Virginia’s Loudoun County Republican Committee sent Washington politicos into an uproar today with a pretty gruesome and provocative email depicting President Obama as a zombie with a bullet in his head.
The email, first posted by the Virginia political blog, Too Conservative, invites supporters to the county’s Republican Halloween parade, and also features some other graphic images of Democrats, including a deformed-looking Nancy Pelosi and what appears to be some Occupy Wall Street zombies.
Virginia Democrats AND Republicans were up in arms over the images, which are admittedly over the top, with the state Republican chairman telling the Washington Post that the Virginia GOP condemns the email “in the strongest possible terms.” Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell called the graphic “shameful and offensive.”
Eventually, the Loudoun Republican Committee chairman was forced to apologise for portraying the president “as a victim of violent crime.”
