Last Minute Halloween Costumes for the Politically Minded Youth
Just in case you're into that whole Halloween thing, Jeannette sent me a link to The Stranger, who bring us some scary costumes that are economical too. From a voting machine, to a detained protester, you can't go wrong with these costumes. I think my favorite has to be Jenna Bush, because not only do you have a great costume, but you're a friend of the environement too!
Jenna Bush's Liver
Dive inside President Bush's rowdiest daughter with this ingenious re-creation of Jenna Bush's liver. Use old newspapers to stuff a Hefty bag to create the liver, then affix two or three paper-stuffed white bin liners for "diseased" spots. Rifle through the help's recycling bin for an empty Bud can and bottoms up!
Total cost: Under $5.
Total time: Under 30 minutes.
Alas, if the Nancy costume would have come with some out of style glasses, it would have been my choice for best of the bunch.

I so want to be the detained protestor.

Awww... The Littlest Prisoner at Abu Ghraib
I would give that kid TWO pieces of candy! And then, I'd pile his naked dad on top of the other neighborhood dads. *so cute at that age* (the dads, not the kids).

corie, you were mighty close to being that detained person.
matt, doesn't it look like they are all having a blast?

Yep. Even the "Nancy" kid (even tho she should be mourning)! Two pieces for her, too!
Wouldn't it be ironic if she grew up to be a staunch republican? And that first kid grew up to be a Diebold voting machine? :)
