Irrefutable proof that Bush will win, or something

More Halloween masks of him have sold than those of John Kerry. You might think that's a ridiculous way of predicting the winner of a presidential race, but it's been accurate every election since 1980. I think it's part of the tripartite portents: Halloween masks (53%-47% for Bush), the Hiphop Debate (57%-43% for Bush) and the Onevote mock election decided by US school kids (55%-45% for Bush).

Mask story from Ann Althouse, Hiphop debate from the unstoppable Instapundit, and the Onevote story from Little Green Footballs

Hey, I have enjoyed...your blog is informative - even entertaining.

I have a halloween sites. They pretty much covers costumes and masks related stuff.

Every year my son Dylan and I have been building our Halloween animatronic display. This year we added 12 new figures and my wife had been making the clothes etc. but then I clued in that Halloween Costumes were the ideal solution - ya, ok I'm slow but...This year is really cool because we've done an HP Lovecraft display that I'm sure he'd appreciate but I'm not so sure he'd approve of this - The Necronomicon - Is it just me or is that just plain goofy ? Anyway, everybody is doing their own Haunted House thing now but hey - it's fun and if you've got kids I really suggest you try it yourself if you haven't already. It's a nice change from the usual Christmas Lights routine and a lot of scaaarrry fun. Happy Halloween everybody.
