At the last minute, I got a ticket out of the country. Not only do I get to escape the wall-to-wall political ads, but I also don't have to open my door to strangers seeking candy.
In that spirit, let me warn you that dressing as Obama may be dicey if you're not African-American, especially if you don't spring for a mask. And not just any mask.
If you're a woman, and you dress as Sarah Palin, don't forget to be extra sexy. (Of course, that's the advice for women and girls, no matter what the costume.) Apparently, lots of men plan to dress as Palin because it's always a scream for a man to pretend to be a woman. (Feel free to go back and read my post on blackface and drag.)
