I guess Sarah Palin made of LEGO was to be expected, considering we have seen a Sarah Palin action figure, as well as other celebrities, including Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt made of LEGO.

The LEGO Sarah Palin, created by ochre jelly, is a pretty decent replica of her infamous winking shot.

LEGO has been used as a creative building toy for decades, although it has evolved from a mini architectural building tool to a medium to create pixel-style statues.

The Sarah Palin LEGO figurine reveals so much about our world tonight; it is the ultimate piece to visually embody US pop culture in the last few months. Not only does it combine one of the most controversial US political figures and an infamous toy, but it also illustrates the ease at which small ideas, such as a Sarah Palin LEGO doll, can become widespread sensations through the internet.
