PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE A. ZOMBIE SCORES FIRST NEWSPAPER
ENDORSEMENT FROM THE WEEKLY WORLD NEWS
Popular Columnist Ed Anger Throws Support Behind
Undead Candidate Running to Restore Zombies to Televisions Everywhere
The campaign of the first undead contender for the nation’s highest office, A. Zombie, has just received a major boost with a hearty endorsement from one of the nation’s most unique media outlets, The Weekly World News.
Enthusiastic support for the candidate came from Ed Anger, the hyper-opinionated columnist who, since 1979, has been offering opinions The Economist called “so vitriolically right-wing that they may be coming from the left.” The commentator’s weekly columns are also included in the book, Let’s Pave the Stupid Rainforests and Give School Teachers Stun Guns: And Other Ways to Save America.
“Why am I voting for this undead leader?” writes Ed Anger. “Because it’s time for a new kind of leader, it’s time to elect somebody who is dead, not someone who acts dead! What we need is somebody who appreciates good, well-developed brains. We need somebody who eats brains. We need to elect A. Zombie for President of the U.S.A.”

Known for its major scoops about society, science and the world around us, The Weekly World News has also been an unlikely source of spot-on political coverage, especially prognostications regarding Presidential Elections. The Weekly World News’ Alien character has correctly predicted the outcome of every Presidential contest since Ronald Reagan in 1980!
Since announcing his candidacy at a high-energy rally in San Diego on August 20, Zombie and his human wife/spokesperson, Patty Morgan-Zombie, have been on a cross-country bus tour to five major U.S. cities, including Tampa and Charlotte, where they brought their pro-zombie message to thousands of supporters and media at the Republican and Democratic Conventions.
“My husband appreciates this ringing endorsement. If he could speak, he’d most definitely say, “Thank you, Ed Anger,” Said Patty Morgan-Zombie.
A. Zombie’s complete platform and his campaign spot can be found at www.azombieforpresident.com. His campaign can also be followed on Twitter at @AZOMBIE2012.
A. Zombie’s campaign is organized by AMC Networks, home to AMC, WE tv, IFC and Sundance Channel. Satellite company DISH dropped these networksearlier this year because of an unrelated lawsuit and is now in the disadvantaged position of being the nation’s only major television provider without these channels and their popular shows.
A one-issue candidate, A. Zombie’s mission is to rally zombie fans around the country who don’t have access to these networks and shows to find an alternative television provider before the highly-anticipated third season premiere on October 14, 2012 of the top-rated series, AMC’s The Walking Dead — A. Zombie’s favorite show.
