Mitt Romney and the Zombie Apocalypse
It's hard not to see what's happening in the United States as anything less than a slow-motion horror show.
A nation reeling from the catastrophe of Hurricane Sandy.
A presidential election too close to call.
National opinion polls suggest the race for the popular vote in Tuesday's election is so close that only a statistically insignificant point or two separates the two rivals.
And an ever mutating Mitt Romney threatening a Zombie Apocalypse if he loses.
In what his campaign billed as his “closing argument,” Mitt Romney warned Americans that a second term for President Obama would have apocalyptic consequences for the economy in part because his own party would force a debt ceiling disaster.
Trying to scare Americans into voting for him, like some kind of economic terrorist.
So I'm glad to see that the Obama campaign is trying to remind voters what might happen if Romney wins...
Even if it would be far worse than that video. A real nightmare of mass misery, economic catastrophe, social unrest, religious fanaticism, environmental catastrophe, and war.
And who knows what might happen if Obama wins, but the result is so close the Republican extremists, their billionaire backers, and their teabagger militias, refuse to accept the result?
What I do know is that almost every one of my American friends is working his or her butt off this weekend to try to head off that zombie apocalypse. And I couldn't be prouder of them, or more grateful.
For we are truly staring into The Abyss. Obama may not be perfect, but he is the best we got. The fate of the world is now in the hands of all decent Americans.
And only the Army of Hope can save us...
