Zombie Jesus for President

Suppose you are an American voter who doesn't particularly care for McCain or Obama. You are no libertarian, and you cannot imagine voting for the Green Party candidate. Fortunately, you have another option besides simply staying home on election day. You can join a group of crazed evangelical Christians and vote for a corpse. But this isn't just any corpse - this one has either been dead for over 2,000 years or never existed at all. Oh yeah! We're talking Zombie Jesus for President.

Not exactly known for embracing reality, a group of evangelical Christians in Pennsylvania are campaigning for Jesus. To lend credibility to their cause, they are led by a white guy with dreadlocks (photo here). Surely that will help.

In all fairness, I must say that I agree with some of the positions held by this group. It would be nice to see America finally do something meaningful to help the poor among us. It is just too bad that their goals have to be wrapped up in a dead guy.
