Oddity of the Week

Okay, okay, it’s late, but it’s worth waiting for:

Chicken costumes banned at Nevada polling places.

This isn’t entirely out of the blue, if you remember Nevada Republican Sue Lowden’s plan to lower healthcare costs by encouraging patients to barter with doctors:

You know, before we all started having health care, in the olden days, our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor.

Nevada Dems immediately launched Chickens for Checkups.  The Chicken Converter popped up to calculate, at market price, how many chickens it would take to pay for various modern medical procedures.  Since then, chickens have been a recurring theme in the Democratic campaign in that state.  Thus, wearing a chicken suit is voicing opposition to Lowden and falls into the same banned category as political pins and T-shirts.

But the worst part?  She’s still leading.
