Senator Kirk: “America might get overrun with zombies”

August 26, 2014

WAND17: “A Child and a Senator Strike Up an Unexpected Friendship After Suffering Similar Strokes” quotes U.S. Senator Mark Kirk, Republican, junior Senator from Illinois:

“I was playing one zombie game to help me with my hand eye coordination between me and the computer,” said Kirk. “And I would always joke with him that if he didn’t get better at the zombie game, that America might get overrun with zombies.”

Senator Kirk previously (in 2012) suffered a paralyzing stroke and this “zombie” quote was about conversations with a now-12-year-old named Jackson Cunningham who is also recovering from a stroke. Best wishes to both on their recovery.

See also the AP version of this story from the end of last year: “Ill. boy, US senator inspire fellow stroke victims” by Kerry Lester:

The two often talk about zombies, video games and Kirk’s ferocious black cat, Cleopatra.
