Readers have written in with further comments about presidential action figures. There’s concern that a Ford doll would keep falling over and that the LBJ figurine would try to pick up the Blues Clues dog by the ears. The Taft figure might need a special-sized carton and the William Henry Harrison is only likely to have a very limited warranty.
Dangerously (how would you get the Byrd to shut up?) there’s also demand for talking senators (“Imagine the Daschle figurine complaining about everything you do”) and, incredibly, for a House/big house combo doll – a ‘James Traficant’.
Not much call yet for vice presidents. Of course, the Cheney figurine is only available at an undisclosed location.
