Mint In the Box!

12 04 2012

Much was made recently of the decisions of the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum and the Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor’s Center to sell a John Wilkes Booth bobblehead doll action figure in their gift shops, and the subsequent decisions of those entities to discontinue the sales of the item in the wake of a public outcry. I, of course, could not resist the opportunity to get one for my library. It came today. I think some of the earlier stories manipulated JWB by purposely tilting his wobbly noggin in such a way as to make him, somehow, more sinister in appearance. With his head on straight, he doesn’t look any crazier than Senator Jim Lane of Kansas.

In All His Assassinistic Glory!

Mine will go next to my mint-in-box “Malibu Stacy as Lizzie Borden” special commemorative doll.

I would buy a Jim Lane figure if it had that hair.

I’m glad you got a Booth bobblehead!

A Braxton Bragg bobblehead with the eyebrow could be a big seller too.

He plays for Kansas, right?
