Tea Party Zombies Are Dying, But Alas Not of Natural Causes

Oh dear. There's a new over-the-top video game from StarvingEyes Advergaming wherein you slaughter the "Tea Party Zombie" likes of Palin, Bachmann, Gingrich and Beck in blood-spattered settings. Some of the characters are clever - "Generic Pissed Off Old White Guy Zombie," "Factory- made Blonde Fox News Barbie Who Has Never Had A Problem In Her Life Zombie," "Koch Industries Whore Lobbyist Pig Zombie," "Express Racist Views Anonymously On The Internet Modern Klan Zombie" - but the blood and gore and sounds of shots are disturbing, and the right is having a fine  self-righteous time with it. Couldn't the zombies just have had to, we dunno, get re-educated by Noam Chomsky?
