Happy Birthday, Barbie! Part 3: The Ladies of the Senate

Well, kids, this was going to be a 2-part series, but now it seems that it will be in 4 parts. Today, I thought we would take a look at the Rethuglican women in the Senate. They were all nice enough to allow us a peek into their office. We begin with Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Happy Birthday Barbie, Part 2: First Lady Edition

Continuing with our celebration of Barbie’s 50th birthday. Yesterday, we looked at someone who wants to make a big splash in Washington, D.C., so today I thought we would look at some Barbies who really did make a splash, whether good or muddy. I thought we would do this chronologically. Therefore, we begin with the Lady MacBeth wife of George H. W. Bush and Mrs. Iselin mother of the bad seed Chimpy George W. Bush. We all remember how gracious she was when Hurricane Katrina hit.

Happy Birthday, Barbie!

Hey kids, didja know that the Barbie doll just celebrated her 50th birthday? From ABC News:

Barbie may be turning 50 this year, but middle-aged, she is not. Of course, she’s kept busy during the years, with 108 careers & and counting. She’s been an Olympic athlete, a Marine Corps sergeant, a dentist, an aerobics instructor, an astronaut and a rock star. This week, Barbie will have her first show during New York Fashion Week and her 50th birthday will be officially celebrated March 9, 2009.

I thought we would add to the celebration with our very own array of Barbie dolls. We’ve seen some previously here at the Raisin. Remember Botox Barbie (scroll down to see all of her accessories and for Lying Racist Barbie!)? Why even Senator David Vitter couldn’t escape China Barbie’s charms! How about Caribou Barbie and all of her Barbie brood (scroll down past Cheerleader Elisabeth Hasselbeck Barbie)? Why, we even took a look in the window of the Caribou Barbie Boutique (hate for you kids to work so hard, but scroll down just one more time)!

And speaking of Caribou Barbie, you might be interested to hear that they have repackaged her to see if she will sell better! Take a look…

Don’t Ask, Don’t Mattel

From ABC News:

ABC News’ Rick Klein Reports: The McCain-Palin campaign’s efforts to reach women is about to get a celebrity boost: Elisabeth Hasselbeck is set to join Gov. Sarah Palin on the campaign trail.

“The View” co-host said Thursday the McCain campaign contacted her a day earlier, to convey an invitation from Palin to introduce her at rallies Sunday in Florida.

I always thought that Elisabeth was Cindy Lou’s bestest buddy, but I guess she’s been handed down to Caribou Barbie. I guess Reality Show Barbie is now the official celebrity Cheerleader Sneerleader Barbie!
