Halloween 2008 and I'm dressed as GOP vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin. I tried to find a stuffed animal fruit fly to carry around as means to distinguish myself from the other Sarah Palins wandering 9th St in Durham, but to no avail. So it goes. And now for the second annual HALLOWEEN reader poll on this 31st day of October...

Which of the following do you find scariest and why?

(answer in comments) a) Bush's last stand against the environment b) Sarah Palin as President c) The current state of our economy d) John McCain on SNL e) Global climate change * Alternative frightening submissions of your own are also encouraged * And of course, would it really be Halloween without a tribute to the Ghostbusters?
