The Ghoul Old Days

There isn't a whole lot of Zombie stuff to talk about this week, but since it's the 4th of July weekend, I thought some political zombieism was appropriate this week. That having been said, here's some Zombie Politics:

The first year that Uncle P was allowed to vote, the race was between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. As young gay Democrat, I was horrified when the ancient Republican from California won and was sure we were headed for nuclear annihilation. Thankfully, I was wrong, and Reagan actually managed to facilitate the end the Cold War. Reagan may have been "The Great Communicator," but his economic policies were often hard to swallow.

I was a college student working in retail (about the most zombie-riffic industry there is, outside of accounting) at the time Ronnie was in office and making just above minimum wage, so I may be just a bit biased when talking about his administration...

From The Inevitable Zombie Apocalypse, comes this 2009 clip about a resurrected Reagan, running for POTUS:

Zombie Reagan Raised From Grave To Lead GOP

Hmmmm.... is it me, or do you have deja vu, as well?

Since there's so little Zombie News to report this week, here's a hilarious little video from Hulu that more than qualifies as Zombie Nonsense. Please enjoy this week's Zombie Clip of the Week, Jim Henson's Resident Evil 5:

Here's hoping none of you Zombiephiles end up missing digits this weekend.

Hopefully, next week will be a bit more exciting.

More Zombie Althistory, soon.
