AUSTIN One once ran for office on a promise to challenge Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to hand-to-hand combat while swimming in the Gulf of Sidra.
Another is a flamboyant private investigator with an international reputation as the real James Bond, who participated in the exhumation of Lee Harvey Oswald.
A third is a San Antonio doctor who paints and wants to teach Hispanics they need to learn to govern themselves.
The fourth is a Prairie View A&M associate professor who says blacks need to stop thinking of themselves as victims and believe they can accomplish anything.
The fifth is a Fort Worth school teacher who laments that the Democratic establishment has it in for him.
Collectively, they are the long-shot Democratic candidates for governor who could win their party's nomination only through the kind of lightning-strike luck that would turn them into the feel-good movie of the year.
The state's news media will focus on Houston Mayor Bill White's bid to be the Democrat nominee in the face of a well-heeled challenge from hair-care millionaire Farouk Shami. The winner will take on the victor of the three-way Republican contest between incumbent Gov. Rick Perry, U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and activist Debra Medina.

In other words, the usual rodent moonbat kookfest.
A look at the democrats........
A Kookfest, but interesting to watch.

Pinging your governor’s race list!
Freepmail me or ping me from the original thread to get on/off the 2010 Texas Governor's Race ping list.
“Farouk Shami” has a great South East Texas ring to it. I’ll pull for Faouk.
A kookfest maybe but it'll make Bill White seem "rational" by comparison. Good cop/Bad cop.
Jim Hightower convinced Kinky Friedman to drop out of the race (even HE was had greater potential to pose a challenge White than these guys).
BTW, do you think Rick buys some of his hair care products from Shami???
Wouldn’t that be a hoot!!!
LOL. Perry is probably what help make Shami a billionaire.
People outside Houston/Harris County probably don't know Bill White.
I hope the Rats allow all of this parade of fools to participate in their debates. It should prove loads of unintended humor.
I can imagine during the debates Bill White rolling his eyes, saying under his breath “do I really have to be here?” ;)
Texas Governor Shami...
Nahhhh, doesn’t compute for me...
