Joss Whedon ’87 “Endorses” Romney, Sort Of

Get ready for the Internet to not get sarcasm at all.

Still undecided for the election? After a week that included highly anticipated candidate endorsements from the New Yorker (Obama), the New York Times (Obama), and Brown’s Blog Daily Herald (Matt Romney), Buffy creator and official nerd-in-chief Joss Whedon ’87 is throwing his hat in the ring. He wants you to vote Romney. Sort of.

According to Whedon, the Massachusetts governor is the candidate “with the vision and determination to cut through business-as-usual politics and finally put this country back back on the path to the zombie apocalypse.” (Speaking of apocalyptic scenarios, Sandy seems to have beaten Romney to the punch. But I digress.)
