The scary state of Republican presidential politics

This past weekend, Newton held their annual window-painting contest, where area youngsters paint Halloween-themed images on the windows of local merchants. While the contest’s youngest participants typically stick to traditional icons such as witches and werewolves, older kids often paint witty images making punny allusions to current events, such as this depiction of Donald “Trump-kin” and Marco “Boo-bio” discussing the so-called death tax. Is a fanciful debate between a ghost and a toupee-wearing jack-o-lantern any scarier than the actual state of the Republican presidential campaign?
