Remember, any racism or misogyny you infer from any of the GOP or their affiliates' actions is purely a product of your own imagination, and shows that you are truly the bigoted one.

They've already announced their followup game, in which you have to use the arrow keys to block flying birth control pills from getting in Sandra Fluke's mouth. If you succeed for a long enough time, she becomes impregnated, and then the game shifts to one where you have to block her path as she makes her way to an abortion clinic.

I long since stopped caring what all the surrogates do.  If it's not the actual GOP or DNC, then I don't care.  There are idiots and morons on both sides of the aisle.  I don't hold Rance Preibus responsible for stupid shiat some backwater PAC does, nor do I hold the DNC responsible for some retarded PR move by a Democrat City Council person in Berkley.

There's plenty of retarded stuff that the actual candidates, parties, and elected politicians do.  We need to keep score with all their supporters as well.

Of course not. Once she has the baby you ignore it, and refuse to support the mother. It's her fault, after all.

I would imagine if a similar "game" depicting Sarah Palin had been out there during the 2008 campaign, the GOP would have been okay with it and Fox News would not have dedicated 40% of its broadcast day fretting about it.

One of my former co-workers started ranting that Hilary Clinton was EEEVIL, EEEVIL.  She was so over the top about it I thought she was kidding and I started laughing.  Nope, she was serious, and started getting even madder about it.  I have no idea what drives that hate and fear other than the noise machine.

In other events, it must be really sad to have to be told what to think.

Well, I am afraid of her, but for good reason I think.  She'd probably be a bad-to-awful president.

As president she would probably continue the civil liberties abuses of the Bush/Obama years, the cronyism of the Clinton/Bush years, and the foreign policy of the Bush years (she's hawkish on Syria).

Her overarching goal, more than any ideological/patriotic/civic mission, is power.  She lacks morals, principles, empathy, or humanity - she's bad at even faking them.

The GOP needs games that are more patriotic. Like a game where you play as the GOP patron saint, Ronald Reagan. You would be able to walk left or right, depending on what arrow button you pressed, but the screen would constantly be moving rightward so if you go too far to the left, you will fall off the screen and die. You have to keep going right in order to survive. Ever, ever rightward. There would be an American flag at the end that you have to jump to (the higher you touch the flagpole, the more points you get) whereupon the Reagan character drags down the flag and replaces it with a Confederate flag, signaling the end of the level.

Throughout the levels there would be pipes, dangerous plants, weapons for Reagan to use and hamburgers that Reagan can eat to grow bigger. You can sell weapons you find for more points, but if you do that, then enemies in future levels will have the weapons you sold, so be careful!

I think there is a game similar to this that the GOP can just have some Chinese sweatshop slaves reverse-engineer and use it as a base for this new game. That would make development a lot easier for them.

Which will make their sudden need to awkwardly pivot when the primaries start if Hillary doesn't announce just HILARIOUS. You know the old saying though... Never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake. I think if she really has no intentions of running that she and the DNC should make sure drop hints that she is, right up until the primaries. Let the GOP run around like a chicken with their head cut off fighting a phantom and spending their cash and manpower doing it.

Not fear. Ire.

Since Hillary got involved with the process beside her husband, and health care, folks have been upset with her. For not simply being a token that waved and smiled. This isn't fear, it's about her not knowing her place as a First Lady, and folks have been set to pimp slap her back into place since 1993. This is 20 years of pent up rage, and worse, part of that rage is she wasn't the candidate in 2008. When she failed to get the nomination, about 15 years of rage was denied outlet, and Obama isn't just getting ire for daring to President While Black, he's also daring to NOT give folks Hillary on a platter, which is what folks have been waiting to do for these 20 years now.

It's NOT fear. It's rage. It's rage denied. Rage that has festered for 20 years, and it's just gotten deeper, more vile, and much more personal, and this is just the tip of the iceberg for what folks have been wanting to unleash on Hillary as a candidate. It will only get worse, it will only get more personal, and it will work on a certain demographic, and it will turn another few against them. Especially after the "strong Conservative woman" rhetoric that folks have quailed upon when folks have turned on legitimately stupid and inept and incapable candidates like Palin and Bachmann.

The woman they fear? Ann Richards. She ever gets her dander up to run again, then you are going to see real fear. Hillary just inspires rage, and worse, it's a rage that's been denied and festered a bit. It does drive folks to do some damn stoopid crap, but let's not confuse the two.

