The Top Ten Conservative Idiots, No. 121 – Democratic Underground

The Top Ten Conservative Idiots, No. 121 – Democratic Underground: “While KB Toys is selling heroic action figures of the chickenhawk-in-chief, Ebay is disallowing sales of some products critical of the Bush Administration. Canadian artist John Steins tried to use the popular auction site to sell his artwork, a parody of the ‘most wanted’ deck of cards from the Iraq War. The hand printed lino-cut prints, titled ‘Axis of Weasels’ featured portraits of prominent Bush Administration figures, including Dubya (ace of spades), Donald Rumsfeld (queen of spades), Ari Fleischer (jack of spades), on down to Dick Cheney (two of spades). After receiving a number of complaints from ‘pro-Bush Americans,’ Ebay ordered the products removed from the site. According to Steins’ website, thebushadministration.com, Ebay eventually backed down. But this should have never happened in the first place. If Stein had been selling Klan paraphernalia or penis enlargement pills he’d be fine, but since he was critical of the Boy King, he got the boot.”

It’s ok to sell the Barbie Doll Bush, but no Poker Cards for real men to play with? What’s up with that?
