Putting lipstick on a doll

In case you haven't heard: You can now get a posable action-figure doll of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

A company called herobuilders.com has released the $30 doll, complete with glasses and up-do, in three models. In one version, she's dressed in normal clothes. But in the other two, it appears the dollmakers have stuck her head on other dolls' bodies. One's dressed just like Angelina Jolie in "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," complete with trenchcoat and a pistol in a strap-on thigh holster. The other's done up like a sexy schoolgirl a la Britney Spears.

No word on when we can expect a doll of a dead caribou to pose with her.

For the record, the company also makes dolls of presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama (but not Sen. Joe Biden). They also have one of former candidate John Edwards wearing a T-shirt that says "Rogue."
