Zombienomics

It’s an election year.  I can’t just put on blinders and pretend like it’s not.  That’d be un-American.  So without further adieu, I need to get on to the biggest hot-button issue that neither of the candidates has the, um, fortitude to tackle.  In fact, none of the journalists I’ve seen even has the, um, fortitude to ask about it.  And no, I’m not talking about immigration reform, or the long-term sustainability of social security (protip: contribute to your retirement fund).  I’m, of course, talking about how each man would handle the imminent zombie apocalypse.

So, without further further adieu, I’d like to speculate blindly about how either of the candidates would fare in the BATTLE FOR BRAINZ.  No.  I don’t like that title.  I’m going to speculate blindly about how either of the candidates would fare in Zombie Apocalypse-gate (if it’s a political situation, you know it’s bad when they add ‘gate’ to the end).  Actually, that’s still no good.  How about something about a candidate who cares not only about Wall Street, but also about Main Stre-OH MY GOD IT’S ZOMBIES!.  No.  Okay, let’s move on.  I’m sure inspiration will come to me later.

“Zombie Romney” has a nice ring to it.

Of course there are going to be a few factors to take into account as far as both of these men’s individual survival is concerned.  The first, and probably most important is going to be location.  However, since either would be in the White House if he were to win, this is kind of a non-starter.  Secondly, the people around them are an incredibly important factor.  Of course, regardless of which man is elected, he will probably be mostly surrounded by the Secret Service.

But how could I vote against quality artwork like this?

Actually, come to think of it, the “big picture” kind of thinking that is well-suited for Presidency is not the same attitude that will help you survive during the end of days (zombie style).  If either of the candidates had served active military duty, I’d probably give that person the edge right off the bat.  Neither wins that, though.

Since Obama’s 51 to Romney’s 65, and Obama has a reputation for playing basketball, I’ve got to give the quickness edge to Obama.  However, I also see Romney is being more accepting of the idea that you must destroy the brain to defeat a zombie, a concept which all zombie movie victims have trouble with at first.

There are so many unknown factors here (like where the outbreak starts, how much warning everyone has, the speed of the zombies, how the zombies deal with water, and whether or not they can they open doors) that I really can’t guess who would be the best leader.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I just want the Presidential candidates to soothe us with sweet sweet lies about how they’d deal with zombies.  Toss it into your stump speeches.  The CDC is already prepared.  For realz.

PS – Do you think bites are covered by ZombamaCare?

PPS – Zombie Policy would actually probably be called something really boring like “The Extermination Plan for the Pulse-Impaired” with journalists dubbing it something stupid like, “ZombieWatch 2013”
