A few days ago I read Daphne Prost’s very funny article COULD THE ZOMBIES ALL JUST DIE NOW? PLEASE? For your enlightenment, her website is http://daphnepropst.wordpress.com As I read her article, I suddenly realized where Hollywood got the idea for a zombie. The idea grew from many years of Hollywood moguls observing our “leaders” in Washington DC. To make sure I knew what I was talking about, before I put pen to paper, I looked up the definition of zombie on my computer’s dictionary; I was right. The definition of zombie reads:
“A person who is, or appears, lifeless, apathetic, or completely unresponsive to their surroundings.”
Now, if that doesn’t describe our Congress and our President, I don’t know what does. This also explains why Congress hasn’t been able to balance the budget for the last 50 plus years. Have you ever seen a zombie doing arithmetic, using a calculator or a computer?
Everyone remembers Michael Jackson’s music video THRILLER, with all those zombies dancing around. TA-DA! Michael could have saved thousands of dollars in make-up, costume and productions expense if he had simply paid a bunch of our Congressional members to do all that dancing and prancing. Imagine House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Obama in the front row of all those zombies dancing in the dark. The 9 Supreme Court justices would have looked mighty spooky too, in THRILLER, bouncing and hopping around in their long black robes.
As a result, hence forth and forever more, the number one job requirement for a person to hold any government office, local or national, elected or appointed, is to have absolutely no family history of zombiism. So, when you vote, never vote for a zombie. Please?
We can’t eliminate all the zombies in Washington, but we sure as heck don’t have to elect them and hope they’ll successfully run our government.
Not voting for zombies is not discrimination against a cult, it’s a matter of self-defense.
