Of course there are masks and costumes on the other side of the political aisle too. This year it appears the Governor Sarah Palin costume kit is a popular choice. So too is the Bush mask.

Political figures have always made for some interesting Halloween masks. This year however it seems the highly-charged political environment has spawned an entirely new generation of Halloween masks. And, depending upon one's political persuasion, consumers may or may not find them funny. One such example is the soon to be released 'Barakula' full over-the-head latex mask which has a striking resemblance to a cross between President Barack Obama and a vampire.

According to Curtis Sigretto, President of Halloween Express, one of the nation's largest seasonal Halloween chains, "I've been in the Halloween business for over 20 years and I can't recall a time when the level of interest in these political masks has been higher. We can't keep them in stock. It looks like this new 'Barakula' mask will be more popular than all of them - easily surpassing the demand we saw for the Clinton masks in the 90's. It's amazing." Sigretto was quick to add, "Of course there are masks and costumes on the other side of the political aisle too. This year it appears the Governor Sarah Palin costume kit is a popular choice. So too is the Bush mask."

The 'Barakula' full over-the-head latex mask is expected to hit store shelves October 10th and will be exclusively available at select Halloween Express retail stores as well as online at http://www.HalloweenExpress.com . Consumers can purchase a full range of Halloween masks from Halloween Express.
