Santorum Makes a Horror Film

Posted By on Wed, Mar 28, 2012 at 11:23 AM

Rick Santorum's campaign released a new web video this week that looks far more like a low-budget horror film than it does a campaign ad.

It features a dark montage of scenes from a post-apocalyptic small town. This town's name—Obamaville—is spelled out in fonts that look like they're straight out of a classic zombie film.

It should also be pointed out that, in addition to being bizarre and somewhat hysterical, the video is unlisted on YouTube, meaning you have to have a link to find it. Which is probably because if it were seen by the general public, it would be rightly outed as the point in presidential politics where The Fonz lands back in the water after jumping over a shark on waterskis ... and then immediately jumps another.

This is exactly the sort of thing Aaron Sorkin was writing about in the monologue climax of his film The American President.
