South Carolina GOP Sen. Jim DeMint had better watch out: His surprise Democratic rival, Alvin Greene, has already made good on a campaign pledge without even being elected to office.

Greene recently told a reporter for the Guardian that creating action figures in his likeness could stimulate job creation. And so it has come to pass.

The Charleston RiverDogs, a minor-league baseball team in South Carolina, is hiring people to help distribute 1,000 toy figurines at their game this Saturday featuring a taped-on picture of Greene’s face.

"Who better epitomizes the American dream that anything is possible than Mr. Greene?" Dave Echols, the team’s general manager, told the Charleston Post and Courier.
