This is what happens when you make a comment around me. This is the thread over at the Big Orange that started it all. Eventually, Jeff Y declared that
Herb Herman Koch Cain is:
The black Caribou Barbie
Of course, that reminded me of this old poster:
And that got me thinking that
Herb Hermie deserved his own action figure. Maybe he and Princess Sarah Palin will be hosting a show togther over at Faux News one day, and we don’t want Caribou Barbie’s doll to be lonely.

John McCain & Lindsey Graham: The Mean Girls of the U.S. Senate
I have a theory about human social evolution: life doesn’t progress much after high school. This week, I can thank John McCain and Lindsey Graham for providing empirical data that supports this hypothesis.

Hey, kids, Chanukah starts tonight, and the War on Christmas is just around the corner, so those of you who still have jobs, can afford to buy some presents, and have a few Rethuglican kids on your gift list, you might want to start thinking about what kind of toys you might want to purchase. Well, you know that I’m always here to help! This afternoon, I visited a store with lots of different toys to choose from…
Okay, kids, I just got home, and I didn’t have anything planned. I dipped into the old American Street files, and I thought we might look at a few of the possible candidates for President in 2012. (And, no, I won’t include Princess Sarah Palin!)

To the tune of My Favorite Things (music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II):
Birthers and Deathers, and all kinds of crazy,
A Twitterer quits, ’cause she’s just too damned lazy,
Rescuing banks ’cause they’re too big to fail,
Tales about the Appalachian trail.

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…
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!
