Washington, October 28 : An owner of a home in California has hung a mannequin dressed as Sarah Palin by a noose, saying that it is part of her 'scary' Halloween decoration.
The effigy of the Republican vice-presidential candidate wearing a red business suit, eyeglasses and brunette beehive wig, hung by a rope off the chimney - right above a devilishly clad John McCain surrounded by paper flames.
Though the outdoor decor, which featured the Republican candidates at a West Hollywood home in California, was resented by some of its neighbours, owner Chad Michael Morisette claimed it should be taken with a pinch of salt keeping in mind the Halloween season.
"It should be seen as art, and as within the month of October," Fox News quoted Morisette as telling CBS 2 News.
"It's Halloween, it's time to be scary, it's time to be spooky," Morisette added.
