The similarity between liberals and zombies is obvious, and has already been the subject of a Sunny Lohmann parody, in which she observed that they can even be cured by showing them their health insurance bill (they can’t extrapolate, of course, so it has to be their bill). But even after that they remain dangerous, since they’re still Democrats.
However, Mark Baisley has an article on Townhall today that not only makes the comparison, but points out that this isn’t even a recent discovery. In the 1940 film, The Ghost Breakers, Richard Carlson described zombies to Bob Hope as walking blindly with dead eyes, and pointed out that they simply follow orders without knowing or caring what they’re doing. Hope then observed (Baisley includes a brief clip), “You mean, like Democrats.”
The problem has clearly been around for quite a long time, going back at least to the New Deal.
