A; Rick's fingerprints are all over it. He's been governor since Christ was a cowboy. The Lone Star State is booming. The last time I checked, Texas is kicking in a hell of a lot of the U.S. GDP. Unemployment is lower than the vast majority of the other states.

Predictably, Perry has not released a statement about the endorsement.
