Witch ahead in polls

The Candidates

Recent polls indicate that in the race for this year's Halloween T-shirt the witch is ahead in the polls, although some critics think it is too DISsimilar to the current witch T-shirt administration. "It's different than my last one," The May Queen commented, "and different than yours, too, mommy." Mommy commented "yes, I forgot to paint the moon first, and so had to make it smaller and not behind the witch. But I added the bats. Nice touch, huh?" Despite the disconcerting differences, in the informal poll taken this afternoon during the change out of your church clothes hour the folks being polled voted decidedly for the witch shirt.

The Incumbent

However, the tie dyed jack-o-lantern T-shirt cannot be completely disregarded. The May Queen was delighted when it was first introduced. "You MADE it for ME, Mommy?" she asked, and quickly moved to inspect all the various faces.

Of course, we won't know for sure until the real polls close on election day, October 31st. The shirt that wins the coveted spot that day will surely wear its victory well.

This post has been a Monday Mission. This week's mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a post in the style of Campaign Coverage. If you write a Monday Mission post please link to it in the widget below.





Join us next week, when our mission is to write a post in the style of the plot summary for a horror movie.

(and I can't help but point out this fabulous piece of REAL campaign news: Colin Powell is endorsing Barack Obama! His interview is wonderful, and his endorsement is explained in thoughtful and kind terms, as you would expect of him.)

This is really, really good. Not a twist I would have thought of. Do we get to vote? Not north of the border? Ah, well. It would have to be a sweater up here anyway.
Hey, thanks for linking me. I just got on to do that.
Hugs!

Very nice. I always kick myself in the butt after reading your great Monday Missions after I've totally forgotten (or tried to) that it's Monday again.

I'm all for the witchy shirt- super cute!

In the event of a spilled lunch, the candidates just might have to form a coalition government to ensure the body politic is covered all day long.

Would you believe that I was thinking of making my MM for this week on pants? I still might...

Also, I love the shirts. I'm impressed! Great post, too.

I was pretty thrilled about Powell's endorsement of Obama, myself.

I love the shirts--I want to make one, too!

Chantal said...

Those shirts are a fab idea. Is there a link to how to do them? Or are they just painted?

The endorsement was pretty stunning eh. I am not in the US and really shouldn't care, but I do. Everything that happens in the US has an effect on us here in Canada.

This has been my favorite poll in a long, long while. The pumpkin shirt ROCKS!

Great job on the shirts and the blog. I just lazily bought GAP Hallowe'en shirts for my kids. For me, this is big. Big as in crazy. Oh well, it's all about the kids. (yours mean more.)
