COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Zombies seem to be everywhere these days.
In the popular TV series "The Walking Dead," humans struggle to escape from a pack of zombies hungry for flesh. Prank alerts have warned of a zombie apocalypse on radio stations in a handful of states. And across the country, zombie wannabes in tattered clothes occasionally fill local parks, gurgling moans of the undead.

"It was a way that the population was getting to exercise the fact that they felt like they hadn't been listened to by the Bush administration," Lauro said. "Nobody really wanted that war, and yet we were going to war anyway."
A Zombie PING for ya!
Zombies are euphemisms for mindless, soulless hordes of people. In the 1950s and 60s, it was communists. Today, it is the politically correct way to portray people like ObamaGirl, the ObamaPhone woman, the “Obama’s gonna pay my car payment” woman, the purple-shirted rent-a-mobs, the “if Zimmerman is acquitted, we gonna riot” crowd, etc. In other words, it is still communists, but now its the domestic ones!
Bob Hope gets it right about Zombies/Democrats:
Nice try, but this trend has been around far longer. Dawn of the Dead came out in the 60s I think.
Not to mention zombie survival video games were popularized by Resident Evil in the 90s, so does that make that backlash against Clinton?
Someone needs to point out to the author that the Zombie fad peaked under Obama, not Bush. The Vampire fad peaked under Bush.
An observation I’ve made.
I’ve noticed that most of my liberal friends are into things like Zombie walks where they dress like Zombies.
My Conservative friends are also into the Zombie fad, but on the other end, they are into the whole ‘Zombie hunter’ thing (Zombie targets, Zombie ammo, etc).
after talkjing to so many left wing radicals then I can honestly say that they ae zombies and not what I thought as a cult.
Heard one guy on Levin tonight state how it;s not right that people want to make profit on property because used clothes and cars do not make profit

Predator or prey, you choose.
Zombies are popular IMO for several reasons.
1) Fits the atheistic world view of today that other monsters (vampires, demons etc.) fail to fit in by being too supernatural.
2) Luddite fear of science going too far, creating a bio-weapon with severe backlash in a global pandemic.
3) Plausibility. Zombies are a dumb threat in which the lazy average Joe can be heroic.
This is all about and nothing more than a barometer of a retarded American attention span.
Not long ago it was Vampires
Now the Zombies are fading.
Next up, aliens
Until that fades and we/they recycle the meme.
Best. Clip. Ever. :)
Maybe they have Evolution of Intelligence
What does a vegetarian zombie crave?
What does a plumber who turns into a zombie crave?
What if they are gluten free? (wife had this wonderful observation)
What did the zombie from Stanley Steemer crave?
What did the zombie window washer crave?
What did the air traffic controller who turned into a zombie crave?
Ok, so other than that being a keeper.
He lost me when he said Humanist.
The most evil F**ks, left over eugenicists, manipulative, insecure, not seekers but resistors of truth, rationalizers, story tellers, the way, the new, Freudian frauds, players of uncertainty, the light, and talk about polytheism.
What do you get when everybody is God?
‘House’ IS a Zombie, I swear!
I think also that zombies are hard to personalize. More at dehumanized.
I think the zombie craze exists because it allows the fantasy of killing without guilt... enjoying it ...
Starve the beast. Avoid buying new clothes.
I noticed that, too!!!
“Many have died, last week, on these streets. In the basement of this building, you will find them. I have given them the last rites. Now, you do what you will. You are stronger than us. But soon, I think they be stronger than you. When the dead walk, señores, we must stop the killing... or lose the war.”
