For those of you who like to dress up on Halloween, but are too cheap and/or lazy to come up with an actual costume, you can download a printable Sarah Palin mask from the Chicago Tribune. Joe Biden mask now available as well (although really–whatever your political ideology–does anyone really want to trick or treat dressed as Biden?). McCain and Obama masks promised for later this week.
And don’t forget to vote!! Many states allow early voting starting today. Fellow independent-minded, progressive Chicagoans, here’s a ballot guide from IVI-IPO, which you’re permitted to bring with you while you vote (I’m sure you know whom you’d like for POTUS, but how about Water Reclamation District and Cook County Circuit Court?), if you’re so inclined.
