Earlier this week, we asked for suggestions for current events-related Halloween costumes that wouldn't make your day editor want to slap you. (i.e. NO SARAH PALIN) Good thing we never revisited this topic until the end of the week, because the world's best costume didn't present itself until yesterday, when Ashley "Ol' B-Face" Todd carved a backwards "B" into her own face and called the cops and said Barack Obama and William Ayers robbed and molested and gently whittled her. Yes, Ashley Todd, American Hero, is your easy and cheap Halloween choice for Change. You guys had some other good ones too, let's look at them!
- The Ghost of Tim Russert—beautifully tasteless.
- The Ghost of Print Media! (Go as Radar!) (Too soon?)
- This one is poignant: Andrea Mitchell surrounded by red balloons. No one will know what the hell your costume is, at all, but we like it.
THE WINNER: "Sexy Montauk Monster." Seriously, that is the best. Good work.
