Cabinet Action Figures: Collect 'Em All!

When was the last time I said something nice about George W. Bush? Let's see, was it... never? That long ago, hmm?

Well, mark down June 25, 2007 on your calendar, then.

Say what you will about the Commander guy, but when he takes a photo, he looks like a living, breathing human being, not something made out of molded plastic to be posed awkwardly on a shelf.

The same cannot be said of the people who were also in this picture taken last month. From left to right we have Energy Deputy Secretary Clay Sell, Transportation Secretary Mary Peters, YouKnowWho, EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson and Agricultural Secretary Mike Johanns.

Of course, it's easy to find the Mary Peters and Mike Johanns action figures, since they actually are cabinet members. Getting the deputy secretaries and sub cabinet department chiefs is a more challenging task, and only undertaken by true collectors.

Hey! New flags! Denmark! Now I just need Norway to collect my all Scandinavia bonus!


And Kuwait! From somebody official, no less! Things are really looking up!

I see your point, but saying that he doesn't look like plastic is not really, well nice.

It is nicer than usual though. And certainly nicer than anything that I have ever said.

Maybe I'm just jealous?!

Anyway, off to eBay to look for those action figures!
