It’s Halloween Week once more.  Time for the candied apples, mulled cider, Jack-O-Lanterns and costumes.  Time to hear the Fundies complain about all the "Witchcraft" connected with kids having fun.  Time to watch a scary movie.  Since this is a political blog, I thought I should combine Horror movies and Politics.  Actually the past 7 years or so have been truly terrifying, scary and horrific.  So which horror of the past 7 years scared you the most?

And the nominees are:

Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue - (A group of befuddled Supreme Court judges rule that a corporate-controlled narcissist-nitwit has won a Presidential election.  Then the nightmare begins!)

The Blair Bush Project – (Two world leaders secretly plot to preemptively invade a country using PowerPoint slides, aluminum tubes, and a drunken madman named "Curveball").

Something Catastrophic This Way Comes -  (The story of "Democracy" in Iraq)

Texas Cheney Massacre – (The story of a sinister "man behind the curtain" who devises plans to rule world.)

Escape from New Orleans – (Large groups of people are trapped in rising floodwaters without food, water, or medical help for several weeks).
 
The Rummy – (A man once thought dead, is resurrected from a previous warmongering regime, and begins making preparations for a new war).

Dead Voter Walking - (The first 4 years were bad enough, but how the hell could they vote for him a second time?)

The Stepford Democrats - (Real Democrats have mysteriously disappeared and have been replaced by phony Democrats).

I Spit on Your Constitution – (What happens when a President and an Attorney General decide that the Constitution is just a "piece of paper").

I was a Teenage Werewolfowitz – (The story of how a group of sinister creatures called "Neocons" plot with large Corporations to take over a government, and ultimately the World.)

Attack of the Killer Spinach  - (Due to cuts in government spending (specifically FDA and USDA),  various people are poisoned by salads, chili, and lead paint).

What ever happened to Baby Jane? - (The sad story of a sick child without health insurance)

Children of the Damned – (Children of the future try to pay off the debts of their parent’s, while dealing with Global Warming, Peak Oil, and an environmentally ravaged Earth.).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
