hot damn. Obama's campaign has more money than they know what to do with. I'm not complaining, mind you. Pumpkin-related art is an important contribution to our cultural heritage.

LMGM -- they're not part of the official campaign, they just did an exceptional job mimicking the graphic design. From the About page:

Are you part of the Obama campaign?
No.

McCain would look way spookier on a pumpkin.

Given the way some people are reacting to the whole Obama thing, don't you think an Obama-themed "Boo!" pumpkin isn't exactly going to help the cause?

Are you the guy who showed up at the Palin rally holding a stuffed monkey he called "Little Hussein"?

I'll stick with my usual Ted Kennedy, thanks. It's a lot less work.

Yea. Boo is exactly what Obama does. He scares me.

He scares me.

More than the alternative?

I didn't carve...I painted.

Biblio - nicely done!

Gimmee a stencil of McCain to carve on a pumpkin just now ripe.
In two weeks - by election day - it should look just about right.

I am scared that Obama might not actually round up and kill the running-dog imperialist oppressors when given the opportunity. I didn't donate 500 times under false names for nothing!

This would make a good stencil.

Well, it's scary anyway.

You want scary?

Where can I get my Ron-Paul-o-lantern stencils? :-)

Wow. That ages her about ten years. It's meant to be some sort of a tribute, right? It's like a bad airbrush portrait on velvet in stencil form.

I don't live in a Republican enough area to see one of those, at least I hope not. Can you imagine seeing that in a window decal, beaming down at you from the tinted rear window of the gigantic Cadillac Escalade in front of you, casting her maternal gaze downward in gentle scorn at your pitiful existence? I can ...
