Jimmy McMillan: candidate for guv, now an action figure



The rent may be too damn high, but the price to own your own Jimmy McMillan is just right., the same company that made the Christine O’Donnell witch doll, released today a doll of everyone’s favorite fast-talking, glove-wearing gubernatorial candidate.

The 12-inch figure comes in two versions: the standard doll, and one that talks, featuring sound clips from the debate that made him famous.

The doll ships today, and you can get yours at

McMillan’s online fame has exploded since the seven-way gubernatorial debate at Hofstra University last week, where he dropped such one-liners as: “As a karate expert, I will not talk about anyone here,” and, “The Rent is 2 Damn High Party feels if you want to marry a shoe, I’ll marry you.”

And this weekend, “Saturday Night Live” parodied McMillan, which he said makes him a shoo-in to win the election.
