Back in June we posted the poll below. Well now Bloomberg has “scooped” us with their own insight on the key question:
When zombies invade, who do you want for president?
Here’s an interesting excerpt from the Bloomberg piece:
One problem a president would face, [zombie researcher Daniel] Drezner says, is that the zombie crisis, like so many today, might begin ambiguously: “When it emerges, it will be very, very hard to define exactly what the threat is.”
Presumably, it would begin with some sort of terrible pathogen (the sort that has turned most of humanity into zombies on one of cable television’s most popular shows, “The Walking Dead”), but the devastation wouldn’t be immediate. The 3 a.m. phone call might begin more like this: “Something bad is happening, Mr. President, but we’re not sure what.”
Within days, though, it would become clear that in order to save what remains of humanity, a president would have to take the most dire and seemingly cruel steps imaginable, working in an atmosphere of paranoia and pervasive death and bureaucratic miscommunication.
Our poll is still open, so please vote.
Originally posted June 27, 2012: Poll results released today indicate that most people think Obama would do a better job than Romney at repelling an alien invasion. Maybe they are responding to the fact that Jimmy Carter called out Obama; receiving criticism from the 39th president is a sure-fire way to show you are strong on defense topics.
All of this made us wonder:
Granted, Jimmy Carter isn’t running for president. But he seems to think he’s relevant to this election so why not.
