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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
