“change”… that what the kids are calling it these days?

If you don’t have time to watch it, it is a song about a zombie who is trying to persuade his next victim to stop resisting and allow him to eat his brains. It’s all about compromise. While it sounds like it would be a horrible song it’s actually quite pleasant to listen to.
The zombie author of the song is clearly a master of rhetoric and the writing of up-beat poppy 1-4-5 chord progression radio smash hits. If you listen to the song, you will see that the zombie is clearly just an all-around nice and reasonable guy. In my opinion, the song is both better written and more comforting to listen to then anything on the current top 40 chart.
I don’t ever want to have my brains eaten by a zombie, but if I ever did, it would be by this zombie. He just seems like a decent and respectable undead guy; by far more classy then any other zombies I’ve come across! I do consider myself a bit of a connoisseur of zombies having killed literally thousands of them on my Xbox.
While listening to the song, I had a realization: If Barack Obama where to become a zombie, this would be his song.
I, like many Americans, have a sort of love-hate relationship with our current president. That is, when I hear him talk, I love him. However, when I see the actions he’s taking, I almost always hate them. He reminds me of the zombie from the song. An all-around well-meaning, nice guy, who unfortunately wants to eat my brains.
When Obama got reelected, I, like most rational middle-of-the-road Americans really wasn’t too concerned. Within two months, he launched a media – fortified all out blitz campaign to demonize law-abiding gun owners with the ultimate objective, many believe, of the disarmament of America.
I think he may really be a zombie. Think about it, if you wanted to go around eating all the brains in America, wouldn’t disarming your potential victims be the first action you would want to take? Based on personal experience, I know for a fact that an exercise of Second Amendment rights is an absolute necessity when defending yourself from the zombie apocalypse. I never wanted to see a communist zombie in the White House, but if I did, my first choice would be Barack Hussein Obama.
My hypothesis: like the voice in the song “Re: Your Brains”, Barack Obama is a zombie who is also a Jedi of rhetoric. While I do really want to compromise, I don’t see any room for middle ground with an undead maniac who’s sole purpose in life is to eat brains, specifically, my brains. (Just when I thought I was being original and clever, I discovered that I am not the first to come up with this hypothesis; for extra credit, do a google image search for “Obama zombie” and see what you find. While I do sort of love-hate the guy, I respect the office of the president and think that these renditions cross the line. They are well done and worthy of a gander, just not a place on my blog.)
What is your alternative hypothesis?
