Halloween is 23 days away. Do you know how you're gonna get your boo on?
I do. For in these desperate times, there's nothing scarier than going as the honorable governor from Alaska, the lipstick-wearing, eye-winking, Joe six-pack hockey mom of all time.
The website Costume Kingdom claims it has a limited edition of Palin masks, which you can pre-order now for $29.95 plus delivery. (Ok, I did feel major guilt for spending that kind of cash on a mask of That One. But if McCain-Palin wins, it will be good for 4 years. And frankly, even if they don't win, she doesn't seem to be going anywhere. So I consider it a sound investment for Halloweens to come.)
The mask isn't a dead-ringer for the Guv., more of a caricature of her, with that hot-for-teacher updo and her signature rimless glasses. Other politico masks on the site include McCain, Obama, Hillary and Bill (who looks pretty frightening with his tongue hanging out -- ewwww).
Perhaps the one that's truly the scariest (both literally and in terms of how realistic looking it is) is the Dick Cheney mask. Party tip: Dress in camo, carry a fake shotgun and go with a friend who has a faux gunshot wound and you'll be the hit of any Halloween gathering.
