This final note today, the Marketplace entry in the sometimes super PACs do more harm than good sweepstakes.

The super PAC that's supporting Ron Paul -- RevolutionPAC, it's called -- is out with a new fundraising idea today: A collectible action figure of the candidate himself.

I could stop there, but this is really too good. For just $94.95 -- plus $7.50 shipping and handling -- you can get either Commander-in-Chief Ron Paul or Superman Ron Paul. They're 12 inches tall, the website tells us. Comes equipped with a mini-U.S. Constitution.

Also? Comes fully clothed. So there's that.

Love the Ron Paul version of Superman! Ironically, when the Congressman was first asked to pick his favorite superhero on the campaign trail, he pleaded the Fifth Amendment: http://youtu.be/m_GiWjuA_aQ

Rendered with a collarbone fit for a superhero.

Those action figures are a cool way to raise money; however, the back of the action figure box lists the power to sign executive orders. I do believe Dr. Paul believes executive orders are unconstitutional and has been quite clear on that point. I find it interesting that his super PAC would put that on the box. Maybe I don't understand what is meant by that. In any case, I love Ron Paul and his grasp on the things that are truly important. I truly hope he wins the nomination.

He does not approve of using signing statements to make laws but he has no problem using them to undo all the bad previous ones. There are legit uses for the signing statements but presidents often go too far.

Kai, you say "...sometimes super PACs do more harm than good...". And what is the harm here? They are raising money! Sure, the citizen's united decision is bad but it is the current rule... At least Ron Paul is open, consistent, trustworthy and transparent. (Can't say that about the others.) I am a bit sensitive about the undeserved bad press that the MSM is giving Ron Paul. Have you checked out his super pac?http://www.revolutionpac.com/defense/ He has the highest support among our US troops of any candidate...etc... This note from a former 2008 obama delegate who is disillusioned and I am seeing Ron Paul as the only option in 2012. Thanks! -Bob O
