One-liners on the campaign trail

Heralding tonight’s airing of the first two episodes of Go Kinky, the CMT reality show, today’s NYT in an article entitled “Following a Candidate Named Kinky” (page B1, by Ralph Blumenthal) not only prints some of the candidate’s better-known pronouncements but shares at least one or two new ones. This promises to be Kinky Friedman uncensored, in all his glory. The reviewer describes the art and person of Kinky Friedman as “performance art of a high order” and “an inspired satirist.” Whatever happens with the campaign, all the avid collectors here in Austin have been acquiring the complete Kinky line-up of campaign souvenirs, predicting that they can only appreciate in value over time. The talking action figure decorates many a desk around town. Will the real-life model ornament the governor’s mansion?
