The St. Paul Saints baseball team is again getting political with its new bobblehead promotion. After giving away presidential-themed souvenirs the last two elections and creating the Bobblefoot â€” a Larry Craig-inspired bathroom stall toy, complete with a tapping foot â€” the team is turning its attention to the still-unresolved Minnesota Senate race. The doll, 2,500 of which will be given away at the May 23 game against the Sioux Falls Canaries, will be a two-for-one: Al Franken’s face on one side and Norm Coleman’s on the other. The outfit: That of Sesame Street’s numerically obsessed vampire, The Count. (It’s dubbed the â€œRe-Count.â€)
Of course they will be playing our team – go figure.
