Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

September 9, 2008 -

As reported by the St. Petersburg Times, Connecticut-based HeroBuilders is now pushing a Sarah Palin action figure with the buyer's choice of three outfits.

Depending upon one's taste, the Sarah doll comes in a Hillary-like pantsuit, the Lara Croft-ish outfit seen at left, or a risque schoolgirl get-up.

If you simply must have one, be prepared to shell out between $27.95 - $29.95, depending upon ensemble. The company also offers figures based on John McCain, Eliot Spitzer and John Edwards.

Can a Flash-based game be far behind?

I think I just threw up in my mouth...

Yes, yes I did.

Oh for heaven's sake.

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

Hmm, can I get mine in corrupt and hypocritical attire with abuse of power accessories?

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

Actually, you can only get Bush, Kywame Kilpatrick, FDR, and every US Congress member (aside from a few like Ron Paul) in that type. Sorry, Palin hasn't demonstrated those qualities yet.

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

 Does this come with a pull string that causes her to voice ways children need to be raised, oblivious to the fact that she is unable to do those things with even her own children?

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

Because kids listen to their parents 100% of the time...god you're an idiot.

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

 ..How you can be so oblivious is absolutely beyond me.

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

No, the above person is right.  You're an idiot.  Have you ever actualy been around a kid, at all, or do you remember being one?  Did you follow your parents rules at every moment?  Judging her like this is pathetic.  There are other things you can look at - pick one of those.\

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

I'm not judging her for having an imperfect family. I do judge her decisions in regard to her family. She choose to have a baby with down's syndrome ( I would've have done the same)  and with that decision comes great responsibility. This child will require a great deal of special medical attention, services etc....It is her responsibilty as a parent to be there for that baby. Please don't insult me by saying the father will do it in her stead...the father should be an equal part of this journey but she cannot adequately parent and nurture from the campaign trail.  To make matters worse she threw her 17 year old pregnant teenage daughter to the media wolves. She made her daughter the most famous pregant teeenager in the USA. Career ambitions should never come before your children NEVER!

And lastly...here's all you need to know about Gov. Palin....she is a proponent of censorship and book banning...she does not want our kids to read Harry Potter...come one get real!!! What utter and complete B.S.

 

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

I have noted the feminists who have worked so hard to show a women can have a family and also be a career women, have so quickly back tracked to slam Mrs., Palin.

Moreover you would have Mrs. Palin have an abortion to rid herself of her child. 

This is her choice. Roe vs Wade is about choice.

Please do your research outside the Drive by Media; an open mind approach would be refreshing.

Democrats should practice what they preach

RRR says, apparently, unaware of the great irony: "I have noted the feminists who have worked so hard to show a women can have a family and also be a career women, have so quickly back tracked to slam Mrs., Palin."

My dear, they are not slamming Mrs. Palin for being a career woman, they are slamming her and your party for being gigantic hypocrits. I have noted the countless Republicans who have worked so hard it discredit Hillary Clinton as a shrill, unchristian woman with weak family values, and who love to characterize Michelle Obama as an "angry black woman," who are suddenyl so tender and protective of Mrs. Palin. Seriously, can you imagine the outcry if Condie Rice or Mrs. Obama referred to themselves as "barracuda"???  The GOP record on women's issues has consistently been locked in the Victorian era.  And please, just because I am a woman hardly means that I am automatically on board with Palin's "let's all have a rapist's baby" mentality, or her notion that screwing up what little wilderness we have left is the answer to our energy problems. Please, let's really have a close look at the issues here and stop pointing hypocritical fingers.

 

Re: Sarah Palin Action Figures... Moose Sold Separately

This is to RRR. You advise the previous poster to do her research, but have you? Really? Because I can't believe that any salient human being who has done their due dilligence in researching these candidates could possibly support either Palin or McCain. McCain has told more lies and flip flopped more than any politician in recent memory. Did you know that during his stint as head of the Senate congress committee from 1997-2004 he proudly referred to himself as "The deregulator"? And now what is he blaming the recent economic collapse on? Deregulation. Says he's always been against it. A flat out lie. As for Ms. Palin, as you're basking in the glow of her pluckiness, you might want to consider that the heartwarming quote she pulled out of her speechwriter's rear, the one that went "We grow good people in our small towns with honesty, sincerity and dignity,” was penned by one Westbrook Pegler, a man deemed to be too much of a right wing, anti-Semitic whacko even for the uber-conservative John Birch society. (They ousted him in 1964 for his new-Nazi views. Look it up in any decent encyclopedia). One of his other recommendations was that that it is “clearly the bounden duty of all intelligent Americans to proclaim and practice bigotry.” I could go on. I've done so much research my fingernails are blunt. I've begged my Republican friends to convince me of why I should vote for McCain, but all they've come up with are unsubstantiated reasons to dislike Obama. So do your research. And I'm not talking about the Huffington Post or the Drudge Report, I'm talking reliable sources. After you've done that, tell me is McPalin really the team you want running our country?

