Crazed Anti-Obama Fantasies, In A Video Game

More

Wow. I clicked on one of those banner ads on the Drudge Report, which are usually right-wing but innocuous enough. This one, though, was for some crazed game called "The United States of Earth," a computer game that imagines an Obama coup that suspends civil liberties, sees Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh imprisoned and Cass Sunstein die. Sicko stuff. See it here.

Read a gamer mag's take on it here. Wow.

As one who covered nuttiness like the Jerry Falwell implication that Bill Clinton was involved in murders, I thought I'd lost my capacity to be shocked. Have you seen other things like this? Let me know.
