Va. GOP Condemns Graphic with Zombie Obama Shot in Head

November 1, 2011

A Loudoun County Republican Committee Halloween-themed graphic featuring a zombie President Barack Obama with a bullet hole in his forehead has provoked condemnations left and right.

The montage, created to rouse interest in GOP activities at Loudoun's Halloween night parade, mingles altered images including a disfigured U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi and zombie Obama supporters.

The posterized image of a rotting, undead Obama with a bleeding, large-caliber hole an inch above his right eye prompted Democrats to cry foul and state GOP chairman Pat Mullins to denounce it as "disgusting."

A conservative northern Virginia blog, Too Conservative, called it "shameful" and recommended it be reported to the Secret Service.

There was no immediate reply to telephone calls and e-mails to the Loudoun GOP and the event's named organizers.