You don't get it.

I can stand being insulted.  Comes with the territory.  Offer a political opinion, some people will disagree rudely.  Fine.

But let's aspire to a higher standard of insult.  Picking on retarded people, or homosexuals, or other vulnerable groups, by using them as the punchline to an insult, ceased being edgy by around 7th/8th grade, and ceased being morally defensible a long time before that.

hubiestubert: Dog Welder: 2wolves: vernonFL: Republicans are REALLY afraid of Hillary Clinton. Scared shiatless.

Fear drives their hatred.

Fear will keep the local derpers in line.  Fear of this candidate.

Not fear. Ire.

Since Hillary got involved with the process beside her husband, and health care, folks have been upset with her. For not simply being a token that waved and smiled. This isn't fear, it's about her not knowing her place as a First Lady, and folks have been set to pimp slap her back into place since 1993. This is 20 years of pent up rage, and worse, part of that rage is she wasn't the candidate in 2008. When she failed to get the nomination, about 15 years of rage was denied outlet, and Obama isn't just getting ire for daring to President While Black, he's also daring to NOT give folks Hillary on a platter, which is what folks have been waiting to do for these 20 years now.

It's NOT fear. It's rage. It's rage denied. Rage that has festered for 20 years, and it's just gotten deeper, more vile, and much more personal, and this is just the tip of the iceberg for what folks have been wanting to unleash on Hillary as a candidate. It will only get worse, it will only get more personal, and it will work on a certain demographic, and it will turn another few against them. Especially after the "strong Conservative woman" rhetoric that folks have quailed upon when folks have turned on legitimately stupid and inept and incapable candidates like Palin and Bachmann.

The woman they fear? Ann Richards. She ever gets her dander up to run again, then you are going to see real fear. Hillary just inspires rage, and worse, it's a rage that's been denied and festered a bit. It does drive folks to do some damn stoopid crap, but let's not confuse the two.

Wellon Dowd: Republicans are REALLY afraid of everything. Scared shiatless.


I've always had this view of Republicans...well, conservatives as..ok, metaphor time.

So the conservatives are like a child, home alone. Parents are out. While home alone, they start to fear there is a MONSTER IN THE BASEMENT!!(basically, any non-WASP) Now, to prevent the monster from getting out of the basement, they slap all sorts of locks and deadbolts on the door(poll taxes, anti-sodomy, anti-abortion, etc) because if the monster gets out, it will DESTROY AMERICA!!!!!

By now, the parents of the child(pretty much the rest of the country) show up, and explains to the child that the monster is actually some oppressed people who just want to come out of the basement and be treated as equals. The parents begin to take off the deadbolts and locks(ie DOMA overturned), the child begins to flail more and more wildly, absolutely terrified that the monster is going to get out and DESTROY EVERYTHING. Meanwhile, the parents are patiently continuing to try to explain that nothing will happen, but any action they perform is dismissed as being in league with the monster, and so the parents are added to the list of TERRIBLE EVIL THINGS. The child frantically begins trying to put those deadbolts and locks back on, but meanwhile those people in the basement start to get pissed off and start pushing back.

Now the child starts to really fear. After all that time of keeping in the basement, the child is terrified of what the people in the basement will do if they get free. The anti-people-in-the-basement actions get crazier and wilder, and at the same time the child says he just wants to keep the "monster" in the basement for everyone's protection. Meanwhile, the parents and the "monster" are getting tired of this shiat, and are about ready to send the child to its room to think about what its done.

Of course, through the glory of self-victimization, the child is now blaming everything that went wrong in its life on its parents and the "monster", even though no harm has actually been caused.

So..yea. That's my take on it.

Well, I dunno - there *IS* precedent.  A while back, in Missouri, Mel Carnahan and John Ashcroft were running against each other.  Mel died shortly before the election, and there was not enough time to change the ballots.  The good voters of Missouri *knew* Mel was dead, but they were so dismayed at the thought of electing John Ashcroft, that they voted in the dead guy.  My best bud voted for the dead guy.

/Always thought Ashcroft was a low-down, lying, unprincipled sack of shiat when he was Dubya's AG, but then I heard about him refusing to go along with the warrantless wiretap crap, which Gonzalez was only too happy to rubber-stamp.  Huh.  I guess people *can* surprise you...  Still think he was a sack of shiat, but nice to know that he had a spine and could draw the line *somewhere*.

