You All Laughed at My Many Warnings...

GOP to warn of Zombie Attack in opposition to health care?

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann took a leap into fantasy politics on Tuesday, suggesting that the current Republican obsession with health care reform creating “death panels” could easily lead into an all-out panic over zombies.

A recent spoof (pdf) of academic papers, titled “When Zombies Attack!: Mathematicam Modelling of an Outbreak of Zombie Infection,” applies standard epidemiological methods to develop “a basic model for zombie infection” and concludes that “only quick, aggressive attacks can stave off the doomsday scenario: the collapse of society as zombies overtake us all.”

Olbermann pointed out that the conservative National Review has already weighed in on the zombie study, writing, “Zombies are cool. That’s just a fact. … Were these jokers European? Well, almost. They were Canadian.”
