How about a broomstick and a black hat?

The Republicans search for the "scariest Democrat." Looks like they've found her.

In its ongoing effort to bring maturity and reason to the political process, the Republican National Committee this morning launched a Halloween-themed "Who's the Scariest Democrat" contest.

The RNC's contest Web site features scary thunder sounds, cobwebs, tombstones and even a skeleton head. The president's rather frightening approval ratings aren't mentioned, but at least the vote is rigged: When you click on a candidate to discover why he or she might be the "scariest Democrat," you also cast your "scariest" vote for that candidate.

Anyone want to guess who has 92 percent of the vote so far?
