Michele Bachmann has become one-with-a-teapot. Every voting citizen is likely to see her during the coming year spewing scalding steam, but unable to make quality tea.
Dr. Ron Paul could wear a surgeon's scrubs, with a lot of fringe, able to leap onto any patient to cut fat and some muscle.
Jon Huntsman, perhaps the most intelligent and most civil of the candidates, could dress in a three-piece striped pants suit of the diplomat he once was. But, since civility isn't a trait among this year's Republican crop, the other candidates will probably throw a potato sack over him and bury him in the dirt.
The cast from The Wizard of Oz always presents good costume possibilities.
Mitt Romney, once standing straight, is now leaning so far right that he is likely to be kissing the floor soon. Perhaps he could dress as the Cowardly Lion and hope to find some courage.
It's too obvious to dress Newt Gingrich as a salamander, none of whom have monogamous relationships. But, it is possible that this incarnation of the former House speaker could wear the mask as Dick Cheney, the man without a heart, who dresses as the Tin Man.
Dorothy, the sweet Innocent with intelligence and compassion, isn't in the running for the Republican nomination. Sens. Susan Collins, Olympia Snow, and Lisa Murkowski are all possible Dorothies but have no reason to dress up since the Republican party doesn't like anything sweet and moderate.
None of the candidates could even dress up as workers, since none recognize workers or unions as a critical part of society.
