George Bush: Elite Force Aviator action figure! SICK

The guy goes AWOL for an entire year, spends gobs of our cash to pull that stunt on the aircraft carrier, and he gets an action figure for his efforts. Somebody stick pencils in my eyes NOW.
"This fully poseable figure features a realistic head sculpt, fully detailed cloth flight suit, helmet with oxygen mask, survival vest, g-pants, parachute harness and much more. The realism and exacting attention to detail demanded by today's 12-inch action figure enthusiast are met and exceeded with this action figure."

Tell these guys what you think of their affront to our sense of decency.

everyone post a "review" of the product. In addition, how about a boycott of K&B toys? Its not like the company is good for anything anyway.

Some enterprising folks out there want to produce a drunken AWOL coke-head Bush action figure? It'd be popular, plus he'd probably try and have it banned, which would create more opportunities to humiliate the terrorist asshole-in-chief.

After having taken the time to examine this toy closely, there's no way I'll let my son play with it. My reason is simple: the toy represents a fascist dictator who sells the honor of his country for the benefit of plutocrats and corporations. It'd be like letting my son play with a Hitler doll.

quick thinking entrepreneur

It's okay. Someone can make and market an accessories kit. It will have a flask that fits in his inner left breast pocket (for a quick drink on the sly every now and then), a rolled up $100 bill with coke dust on it (not real cocaine- this is a toy[!]), and several notes from the doctor (presigned and undated) excusing him from duty.
