Evanston real estate broker Alan May says he’s put a new twist on an old family tradition this year.

With help from an online site called YesWeCarve.com, he’s turned the annual carving of the family jack-o-lantern into the creation of a Barack O’Lantern — suitable for display on many a liberal-leaning Evanston front porch this year.

    Well, that ought to put Hannity’s panties in a big bunch. Oh my, talk about violating a unique American tradition. We’re talking major Commie conspiracy here. Everybody head for the hills.

  2. a Pumpkin You Can Trust!
    Bill, thanks for picking up the story from my blog. The website http://www.YesWeCarve.com has many different templates, from simple to complicated… but they were surprisingly fun and easy to carve. And I think you’ll find them on many Evanston porches, liberal-leaning not required.

    And I’m not a broker, I’m just a Realtor®, but thanks for the instant promotion.

    and Billyquick… it’s not a commie conspiracy, it’s the democratic process at it’s best. Choice! And just to be evenhanded I did post an image of a McCain O’Lantern too (although I called it Squash McCain).
