Not quite sure if this common truth extends to middle America, but here in New York the rent is too damn high and gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan possesses a certain part of the male anatomy to say so. McMillan, founder of The Rent Is 2 Damn High party (yes, the number two), has been making waves in the Empire State with his rants (akin to a mentally ill homeless man), muttonchops and skintight black gloves—Agent. Orange. Kills.
Now, the folks over at Herobuilders.com , a company specializing in custom and political action figures, have turned this crazed politician into a talking doll. For $49.99 people who collect kitschy things like this can display the pop culture hero on their mantel, coffee table or wherever else someone would put a kitschy thing like this. Spouting the famous phrase, “The rent is too damn high,” the doll is sure to be a conversation starter for those in the McMillan camp as well as his detractors. With a talking doll now under his belt and Saturday Night Live showing him the love, maybe McMillan has a fighting chance to win that coveted position in Albany.
