Okay, first the obvious....my first inclination is to put on a pink hoodie, scratch a backwards B on my right cheek, do that raccoon-eye thing with the left eye, and call it a day.
But that would be cheating. That would be lazy. Besides, I'm in NYC and there'll be about 50,000 ersatz Ashley Todd variations staggering around the streets of the Village.
Most of them will have beards and hairy chests because hey, that's just the way it is in the Village!
I don't want to wear one of those rubberized candidate masks, because frankly they all give me the creeps.
Then I got to thinking about something involving a bathtub and a teaspoon, so that I could be the Wall Street Bailout, but that one is a bit obvious too.
I've come up with various lame-ass "Joe" the "Plumber" variations, and I've considered and rejected being either Lipstick or Pig.
I thought about being W, but the movie took the sizzle out of that one.
Can you help me out? Can you share your best political costume idea? Keep in mind, everybody here is on a budget and eyeing that broadband bill, wondering how it would be to go back to dialup ... so the more homemade the idea, the better....
