It's not often that you hear "zombies" and "politics" in the same sentence, but apparently there were some major issues keeping the two separate in the upcoming horror flick, World War Z!
In a recent interview, Brad Pitt, who stars in and produces the highly anticipated film, explained that they started shooting in hopes of exploring some new territory:

Don't adjust your browsers, dear readers — neither Facebook nor Twitter are broken!
You probably woke up to pink and red equal signs taking your social media outlets by storm this morning, but fear not because it's all for a totally awesome cause!!
The US Supreme Court spent Tuesday dragging its feet while listening to arguments for and against gay marriage, but there are millions of people who refused to let their voices go unheard!!
In an effort to bring awareness to the critically important battle to allow all couples who love each other the right to marry, the miracle workers over at the Human Rights Campaign are encouraging EVERYONE — us, you, your crazy uncle who doesn't like kids walking on their lawn — to replace their profile pics with these pink and red equal signs for these next few critical days.
This is pretty much the greatest idea since

By this point, you certainly know our stance!
We firmly believe deep down in the depths of our Zac Efron-encrusted hearts that marriage is a RIGHT that should be available to every single person alive!!
No couple in love should be denied the right to marry on the grounds of gender or sexual orientation!
But we aren't the only outspoken supporters of marriage equality, not even close!
Many of our favorite celebz took the good fight to Twitter today, see what they're saying …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

We remain forever optimistic that the world will wake up one day soon and realize all couples in love deserve the right to marry!
Sadly, that day wasn't today!
The Supreme Court heard arguments this morning on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage and California's super icky Proposition 8 law, which aims to suppress the rights of gay couples.
As thrilled as we are that the government is taking the discussion of equal rights seriously, there wasn't exactly any consensus on what to do between the Justices.
According to some experts, it looks like the courts may strike down Prop 8, but do so in a way which would NOT broadly affect any other states and not really further the cause of allowing ALL couples to marry regardless of sexual orientation.
In short, there seem to be

Stephen Colbert has gotten some amazing guests on The Colbert Report.
But there's one
white whale big fish very slim former president that he's never been able to wrangle- until now!
Bill Clinton is going to testify in front of the joint chiefs of the Colbert Nation in just two weeks! Stephen says:
"I am thrilled and honored to be interviewing President Clinton, and I assume he is aware this is happening."
Stephen is known for his journalistic integrity, asking the tough questions in order to find the truthiness!
We can't wait to see what he'll grill the ex-president about!
Impeachment, sex scandals, fracking- or are those all the same thing? LOLz!

We LOVE being able to bring you guys news like this!
In our political climate right now, we're getting more and more excited about the number of people holding government positions who are publicly supporting gay rights and gay marriage! To us, it's reflecting a shift in not only the beliefs within the offices held, but also a shift in how those beliefs are handled!
Being loud and proud about your view to support equality is the best way, because you're not cowering in fear of losing votes by standing up for your fellow humans! This is why we're applauding Senator Claire McCaskill!
Claire decided it was high time that she stand up for love, so she posted this on her tumblr:
