Everything is political. Even, it seems, Halloween. Just for evil grins and giggles, here’s a gallery of jack o’ lanterns from this year and previous years, variously carved, scraped, hollowed out, and/or painted to make political statements. The knife/razor/scraper-wielding skills demonstrated in this group are nothing short of amazing. If only the energy put into pumpkin carving and costume-making reflected an equal zeal for getting informed about issues–and voting–we might live in a less scary country.
