Political Costumes To Really Get Your Halloween Party Talking... About Politics!

Walking into a Halloween party last year within the District of Columbia was like taking a physical tour through the website know your meme. Frightening in their own way, binders full of women, fired big birds, Onion Joe Bidens, and "get at me bro" Paul Ryans roamed the district on All Hallow's Eve, scaring children with small talk and dropping candidate endorsements along the way.

Washington loves a good (or bad) political costume. And it makes sense. The subject matter is salient, and fellow partygoers will actually get the joke. It's also a bit cliched. Be assured you won't be the only sexy (insert not-sexy politician here) at the party.

There's a rule to social gatherings: Avoid politics and religion. Well, there's no hope for escaping the former at D.C. parties, so we may as well embrace it. Crowdsourcing via Twitter, we rounded up what will be the best (or worst) political Halloween costumes of the year.

As always, you can add "zombie" or "sexy" for a fresh spin on the idea.
