For Eight More Days, The Emperor Wears Clothes


Halloween is next weekend, which means that starting next Friday, you will be forced to pretend that each of the 700 billion Sarah Palin costumes you see is hilarious, winning, and topical. This will be terrible—an exercise in bad faith that will test the very resilience of the human condition. So! Enjoy this sartorially unremarkable weekend, for next weekend's free candy comes with a price.
