Anyway, I think they could make a special version of this doll. Maybe they could give it Karl Rove's face, and have it holding a gallup poll. Or even better, the final electoral map!. When you press the button it reads the final election day results and then it's eyes pop out, mouth drops open, and it poops!
Dang, that's a good'un. Perhaps that pooping doll could come in versions for Pat Robertson, James Dobson, and all the other wingnuts who saw their side door into Rove's white house slam shut. We could add a sound chip too, the sound of the gates of hell clanging shut behind them as the electoral landslide buries their evil dreams of a theocratic evangelical homeland in the USA.

Well yeah, and there was that donkey named Blago. Who knew?

Lived in Leesburg, VA back in 1975, quaint little town. One of my dear pals lives there, active in Loudoun County Dems, etc. Been a couple of years since I went through the town, grown a lot over the years.

I don't know, I sort of like the new painting of him walking on water.

1. Mug showing the 2008 electoral map, labelled "Yes We Can in 2012". When you pour in hot water, all the states turn blue.

2. Obama sweatshirt.

3. Refrigerator magnet of Obama in swim trucks. Comes with various magnetic outfits. (Sorry all you Obama bashers, a prison outfit is not one of them...)

4. Obama bobblehead.

5. Obama slippers. So you can show you support Obama from head to toe! Also, something comfy to slip into after standing all day at the national mall.

6. Obama & cabinet jigsaw puzzle. They stand in front of a map of the US, so once you puzzle out his cabinet you can then put the country back together again.
I LOVE number 1 but especially for REPUBS, it will remind them of Nov.4th!!!....



no Obama thongs???

Oh, yeah, the magnet with the outfits. Sounds like a fun thing for the fridge and takes no room in a suitcase.

What a thoughtful host your are. Got any floor space left?!
