Conservatives in Virginia checked their email today and found an image of President Obama with a bullet through his head—courtesy of Loudon County's Republican committee. The image portrayed Obama as a zombie, with a bleeding hole in his forehead and part of his skull missing, the Washington Post reports. State party chair Pat Mullins responded by saying that "the disgusting image used today on a mass email has no place in our politics. Ever."
First revealed on the Too Conservative blog, the email also shows Nancy Pelosi with a deformed face and a bulging eye. "We are going to vanquish the zombies with clear thinking conservative principles and a truckload of Republican candy," the email says. With Mullins demanding an apology, Loudon County's party chair backpedaled heavily, calling the email "a light-hearted attempt to inject satire humor into the Halloween holiday. ... We deeply and sincerely apologize." (See which reality show Obama jokingly said reminds him of the GOP presidential primary race.)
