This final full week of the 2010 campaign delivered its fair share of Halloween-worthy frights. Topping the ghoulish behavior was the pre-debate head-stomp administered to MoveOn activist Lauren Valle by a Rand Paul supporter. Talk about your monstrous mash. The Paul backer, Tim Profitt, then took chutzpah to a whole new level, telling a reporter that Valle actually owed him an apology. Then there was the fear-mongering intent of Sharron Angle's campaign ads showing groups of menacing-looking Latino men streaming across the border -- a gang of Willie Hortons with a Spanish accent. And there was the president telling Jon Stewart he thinks Larry Summers has done "a heck of job" -- and not meaning it in a Brownie kind of way (despite his "pun intended" attempt to walk it back). Now that's scary. Happy Halloween, HuffPosters!
