Joss Whedon is probably best known for creating “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel” and “The Avengers.” He’s also an ardent supporter of the zombie apocalypse, whether it be the fast moving zombies of “28 Days Later” or the slow, stubborn zombies of “Night Of The Living Dead.” Either way, Joss wants more zombies. And that’s why he supports Mitt Romney for president. Joss believes Romney will bring on the zombpocalypse faster than President Obama. What’s your take? Which candidate is more likely to bring on the zombies? [Buzzfeed]
‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”
Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.
Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

Still stumped on what to dress up as this Halloween? Why not pick something timely and politically witty? Created by a woman (whaaaaaat?) this handy Binder Full of Women costume allows you to envelope yourself or a woman you know in a handy Trapper Keeper-like device. Bind yourself and others in this larger-than-life binder, that includes velcro closures and is made of lightweight foamcore. I’m thinking of decorating my binder full of women in Lisa Frank-style rainbows, unicorns and pegusi (that’s what you call more than one pegasus, right?), and filling my binder with some of my fave ladies — women like Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer or whatever. How would you fill your binder? [$22.99, Binder Full Of Women Costume]
