Trick or Treat!

Amy Gardner

Happy Halloween, politicos! And welcome to our first (and only?) All Hallows/Election Eve costume contest!

How are you dressing up for Halloween this year? Democrat R. Creigh Deeds drew a few yucks (and groans) by promising earlier today to come as himself -- unlike Republican Bob McDonnell, who is "masquerading" as a moderate.

Team McDonnell was prepared for some fright-night fun too, with this retort from spokesman Tucker Martin: "Halloween is spooky, but Creigh Deeds's plan to raise taxes is flat-out scary."

Actually, and bear with us here, Martin had more. McDonnell is dressing up as himself for Halloween, Martin said, but if he WERE going to go in costume, he'd dress up like the GEICO money stack with eyes -- "to represent how much money he will save Virginians by stopping Creigh Deeds from raising our taxes."

oh my....pathetic!

I did like the "masquerading" thing though...cute.

Unfortunately for a lot of "not following the election too closely" suburban voters, they're going to be experiencing some serious buyers' remorse in about a year! Maybe next Halloween they'll REALLY be scared at how out-of-touch and unable to solve any real long-term problems facing Virginia Governor McDonnell will be!

They'll people like zombies walking the street chanting that 2011 can't come soon enough!

McDonnell should go in a moderate jobs candidate costume, to cover up his arch social conservatism - oh, right, he already is!
