Dressing up in scary costumes to demand people give you their candy — Halloween seems like a cinch holiday for Democrats, and yet so many got it wrong this year.

U.S. Rep. Jason Crow’s family hit a little too close to home with characters that sum up many Coloradans’ experiences dealing with Democrat-run governments during the pandemic. 

Crow dressed as Darth Vader, while others in his family went with the Hunger Games theme. 

Crow’s campaign consultant should have been trick-or-treating with a sign that read: “Recently unemployed, will give bad advice for candy.”

Playing dress up with U.S. Sen. John Hickenlooper’s dog is exactly how we’ve imagined the Democrat’s Senate staff to spend their time in Washington, D.C. where they’re paid huge salaries to work for the people of Colorado. 

We’re also betting the dog is a better banjo player than Hick.

Then there’s U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, even her sweet little dog is too chicken to take on the progressives like AOC now ruling the House of Representatives. 

Which brings us to U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert. She gets the joke, and played along.

When Occupy Democrats’ tried to harass her with their lame “caption this photo” post, Boebert hit back with the best response:

“Are they going to compare me to their favorite puppy killer, Facui?”

This Democrat family went with gender stereotypes, which is pretty risky considering U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet is up for reelection next year. 

Bennet showed all the imagination in his “costume” we’ve come to expect from him, dressing as a Democrat politician shamelessly pandering for votes from First Responders. 

Finally, we were surprised this year to see The Denver Post get into the Halloween spirit, which dressed up as idiots.
