We can vote, what else do these broads want?

Barbie for President! Barbie for President!

Yes, in case you haven’t heard, the good people at Mattel now are having Barbie “My boobs are huge and my hair seriously needs a cut” Doll run for president.

Shall we discuss her platorm?

She has pledged a campaign that will concentrate on creating world peace, helping the homeless and poor, and taking care of animals. Her platform was chosen by girls across America through the Barbie.com Web.

Children are so stupid. Let’s all have world peace! Help the poor! Take care of animals! No offense, but we’re too busy ignoring the situation in Sudan to go and take care of the puppies and kitties at the SPCA. We’ve got Bob Barker for that. We’re too busy sticking our noses everywhere yet nowhere at the same time for the poor. Just stick them on a cruise ship already.

So why is Barbie running for president?

Marie C. Wilson, president and founder of the national, nonpartisan The White House Project, said Barbie’s campaign shows girls that they can aspire to the highest levels of leadership, including the presidency.

“It allows girls to think about turning Barbie’s dream house into the White House,” Wilson said in a statement. “Since Barbie is such a large part of girls’ lives, we believe it’s important to encourage them to become tomorrow’s leaders, and Barbie for President sends that message.”

The White House Project, devoted to advancing women’s leadership, recently launched its Go Vote. Go Run. Go Lead. Go Girl. campaign.

Girls can learn the basics of campaigning and the electoral process, and receive information about female political role models and possible leadership activities on the Barbie Web site.

What? Excuse me? We’re teaching girls that they can aspire to the highest levels?

Wait. Why do you have to teach them to do that? Do you ever hear people telling little boys that “you can be everything you want to be! You can be a doctor or a lawyer or a president!”

No. You don’t. Why? Because it is expected of them to do so. But for some reason, it is NOT expected of little girls to aspire to do great things on their own. No, we need a stupid doll with big tits and blonde hair to tell them.

I will never expect for someone to tell my daughter that “she can be all she can be” because she will know that. She is a woman. Same as a man, but with the ability to give birth amongst other things.

Just because she has a vagina doesn’t mean she is less capable of doing great things.

    I saw that and thought “hmmmmm….”

    She really has taken on a lot since her divorce from Ken! A single woman President!

    Maybe she and Midge will get together and Midge will be her first lady.

    heheeheeee… what will they think of next!

    Yeah. Mattel is a tad behind the times, or trying a bit too hard, because I was under the impression that parents were raising their daughters to be all they can be without the aid of a toy.

    That said, you know you’ll be playing Barbies with your daughter someday. I will be, but before I do I’ll have a little cocktail and go into lala land remembering how I loved my Barbies too.

    God - I had like 3 Barbies, and they were all the same…I’m old enough to where they didn’t have different Barbies. It was Malibu Barbie and Ken with the plastic hair.

    We just cut Malibu Barbie’s hair to make each one different.

    I’ll shut up now.
