Ever want to put a stop to one of Glenn Beck’s crazy rants? How about giving Sarah Palin’s bus tour a flat tire?

If you answered yes to those questions, StarvingEyes just might have the video game for you with the advent of ‘Tea Party Zombies Must Die’-- much to the chagrin of conservative critics.

The Washington Post’s Elizabeth Flock gives us the run down on the gory first-person shooter.

“In ‘Tea Party Zombies Must Die,’ players are encourage to mow down conservative commentators, political figures and tea partiers, including Sarah Palin, Bill O'Reilly, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Michele Bachmann, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Glenn Beck, and the Koch Brothers. The graphic game puts tea partiers in Ku Klux Klan robes, places Fox commentators in what’s left of a post-apocalyptic office, and asks players to ‘grab your weapons and bash their rotten brains to bits!’”

The Pundit Press thinks played the game -- and isn't impressed.

“It was decidedly laggy and decidedly racist (there's a swastika visible within moments of starting your game). I know I shouldn't expect anything better from liberals, but when you're going to make something this offensive,you could at least try to pretend you're making a point.”

The video game’s release comes just days after controversial comments about the Tea Party from the New York Times’s Maureen Dowd and the President of the Teamsters Union, James Hoffa. Tim Farley told CNN’s Ali Veshi on Wednesday he believes the Tea Party has become an easy target in a digital world.

Farley: “But it’s in the age of viral video and what is this doing? It is getting noticed on shows like this this morning.”
Veshi: “Yeah, I suspect this is going to come back and bite them a little bit. It goes a little far. It’s more than just candidates, they’ve got some journalists on there.”
Farley: “I mean there’s blood and Uzis and swords, it’s some pretty graphic stuff.”

Big Hollywood’s Darin Miller wants to know why the Tea Party is getting attacked. Shouldn’t we put partisan politics aside and get our country back-- from ALL zombie invaders?

“A zombie invasion would bring America together, not divide us on party lines. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recognized zombies as a realistic potential (and non-partisan) threat that everyone should be ready for. StarvingEyes needs to get over their hatred and focus on the real enemy – actual zombies.”

But KPHO’s Pat McReynolds says all joking aside, this game hits close to home for people in Arizona.

“I’m on record as being angry when Sarah Palin put the crosshairs on Gabbie Giffords’s district, granted that was right after the shooting, so I have to be mad about this. And you don’t want to legislate for crazy people, but you don’t want anybody to get an idea to go out there and shoot celebrities.”
