    Maybe, you should of given the dolls to a toy drive.

    Yo Vista Bill with that great Walter Brennan avatar! Welcome back! I admire your charitable attitude toward even Sarah Palin.

    Well, LWP, maybe there’s still hope Sam will change her mind and do something more humanitarian with the dolls. All except for the Sarah Palin doll.
     
    Note that she still sports her adult-Doonesbury eyes while her mom still carries the ante-adult ones. Even at 12, she seems to have more brains than Mom ‘n’ Pop combined, not to mention her inter-personal skills. Witness how she handles the whacked-out Ray and wigged-out Zonk such that even the ever-watchful, over-protective BD trusts her with them and them with her (despite her obvious jailbait looks). I mean, the kid’s already potentially Elizabeth Warren material!
     
    However, the Toy Story movies must give us pause! Suppose she does donate the dolls. Imagine that SP doll un-loosed in a young childrens’ orphanage! I mean, what havoc would it wreak?
     
    All I can say, fuzzy bears, is — stay tooned.

    Not meaning to say BD’s a wuss-over. He has military training and combat experience. Anybody who’d touch one strand of that kid’s blond hair in lust would end up as dog food. It’s just that he’s a rather keen judge of character.

    Panel 3: Sam’s silhouette when lying on her side.

    Panel 4: Is that Alice?

    @palos

    I think the speaker in Panel 4 is the Sarah Palin doll aka Caribou Barbie.

    “Is that Alice?”
     
    Nah. Alice lives up in the palace. (Ever seen the Disney version of “Alice in Wonderland?”)

    Oops! (Apologies to Rick Perry.) I got it wrong. In Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland” it’s the Queen of Hearts who “lives up in the palice.” To wit, sings the March Hare lustily:
     
    We must chat about a very important matter.
    I’m off to see the Queen of Hearts
    who lives up in the palace,
    and the very moment I’m through with her
    I’ve got a date with Alice.
    I can’t be late for Alice
    or the Queen of Hearts who lives up in the palace.
    I’m late.

    I mean, imagine the SP doll inciting preschoolers in a “mom ‘n’ pop” orphanage. A mom ‘n’ pop who’re running the place on a shoestring. On charity wages. A mom ‘n’ pop who — gasp! actually voted FOR Obama! Imagine her inciting them to a rebellion against Mom ‘n’ Pop. their “dirty commie oppressors”!
     
    Inciting them to a Second ’Merican Revolution! She could have them burning the place to the ground.

    No, Sam. Leave the SP doll to her well-deserved fate, the trash heap of history. Rescue only the others.

    Is GT commenting on S.P.s current stature in the last frame?

    Yup; SP is so 2008…

    Then after the poverty-striken orphanage was burned to the ground, SP doll could convince the children to offer their little bodies for work (a la Newt Gingrich) to Suffer Little Children Charter School to clean toilets at 15¢ per hour like I had to do. Only I was 15 and had a shot, which I took, working my way through boarding hgh school in a much-higher-paying wood mill.
     
    Imagine the real Sarah Palin in the Presidency repealing all child labor laws! Fear not, fuzzy bears, the Teapartiers won’t rest well till they have us back to the pre-Enlightenment dark ages. And make no mistake, the John Glover Roberts, Jr., Supreme Court will back her to the hilt. And I do mean the knife hilt that she uses to—. You know exactly what I mean.
     
    Thank the good Lord we’ve got Trudeau to point out some of these Teapartier pitfalls before they happen.
     
    So if you happen to live in Massachusetts, SUPPORT ELIZABETH WARREN’S RUN FOR TEDDY KENNEDY’S OLD SEAT now soiled by the likes of Scott Brown.
