The Sarah Palin Doll

I can't blame the company Hero Builders for trying to cash in on a cultural phenomenon, but did they have to depict a mother of five with her moose-knuckle hanging out?

Where's the Obama doll with a bulge in his pants?

Not since Al Gore appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone have we tried so hard to sexualize a candidate running for office.

At the risk of sounding like a prude, it's a bit creepy.

Just this week, Salon depicted her as a dominatrix, various articles have echoed Craig Ferguson's assertion that she's a naughty librarian type and now this.

I shudder to think what's next. The Sarah Palin vibrator perhaps? One flip of a switch and you can quiver just like her opponents!

Apparently, the media doesn't have trouble with strong women. The media has trouble with strong, attractive women.

I bet the Madeleine Albright doll would be wearing pants... loose pants.

"Moose Knuckle" would make a great mascot for the campaign.
