hubiestubert: Spaced Lion: Damn straight you're going to see real fear when the dead walk the earth.

How in the Hells did I miss her dying? Seriously. I thought she'd been sort of quiet as of late...


Might be the reason the Derp in Texas has gone to 11.  Though if I had to name someone to come back from the dead to tell the Republicans to knock this shiat off she'd be #2 on the list right after Jesus.

Car_Ramrod: 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?


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.

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.

Captain Dan: vernonFL: Republicans are REALLY afraid of Hillary Clinton. Scared shiatless.

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.

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.

pudding7: 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.


Both sides are bad, huh?

Pocket Ninja: 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.


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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Magneto doesn't belong on that list because he's not strictly a villain. More of an anti-hero.

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.

Apocalypse and Luthor(ewwww DC) are just out and out evil. There are no redeeming qualities.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Ah. Well, I actually don't think he's a villain either...:p

Thanks! I'll look it up.

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!


Every time I try to load a saved game it says there's no memory :(

BuckTurgidson: 2wolves: vernonFL: Republicans are REALLY afraid of Hillary Clinton. Scared shiatless.

Fear drives their anger, anger drives their hatred, hatred drives their suffering.


Yes, Master Yoda.

spongeboob: pudding7: 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.

Both sides are bad, huh?


There are idiots on both sides.  I think the GOP is disgusting enough on their own, I don't need to further condemn them based on the actions of groups or people they have no control over.

James!: Pocket Ninja: 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.

After she has the baby you get to slap it around.


Is it a slutty welfare baby?

PsiChick: 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.

/And Magneto had PTSD, he shouldn't be on that list.


I think listing ANY fictional characters as evidence that smart people can be evil was a bad idea.

/Why not list Reed Richards, Sherlock Holmes, Spock, and Encyclopedia Brown as evidence that smart people are always good?
//Oh right, 'cause that's just as silly.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: I really really really really really REALLY hope Hillary doesn't run.  Why?  Because the gopers are so busy being afraid of her and anything remotely connected to her, they will be even less prepared for whomever is nominated.


OK..... President Biden, it is, then!

/imagine the number Rightie strokes and aneurisms that would trigger.
//not that I have a problem with that.
