Funny, zombies. So if you have "sense" of "humor" then vote OBAMA. If you have a simple sense of logic then vote your choice.

Finally! A political editorial that makes sense!

@chalket - OldOllies comments are hilarious...when he`s not talking politics. I would even say the same about 5cats, except the only other topic he talks about is cat girls.

@OldOllie: The default assumption for ANYONE in TV or movies is "flaming libtard" until they show otherwise.

True that @HOBOMOE! But 2 little details:
1 - @OldOllie never said to "boycot" Firefly, just that he`d enjoy it less knowing it`s creator was an uber-left-tard.
2 - We conservatives simply cannot avoid watching things made my libtards; they control all 3 industies! (film, TV and music)

Luckily NO ONE controls the internet...yet...

I`m going to defend OldOllie here. A writer`s opinion should be independant of his work, but if the guy has some ideas that you don`t agree with he doesn`t deserve your time or money. Supporting their media actively supports them and the continuation of ideals you find questionable. It`s the same reason people don`t watch fox news because of the strong conservative bias. You watch the channel, they get ad money and are able to continue making material. Joss is entitled to his opinion but not the support of fans and customers who find his political declaration repulsive.

Hmm, you`re either hopelessly optimistic or don`t know much about politicians.

I think we should go back to doing what the Greeks did and vote once a year to kill/exile politicians for exercising any authority not explicitly given to them....or just for fun.

This guy does not make a single good point. Obama Not Bush, OBAMA has tanked this economy, run up the debt, increased government dependency, Increase welfare to the breaking point....what world are you liberals living in that you think that Obama has been in ANY way a success!!

Oh drat me sideways with a flag pole.

Why bring up this stupid, non starter race poo again?!

Here. Feast on this.

More people will vote for Obama, because they "don`t want to vote for a white guy, than will vote for Romney because they don`t want to vote for a black guy.

It`s the truth!"

what`s it like living in such a twisted fantasy land where up is down and down is purple?

auburn, you cant possibly know how many people are voting by race in either direction. Either way, its stupid.

My daughter is extremely handicapped and as a consequence receives a lot of state benefits. As a result my wife and I have spent countless hours in various offices.

My point here is I find it extremely hilarious when the left throws out the race card. There are just as many `whites` as there are `blacks` who receive state and federal benefits. Many do so legitimately, some do not. I`ve seen both and it`s not just one race or the other that does so.

For me it`s not a left or right issue, it`s not a `black` or `white` issue, it`s an issue of what direction the United States will take after the elections. Instead of sitting here and calling each other names for what he/she believes in people should start working towards a better future for themselves and their children.

tedgp, I didn`t post on I-A-B during both Bush administrations, so how could you POSSIBLY know what I think about them?

I don`t consider either of them to be Conservatives. GWB, Sr was slightly Conservative-leaning. GEB, Jr was a moderate at best.

But they were both better than the alternative, so yes--I voted.

John Edwards has a $500 dollar haircut! And a mistress he knocked up while his wife had cancer!
Hint: twice he was the Democrat Vice Presidential candidate (Gore `00 and Kerry `04)

The only racist I see here is you @BF: You constantly attack Romne & his supporters based entirely on skin colour!

Because you are using all the Approved Republican Code Words for slamming Obama. You made it about race by claiming Obama is somehow handing our the entire economy to those `sucking at the public teat.`

Your whole tone is racist. So you work hard? So do I. So do a lot of people black and white.

But you want to hand it all over to the Koch Brothers and their 1 percent buddies -- and make no mistake, that`s eXACTLY what your magic-underwearin` pal Romney means to do. Start more unfunded wars, throw tax breaks to the ultra-rich, squeeze what`s left of the poor and middle classes to death, and then sail out of here on his Caman Islands cash right before the whole thing tanks.

And you`re practically lining up to give him blow jobs because he`s white and has a 50 dollar haircut.

Nice going there, Bubba.

And you would be the equivalent of a robber breaking in and demanding the other person`s belongings because you felt it was unfair he had it and you didn`t.

And if you aren`t making it about race, why are you the only one bringing up "black" and "white"?

