Dress up day

Apparently, today is officially "dress-up" day on the presidential campaign.

Drudge is highlighting a photo of Barack Obama from one of his foreign trips a couple of years ago. To some eyes, it might seem like a Taliban Halloween costume.

Drudge claims that the photo was circulated by Obama's main Democratic rival -- even as he points out the hypocrisy of such an act.

Indeed, if this was from Hillary Clinton's campaign, then someone will probably be fired for distributing it.

Take away the mudslinging angle and this is an opportunity to enjoy the costumes.

For example, take a look at this snapshot of Clinton with Benazir Bhutto in 1995. Here she is with one hat or another.

While those are good, I think they compare unfavorably to this one of cowboy Obama.

One thing is certain. It is too bad that Rudy Guiliani cannot be considered for this competition.
