Listen up kids! Now's your chance to get your own Christine O'Donnell witch action figure for just $39.95! Other treats from HeroBuilders,
makers of "world famous custom action figures," include a naked Scott
Brown (with fig leaf), a topless Anna Chapman spy girl (with gun), Larry
Craig in an "I Am Not Gay" t-shirt, Tony "The Wanker" Hayward with a BP Polluted Ocean Globe (with black snow), Nancy Pelosi inexplicably lugging a waterboard, and Rod Blagojevich for a mere $149.95 (with a fist full of hundreds.) Capitalism is a wonder.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
