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.

Andrew EisenI don't doubt that many are truly interested in the journalistic integrity. The problem I'm often seeing is they seem to have no idea how or where to talk about it.09/18/2014 - 11:46pm
Andrew EisenDidn't word that well. Busy at work. I've seen people claim that GamerGate is solely about ethics and transparency in games journalism and then go on to show that what they're really after is silencing those who talk about gender issues in games.09/18/2014 - 11:45pm
Kronodebate. Becaus apparently people who only post on Reddit are supposed to police twitter before they're allowed to question anything about the people involved.09/18/2014 - 10:40pm
KronoI highly doubt many, if any are using journalistic integrity as a cover for harassment. The people harassing are essentially trolls. They aren't interested in subtle. More often it's othe other way around. People use "but X is being harassed" to shut down09/18/2014 - 10:38pm
Andrew EisenAnd exacerbating everything is the fact that all the cries of ethics violations have been obnoxious and easily proven false.09/18/2014 - 8:59pm
Andrew EisenProblem is, I would imagine, the sheer number of people who are using journalistic integrity as a cover for their harassing actions or only bringing it up on the false pretense of journalistic integrity.09/18/2014 - 8:47pm
Andrew EisenHaving said that, I can certainly see how one would be frustrated if they truly just wanted to talk about journalistic integrity and someone said they were one of the people harassing Sarkeesian, Quinn and others (though I've seen no examples of that).09/18/2014 - 8:44pm
KronoThat's been the common refrain, that talk of journalism ethics is just an excuse to harass people.09/18/2014 - 8:44pm
KronoLines like "like a partial compromise with the howling trolls who’ve latched onto ‘ethics’ as the latest flag in their onslaught against evolution and inclusion." are taring everyone questioning the ethics as a harasser.09/18/2014 - 8:43pm
Andrew EisenKrono - Except, none of the articles were talking about gamers complaining about journalist ethics, let alone called them white male misogynists. They were talking about the gamers who were harassing others.09/18/2014 - 8:36pm
Kronomakes plenty of sense. It's rather hard to dismiss someone as a white guy running a sock puppet when they've posted proof they're a woman, or black, or another minority.09/18/2014 - 8:32pm
Kronothat any critics of journalists were white guys that hated women, and could be dismissed as such. It seems to have helped some. It's kind of difficult to maintain the white guy narrative in the face of a bunch of women and non-white guys. So the tag09/18/2014 - 8:32pm
Kronothat, someone vented on a #gamergate 4chan thread about being dismissed like that. The suggestion they got in return was to organize their own hashtag in response, with #NotYourShield being suggested. Thus the tag came into use to combat the undercurrent09/18/2014 - 8:32pm
Kronomuch more general problem. And while several of the articles were fairly tame, they spured a bunch of people to dismiss any critics of the journalism involved as misogynistic men. Usually with insults aimed at the geek stereotype. After about a week of09/18/2014 - 8:32pm
Andrew EisenSleaker - Not sure what that has to do with anything but yeah, the gender percentages differ depending on how the study defines what a gamer is.09/18/2014 - 8:32pm
KronoThe rhetoric pushed by the spearheading articles that the "gamers" complaining about journalist ethics were just angry white male misogynists, insulted a lot of people that were previously fairly neutral. It made it go from a Kotaku problem, to a09/18/2014 - 8:31pm
Krono@Andrew I'm not surprised overlap exists. I expect much of it is a rush to jump on the bandwagon, either by reporting on the original articles, or rushing out their own. The point is that was a major flashpoint, much bigger than the reddit mass deletion.09/18/2014 - 8:31pm
Sleaker@AE - well the gamer trend was described with stats on Factual Femenist. Only 1 in 7 males plays games 20+ hrs going into college vs 1 in 40 females. So gaming is definitely still male dominated despite fake stats trying to say otherwise.09/18/2014 - 8:30pm
Craig R.Do conspiracies ever make sense? The fact that people are now having to defend themselves against nutjob websites like Breitbart.com shows how far down into the rabbit hole we've all been forcibly dragged.09/18/2014 - 7:05pm
