The Ghost Breakers

No, that is not a typo.  It is Ghost Breakers, not Ghostbusters.  'The Ghost Breakers' is a 1940 movie that stars Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard.  I rented it after reading some of its one-liners in a book I was reading.

Anyway, Bob is on his way to a haunted castle in Cuba.  He hears there is a zombie there and asks a Cuban what a zombie is.  The reply is 'a zombie has no will of his own and you see them sometimes walking around blindly with dead eyes, following orders and not knowing what they do, not caring'.  Hope replies, 'You mean like Democrats?'

OK.  So not everyone in the movie audience probably thought it was funny.  But unless the folks in Lansing do some serious discussing of these new tax proposals in the Governor's budget, the description  might fit both parties.
