NY candidate inspires doll

NEW YORK (AP) - October 28, 2010

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.
