Halloween Pictures and Open Thread
The first picture is of Dark Wraith and Darc Rain lurking by a local John McCain campaign sign, doing our part to help undecided voters. It seemed to work: most people moved on by rather quickly.
This next picture is of your host, the Dark Wraith, sitting quietly near the doorway. Kids walk by, sort of ignoring what appears to be a scary prop. Once they knock on the door, I stand up and just look at them; eventually, they turn around to see me standing there silently offering candy. Mostly, it's the adults accompanying the children who twitch violently, although the older children get pretty fussy, too.
The last picture, below, is the Dark Wraith revealing his true identity before going inside to partake of the surplus candy that didn't get handed out in the socialist free-for-all that is Beggars' Night in modern America.
This is an open thread. Say what you have to say on whatever topic comes to your mind as we move from the festive spirit of Halloween 2008 to the even more festive spirit of Republican Burial Day that will be the general election on November 4.
The Dark Wraith should probably videotape the ceremonial first shovel of grave dirt.
Looks like fun! Nice prop work!
I should imagine that there were more than a few adults shocked all the way back to childhood.
It is nice to know that you evidently had a good time of the event though, you nasty redistributing socialist type you.
Just because of this Sarah Palin will never call on you for economic advice.
Commenting on Hawaiian officials declaring they have Obama's original birth certificate:

But where's the proof? Why the coverup? Look, if Obama was born in Hawaii, then how is it possible that a fire could melt steel girders?
Trog69, will it be the birth certificate business or The money: A spooky story (as reported by Joe Cannon) that brings Obama down?
Where DID all those campaign contributions come from?
Naw, Peter, the money people for the candidate from Illinois are still just channeling Mr. Obama's former "finance director," Vera Baker. By all accounts, she was a top-notch fundraiser.
Strange how she just sort of dropped out of Obama's picture and popped up in Washington, where she got a pretty darned successful consulting firm going there before she just suddenly dropped that work and ended up on the island of Martinique working on the tab of that "businessman" from Chicago.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Still, by all accounts, she was incredibly good as a fundraiser.
She never should have gotten on Michelle's bad side to begin with; then again, she did end up with a nice gig on an island in the Caribbean, far from the crowds... and the press.
The Dark Wraith will now get more hate mail from the Obamabot equivalents of the Right-wing hate machine.
I'm sure you both will explain a little bit of this intrigue to those of us out of the loop, yes?
From the Wraith's sidebar of a few days ago:
"So... how come it was okay to destroy Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, and it was okay to destroy Republican Senatorial candidate Jack Ryan, but it's not okay for the mainstream media to even so much as whisper the name Vera Baker?
"Ah, yes, that's right: Edwards and Ryan were both political opponents of Barack Obama."
A partial quote from Was Vera Baker Obama's Girlfriend?
Does anyone else get the impression the media doesn’t want to report on people like Vera Baker until after the election — and that both the Clinton and McCain campaigns have been unable to force them to do otherwise? Do you ever get the feeling reporters sit around, perhaps on top of piles of stories they choose not to report, asking each other, “You don’t really want McCain to win, do you?”.
Of course they don’t.
Just one of many sites available from Searching Vera Baker + Obama.
Note: A really wild, wide-eyed conspiracy theorist of my acquaintance (me being the squinty-eyed variety) maintains that the MSM is merely waiting until after
the election to raise all these questions, which in his opinion would create an even more hideous and volitile shitstorm of controversy.
Man, you weird! You cool, but you defnitly weird.
