These finger puppets from Moss are perfect for liberals frustrated with the current political climate. You can choose from three different sets: "Terrorism" puppets (Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong Il, Ahmadinejad and George W.), "Gay Marriage" puppets (two brides, two grooms and a priest) and the newly-released "Political Candidate" puppets (Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani and a dunce-cap-wearing George W.). Just prepare yourself for heated puppet debates post gift unwrapping.
