    LOL! This one will probably circulate on the internet for the next six months!


  2. - phocion - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 7:43 am:

    Man, Republican staffers really do have too much time on their hands. I liked the last zombie, though.


  3. - Snidely Whiplash - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 7:49 am:

    That was pretty funny


  4. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 7:57 am:

    phocion, I put it together last night.


  5. - Hanging Chad - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:07 am:

    The voiceover of Cross kinda sounds like Cross.


  6. - Leigh - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:08 am:

    Rich, your a genius. That was hilarious.


  7. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:12 am:

    Nah. I just chose the cast photos. JibJab did the rest.


  8. - Ghost - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:21 am:

    I do not think we should make light of the real problem of asteroid-satellite collision creating zombies. This comedic message distracts voters from the important issues. Defending America from sattelite smashing zombie creating asteroids!!


  9. - Chicago Cynic - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:33 am:

    That’s a friggin riot. Glad to know you did it Rich and not some Republican legislative staffers loafing on the people’s dime!


  10. - Levois - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:39 am:

    It would be funny if state Republicans really did use a photo of Ronald Reagan. lol


  11. - Ghost - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:47 am:

    But would the photo work on a Reagan democrat?


  12. - Frustrated Republican - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:49 am:

    In all of my adult life, I haven’t been so proud to be an American.


  13. - noname - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 8:59 am:

    Well, after 8 years of the ultimate Zombie (aka lemmings)Republicans, I’d say it’s about time!


  14. - P. - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 9:24 am:

    In “real” zombie news, I’m just finishing up this book, “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War” … written by Mel Brook’s son Max, pretty darn cool. It’s Studs Terkel meets George Romero.


  15. - OneManBlog - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 9:26 am:

    Glad the democrats can laugh about this as well.


  16. - Silent Majority - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 9:32 am:

    Outstanding!


  17. - Crimefighter - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 9:55 am:

    Blagojevich should had been one of the zombies along with Emil Jones.


  18. - DC - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 10:33 am:

    Rich, is Amanda still speaking to you?


  19. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 10:35 am:

    LOL. That assumes she did in the first place.


  20. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 10:38 am:

    I’m mostly curious how Frank’s gonna react to playing the female role.


  21. - It's 5 O'clock somewhere - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 10:57 am:

    A great way to move into the weekend…Thanks for the laugh.

  24. - rep. john fritchey - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 12:36 pm:

    So this is the thanks I get for letting you know about the other video?

    Thanks Fredo :)


  25. - Crimefighter - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 12:53 pm:

    I might redo this one with the cast of:

    Reporter: Brit Hume
    GOP Hero: Sean Hannity
    GOP Heroine: Michelle Malkin
    DNC Zombie 1: Nancy Pelosi
    DNC Zombie 2: Harry Reid
    DNC Zombie 3: Richard Durbin
    DNC Zombie 4: Ted Kennedy


  26. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 1:31 pm:

    For what it’s worth representative, I thought you were the most convincing zombie.


  27. - rep. john fritchey - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 1:51 pm:

    Um, thanks? Not exactly the stiffest competition though.

    (where’s a snare drum when you need one?)


  28. - Anon - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 3:41 pm:

    Thank God the Cross and Watson characters didn’t kiss at the end.


  29. - Anon - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 3:43 pm:

    Personally John I thought you were the best looking Zombie. Well maybe after Clinton.


  30. - zatoichi - Friday, Feb 29, 08 @ 3:58 pm:

    P, you’re right World War Z is a pretty good book. Met Max Brooks at a Zombie Fest celebrating the anniversary of Night of the Living Dead. What an event. Kinda like this video.
