ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Depends on whether McCain wears the radio transmitter to Rove that bushie wore, in true puppetry style.
McCain has a pretty wide stance there. just sayin’…
So true McChud. But he does have the middle finger; I guess taking the index finger is just government expansion.
where can I watch the Michelle/Cindy debate? or do i need the fingerpuppets for that…
Stck yr thmb n cnt!
Many readers don’t know the reference for that comment and found it offensive.
I guess finger puppets were the next step, since the candidates themselves have produced their own sock puppets.
I wonder if the debates are going to be tag team? Obama answers first half of a question, TAG, Michelle does a stone cold stunner on McCain.
With Finger puppets all things are possible.
Are people under the impression that Michelle Obama is running for vice president? WTF? It’s not just these finger puppets, but I’ve seen several things online – including news articles from mainstream sources – that compare/contrast these four people instead of the four that are actually running.
@7 3Â½ including Palin.
Something about that picture just makes my skin crawl for some reason.
I am temporarily disturbed.
Well, it’s the first couples — that’s Cindy McCain, not Sarah Palin, to John McCain’s right. Or “on his left hand.”
There’s a Miss Hillary one too, and T-shirts:
As I just reminded folks at my weblog f/k/a, in a pinch, we can also make a clenched-fist puppet like SeÃ±or Wences used to do on the Ed Sullivan Show. The most famous Wences fist puppet was named Johnny.
meh. they needs more polygons…
need new puppets. When McCain finishes dying of cancer, Palin will be eliminated as a ideal “martyr”. Who is third in line?
I think Cindy actually looks more lifelike this way.
If only these were made of soft, washable silicone…
Vote on the best, or write in your own candidate:
1. If your fingers are debating one another, you might have more serious problems than this country right now (which is saying something.)
2. I didn’t know McCain was running for Fonzie.
3. Where are the Palin – Biden puppets? (Oh yeah, they’re the real ones.)
4. Why should they have all the fun giving us the finger?
hmm,soft washable silicone… definite business opportunity there. Get a decent sculptor to do the primary molds (art school near freeby), web market the product… get a little free advertising by scandalizing with free samples to the right people… oh, and get around the high cost of medical grade silicone by buying batches of non-certified med-grade silicone. Yeah, let me know when the IPO hits.
I protest. McCain has two digits while Obama only has one. I know Big John’s a fatcat, but do they have to rub it in?
McCain is thicker, but Obama has a really big head.

Your blog link goes on your profile page. Thanks.
does that count as link whoring?
I’ll show you politics in America. Here it is, right here. “I think the puppet on the right shares my beliefs.” “I think the puppet on the left is more to my liking.” “Hey, wait a minute, there’s one guy holding out both puppets!” “Shut up! Go back to bed, America. Your government is in control. Here’s Love Connection. Watch this and get fat and stupid. By the way, keep drinking beer, you fucking morons.”
– Bill Hicks
Yeah, they’re Punch and Judy, and Judy’s been getting whacked on pretty non-stop for the past 8 years.
Nasty Antinous! giggle!
I wonder why first lady outfits all look kinda mother of the bride-like. Much as Michelle has a very Jacky O look. They seem like bridal party looks to me.
Your fake debates will be just as fake as real debates!
