Presidential Masks

Kerry masks in for Halloween

Paul Blum says he's finally gotten his John Kerry masks in -- just in time for Halloween. Blum, who owns a New York costume and magic shop called Abracadabra, says the vinyl masks were hard to get for a long time because only one company makes one that's any good. If you're looking to predict presidential results by mask sales, Blum says a lot more people ask for George Bush than John Kerry. But the Kerry masks have been rare, and a couple of buyers have been willing to pay 300 dollars for them.

Now both Bush and Kerry retail for 24 dollars. For what it's worth, the masks are made by a French company.
