Joss Whedon Supports Mitt Romney for Zombie-Apocalypse-Beckoner-in-Chief

“You know, like a lot of liberal Americans, I was excited when Barack Obama took office four years ago. But it’s a very different world now. And Mitt Romney is a very different candidate. One with the vision and determination to cut through business-as-usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to the zombie apocalypse.”

Whatever your political leanings, you have to admit: The whole time Joss Whedon was delivering that speech, you kept a laser focus on that window behind him, expecting to see the beginning of the zombie invasion, didn’t you? Or was that just us? Alas, the few glimpses of what we thought might be “walkers” seem to be regular old “pedestrians.” Maybe that’s what we’ll end up calling them if things break the way Whedon describes. Especially if we get the “old-school, shambling kind.” And if the apocalypse begins in L.A., the way we’ve always hoped.
