Ron Havens, a Democrat residing near Odessa, New York, set up a Halloween display featuring mannequins that look like presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain. However, according to the Stargazette.com, the Obama figure looks like he is running from McCain, who is dressed in a hooded robe like a Ku Klux Klan member and carrying a baseball bat.
Havens told the newspaper that his display was a way of protesting McCain’s treatment of Obama. The arrangement sits in Havens’s front lawn and is only a few yards from the highway. Despite the stirred controversy, Havens says he has no plans to take down the private exhibit.
