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.

prh99MechaTama: I don't know his motive for asking, he could be just trying to cause trouble. If not he waited too long and in either case should just give up.02/01/2015 - 1:39pm
MonteIf you don't like someone's commentary; simply ignore them. Do not give them ANY kind of attention; even negative attention gives them traffic. If they're wrong and their opinions cant stand on their own merits, they will simply fade away into obscurity.02/01/2015 - 1:17pm
IanCBut of course no one on the GG side has been harassed. Nope. None at all. BS. Both sides are acting like children. No, I take that back, CHILDREN are better behaved.02/01/2015 - 12:25pm
MechaTama31Of course, that advice is only really useful if you are one of the harassers...02/01/2015 - 11:50am
prh99Maybe it's time to rethink your strategy if your enemy doesn't have to make stuff up.02/01/2015 - 5:01am
prh99Also if you don't like someone, harassment and scandals will only get them more attention. Zoe Quinn would probably not be as well known if not for various harassers.02/01/2015 - 5:00am
prh99Personally, I just clicked the three vertical dots the first YouTube recommended one, haven't seen one since. Too bad I can't get rid of Pewdiepie video recommendations that easily.02/01/2015 - 3:19am
prh99Just don't watch the videos, who cares what she does or doesn't do. If her audience likes it so be, if they think she's doing something she shouldn't they'll stop watching.02/01/2015 - 3:14am

Andrew EisenThank goodness the Shout box now goes back 100 shouts, eh folks?01/31/2015 - 7:10pm
Wonderkarpyouve said youre stuff. I gave you a point on one thing.01/31/2015 - 7:04pm
Andrew EisenNo, they're facts. Not beliefs. Not opinions. Facts. Do I need to list them all for you again? I'm happy to oblige.01/31/2015 - 7:02pm
Andrew EisenAnd I have seen no evidence (and would find it very hard to believe) that her fans and funders, even the most radical, would be the ones perpetuating that nonsense.01/31/2015 - 7:01pm
Wonderkarpabout as right as Glenn Beck is about the gays, man. Its all your beliefs and opinions.01/31/2015 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenI didn't say you did. And this talking head is still right about everything he's said so far.01/31/2015 - 6:58pm
Andrew EisenAlso, considering the number of non profits that merchandise, I'm going to guess you're wrong on that one too but I don't really know as it's not my area of expertise.01/31/2015 - 6:58pm
