RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A Halloween-themed graphic featuring a zombie President Barack Obama with a bullet hole in his forehead provoked widespread outrage and the attention of the Secret Service Monday after a local Republican committee in Virginia used it to scare up interest in Halloween parade political activities.
The montage, a banner on a mass email to Loudoun Republicans, mingles seasonal images including a jack-o-lantern, a disfigured U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi and a throng of flesh-hungry zombie Obama supporters.

The Stupid party is at it again. What the heck were they thinking?
What over-credentialed moron thought that was a good idea?
Where’s my facepalm GIF....
Sounds bad but I notice they didn’t print the image.
Nothing better to do Secret Service? Why the hell are we paying you?
My question is why did they need to make up a picture of Obama looking like a zombie? He looks like one already!
That was a very, very bad idea. Of course the Secret Service would be all over that.
I hope this just a case of the forgotten sarcasm tag.
After all during the GW Bush administration we had a book on how to assassinate the president a movie of the same and little out cry about either. And I ddont recall the SS being all that worried about it.
And lets not forget that the graphic of Bush as the Joker predated the Obama as the Joker.
It seems odd that political humor becomes unacceptable when a Democratic President comes to town.
“Sounds bad but I notice they didnt print the image.”
Don’t worry, the Democrats do have the picture of Obama with a bullet in his head and you will see it again and again on campaign commercials in 2012.
There will be billboards in every African American neighborhood with that image with the words, “This is not only what the Republicans want to do to President Obama, but it is also what they want to do to you and America.”
That image would be relevant if it were paid for by the Democratic Party.
The problem with the Obama bullet in his head picture is that is was paid for by the Republican Party.
What were they thinking?
Maybe I am wrong but isn’t the only way to destroy a zombie to shoot it in the head?
It must have been a liberal making the flyers......
The GOP have so many bullet holes in their foots they just go right through now.
It’s like they want to marginalize themselves.
I’m sure the Democrats would be just as outraged if it was George Bush or Sarah Palin. \sarc
It is one thing for an individual to make fun of the president in this manner. It is another for the opposition party to do the same.
And yes, there was little buzz about the same thing for Bush, and the reason is because the MSM is in the Dem's hip pocket. So it does no good to the GOP to throw red meat like this to the MSM. That is why I think it was stupid.
How do we know it was a bullet hole? Bullets do not kill zombies, so maybe it was showing how POWERFUL Hussein is when under attack.
Or, maybe it was showing in figurative manner, that Hussein is too open minded.
Let’s not jump to conclusions, as Hussein said after a Muslim screamed “Allah Akbar” and murdered a dozen soldiers at Fort Hood.
“Im sure the Democrats would be just as outraged if it was George Bush or Sarah Palin.”
Would you be outraged if the Democratic Party paid for an ad that had a picture of President Bush with a bullet in his head?
Obamoid head wounds are not fatal - the brain is not a vital organ for one of those things.
Yup. The incomparable Stupid Party in action, once again. I’ll never donate a dime to those morons. Any contributions go directly to the candidate.
“...a banner on a mass email ...

How can you disfigure something like THAT?
I don’t like Obama any better than you do, but this shouldn’t get a pass. Would you have felt the same way if it had been Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, etc?
Ever hear of “two wrongs don’t make a right”?
Oh the humanity!
So you’re one of those people that think two wrongs make a right. Wrong. This is bad. Plus, the way we act sets us apart from the Dems. Behavior like this takes that away from us because it makes us no better.
Would you please spare us the “above the fray” drivel. We certainly appreciate your “two wrongs don’t make a right senitiments” though.
It doesn’t matter that the media ignored the behavior. You know they are going to. We should not act like the Democrats...ever! It is juvenile to say, “But he did!”. So what? We have to be the adults in the room. This was a stupid move that they knew would draw fire. Once again, the GOP shoots itself in the foot.
You can bet your kid’s college fund that the Obama campaign will use that image of Obama with the bullet hole in his head in their own ads.
And, it will be an effective campaign ad.
Who are you to speak for this thread and site? Drivel? That’s laughable. Would you please spare me your holier-than-thou admonishments. Take your nastiness someplace else. We have to be the adults in the room, because the Democrats certainly aren’t. If you can’t understand that, then...

So your picture of the hanging mannequin dressed up like Sarah Palin was humor? I’m not laughing. This subject is a serious one. Guess you’re one of those folks that laugh at inappropriate times. There are cures for that, Francis.

Like I’m sure the Secret Service investigated a zombie Obama with a hole in his head.
I mean, they have the real thing, hole and all, 24/7 just a few feet away.
This was a dumb idea
I bet he said the same thing about "The Assassination of George Bush." Not!
No it was to point out the Hypocrisy of the left. You must be hitting the sauce you are double posting. Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!
Are you for real? Go back and read your posts.
We don't need you admonishing us on what's acceptable.
Nah, not at all.
What's to be upset over?
(do I need to add the /sarc tag?)
Man, what a bad idea. I disapprove. I’d be outraged if liberals did that sort of thing when Bush was president. I mean, I WAS outraged when liberals did that sort of thing when Bush was president.
The only thing the GOP done here is pay for the graphic art for an Obama 2012 ad.
Of course they’ve done worse. Many of those threats against Bush resulted in a visit from the Secret Service— and rightfully so. That’s not the point. The point is that making threats against the President is illegal, and our side should not be doing it either.
What I would do to those involved in this abominable excrescence would make Satan cringe.
