Webgame Wednesday: Tea Party Zombies Must Die

I've been posting a lot of zombie games lately, but I'd be remiss if I didn't point out Tea Party Zombies Must Die. The title makes it pretty clear what the aim is here. In this first person shooter, you must navigate a series of settings--from campaign rallies to political headquarters to the Koch brothers' offices--dispatching shambling, brain-dead Sarah Palin worshipers. Needless to say, conservatives won't find this one the least bit funny. The graphics and gameplay are notably basic for this kind of thing, but taking a crowbar to a rotting corpse with an anti-Obama sign is oddly satisfying.
