Campaign ’08 Final Weekend 2: Goblin For Attention

With the official Halloween politicking over, Palin took her daughter Piper trick-or-treating in Dauphin. Piper dressed as a snow princess. On the campaign plane and at a rally, Palin’s infant son, Trig, was costumed as an elephant. — LAT

Official politicking over?!?

Funny how Obama and his daughter couldn’t catch a moment of peace on Halloween night (among family, friends and their children’s friends in their own neighborhood), while the attention-thirsty Palin clan, exploiting their kids yet again, converted even the trick-or-treat ritual into a photo op. Notice, by the way, how both Mom and First Dude are completely oblivious to their snow princess as they fixate on the attention of this resident.
