Cast one last ballot for McCain -- and save 60%!

Rage_maccain32 In the run-up to this summer's political conventions, we told you about Dover Publications'  presidential paper dolls by Tom Tierney -- ballot-thickness representations of both senators along with a hand-drawn selection of historically accurate wardrobe pieces.

One of those men is now headed for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., and according to an e-mail we received last week from Dover, the other one can show up at your address for 60% off.

That's right, the John McCain paper doll, complete with wedding outfit (white tie and black peak lapel tailcoat) and bullet-proof vest (from an April visit to a Baghdad market) among others, has been priced to move at just $3.20 at Dover's website

That's cheap enough you can buy one for the genuine, original maverick in your life and a whole bunch more for that regiment of red-state relatives that's always so hard to buy for.

One thing's for sure: Having a U.S. senator in your back pocket probably won't be this affordable (or legal) again any time soon.
