Cheers to Joe Dante

...for his hour-long horror show on TV showing American war dead, newly shipped from Iraq, coming back to life, bursting out of their flag-draped coffins, and lurching, as zombies, after neocons, right-wing Christians, and conservative pundits. I have mixed feelings about the recent wave of zombie popularity -- I preferred the erstwhile elite minority status that being a zombie aficionado conferred upon one -- but I'm delighted to hear at least these new populist zombies are being put to good use. Eat a Republican for me, boys! Go to 'em!
