In a publicity stunt for 'The Walking Dead', a zombie is attempting to become the next US president.

Mr A. Zombie and his wife Patty Morgan-Zombie arrived at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte as part of a six-city-tour to "highlight the plight of the zombie community." The unusual stunt saw the undead candidate don a NASCAR uniform as he was driven on several laps of Charlotte's Speedway track.

"My husband is running for president, because he could have taken a certain issue lying down, well, because he was already lying down, but he decided to stand up and pledge to fight for equal viewing opportunities for all," said his wife.

"The world's first zombie presidential candidate and his wife Patty Morgan-Zombie arrive in Charlotte, the city hosting the Democratic National Convention, to "highlight the plight of the zombie community"."

If the Republican Party has any chance of winning, they'll need to replace Mitt Romney with this zombie. Good luck to them.

I sure hope he wins,I know for a fact that a Zombie would run the country better than the fool we have now or the fools we had in office before,Only thing is is that the Zombie would be a whole lot smarter.
