Just what you want to see--you walk into the bedroom to check on your slumbering 3-year-old and find her all snuggled up with none other than ... Joe Biden!

I'm having a hard time getting that visual out of my head after learning that the company that makes Cabbage Patch Kids will be auctioning off four one-of-a-kind dolls crafted in the likeness of Biden, John McCain, Sarah Palin, and Barack Obama. Actually, the thought of any of them becoming my daughter's bedtime buddy, or even the occassional guest at one of her tea parties, gives me the creeping willies--and it has nothing to do with politics (well, maybe a little :) ).

The candidates are eerily accurate in their puffed up personas, with Obama sporting black suit and blue tie and Sarah Palin in her rimless glasses, red suit,and librarian hairdo.

I'm sorry, governor and senators, but we're sticking to Elmo and tattered bears at my house. They're way cuter!

Seriously, though, it's a great cause. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation. If you're interested in throwing in a bid this Thursday, or just want to follow the action, check out the Cabbage Patch Kids ebay auction site.


If you had the money, which doll would you bid on?
