Happy Birthday, Barbie: 4th and Final(?) Edition

Well, kids, in parts 1, 2, and 3, we’ve covered wannabes and motherhood, a few first ladies, and Rethuglican women in the Senate. Since we’ve paid homage to those in the Senate, I would be remiss to ignore the Ladies of the House. Let’s start with my fave, Michele Bachmann. From The Minnesota Independent:

Yes, kids, a Palin Truth Squad. The woman who is supposedly ready to be President needs bridesmaids an entire squad to watch over her and make sure nobody insults Captain Underpants’s little Princess Sarah. Don’t tell anyone, but I got a photo of one of the squad’s secret meetings!
