*Well looky here. The candidate for governor of New York from “The Rent Is Too Damn High Party” has inspired a talking doll. And why are we so not surprised at all.
A Connecticut based company is distributing the doll for $49.99. Candidate Jimmy McMillian inspired the talking toy with his great line, “The rent is Too. Damn. High.” And of course, those are the exact words the doll says.
The Associated Press says those words made him a one-theme political sensation when he spoke them during a recent 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 (30-centimeter) figures. Vitale says he’s seen the candidate only on TV.
