    Alliance for a Better Halloween Costume

    The Alliance for a Better California has released the Top 10 Halloween Costume Suggestions For Governor Schwarzenegger

    #10 – Dr. Evil - Whether telling anyone who disagrees with him to “zip it,” or spending $80.... Meeeellion….Dollars… of taxpayer money on a Special Election that nobody wanted in the first place, the Governor has definitely channeled Dr. Evil.

    #9 – Vanilla Ice - Much like the one-hit-wonder from 1990, no one’s buying what he’s selling anymore.

    #8 – The Wizard of Oz - Unfortunately, once the voters of California got a glimpse of the little man behind the curtain, they realized what a huge disappointment he was.

    #7 – Mr. Smithers - Selling out to corporate interests faster than you can say “hypocrite,” the Governor needs “everymen” Homer and Bart Simpson to show him the error of his ways.

    #6 – Boss Hog - Just like a politician, this Governor wants more power at all costs. But he uses the power he currently has to hurt everyday Californians and help his own corporate cronies.

    #5 – Tonya Harding - With public polls showing his initiatives dropping like lead balloons, the Governor’s handlers are spinning faster than figure skaters in a death spiral.

    #4 – Daddy Warbucks - Since he can’t seem to find enough Texas oil tycoons to fund his campaign, Schwarzenegger has put nearly $8 million of his own money into financing his floundering initiatives.

    #3 – The Joker -Despite campaign promises to be “different,” it turns out the Governor has pulled a fast one on the voters of California, proving himself to be a politician through and through.

    #2 – Tarzan - Since he hasn’t struck a chord with voters to sell his initiatives yet, the Governor’s campaign is swinging to a new vine and changing campaign tactics on almost a daily basis.

    #1 – Pete Wilson - Governor Schwarzenegger didn’t just rip a page out of the Wilson playbook - he’s turned himself into a carbon copy of the former Governor. Scary. But it turns out Californians don’t want to turn back the clock on issues like immigration, public education and health care.
