Something about this doll - the dazed look or maybe the excessive blush - reminded me of Sarah Palin's extreme makeover at the hands of her highly-paid Hollywood makeup artist. The New York Daily News says Palin's sheer ineptitude shines through the window-dressing. You can come along on an interactive shopping expedition. Notice her would-be nemesis Vladimir Putin peeking in the window? Hmmm, do we really need a shotgun to go shopping? And what about that flute!!??
