Meet the Candidates: Cabbage Patch Kids edition


One-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch Kids of John McCain, Sarah Palin, Barack Obama and Joe Biden are being auctioned off on eBay, with all the money going to Toys for Tots.

After a day’s worth of bidding, here’s the current prices:
Sarah Palin – $2,425.00
John McCain – $1,025.00
Barack Obama – $801.00
Joe Biden – $600.00

What’s really important, though, is what these things look like. Right? Pics, arranged from most horrible to most awesome, are after the break …

Joe Biden: There’s a reason it’s only fetching $600 — it doesn’t look like Joe Biden. It needs a bigger mouth.


Barack Obama: Not as bad as SNL’s Obama, but not great either. Who does the Cabbage Patch Obama look like? Anyone?


Sarah Palin: It looks more like Miss Piggy than Sarah Palin, but I still chuckled. And $2,400 — daaaaaaaamn, Sarah!


John McCain: It’s the best, because that’s really how he stands. They nailed the arms. And it even looks kinda pissed off.

Imagine yourself as a Cabbage Patch Kid! Scary? I think these dolls are fun — and look at all that money they’re bringing in for charity. I’ve created a page with more information at if you’d care to take a peek. You can vote for your favorite…doll, not candidate!
