Joss Whedon For Romney (Sort Of) of the Day

The Avengers director's endorsement of "Zomney" is a bit unconventional:

Like a lot of liberal Americans, I was excited when Barack Obama took office four years ago. But it's a very different world now. And Mitt Romney is a very different candidate, one with the vision and determination to cut through businesses' usual politics and finally put this country back on the path to the zombie apocalypse.

Romney is ready to make the deep rollbacks in health care, education, social services, reproductive rights, that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, overpopulation, disease, rioting, all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland. ...

Let's all embrace the future. Stop pretending we care about each other, and start hoarding canned goods. Because if Mitt takes office, sooner or later the zombies will come for all of us.

It's easy to peg The Avengers as a fringe movie as it's based on a comic book and is helmed by Joss Whedon, a name that is synonymous with indoor kids and people who love to mix musical numbers with their vampire slayers. Well, the nerd dog days are over as The Avengers was been welcomed in other countries and earned a pretty penny: $178.4 million, to be exact. It also has the prestige of having the biggest opening weekend in 12 regions. While the movie won't open stateside until May 4th, America is already preparing to make Whedon its new movie overlord.
