If GOP Candidates Were Toys

In trying to play down how Mitt Romney will be damaged in a General Election from all the gaffes and attacks he’s suffered in the GOP primary so far, his aide referred to him in an interview as an Etch-A-Sketch, explaining he’ll be able to shake off everything and have a fresh start. Uh huh.

It started me thinking about what toys would best represent each of the GOP candidates so here’s a little list of toy candidates for the toy candidates:

IF MITT ROMNEY WAS A TOY HE COULD BE:

 

 

IF RICK SANTORUM WAS A TOY HE COULD BE:

IF NEWT GINGRICH WAS A TOY HE COULD BE:

 

IF RON PAUL WAS A TOY HE COULD BE:

Okay, your turn!

Now if they were a sex toy they would all be the same for obvious reasons. From the movie ‘Top Secret’.

The Etch-a-Sketch metaphor to describe Romney is not going to end until after the election. I think it just nails Romney for what he truly is. Along with being the Monopoly man it describes the whole reason Romney should not be president.

I think finding games to describe the other candidates is much more difficult and you did a great job for what you had to work with.

KT the 3 dimensional chess board to describe Obama on the other hand was pure genius.

Probably the best way to describe Gingrich is with a demented Chucky doll like I think KT posted too.

Santorum is tough because there are not many Christianist games but Dante’s Inferno a video game describes his exploits well.

Paul is just such a nut so I think the old game a barrel full of monkeys describes him and his followers.

Years ago my brother and his friends made up a mock “commercial” that has come back to mind. It’s the perfect description of unleashing the GOPTEA party…

“Get Little Destructo! First thing he does outta the box is eat the box he came in! Be the first kid to be the last kid on your block! Get Little Destructo today!”

AdLib – wouldn’t that be “if Destructo was a RESPONSIBLE Republican robot…” and that, clearly, is an oxymoron.

It could be, KT! I like the “Buy the numbers” on there, too. That is so fitting for Romney’s campaign, isn’t it!

I know, KT, and don’t you want to play some of them? Some of them sound really fun. My family is a big game playing one. I have a closet full of them.

Oh yeah, it would be a blast. The last “game,” that I played was Trivial Pursuit. I love that game. I’m full of useless knowledge!

Maybe someone can bring down “The Cone Of Silence,” on all three of the GOPers.

How much you want to bet that Obama really does have a shoe phone? 😉

You know, that truly does sum up someone who votes against their own best interests! Perfect!