My point is that to say someone lacks humanity is quite the charge, and gives me the idea that you're not looking at the situation with a clear head; that you're looking at it through some kind of anger that distorts your views. What has she done that deserves that level of disdain?

All I'll say is I plan on teaching my Down syndrome-capable niece to make fun of idiots.

I'm in the same boat.  I'd like to vote in another Republican president, but I won't do it while the Tea Party has as much influence as they currently do.  Just take a look at what Texas, Kansas, Ohio and North Carolina state legislatures are doing and then imagine that on a national scale.  In two short years they could set us back 50 years.

No harm, no foul.

At this point I'm so disgusted by anything that even hints at being republican, I'll hit it with a stick.  The democrats of today are the republicans I voted for years ago. I won't be a party in name only.  Just because the registry says republican, no way would I consider myself one now.  And again the sad fact is I haven't changed my philosophies.  The party however, has run off a cliff, raped virgins, burned homeless shelters, and then caught fire.  Except they are attempting to put out the fire by building a base with napalm.

I don't think my view is distorted, although admittedly if it were I probably wouldn't recognize it.  My dislike for Hillary Clinton is based on her long track record of lying and manipulating people, always with the goal of accumulating power.  Off the top of my head:

1. Personally enriching herself during Bill's tenure as governor of Arkansas by trading on insider information.

2. Repeatedly playing the race card against Obama in 2008.  According to the book "Game Change," she wanted to make a bigger deal of Obama's drug use before campaign aides dissuaded her.  The dirty ads she ran anyway (Bill Ayers, Reverend Wright) were disgusting, and I hated it equally when the Republicans ran those attacks.

3. Lying about sniper fire.  Give me a farking break.

4. Sticking in a faithless, loveless marriage, probably (almost certainly) because of political advantage.

5. Opportunistically supporting the Iraq War when it was popular, denouncing it when it wasn't, and now supporting the same terrible idea in Syria.

6. Embracing the divisive tactics that are the absolute worst feature of politics, and that drive away thousands of well-intentioned and idealistic people from public service.

7. Not even believing her own divisive attacks.  She's closer to a centrist than a radical.  It's entirely cynical.
 
2013-08-06 02:44:54 PM
Considering the public perception of the GOP's policies towards women in general, whether real or percieved; I do not think having a video game that even gives off the percieved endorsement of violence towards women is not a smart decision. Something like hitting her with pies with her dressed as a clown(great symbolism too) or her in a virtual dunking booth with the caption "Hilliary is all wet!" would have the same effect without the percieved violent overtones.

But that has always been the problem with conservative political humor. It's based on making you mad at the target rather than laugh at the actions of the target. If the audience doesn't share the level of anger at the target for a "frame of reference"; rather than being funny the joke falls flat, comming across as petty and vindictive.  When it comes to humor, conservatives have the delivery of John Rocker making fun of NYC.

Well, I am afraid of her, but for good reason I think.  She'd probably be a bad-to-awful president.

As president she would probably continue the civil liberties abuses of the Bush/Obama years, the cronyism of the Clinton/Bush years, and the foreign policy of the Bush years (she's hawkish on Syria).

Her overarching goal, more than any ideological/patriotic/civic mission, is power.  She lacks morals, principles, empathy, or humanity - she's bad at even faking them.

/Hillary 2016: Mitt Romney was too warm and caring


Eh, she reads as pretty power-hungry to me, but she also reads as intelligent enough to realize the general welfare of the nation = GOOD DAMN PLAN.

If you succeed for a long enough time, she becomes impregnated, and then the game shifts to one where you have to block her path as she makes her way to an abortion clinic.


While blocking her from the abortion clinic you have to herd her into a kitchen, steal her shoes, and have her make you a sandwich for the win.

I'm not trying to defend (most of) that, but it's all basic political maneuvering, nothing special. Either you classify an extremely large number of people as "lacking humanity", or you're being extra tough on her.

When was the last time she even did anything political? She was too busy being a pretty good Sec of State for 4 years.

Car_Ramrod: I'm not trying to defend (most of) that, but it's all basic political maneuvering, nothing special. Either you classify an extremely large number of people as "lacking humanity", or you're being extra tough on her.


It's not "basic politics"; it's politics at its worst and most demagogic.  I don't have to accept that as the new normal, and I won't.

As for your second point, yes, I do think that a very large number of politicians lack basic humanity.  The rhetoric that's become common in political campaigns is just repellent.

