Attacks by Zombies and Democrats (but I repeat myself).

Geoff Montgomery (Richard Carlson): It's worse than horrible because a zombie has no will of his own. You see them sometimes walking around blindly with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring.
Larry Lawrence (Bob Hope): You mean like Democrats?

My table at the gun show was next to an end cap display of a tee-shirt company called The Passionate Patriot of Fort Walton Beach FL. This headline, The Walking Dead’ Draws Record 16.1 Million Viewers, reminds me of a tee shirt suggestion I made.
Democrats = Zombies 
They are nothing but walking appetites for other people's lives.
They kill unthinkingly and are not bothered by the carnage.
They hate people with firearms.

I'm sure that you, gentle readers, can do better.  But there certainly may be something to the theory that, just as the alien invader movie craze of the Fifties was an allegory for Communist infiltration and subversion, the current popularity of zombie shows speaks to the renewed fear of collectivism versus the individual.

Well, except that Democrats have no interest in brains.

I didn't realize until reading your comment "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" underlying these is really about Communist infiltration! It makes sense and fits perfectly.

And here are some anti-collectivist, anti-National Socialist items discounted which are sure to upset a few authoritarians still possessing a brain stem. http://patriotdepot.com/last-chance-closeout/

"Are always short on brains." Most of the women got shorted on looks too. Seeing them rant on TV, almost makes ya want to opt for exile.

I think this is more accurate:

conservative= citizen exersizing free will

democrat= subject complying with mandates and orders from overloards

I don't buy that any more. Bootlickers come in all varieties.

However it is pointless to argue about it. The "left-right" spectrum is just a device created by the ruling class to divide (and conquer) the people. The only real question is whether a given individual is willing to leave you alone to run your own life. The labels are irrelevant.
