Zombie Ronald Reagan is the reanimated corpse of the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan. He is now the current head of the GOP and leads all public opinion polls as the preferred Republican candidate for the Presidency in 2012. Zombie Reagan was brought back from the dead by GOP leaders in December, 2009 in a top secret facility in California. The $2.2 million procedure brought Reagan's corpse back to life after artificially creating a lightening storm that sent 1.21 jigawatts of electricity surging into the body. The money was raised by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the people of Cauliflower. Zombie Reagan is currently touring the country in early preparation for the Presidential Primaries in 2011 and 2012.
Death of a Legend, Rebirth of a Star
Ronald Reagan passed away on 5 June, 2004 to the mourning of the entire country. His body was interred at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Cauliflower. There it passed into a state of decomposition and decay, making the President's body nearly unrecognizable.
Michael Steele, former head of the GOP, concocted a plan to resurrect Reagan in order to re-unite the country's conservatives. Shortly before dawn on 2 December, 2009 the sound of jackhammers could be heard coming from the President's tomb. When local detectives arrived on the scene, there was a gigantic hole where the Presidents casket had been laid to rest. After nearly 5 years at rest, the President was on the move. The body was taken to a secret Republican laboratory in Santa Monica where it was resuscitated by means of having large amounts of electricity jump start the decayed heart. Along with other unspecified and deeply guarded secret methods (rumors are that scientists used tainted blood from psychotic rabbits), the President's body was reanimated, and Zombie Reagan was born.
New Political Career
Michael Steele announced with other prominent Republicans in a press conference that they had brought Ronald Reagan back from the grave on December 6, 2009. Zombie Reagan took the podium and delivered a 12 minute speech of grunts and moans which was greeted thereafter with a 6 minute standing ovation. The very next day Steele stepped down as head of the RNC and handed over the keys to Reagan's rotting corpse. Zombie Reagan has since appeared in multiple GOP sponsored ads of a generic nature, reaffirming Zombie Reagan's commitment to small town values. The fact that he has no mental capacity and tends to eat people is not a significant issue to the part faithful, and barely registers for independent voters, a huge plus for Zombie Reagan.
In order to convince more party leaders that he is indeed the man for the job in the GOP, Zombie Reagan invited Gov. Bobby Jindal and Florida Gov. Charlie Crist to an all night strategy session at a remote mountain retreat. The following day, Jindal returned to Louisiana and has since been singing Reagan's praises. To be fair though, the word "Reagan" is all he says now amidst grunts and moans. Strangely, Crist has not been seen since the retreat and Florida launched a nationwide search for the governor, fearing he had pulled a Mark Sanford and gone after some South American hottie. A youtube video purporting to show Crist feasting on an old lady's arm in Oklahoma has since surfaced. Florida has not commented on the matter.
Constitutional issues arise from the possibility of Zombie Reagan running for president since individuals are limited to two elected terms. The Democratic Party has already preemptively filed a lawsuit which has been expedited to the Supreme Court. in DNC v. Reagan, Democratic lawyers are expected to argue that Zombie Reagan and Ronald Reagan are the same individuals and thus Zombie Reagan would be barred from running for the Office of President. Republican lawyers however are expected to argue that Zombie Reagan, since he is simply the reanimated corpse of Ronald Reagan, is not in fact Ronald Reagan, but rather a "fresh new face of the political scene, ready to eat your heart out." The tentative court date is set for February, 2010. On the 5th of July 2010, Zombie-Reagan was found drunk in a parking Lott at 3:00am in the morning. At a recent press-conference, Zombie-Reagan claimed that Sarah Palin spiked his drink in an attempt to ruin him once and for-all. Palin pleaded innocent on the count that she was indeed giving birth.
