A stranger in glasses, seemingly a ghost never seen til he strikes, no fodder in the gossip columns, humorless visage, thinning hair parted on the side, touch of New York accent, pinstripe suit, briefcase full of subpoenas….
Fitz is without question the scariest thing to hit Illinois government and politics in a long, long time.
Pat Fitz…no costume needed.
Or, how about Abraham Lincoln all peeved off because his 200th birthday parties have been cancelled. He roams the earth looking to mummify Mr. Beard with a bunch of silk ties.

last spring WMAY in Springfield posted a full sized picture of the governor, intended to be downloaded and made into a mask for a rally against cuts in state government spending - so that state employees could attend.
I as a listener asked them to post that mask up again on their web site for Holloween usage - perhaps it is up by now.
Sure did see a really scary Illinois costume, a prisoner on the front of the black and white stripped suit was the name George and George Ryan’s face was on the front of the mask and someone who looked like the Gov on the back, but the name said Public Official A.
Blago (Governor Rewrite to Do Right), dressed as Dudley Do-Right, of the Canadian Royal Mounted Police, riding backwards on his horse, as always.
Dick Mell as Inspector Fenwick.
Patti B as Nell Fenwick, the daughter of Inspector Fenwick, the head of the Mountie station. However, Nell is more interested in Dudley’s horse (called Horse), to the point that she scarcely notices Dudley’s interest. (That really is true of the cartoon.)
Pat Quinn as Bullwinkle J. Moose. Bullwinkle received an Honorary Mooster’s Degree from Wossamotta U
Dan Webb as Rocket J. Squirrel, a/k/a Rocky. Rocky’s intelligence bears nothing on his ability to be conned and flimflammed by simple minded crooks with weak costumes. Although he is highly educated he still sticks to his primitive ways, by collection nuts. (yep, that’s correct for sure)
Kevin Fanning as Boris Badenov, a spy for “Fearless Leader”.
Rich Miller as “Fearless Leader.”
I know, I need to get a life. I’m way too informed about Rocky & Bullwinkle, but it’s still funny.
An unscientific observation while out trick or treating with my daughter (near west side of Springfield): every house that had a presidential campaign sign on the lawn also had its lights on and was handing out treats. Saw about half a dozen Obama signs but only one McCain sign in about a six-square-block area. No difference in treat quality.
