Sharp and the serpent's tooth

A couple of comments from this morning's Austin American-Statesman:

A former aide to John Sharp has launched a Web site encouraging the Austin resident to seek the Democratic nomination for governor next year, although Sharp said he hasn’t peeked.
“Haven’t had the guts to look at it,” Sharp said.
Right. And from Perry:
Luis Saenz, Perry’s campaign director, called Sharp the “candidate of the week for Democrats. First Chris Bell, then Kinky Friedman, who knows? Could be Strayhorn next week.”
Saenz needs to read Texas Monthly. Kinky's getting a better reception from Republican groups than he is from Democrats.
