The United States Tea Party has finally succeeded in bringing about the zombie apocalype, says Felix Salmon.
Ted Cruz, and the Tea Party generally, are basically doing their best to play out this exact fantasy. By shutting down the government, they are destroying not a desert gift shop, but rather billions of dollars of real-world economic activity.
when you look at the grass roots of today’s Republican party, it’s easy to see a bunch of heavily-armed zombie hunters: today’s downtrodden masses, perfectly positioned to become tomorrow’s post-apocalyptic elite.
It's late 2013, and we still love our Gothic politics. Or, at least, Gothic political rhetoric.
