Bobblehead Assassins

Who thought this was a good idea?
Bobblehead dolls of the man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln have been pulled from sale at the Gettysburg National Military Park visitors' center bookstore.

The dolls of John Wilkes Booth with a handgun were removed from shelves on Saturday, a day after a reporter for Hanover's The Evening Sun newspaper asked about them, officials said.

"On rare occasions, there's an item that might cause concern, and obviously the bobbleheads appeared to be doing that," Gettysburg Foundation spokeswoman Dru Anne Neil said Tuesday.
Can you imagine a bobblehead Lee Harvey Oswald complete with Carcano rifle? Or a bobblehead Teddy Kennedy complete with 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88?  Of course not.
