What a morning

Normally makes me grin, but it's hard to move those facial muscles when you've got both Hilary Clinton and Jack Thompson making statements about video games being the fifth column that will bring down our youth. Dear god, they're coming from all sides now. Democrats might try to use this to make their morality points seem higher - meaning the lunatic fringe for this issue could form a complete circle.

Course, these people might be seriously underestimating gamers. Jack Thompson has long shown that he thinks gamers aren't victims - but mindless idiots ... a fact he recently proved again when people tried to have a rational conversation with him. And Hilary probably hasn't looked at the demographic numbers on males 20-35 who will gladly let her political career die for making inane comments about their favorite games.
