Forget Etch-a-Sketch: Vintage `60s Toys For Newt, Obama & Rick

Mitt Romney, ready to change
A spokesman for Mitt Romney stepped in it this week when he cited the 1960s toy Etch-a-Sketch when discussing how easy it would be for his candidate to pivot, issues-wise, from appealing to the rightwingers of the GOP primary to the more centrist voters in the general election.

It was a bad metaphor for his side, since it reinforced the growing view that Romney doesn't have any core beliefs that he's not willing to change if the political situation calls for it.

But should Mitt Romney be the only 2012 candidate symbolized by a 1960s toy? We think not.

Newt Gingrich: Moon McDare

The only candidate this year to have the balls to advocate for a moon colony during his administration, Newt Gingrich is Moon McDare personified. The spacesuit allows you to visit any ICU if you have to inform your latest wife you're trading her in for a new model.

No matter how hard you hit him, he's going to bounce back and keep up the fight!! And eventually you will realize it gets pretty damn boring.

You have been given very nice pictures of vintage `60s toys, I have seen and really liked. In them the Ron Paul: Bozo Bop Bag is much batter than other toy to play from my point of view.

It’s: “Tamagotchi meets Pokemon” but with real fusion between the two and for smart-phones. People were crazy about Tamagotchis. It gave the user a sense of pride. You created and developed something and then measured your success by seeing how it fared against the elements. It gave the user a unique feeling of power. My creation survived.Fund to create this awasome game inhttp://www.kickstarter.com/pro...
