Senator Larry Craig Action Figure

This past June Idaho Senator Larry Craig was arrested at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport for "lewd conduct" in a men's bathroom - in other words - propositioning an undercover male police officer for sex. The news came out in the media in August and of course he denied all allegations against him, saying he was not gay (yeah, right!). The funny thing is that Larry Craig is a notorious homophobe, voting against bills that enabled same-sex civil unions and to exclude sexual-orientation protection under a hate crimes bill. Recently several men came forward saying that they have had sexual relations or were propositioned by the infamous senator, including a male escort whom Craig was an alleged "client".
To my utter delight I present "The Talking Senator Larry Craig Action Figure"! He stands about 12" tall and wears a t-shirt emblazoned with his declaration: "I Am Not Gay." His limbs are bendable, so you can put him in all sorts of poses... even the famous "wide stance" the Senator refers to. Best of all, THE ACTION FIGURE TALKS! Press the button, and he delivers a portion of his Press Conference... "Thank you all very much for coming out today. I will read a statement: 'I am not gay. I never have been gay." Priceless!!
