This election year is scary enough for politicians in Washington. But at least Halloween allows DC types to express their fears and get a laugh.
One inside-the-beltway type offers some suggestions: how about a witch costume with pearls as a nod to GOP candidate for US Senator Christine O'Donnell? (the candidate, by the way, says she's considering going as Dorothy, who killed the witch) Or perhaps you could come as a demon sheep as a nod to the creative ads by California's GOP Senate candidate Carly Fiorina.
I suppose a giant marijuana leaf would be appropriate for Prop 19, which would legalize cannabis.
I'm sure you can come up with more creative suggestions for politically inspired costumes this election Halloween. Post your best ideas!
