Centralia company puts politicians faces on shooting targets

If you're frustrated with Sarah Palin, Nancy Pelosi or politics in general, a Centralia company is offering an outlet in the form of target practice.

The creators of Bastard Blasters told 97.3 KIRO FM's Dori Monson Show that the targets are just meant to be fun.

"We have the Obama blaster, the Pelosi blaster, the Palin blaster," said co-creator Dan Klug. "They're novelty items."

Klug told Monson they have no party bias.

"We don't care if it's a Republican, Democrat, Tea Party. All politicians, they make mistakes, and people like to poke fun at them," said Klug. "We're just giving people an outlet to have a little fun with it."

Monson told the creators he personally finds the idea of politicians' faces on targets a little "unsettling."

"I like using my words to criticize politicians," said Monson. "I'm not sure I want people blasting them on clay pigeons."

Dan Rich, Klug's co-founder, said it's just for fun.

"We're having a good time with it," said Rich. "It's a new business venture for us."

"Anybody that wants to put some hate into it or anything like that for these people that are on there, that's them," said Klug. "It's not us."
