    Indeed, but what is supposed to be super cool was left up to my imagination, not Mattell

    My mistake ... Ken was on the ticket with John Kerry, who served in Viet Nam.

    At least one thing Barbie has done over the years is that it produced a series of career dolls depicting young women in fields such as astronauts, paleontologists, doctors, presidential candidates which is much improved from her beginnings in the 50's where she started out as a beauty contestant.

    When did Ken make a comeback? Last I heard he and Barbie split in 2004 after 43 years of unwedded bliss. Barbie kept the Dream House, the pink Volkswagen, the Jeep and the Cadillac. It was reported she was tired of being the one to bring home the bacon with her many careers while Ken hung out on the beach.

    Wouldn't it be hilarious if someone from Mattel is reading our comments, and decides to make Ken more manly? Grown women will be buying them, and not for their grandkids either! :

    When are they going to make "not-exactly-ripped" Ken?

    It's in the works. Mattel is reading our comments, and measuring Alan Grayson as we type here. The "Trent Lott" model is trash.

    We might see a reformed Barbie, so a church or something will probably be the next item for sale. It could be a sales winner, because the Bible belt people will think "it's about time," while others will shake their head and remember the good old days when life was fun and buy it in remembrance!
