Unlikely endorsement for GOP candidate

Avengers director and geek-culture god Joss Whedon has an interesting take on why to vote (or not) for Mitt Romney: He's the candidate most likely to bring about the zombie apocalypse. In the oddly low-budget YouTube clip below, which is already closing in on 1 million views in its first 24 hours, Whedon makes the case that Romney's policies will bring about social unrest while also allowing evil corporations to have their way with the populace. The real question, of course, is whether you think a zombie outbreak would be a disaster or a long-awaited, firearm-fueled Libertarian utopia.
