You know what would make little girls feel more confident about themselves and their place in the world? Running a plastic doll with pneumatic breasts for president. Because having Barbie run for president really gives young women something to aspire to -- namely, lower back pain. The pliant politico is running a campaign based on "creating world peace, helping the homeless and poor, and taking care of animals." (Is that gender stereotyping or did she just pick up Kucinich's old platform?) According to AP, "The Mattel doll has thrown her hat into the ring as the candidate of the Party of Girls!" "Party of Girls!" Didn't I see that on Cinemax?
