Politics, politics, politics!

Well, not quite — but today’s features are connected to the current election coverage. First up, as promised, there’s the review of the Barack Obama action figure! I’ve linked to Jailbreak Toys in the article, but you can also find Obama at Urban Outfitters stores and order them from a number of online retailers. I got mine from

And then there’s Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #105, which uses screencaps from “Angel” Season 3 to make fun of the actions that led up to the birth of VP candidate Sarah Palin’s latest child. Given that the details are pretty much all verifiable in online articles from the Anchorage Daily News (see the former article for more specific links), I refuse to believe that McCain’s campaign fully vetted this woman before offering her a spot on the ticket. Every medical article that I can find online indicates that a pregnant woman should go to the hospital immediately after her water breaks, yet Palin not only endangered her baby’s safety by waiting, but also got on a plane and flew all the way back to Alaska before doing so. Hell, she didn’t even alert the airline that she was pregnant! Given the possibility that she could have gone into labor in the air, not to mention all of the complications that can arise when one is giving birth to a baby with Down syndrome, it seems pretty clear to me that Palin’s poor judgment should disqualify her from holding any political office. Seriously, this shit doesn’t even make any sense.

And now my head is hurting again, so I guess I’ll end this here. Until next time, assuming President Palin doesn’t fuck things up so horrifically in an alternate future that the exploding carnage causes reverse temporal feedback and nukes us all in the present!

    The concept of Sarah Palin being vice-president (and president, once McPain bites it) fills me with uneasines and terror.

    Aside from that… very great article! I actually saw the Obama figure at a local collector’s shop, but it was at a painful $28.99 CN. Alas, I guess that’s what I get for being in Saskatchewan.

    And yes, Wes. I do remember Bucky O’Hare. Seeing him in that picture made me smile.

    If McCain and Palin get elected, you’ll probably be better off in Saskatchewan! Hell, the fact that they have a fighting chance of winning the election makes me wish I were in Saskatchewan too.

    <3 Bucky O’Hare! And keep smiling. 🙂

    BAWWWWWW, conservatives FTW.

    First, Wes, awesome toy review, like always. 😉

    Yet, one must ask about the Palin situation. And it’s a simple question: What. The. Fuck.

    And Fauna, nice to see a fellow Canadian post on S-C’s blog.

    The Obama fig is nice, but now I want a Sarah Palin action figure with a sound-activated semi-automatic shotgun and a vacant “holier than thou” grin with uninformed soccer mom rhetoric talking action.

  • I like Obama too.

    In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever liked a candidate (except Ralph Nader, so here I mean “electable” candidate) as much as Obama, before.

    Still, how dare you compare McCain to the Cryptkeeper. The Cryptkeeper is a much better looking, nicer, and more uplifting figure.

    Bwhahaha. Obama meets Faith Lehane. Flipping awesome. I
