True. The public will demand a death certificate to prove Zombie Reagan was in fact dead, though. Deathers and such.

Hey, maybe you should try that thing Chie was talking about.

No, he entered the Senate as a living being, then was merely grandfathered in as a zombie.

Because again, there are no laws specifically prohibiting a zombie from seeking re-election.
About this, is there something inherent in long-held jobs that makes it possible to continue holding them as a zombie? In Thurmond's case, he held his Senate seat for the longest time, then dropped dead soon after his final term ended; presumably whatever was keeping him from truly dying was cancelled at that point. (See also: Robert Byrd, Bear Bryant.)

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.

If zombies can be grandfathered in, why haven't assassinated presidents continued to serve out their terms? Lincoln and Kennedy were killed by headshots, so that rules them out, but McKinley and Garfield would have made perfectly good zombie presidents. Was it due to zombie prejudice, or simply a lack of zombie creating technology?

What about animatronic presidents?

I was speaking idiomatically.

An animatronic president would have to be controlled by another person (presumably living). That automatically disqualifies them, unless we're talking about Chucky, or some other kind of possessed doll/object.

What kind of toxic man-thing is happening now?

And, exactly, military officials are promoted based on experience and proven track records.
Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha... you came home with that one.

It's not about experience, it's about who gives the best head. You've never spent much time around the military have you? It's all about politics, it's much more "in-house" than civil leadership, though.

On a more serious note: there are reasons that military leaders aren't elected-- far beyond "qualifications"-- the military is the world's oldest fraternity, no matter what country one is referring to. We're not going to take orders from someone who isn't "one of us."

Civil leadership is elective because, in theory, it gives us the freedom to choose officials and representatives that best share our ideology in how things should be run. As far as someone needing a lot of experience to do one position or another, it's not necessarily true, because every secretariat, senator, elected leader, board chairman or what-have-you has a staff of people that actually do the job. These people are the real, flesh and blood, "government." You should look into how many civil service people your local municipality employs, then think of that on a state and federal scale.

A lot of them have been doing the job for a long time, they may, in many cases become advisors to the President, Governor, Mayor, Senator, et cetera. That's why you don't need a leader with as many qualifications or broad experience as you would from someone who is a military chief of staff.

What, you don't want my bikini-clad body?