Captain Dan: PsiChick: Seriously, you know what characterizes supervillains? Not lack of humanity.  Sheer. F*cking. Stupidity. Be a supervillain, you get pummeled. Be a superhero, you get  everything you want.

I disagree completely.  Being smart is great, but it's no guarantee that one will act altruistically.  Many of history's worst people were intelligent.  Also, many of comic history's worst villains (Magneto!  Apocalypse!  Doctor Doom!  Lex Luthor!).

Being dumb is nothing to be proud of, but I'd sooner cheer for a dumb, compassionate, and kind person than a smart, cynical, self-absorbed one.


The Republican Party is a prime example of dumb, compassionate, and kind--because they can't think things through logically, they  honestly don't realize how cruel they're being. Hilary's ideas have been at best decent.

coeyagi: You can't vote Republican then.  They are all of the dumb without any of the compassionate and kind.


I wouldn't vote for any Republican who I thought was either dumb or unkind.  When that type of Republican has been on the ballot, I've voted against them.

I vote for Republicans who display intelligence, integrity, and compassion.  I think Jon Huntsman would be a good president.  Mitch Daniels too.  Mitt Romney could have been, but only if he were free to be himself (a pragmatic technocrat) instead of the right-wing caricature he ran as.

Neither does Dr. Doom. Besides being sort of like Magneto -more anti-hero than villain - in every "What if..?" that involves Dr. Doom taking over the world, he turns it into a literal utopia. No hunger, no poverty, etc.

While blocking her from the abortion clinic you have to herd her into a kitchen, steal her shoes, and have her make you a sandwich for the win.

Well, no, in most continuities Magneto has a few moments of pure dickheadedness--he crosses lines that didn't need to be crossed, either subtly, like screwing over Rogue in the movies, or with leaps and bounds, like what he does in Ultimate. But his heel-turn moment is  always triggered by memories of the Holocaust. That's PTSD.

I don't know about the others, but there's a line between 'evil' and 'mentally ill'.

You don't get it.

I can stand being insulted.  Comes with the territory.  Offer a political opinion, some people will disagree rudely.  Fine.

But let's aspire to a higher standard of insult.  Picking on retarded people, or homosexuals, or other vulnerable groups, by using them as the punchline to an insult, ceased being edgy by around 7th/8th grade, and ceased being morally defensible a long time before that.

To be clear though, Magneto's backstory was a retcon added 20 years after he had been created and after it had been established that he was an unrepentant terrorist and war criminal. Kind of an insult to Holocaust survivors in my opinion but I never did "get" Claremont.

Movies do not count as a legit example. Sorry, but I'm a purist, and there are so many things wrong with the movies, they made my head asplode.

Anyway, his "good" is not always triggered by those memories. In some cases, it is the death(real or percieved) of Xavier, like happens in Age of Apocalyspe and a few other alternate time lines. Sometimes it's because the Earth is threatened, and sometimes there's no real reason given. Sometimes it's out of respect for Xavier.

I used to be a purist until I realized that the movies actually add a lot to the characters, not in the least having some amount of body language for your own mental characters. So I just use what works.

Bolded- exactly why I say he's not a villain

Underlined - I think Age of Apocalypse is available online for free. If I can dig up a link I'll post it or send it your way. It's a fascinating one, and has a lot of flips from the standard universe. The basic premise is Apocalypse rises early and Xavier ends up being killed. Apocalypse takes over, and Magneto ends up forming the X-Men to stop him. I don't want to spoil it for you, as it's an awesome read. The "What if..?" series is also (mostly) fascinating, but there's a lot, and some are more difficult to find. Also, relatively certain you could find descriptions of them online if you look.

Sock Ruh Tease: The GOP needs games that are more patriotic. Like a game where you play as the GOP patron saint, Ronald Reagan. You would be able to walk left or right, depending on what arrow button you pressed, but the screen would constantly be moving rightward so if you go too far to the left, you will fall off the screen and die. You have to keep going right in order to survive. Ever, ever rightward. There would be an American flag at the end that you have to jump to (the higher you touch the flagpole, the more points you get) whereupon the Reagan character drags down the flag and replaces it with a Confederate flag, signaling the end of the level.

Throughout the levels there would be pipes, dangerous plants, weapons for Reagan to use and hamburgers that Reagan can eat to grow bigger. You can sell weapons you find for more points, but if you do that, then enemies in future levels will have the weapons you sold, so be careful!
