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.

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

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.

Mattsworknameof players, over and over for the last seveal years. Among non RPG games, which make up the vast majority of current games, I think that you still see a large scale disparity between male and female in the AAA industry.07/01/2015 - 1:36am
Mattsworknamewilson. Out of RPG players yes, thats true, and in pc ciricles im not suprised, but RPGS make a small fraction of Console games these days and while pc gaming is seeing a resurgance, MMOs are actually retracting in size , as shown by WOW losing millions07/01/2015 - 1:33am
Matthew Wilsonhere is the study to prove it. http://www.pcgamer.com/researchers-find-that-female-pc-gamers-outnumber-males/07/01/2015 - 1:17am
Matthew Wilson@matt wrong over half of rpg players, both singleplayer and mmos, are female.07/01/2015 - 1:15am
MechaCrashRight, women don't usually play AAA games because none are aimed at them because they don't play them because none are aimed at them because okay you see where I'm going with this.07/01/2015 - 1:11am
MattsworknameI think the better path is this, more games built to give you the Choice of playing as male or female, and give the females good voice actors07/01/2015 - 1:08am
Mattsworknameup more then a fraction of the AAA games industry, but they make up a much larger part of the moble market.07/01/2015 - 1:04am
Mattsworknameandrew is right, to a point, as you are seeing a slow increase of women in games, but the sales shows that the lions share of gaming money comes from a male demo, and while andrew is right that it is changing, it's gonna be a LONG time before women make07/01/2015 - 1:04am
Andrew EisenI think more professional gamblers should get into games publishing. They'll play the odds but they'll also take risks to maximize profits.06/30/2015 - 11:57pm
Andrew EisenAt the end of the day, the ball is rolling and it's rolling in the right direction. Maybe not as fast as we'd like, but it is moving. All we can do is play the games that interest us and make our thoughts known.06/30/2015 - 11:55pm
Matthew Wilsonits unfortunate that the dataset is so tiny for female leads, and is a mixed bag, so money people get the wrong idea.06/30/2015 - 11:54pm
Andrew Eisen"Duke Nukem Forever sold poorly. See? Games staring white guys don't sell!" Pretty silly thing to say.06/30/2015 - 11:50pm
Andrew EisenOr, at the very least, that gamers aren't turned off by female leads.06/30/2015 - 11:49pm
Matthew Wilsonyou would think games like metriod, portal and tomb raider would show that it work, but hopefuly those knew ones will.06/30/2015 - 11:47pm
Andrew EisenBut, luckily strides are being made and the money peoples are slowly learning that diversity -> larger targeted audience -> more potential dollars.06/30/2015 - 11:43pm
Andrew EisenSure does. That's why there should be more than just one or two attempts. (7 games at E3 with female leads and 35 with a gender option. I think it's safe to say that not all of these will fail!)06/30/2015 - 11:42pm
Matthew Wilsonthat puts alot of presure on the early stuff to do well. lets hope games like recode and harizon are good, and sell well.06/30/2015 - 11:38pm
Andrew EisenLuckily, money people also like to follow trends. So, it's a "simple" matter of making proper representation a trend. And wouldn't you know it, we're seeing the beginnings of exactly that!06/30/2015 - 11:34pm
Andrew EisenBut yeah, money people are risk averse. That's why we see so many sequels, reboots, and adaptations. To a lot of money people, "there's no evidence this works because it's rarely ever been tried" is the same as "this doesn't work."06/30/2015 - 11:33pm
Andrew EisenThat's why I think it's worth convincing the money peoples that proper representation (in any of its forms) isn't a financial risk, it's the path to expanding your audience and making even MORE money!06/30/2015 - 11:32pm
