Where’s the little Hitler doll?

I’ve promised no politics over on my baby blog so I’ll have to share this over here. I saw this today at ABC Home in NYC in the children’s section:

In the kid section at ABC Home

Che and Trotsky, how many people did they kill between them?

…and Gandhi is unpleasantly surprised by this company

Surely only Vaclav Havel and Victor Yushchenko are the only revolutionaries without blood on their hands? That must be why they get ‘bloody revolution’ label. Ghandi gave a good try, but many died after self-rule happened, so no cigar.

I take it back. He is not “unpleasantly surprised” – look at his eyebrows.
He is SHOCKED! SHOCKED, I tell you.

Hitler is not there because the progressive left see’s him as “conservative”… so because Trotsky and Guevara are leftists, they must be okay.

By the way. I would love to post the wedding photo of the footprints in the sand. What is the possibility of getting that to post as a picture for my “art” tag?

Technically Hitler wasn’t a revolutionary.

That’s kind of an odd group of people to pick out as “the great revolutionaries”. Guevara but not Mao or Washington or Boukman?

They should have called it Great Revolutionaries: Dorm Room Marxist Edition.

I was thinking that myself, Eric. I mean, ol’ Che was good at killin’…not so much at revolution. That’s sort of why Castro sent him to South America

“They should have called it Great Revolutionaries: Dorm Room Marxist Edition.”

Hahaha. That’s awesome.

The company that produces these dolls also produces a line of “Great thinkers” including Albert Einstien, E.A Poe, Frida Kohalo and Barak Obama.

The Axis of Evil III set has finger puppets of Rumsfeld, Bush, Cheney, and Rice.
