(UPDATE: The Post reports that Bob McDonnell and the RPV have condemned this. Smart move, also the right thing to do. In contrast, LCRC Chair Mark Sell has not commented. Hmmmm. UPDATE #2: Oh, now Sell has commented, calling it "a light-hearted attempt to inject satire humor into the Halloween holiday." Oh, I get it. Hahahahahahaha!!! - promoted by lowkell)
Here's what the Republican blog Too Conservative (specifically, the blogger "Loudoun Insider") has to say about this mailer by the fun folks at the Loudoun GOP.
...I am no fan of Barack Obama, but putting up a photo of him as a zombie with a bullet hole in his head???????????? Like him or not he is the legitimately elected the President of the United States and Commander in Chief of our armed services in a time of war. THIS IS DISGUSTING AND SHAMEFUL. Someone should send this to the US Secret Service.
Of course, this isn't exactly surprising given who's in charge of the Loudoun County Republican Committee (LCRC) -- Mark Sell, seen here as part of Eugene Delgaudio's band o' wackos, "dressed up in a dark blue windbreaker with 'Thought Control Police' across the front, with the balding head, glasses, and goatee." As Too Conservative's "Loudoun Insider" wrote in March 2010, the election of Mark Sell would represent "a return to the Dark Ages." True, but here's what I want to know: did they have zombies with bullet holes in their heads back in the Dark Ages? Heh.
