A San Diego man, whose name is A. Zombie, is announcing his attempt to unseat President Barack Obama in November.
In addition, he and his living human wife Patty, are planning a tour of several American cities to talk about their paranormal platform. On their itinerary will be Charlotte and Tampa, where the Democratic and Republican National Conventions will be held, respectively.
This has been a fairly dreary election, so it's refreshing that someone is injecting a little humor into the political process. The San Diego man says his platform consists of two major issues, advancing the cause of the undead, and drumming up support for his favorite television show, The Walking Dead.
However, Monday's announcement will undoubtedly fuel the crazy conspiracies theories about a coming apocalypse. There were all those cannibal attacks earlier in the summer, and now one of these zombies is actually trying to get into the White House?
If he wins the election, A. shouldn't have too much trouble making friends in Washington. Zombies lack self-awareness and conscious thought, but show a mindless adherence to authority, which pretty much describes everyone in Congress.
