Walking dead

To the Editor:

I never had watched the TV series Walking Dead until last week, when my wife tuned in the marathon out of pure broadcast boredom.

I then realized the connection between the tea-bag nation and zombies. When one actor shouted, “Benghazi,” all the zombies turned and followed him. When another screeched “Fast and furious,” they turned and chased her. When another screamed, “IRS scandal,” they once again changed direction to follow. They did not know where they were going or why they just followed the loudest voices because they are, of course, brain-dead zombies.

I’ve never watched Madmen, either, but from the promos, it seems to celebrate the good, old days of booze in the workplace; forget the consumer and worship corporations.

Sounds a lot like John Boehner and the Republican congress; a better than zombies, but still nearly brain dead.
