We scoured the Internet to find this year’s hottest Halloween costumes and predictably political costumes featuring versions of Barack Obama, John McCain, and Sarah Palin are everywhere. However, not everywhere Barack Obama costume represents change we can believe in, not every John McCain costume looks Penguin enough, and not every Sarah Palin costume is worthy of the VPILF. So we decided to compile this list of the 10 Worst Barack Obama, John McCain, and Sarah Palin Halloween Costumes (with a special bonus list at the end of the four best Halloween costumes!). Oh, and in case you’re wondering – nobody wants to be Joe Biden. Enjoy the list…
The 10 Worst Barack Obama, John McCain, and Sarah Palin Halloween Costumes
10. The Racist Obama Mask
Where do we start? Oh yeah – racism.
9. The “Doesn’t Even Kinda Look Like Obama” Obama Mask
Oh God. Nice effort there, mask company. Try wearing that mask and see if anybody even knows who you’re supposed to be.
8. The Afrobama Mask
He hasn’t had hair like that since they called him ‘Barry’. And that face is jacked. Not even sure if it’s different than the one above it. Either way, they both suck.
7. The Paper Masks
Don’t get a crappy paper mask. We know the economy is bad, but you’re not some trolley car hobo. If you’re going to buy a costume, you can afford more than a 99 cent mask. You might as well get a paper plate and write ‘Obama’ on it, you cheapo.
6. The Jay Leno-inspired Sarah Palin Mask
Does Sarah Palin have a jaw like Rumor Willis? You don’t have to like her, but you have to admit she doesn’t look like a linebacker.
5. The “Who’s This Guy?” Mask
Awesome Steve Martin mask, bro.
4. The Recycled McCain Mask
Jesus Christ. Did they just take an old monster mask and change the hair?
3. The Zombie McCain Mask
Do you really need to tweak how he looks to make him a zombie? Just sayin’.
2. The Trashy Alaskan Costume
That Sarah Palin… always wearing a black garbage bag trench coat.
1. The Half-Assed Sarah Palin Costume
Nothing says “Who Gives a Shit” like combining a ’50′s look with a feminism button.
BONUS MINI-LIST: The Two Best Political Candidate Halloween Costumes
We’re into it. And it strangely looks more like him than the ‘flattering’ ones.
1. The Sarah Palin Bikini
Yeah, that’s the spirit.
Well, there you have it. Did we miss any? Let us know.
