business news in context, analysis with attitude

The National Retail Federation (NRF) is out with a new survey from BIGresearch saying that the most popular Halloween costumes this year will be vampires, princesses, police officers and pirates, while politicians, nurses and Batman are out.

“The departure of both nurses and politicians from the top costumes list could be an indication that Americans would like to shelve the health care reform debate – at least for one night – to have a little bipartisan fun,” said Tracy Mullin, NRF President and CEO. “Pop culture always influences Halloween costumes, and it will be interesting to see how creative Americans can get this year.”
KC's View:
I hate costume parties. Always have. The good news, is I rarely get invited to them.

But this year, I actually hope that we get invited to one, because I have the perfect costume in mind.

Mrs. Content Guy and I would go as a Death Panel.
