Second Amendment Fun: The Resplendent Joy of Shooting "Zombie" Targets That "Bleed" and Look Like President Barack Obama

Their hate for Obama is palpable. Can you smell it? Taste it? Does it excite them?

The citizen's militia must be ready for any possibility. The citizen patriots who are prepared to fight "tyranny" are also training to put down a zombie outbreak. We should count ourselves lucky.

I am all for free speech. I do not think that the Secret Service should (necessarily) pay the proprietors of Zombie Industries a polite visit. But a phone call, and accompanying explanation of the civil and legal consequences of selling "bleeding" "zombie" Obama targets at which to project one's bullet-rage, may be warranted.

As one of the commenters on Crooks and Liars pointed out, could this Obama target actually just be a generic depiction of how black people look in the Right-wing imagination? The zombie is undead, an unthinking mass that acts on instinct. As George Romero demonstrated to us all, the zombie can be a metaphor for almost any social issue or identity.

Maybe this black zombie is not Obama per se, but rather a projection of the White Right's dreams of black beast rapists who attack and waylay good white people in flash mobs and attack their homes unaware that good white women like Gayle Trotter are there to defend the homestead with her handy AR-15 musket in hand.

Sad; pathetic; and nonetheless, very serious.
