Kinky is on the air
A Kinky Friedman talking action figure stars in the independent gubernatorial hopeful's first round of campaign T-V ads.
Those ads began airing today in Texas.
The musician and writer plans to run spots in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Austin and El Paso markets.
The ads feature a 13-inch figure at a podium -- answering questions from reporters.
"Can you get the Republicans and Democrats to work together," one reporter asks.
The doll responds: "I'm running for governor, not God."
Supporters can buy the talking action figure online or at Friedman's Austin headquarters for about 30 bucks.
