Alvin Greene, the Democratic nominee for senator of South Carolina, tells the Guardian about his plan for stimulating spending and job growth in America. It involves Christmas dolls that looks like him.

They can make toys of me and my vehicle, especially for the holidays and Christmas for the kids. That's something that would create jobs. So you see I think out of the box like that. It's not something a typical person would bring up. That's something that could happen, that makes sense. It's not a joke."
