Every one of them should wear necklaces made out of ACORNs.

Won’t their satiric point get lost in the context of an actual Halloween parade? They’ll just look like Obama supporters enjoying Halloween. How will anyone get the joke?

Hope this spreads to the West Coast.

It’s not a spinoff of that group. Although the parodic aspect of the groups is similar, we’re not really trying to exert any broader electoral influence. Hopefully Oleg will be there and there will be footage uploaded to The People’s Cube, although everything’s tentative at this point.

In any case, your point is well-taken. The first time we did this a large number of spectators and parade-goers did get the joke-and applauded our efforts-while a smaller number jeered and heckled us when they realized what we were doing. But yes, there were a handful of individuals who remained completely clueless, which is what you’d expect in that neighborhood I suppose.

That being said, everyone who participated in it last year had a great time. Anyone who wants to tag along this year is free too, provided they have a costume to wear.

-good times, Gerard.

I think the giant papier mache Kool-Aid pitcher might help drive home the satiric point.
