Tom Truex told the Miami Herald he wants to be the next chairman of the Broward Republican Executive Committee. Truex said, “I have managed to not get too embroiled in the factions in the county Republican party.” Um, yeah, guess not getting “too embroiled” is fancy lawyer talk for being silent since losing to Richard DeNapoli in 2010. But when it comes to zombies movies and Samuel L. Jackson, Truex is rarely silent. He posts regularly about the two topics in the movie review section of his website
Truex, the former mayor of Davie, managed to opine on hot button social issues like abortion and gay marriage. Funny, we don’t remember the Herald asking Mitch Ceasar and Cynthia Busch about those issues when they ran for Broward Democrat chairman. Perhaps they were smart enough to avoid such amateurish mistakes.
Truex, a regular applicant to the Judicial Nominating Committee, wants to sit on the Broward Bench. Let’s hope he doesn’t see the BREC chairmanship as a stepping stone to getting a black robe. After Rico Petrocelli tucked tail and ran, Truex posted his ideas of “What the Broward GOP Needs”. Truex wrote, “We can’t be switching the party Chair every year or two. We need to unite, and work toward the same common goals.” Darn those pesky bylaws that call for elections every two years!
Tom Truex is an unabashed lover of lousy zombie movies. He gave 5 star glowing reviews to incredibly low-rent horror movies like Autumn, Dead Set, Awake and The Dead. He vigorously defended the notion Samuel L. Jackson is the “top grossing actor of all time.” Who cares? Star Wars Episodes 1-3 stink!
But the “surveys” section over at tomtruex.com really takes the cake. One question asks, “how do you get most of your information about zombies?” Answers include, “the internet”, “word of mouth; friends, family members, co workers, police officers” and “school or trade groups”. Wow.
The “Top Twenty Movies of All Time” is dominated by, you guessed it, ZOMBIES! Choices included 28 Weeks Later, Day of the Dead, Re-Animator, 28 Days Later, Dawn of The Dead, Night of The Living Dead and Singin’ In The Rain ?!?!?
The answers for the “Good Americans” survey were George Washington, George W. Bush, Richard Nixon, Jefferson Davis (!), George Jefferson, Gilligan, Raymond Burr, Cher and THE HARDY BOYS?!?! We kid you not.
Want to know what’s really scary? The Hardy Boys were in third place behind Washington and Bush and just two votes ahead of Gilligan.
But in a surprise upset, zombies were behind Democrats and bird flu in the “Fears” poll.
Tom Truex wasn’t the answer to BREC’s problems in 2010. By the looks of it, he’s definitely not the answer in 2013.
Unless of course the zombie apocalypse starts in Broward.
