We talked about undead presidential candidate A. Zombie on ShockYa before, and now there’s more to report! The fictional candidate has received an endorsement from The Weekly World News, the publication famous for the report on Batboy, along with other reports about strange creatures, UFOs and world cataclysms.
Ed Anger, the columnist for The Weekly World News, gave a glowing endorsement of the candidate. Since 1979, Anger has been giving opinions so out-of-bounds The Economist has called them “so vitriolically right-wing that they may be coming from the left.” The commentator’s weekly columns are also included in the book, “Let’s Pave the Stupid Rainforests and Give School Teachers Stun Guns: And Other Ways to Save America.”
“Why am I voting for this undead leader?” states Anger. “Because it’s time for a new kind of leader, it’s time to elect somebody who is dead, not someone who acts dead! What we need is somebody who appreciates good, well-developed brains. We need somebody who eats brains. We need to elect A. Zombie for President of the U.S.A.”
A. Zombie’s campaign focuses on his favorite show, “The Walking Dead:”
A. Zombie’s campaign is organized by AMC Networks, home to AMC, WE tv, IFC and Sundance Channel. Satellite company DISH dropped these networksearlier this year because of an unrelated lawsuit and is now in the disadvantaged position of being the nation’s only major television provider without these channels and their popular shows.
A one-issue candidate, A. Zombie’s mission is to rally zombie fans around the country who don’t have access to these networks and shows to find an alternative television provider before the highly-anticipated third season premiere on October 14, 2012 of the top-rated series, AMC’s The Walking Dead — A. Zombie’s favorite show.
