Because it is Friday and no one will probably notice, I figure I’ll be safe with my new Over Reaction figure in this particular pose, but come Monday his right hand will be down by his side and in his left will be up high holding up a quote/tweet of his that I find particularly interesting. This way it will appear as he is in a debate with my other political action figure, the Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, who is already there holding one of his quotes/tweets.
I’ve still got my Bernie Sanders action figure sitting on my desk and every Monday I have been writing one of Mr. Sander’s quotes on the back of a business card and taping it to his upraised left hand. Today a co-worker wandered by, checked out the quote and wondered out loud if their was a Trump action figure. Being the ever helpful person I am, I mentioned that the folks who made the Bernie figure had an April Fools joke about making one in the vein of Darth Vader. I said, “I wonder if they are going to make one of Trump now that he was elected?” “They started with a Hillary one in 2008 and when Barack Obama was elected they commissioned one of him” “Why not a Donald?”
So I went to the FCTRY site and sure as crap, they are going to do a Trump figure. They are calling it an Over Reaction Figure and taking pre-orders. Expected delivery of some time before the inauguration. Well…I just had to get one. I can replace the Bernie figure with the Donald and place some of his memorable tweets on a card in his hand.
Making good on his promise to personally thank each and everyone of the donors to his Presidential Primary Campaign, Senator Bernie Sanders is on his way to visit (track his progress) yours truly for my $1 contribution. He is starting out in Cranbury, NJ today and should be here hopefully by Saturday because he has to turn right around and get to Philadelphia, PA by Monday for the start of the Democratic National Convention.

Not only am I discussing politics on my blog, but now I’ve gone and donated to an actual politician. I just donated $20 to a Kickstarter fund to create a Bernie Sanders “Action” Figure. If funded they are going to donate one of my dollars to his campaign.
It will be fully funded1 on March 30th and they are supposed to ship in July, just in time for the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia. Sure hope by then he is not just a footnote in the 2016 election.
For all you Hilary supporters you can get an Action Figure of her right now because these are the same folks who created one for her campaign back in 2008 and they are still available on their site — FCTRY.
Those of you who live in one of only a handful of states that the personal use of marijuana is perfectly legal2 you might want to consider the Burners for Bernie set of homemade ceramic pipes. A portion of the proceeds from this item also go the support the candidate.
