All Kinds of Blood-suckers

Sam is a friend at work, and I usually stop in to catch up with him every week or so. Today the topic was the Stephen King "Salem's Lot" TV movie remake that TNT did. Apparently it was bad.

"People said the problem was that their vampires were too normal, to coherent and reasoning," said Sam, "so they'd talk to their victims a lot, saying 'look, it's still the same old me, I'm just a vampire now,'"

"Conversationally, Kind of like they're confessing that they've switched political parties or something?" I asked.

"Right"

"I see. I guess becoming a vampire IS rather like becoming a Republican: 'I'm still your uncle, only now I sustain myself on the blood of others'? Works both ways."
