Still looking for a creative Halloween costume for your little precious?

Salon contributor Dan Savage, the sex advice columnist and editor-in-chief of the "The Stranger," and co-writer David Schmader suggest these truly frightening costume ideas inspired by one hell of a terrifying election season.

There's "Ralph Nader," "Arrested protester," "Shoe Bomber Richard Reid" and "Jenna Bush's Liver" -- all you need is a couple of beer cans and a Hefty bag for that last one. But it was "The Littlest Prisoner at Abu Ghraib" that gave War Room the biggest jolt.
