Finally got around to seeing, 'Land of the Dead;'

It's OK, for a zombie movie (my favorites are 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Fido'), but considering it's from George Romero...

A critique of the film is not my reason for posting though.

Dennis Hopper plays the anti-hero.

He is a psychopathic; greedy, runs all the vice in 'his' city, class A bigot and all around bad guy.

Now I don't know about any of you, but aren't these the qualities that make for a 'card carrying' Republican?

Now I seem to remember that Mr. Hopper underwent a political transformation before he died; he 'converted' to a Republican.

So, for what it's worth, Dennis was playing a character that he would have greatly loved and admired; Cheney, Reagan, Bush, etc...

1. He was a Republican, but voted for Obama in 2008...

Because of Sarah Palin.

I didn't much like Land of the Dead. It was okay - but one of the weakest of the series.

2. Rumsfeld.

Hopper said he modeled his performance on Donald Rumsfeld.
