AMC Continues Zombie Attack on Dish With Undead Presidential Candidate A. Zombie heads out on tour

Depending on your ideological leanings, a viable third-party presidential candidate may sound like a good thing right about now. Even if he's undead. A pasty-faced decaying dude named A. Zombie, created by AMC Networks as part of a creepy ongoing anti-Dish-Network campaign, has just launched a whistle-stop tour of the country to promote his self-serving agenda. He's trying to get the satellite provider Dish to once again offer AMC, home to zombiepocalyse hit The Walking Dead, and sister channels WEtv, IFC and Sundance. (The two companies are locked in a legal battle.) A. Zombie made his dead-ish debut in San Diego on Monday and plans to hit Dallas, Atlanta and New York. The upcoming political conventions in Tampa and Charlotte? He'll be there, too, stumping on slogans like, "Reduce, reuse, recycle, reincarnate" and "No zombie left behind." Some might say A. Zombie is still more lifelike than Mitt Romney. But would anyone really vote for a guy with no foreign policy experience and no braaaaaiiins?
