Just the thing for Chertoff's grandchildren

If it is true that the products of American toymakers reflect our nation’s political realities, then Playmobil’s Airport Security Check Point has reached a new low:

It is out of stock on

This is no joke; I went to Playmobil’s website and found the item. It has been around since 2005.

Fear not, however. The long string of snarky customer “reviews” of this weird product suggests that American consumers still can display a wicked sense of humor.

Will it be long before Playmobil brings out a little plastic Humvee full of little plastic soldier figures that disintegrates when it rolls over a little plastic bomb? Or a little plastic female Iraqi figure with a little plastic bomb harness under her little plastic cloak?

Thanks to for the heads-up.
