The Undead Return to Washington

Dark clouds heavy with rain scudded over the Washington Mall on a cold, windy morning in our nation's capital. It was two days after the 2012 elections, and Constitution and Independence Avenues appeared to be populated only by brown and yellow leaves skittering down the wide avenues towards the Capital Complex. Then, rising from the depths of metro stations and despair, Republican members of Congress shuffled towards their offices. Their slumped shoulders, loose hanging arms, red eyes, and halting walk told all we needed to know about their condition. They are the undead, come once again to feast on the brains of America's citizens, hoping to reanimate the life of the Party.
