    Regular slow zombies or the newer fast zombies?

    You don’t catch me with your trick question!

    But it they could be persuaded to eat Republican brains, wouldn’t that be a good thing? Starvation might be a possibility however.

  5. 5

    You’ll never convince me that most of Congress aren’t zombies already.

    @3: Even the slowest zombies are faster than Congress.

  6. 6

    But… I thought… isn’t Obama a zombie?

    @ ^ Pen : I think that’s about the only thing the Rightwing fringers haven’t accused him of being yet actually although I could be wrong about that..

    How many people think zombies could run the country better?

    I thought they already were zombies?

    Most of those in Congress seem to have had their brains eaten already right?

    But , sure, it be hard for zombies to do a much worse job than the current mob from what I gather.

    This reminds me of this post on Jim Wright’s Stonekettle Station blog :


    with some of its descriptions of the GOP and teaparty. The last lines about the sort of Lincoln needed especially ring (metaphorically) true.

    There is the book Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation, albeit it calls (implies) people who voted for Obama in 2008, not the President himself, are the zombies.

    And then there is NRA Paints Obama As A Zombie Worth Shooting At Convention:

    [A] Zombie Industries booth worker at the [NTA] convention in Houston … admitted [the life-sized target, which bleeds when shot, has] a striking resemblance to the President and that it appeared to be intentional, quipping, ”Let’s just say I gave my Republican father one for Christmas.”

    Now, imagine the reaction a Black man would get saying, “Yeah, I bought my pops a life-size image of President (Ronald) Reagan. He just loves to shoot him in the head.” I’m pretty sure these folks wouldn’t find that nearly as amusing; they would probably cry for charges of treason.

    Another reporter said of the NRA’s request to have the target removed from sight, ”They are just scared some liberal reporter will come by and start b*tching. I’m not so much a reporter, but even still here I am…reporting for duty. Feel free to pitch in after, y’all.”

    As “admirable” as it is for someone at the NRA to say, “Yeah, can we Not have a zombified version of the President to shoot at during our convention in plain sight?” the item is still for sale on the organization’s website.

    And a Generalisimo Google™ image search for obama zombie finds numerous depictions of the President as a Zombie.
