I've followed the political shenanigans in Washington, D.C., lately, especially the extreme right wing (tea party) in the House of Representatives (aka House of Reprehensibles) and the Senate, particularly Utah's own radical junior senator, Mike Lee.
As a result, I've decided to dress up as a politician on Halloween. I'll wear office attire and a big tinfoil hat with dangling tea bags and carry a copy of the Constitution in hand. Simple just like our elected members in Congress.
