Halloween Costume Idea - ACORN Worker

Halloween is getting closer and I'm sure many of you don't have costumes yet. Well, don't worry! I have a great idea for a low-cost Halloween costume - all you really need is a clipboard, some voter registration cards, and some candy. Here's how you do it:

Get a clipboard and a bunch of voter registration cards. When trick-or-treaters come to your house for candy, just tell them that you will give them candy as long as they register to vote - for Barack Obama, of course. It's that easy! If you want to make a little ACORN sign that would be great, but it is in no way necessary. I think you will get a lot of laughs and, since you will have a bunch of signed voter registration cards, you might as well turn them in. Everybody wins, right?

Now, I know what some of you are thinking: "Didn't you tell me two years ago to sign trick-or-treaters up for sub-prime mortgages? Look where that got us."

Well, don't blame me for that. We all know that the Bush administration is 100% to blame for that crisis. If you're worried about the ACORN thing, we can find someone else to blame. Just enjoy Halloween and don't think of the consequences...oops! I used the 'C' word. Just enjoy Halloween!

You completely lost me on this post which isn't hard to imagine (ask Adam- I don't "get" a lot of things). Seriously, though, I think you need to sit me down and explain this one to me... Oh, and congrats on the birth of your new blog.

Is this an original idea? I thought I saw this on Obama's own web site, except they offer a free clip board and will actually pay you per registration. Good news is under the table! (Not too patriotic to not pay taxes though, but you gotta do what you gotta do to get them votes.) -ML

So, if a kid comes to my door dressed as a banker, should I threaten to harm his family unless he gives a mortgage to someone that shouldn't be buying a house?

Nice blog. Jana keeps bugging me to write on our blog, but maybe I'll just come on here and make comments on yours instead.

Okay... so Adam explained what an ACORN worker is to me and now I get it. And when I read him your post, he laughed. Don't you feel good about yourself now? Anyway, now I get it so you don't need to help me out.
