Final Note

Now available: The Ron Paul action figure

Kai Ryssdal Jan 23, 2012

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.

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.
