Oh wow.

An old white Republican and a self righteous hipster democrat. Yep this election is TOTALLY different.

The guy who does that comic used to be a staff member on this website....

 

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Seems like according to this that perhaps the last game McCain played would be Pac Man, which is still newer than the last game Obama has said he played with Pong. >_>

 

Either that or it's just the last game McCain heard of. <_<

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Shouldn't Obama be asking where the ball and paddles are?

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

 Yeah, and asking where the quarters go! McCain's comment should have been more along the lines of "Where are the flippers at? TILT!"

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Well, I believe they're using videogames as a metaphor for underachi... I mean, as a metaphor for being in touch with what's going on.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

I see wat you did there...

Also, I think most politicians are 'out of touch' with what's going on.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

From the linked website

"The spin of his campaign is that polls don’t matter and things are “more or less tied,” but really, is there any hope at this point?"

If McCain actually wins this thing, there's going to be a major backlash and investigation into the republicans. The numbers already showed some suspicious things in 2004, but the race was closer then. If the GOP pull a win here.... woah!

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

There is absolutely no connection to the fact gas prices are plummeting right before a Republican needs a big win.   please keep your tinfoil hats on and look the other way.

Here are we -- and yonder yawns the universe.

Nope, it is about supply and demand.  Oil prices rose on demand.  They are plummeting because people have lost lots of money in the global economic crisis and cutting back on their trips, holidays, getting more fuel efficient cars etc and so oil has had to drop.

Additionally, oil prices rose exceptionally high because of speculative investment.  People were buying up oil to sell at a higher price and it's a self fulfilling proficy.  Once they start to hit a peak and people start to sell, the speculators quickly sell up all their stock and the price comes tumbling down again.  In reality, the price should have settled at about $100/barrel but it coincided with the banking troubles and financial recession and so just kept on going.

The notion it was something to do with a conspiracy theory or Republicans trying to win an election is hillarious.

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

What does GOP stand for?

Re: Webcomic: Obama, McCain & Guitar Hero

Grand Old Party.

Which is odd, consdidering that the Republican Party is newer than the Democrat Party.


If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

SleakerAlthough.. I don't think it hurts anyone if kids think the report is true :P09/01/2014 - 3:26am
Sleakerand just for future reference. National Reports is a fake news site, they decided to remove their disclaimers a while back apparently...09/01/2014 - 3:25am
Thomas RiordanDon't feel bad. I posted the same thing last night and deleted it once I realized it wasn't real.08/31/2014 - 11:13pm
E. Zachary KnightAh. The report actually read serious to me. Oh well. At least it didn't happen.08/31/2014 - 7:46pm
ConsterAlthough apparently someone who was in a swatting ring in Texas took a plea for up to 5 years in July.08/31/2014 - 7:14pm
ConsterProbably because it's a satire site.08/31/2014 - 7:13pm
E. Zachary KnightI agree that the kid should be punished, but the charge and sentence seem a bit overboard to me. http://nationalreport.net/15-year-old-swatted-domestic-terrorism/08/31/2014 - 6:56pm

IanCBroke my EA boycott to pick up Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. Loving it. Still hate EA though. But i like Popcap. Gah.08/30/2014 - 6:01am

AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSaint's Row: Gat Out of Hell was just announced for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One making it the 150th game For Everything But Wii U! Congratulations Deep Silver!08/29/2014 - 3:49pm
