Christine O'Donnell Doll Shows Candidate Dressed as Witch

Posted:

She is hoping to solicit some action among voters in the midterm elections, but Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell may not be very happy with a new action figure of her on sale Tuesday.

After declaring in a new ad Monday night that she was not a witch, Herobuilders.com is offering dolls featuring the Tea Party darling dressed as a witch for $39.95.

Since O'Donnell won a surprise primary victory over nine-term congressman and former Delaware Governor Mike Castle, clips of her speaking about how she dabbled in a multitude of religions and came close to embracing the Hare Krishna faith have emerged.

She also said she had "dabbled in witchcraft" as a teenager.

The attention prompted her to release the campaign ad, in which she says: "I'm not a witch, I'm nothing you've heard, I'm you."

"None of us are perfect, but none of us can be happy with what we see all around us," O'Donnell says in the 30-second spot.

The 12-inch (30cm) doll, which features O'Donnell dressed in a black robe and a tall, pointy with hat, is the latest addition to the catalog of the doll manufacturer which most recently produced a likeness of Russian spy Anna Chapman.

Herobuilders.com owner Emil Vicale told Mediaite.com that he expected the doll to be a big seller.

However, he has already received word that not everyone is happy with the doll -- which can also be bought wearing an executive-style pants suit for $29.95.

"Some guy in a college said I was interfering with a political race. I think he left his sense of humor at the college he works at. It's all in good fun," Vicale said.

Herobuilders.com also sells action figures of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Sarah Palin.
