Hotline (via Wonkette) has looked into a very important question: How could we media folks look even more scary than we already do? (translated: What are our Halloween costumes for this evening).
* CNN Justice correspondent Kelly Arena: “My girls are going to be Teen Titans, and my son is going to be Spiderman. If they get to be superheroes, why not me? So, I will be escorting them as Wonder Woman. After all, anyone who works and has kids is worthy!”
* Time’s Matt Cooper: “I don’t have one yet. …’Cowboy’ is the fallback position.”
* Ana Marie Cox: “I was thinking I could put a knife in the back of an electric blue dress and go as Harriet Miers.”
* Newsweek’s Howard Fineman said he thinks he will take his son’s old razor scooter and go as Lewis “Scooter” Libby. Fineman: “I’ll probably just pose with it, not actually risk riding it.”
* CNN Hill correspondent Ed Henry: “My son 4-year-old son Patrick wants me to be Batman just like him. But I’m worried about the tights. And with all of these endless Supreme Court battles, CIA leak cases and budget endgames to cover, I may need a character with a can-do spirit. So it might be ‘Bob the Builder’ instead: ‘Can we fix it? Yes we can!’”
* Time’s Karen Tumulty said she’ll be trick-or-treating with her 9-year-old son, who is going as Napoleon Dynamite. Tumulty: “I guess I’ll be the grandma figure (from the movie).”
You mean no one’s going to go as Scalito?
These Plame-gate costume ideas may work…
Or you could always just decorate your pumpkin to look like Tom Friedman…
