My Kind of Politician, Part II

We’ve talked about Jerry Patterson, the Texas Land Comissioner, before.  This time he’s taking a dim view of running for U.S. Senate if Kay Bailey Hutchinson runs for Governer:

“Just like Johnny Cash, I’d definitely take my guns to town,” Patterson said. “Living in D.C. would be tough only because of the lack of gun ranges and available ammunition.”

Paraphrasing his quote from a recent West Texas land controversy, Patterson added “No guns, no hunting, no Senate.”

That is perhaps the best reason I have ever heard from a politician for not running for an office.  Read the whole thing.  It’s a hoot.