I`m not making it about race. I`m not the one supporting some sociopathic robber-baron who clearly intends to gut the poor just to line the pockets of the rich JUST BECAUSE HE IS WHITE and the other guy is black.

That would be you and your fellow Rethuglicans. Which is why I originally labelled all of you as stupid -- you`re the equivalent of the guy who finds his home being robbed but gets talked into helping the burglar haul his own stuff out to the van.

Hell, you could be tricked into tipping, too.

There`s no hope for you people.

I always thought Biden looked like a creepy pedo f*ck, this confirms it.

So.......in summary, even Obama`s celebrity supporters can`t find a better reason to vote for him than "because he`s not Romney!"

Please, if you are going to vote for the repugnant pathological liar again, at least do it for a smarter reason than who he isn`t.

Seriously yes 5cats, talking about Romney leading to a Zombie apocalypse was funny, the Parkour line made me lol. The other video was very winey, I assumed that was because so was the original, and not funny. These were not political attitude, from a foreign point of view, I like Obama, but he is not my President. So it is just speeches and how he presents America to the world. Most of the all around satire I have seen from both sides seems nasty, focuses on either Romneys religous views or Obamas origins. It was funny to just see something funny and absurd. I did not even take that video as a serious attempt, just plain all round geek humor. The most it could hope to grab would be the swing votes of a few Browncoates and Buffy fans.

Oh, the whole "I hate Obama because he`s black!" crap again?

Seriously?

I hate Obama because of his policies and all the B.S. he`s done to the country. I could care less what race he is. You Liberals are the only ones who like to play the race card. "I voted for Obama because he`s BLACK--and I`m proud of it!"

Not of the left, eh? BUT:
Right leaning parody is "annoying"
Left leaning parody is "having fun with it"
ic...

fyi: Obama is cutting $600 BILLION from Medicare, not `wants to` he HAS! So you like Medicare, but don`t mind massive cuts BY OBAMA which Romney will put a stop to... and hate Romney.

Not `leftist` at all!

What amazes me about Rom-bots is how they utterly fail to realize that Romney doesn`t give a rat`s ass about them. He`ll say whatever it takes to get a vote -- but if he ever takes office, it`ll be gloves off, and screw you white trash ingrates.

too, I wish for once most of Obama`s opponents would just come right out and say they hate him BECAUSE HE IS BLACK. Because that`s the truth of the matter.

Luckily, most of the truly reliable political forecasters put a Romney win at somewhere around 26% likely. Unless of course Tagg Romney`s magical voting machines come into play...

@SmutleyButt: I`m guessing that @sutra46 is still butt-hurt over the smacking I gave her on some other threads, therefore she`s living in an imaginary world (like most Obama supporters) and thinks that I will comment here for her to "make fun of".

Sadly, she will likely self-parody with NO IDEA of how ironic her foolish posts are. That`s been her track record thus far...

Ok I am gonna give my overall opinion, because I was accused in previous posts of being to the left. No matter who wins the election you will end up with a Coperate stooge running the show. Most countries are the same. All you are voting on is window dressing, the actual house is almost always the same. It is the way the political system rolls, you need money to get into power and that money comes with a price. To me that video was just funny, it had the sense to at least have fun with it, because if you can not laugh at these crappy political systems we have, you might as well not vote. Sure vote Romney for tax cuts or Obama for Medicare, just know that the system rolls on regardless.

1:14 "They (the zombies) will need brains" = Democrats have nothing to fear!

This was beyond stupid. Obama`s 6+ TRILLION additional debt will harm American far worse than anything Romney could do.

Typical libtard thinking: Romney MIGHT DO what Obama HAS ALREADY DONE! Therefore you should HATE Romney and vote for Obama!
Logic!

Yes, you and your "friends" WILL eff it up MUCH worse if you somehow let Bishop Romney into the White House. Obama is far from perfect, but he really does want progress for ALL of America, not just the wealthy. Your dynamic duo (Ratman and Rob`em) have already promised to throw half the country under the bus, and I guarantee YOU will get run over too.
