NEW YORK – The New York gubernatorial candidate from the "The Rent Is Too Damn High Party" now has a talking plastic "hero" doll that repeats his catch phrase.
A Connecticut company that makes action figures is selling one of New York governor wannabe Jimmy McMillan. Priced at $49.99, the McMillan doll announces,
"The rent is Too. Damn. High."
Those words made him a one-theme political sensation when he spoke them during a debate, wearing black gloves and mutton chops.
Emil Vitale owns the online company Herobuilders.com. He launched his latest product on Monday and by Wednesday sold a few hundred of the 12-inch figures.
Vitale says he's seen the candidate only on TV.
He also makes a plastic Sarah Palin, Barack and Michelle Obama and other talk-of-the-town figures.
