Okay, first the 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....

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.
