I guess this is what you call "political purple prose".
Mark Morford, a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle's website, wrote yesterday: "It's true. It's real. The Bush action figure is a genuine serious item and not, as you would fully expect, a joke, not a parody ...

"There he is, all faux manly and squinty and artificially buffed up, his gull-wing ears toned down and the thin-lipped brow-furrowed monkey confusion so common to his scrunched little face apparently erased by expert doll craftsmen and/or a drunken 50-cents-an-hour sweatshop employee somewhere in China."

Gosh, the one on the right is almost life-like . . .
