In a fit of drollery, perhaps inspired by Halloween, Rasmussen Reports conducted a telephone survey of American adults, inquiring if they thought zombies could do a better job of running the country than current federal employees. The result was a 37-37 tie between the undead and the brain dead. (I guess we should call this a dead heat.)
This survey is useful in plumbing the depths of despair and frustration Americans feel about their obese and fumbling federal government. But I wish Rasmussen had asked the obvious follow-up question, to wit: Do you believe the people running our federal government ARE zombies?