Waste of money.

Mattsworknameargue that it's wrong, but then please admit it's wrong on ALL Fronts07/29/2015 - 2:06am
MattsworknameTechnoGeek: It's actually NOT, but it is a method used all across the specturm. See Rush limbaugh, MSNBC, Shawn hannity, etc etc, how many compagns have been brought up to try and shut them down by going after there advertisers. It's fine if you wanna07/29/2015 - 2:05am
Mattsworknamediscussed, while not what I liked and not the methods I wanted to see used, were , in a sense, the effort of thsoe game consuming masses to hold what they felt was supposed to be there press accountable for what many of them felt was Betrayal07/29/2015 - 2:03am
MattsworknameAs we say, the gamers are dead article set of a firestorm among the game consuming populace, who, ideally, were the intended audiance for sites like Kotaku, Polygon, Et all. As such, the turn about on them and the attacking of them, via the metods07/29/2015 - 2:03am
MattsworknameAndrew: Thats kind fo the issue at hand, Accountable is a matter of context. For a media group, it means accountable to its reader. to a goverment, to it's voters and tax payer, to a company, to it's share holders.07/29/2015 - 2:02am
Andrew EisenAnd again, you keep saying "accountable." What exactly does that mean? How is Gamasutra not accounting for the editorial it published?07/28/2015 - 11:47pm
Andrew EisenMatt - I disagree with your 9:12 and 9:16 comment. There are myriad ways to address content you don't like. And they're far easier to execute in the online space.07/28/2015 - 11:47pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Banning in the legal sense? Not that I'm aware but there have certainly been groups of gamers who have worked towards getting content they don't like removed.07/28/2015 - 11:45pm
DanJAlexander's editorial was and continues to be grossly misrepresented by her opponents. And if you don't like a site, you stop reading it - same as not watching a tv show. They get your first click, but not your second.07/28/2015 - 11:40pm
TechnogeekYes, because actively trying to convince advertisers to influence the editorial content of media is a perfectly acceptable thing to do, especially for a movement that's ostensibly about journalistic ethics.07/28/2015 - 11:02pm
Mattsworknameanother07/28/2015 - 9:16pm
Mattsworknameyou HAVE TO click on it. So they get the click revenue weather you like what it says or not. as such, the targeting of advertisers most likely seemed like a good course of action to those who wanted to hold those media groups accountable for one reason07/28/2015 - 9:16pm
MattsworknameBut, when you look at online media, it's completely different, with far more options, but far few ways to address issues that the consumers may have. In tv, you don't like what they show, you don't watch. But in order to see if you like something online07/28/2015 - 9:12pm
MattsworknameIn tv, and radio, ratings are how it works. your ratings determine how well you do and how much money you an charge.07/28/2015 - 9:02pm
Mattsworknameexpect to do so without someone wanting to hold you to task for it07/28/2015 - 9:00pm
MattsworknameMecha: I don't think anyone was asking for Editoral changes, what they wanted was to show those media groups that if they were gonna bash there own audiance, the audiance was not gonna take it sitting down. you can write what you want, but you can't07/28/2015 - 8:56pm
MattsworknameAndrew, Im asking as a practical question, Have gamers, as a group, ever asked for a game, or other item, to be banned. Im trying to see if theres any cases anyone else remembers cause I cant find or remember any.07/28/2015 - 8:55pm
Andrew EisenAs mentioned, Gamasutra isn't a gaming site, it's a game industry site. I don't feel it's changed its focus at all. Also, I don't get the sense that the majority of the people who took issue with that one opinion piece were regular readers anyway.07/28/2015 - 8:43pm
MattsworknameDitto kotaku, Gawker, VOX, Polygon, ETC07/28/2015 - 8:41pm
MechaTama31So, between pulling a game from one chain of stores, and forcing editorial changes to a media source, only one of them strikes you as being on the edge of censorship, and it's the game one?07/28/2015 - 8:41pm
