Via The Atlantic Wire's Elspeth Reeve, who has rounded up the best memorabilia of the 2012 presidential election, this six-foot-tall Rick Perry planter is being sold on eBay for $4,500.

The fertilizer company Cow Wow originally created it to commemorate the 2010 Texas gubernatorial race. In the above photo, the other gigantic Chia-like sculpture is a likeness of Democrat Bill White, whom Perry defeated in his re-election campaign last year.
