CAN KINKY LIBERATE TEXAS? OR AT LEAST TEXAS THINKING?

I like this Kinky guy. Robert Wilonsky’s Observer profile of Kinky Friedman gets beyond the one-liners. This is the kind of unconventional thinking that throws normal politicians into stutters:

For hours he pitches proposals that land somewhere between crackpot and genius. There’s one called The Five Mexican Generals, which he insists would stem the flow of Mexicans illegally crossing the Texas border. The plan is simple: Divide the Texas-Mexico border into five districts, appoint a Mexican general to guard each, keep $1 million in a bank account for each official and then dock the accounts for every immigrant who slips across the border.

Somebody tell me why that wouldn’t work.
