Aren’t bobbleheads meant to be a compliment? Back in the day when you got a bobblehead, it was a big deal. Sports teams would have a bobblehead night for some players. But then, over time, it seemed that everyone was getting bobbleheads, and I mean everyone. I know a radio personality who got a freaking bobblehead. Seriously? Who wants a bobblehead of a person on the radio? (By the way, the radio personality that got that personal bobblehead, could never get rid of all of them).

Anyway, back to my point. It seems that when somebody gets a bobblehead now it’s not that big of a deal. I guess it’s fine for the most part, but when bobbleheads are political figures or other important people, it just seems weird.

What are you gonna do with a Governor's or a President's bobblehead? Waste money so you can sit there and just flick his head so that they answer a question the way you want them to?

Q: Should I run for political office again?

A: (flick up and down or left and right)

Q: Should I cover up this situation up before it starts a scandal?

A: (flick up and down or left and right)

Yeah, it sounds like hours of fun. You know they say Hollywood should stay out of politics? Well, politics should stay out of bobbleheads.

Here's the exception -- when it's for charity. The Walz bobbleheads are from the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame (yes, that's a thing). Sales of those bobbleheads go to charity.

National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled the first bobblehead of Minnesota Governor Tim Walz. We will be donating $5 from every Governor Walz Bobblehead sold to the Protect The Heroes fund in support of the 100 Million Mask Challenge,
