Mitt Romney’s zombie apocalypse

For any decided voters who would like to be confirmed in their original perceptions, Joss Whedon has made a video about Mitt Romney — and the inevitable zombie apocalypse his presidency will unleash.

After “Buffy,” “Firefly” and “The Avengers,” I would pretty much watch Joss Whedon very slowly and boringly brushing his teeth, insist it was amazing, and link to it on this blog, but this is good for a few partisan chuckles.

But this raises another question: Where are the funny Romney endorsements? There have to be some, surely! So far, I've seen a lengthy ad of an animated Obama singing that he is a great pretender and some would argue that the Lena Dunham backlash might round that one up to a Romney endorsement, but there has to be more. Let me know in the comments.

Also, I have questions about this zombie apocalypse. For instance, can zombies vote? Outside Chicago, I mean, where zombie voting is enshrined in law. (I’m sorry, I volunteer with the Guild For Really Old Tired Jokes That Need To Get Out And Be Sociable For A Little Since Their Families Don’t Visit Anymore (GFROTJTNTGOABSFALSTFDVA), and it’s my week with Dead People Influencing Chicago Politics.) Also, is zombism a preexisting condition? Because that is one place where I draw the line at paying for other people’s health care.
