Hillary the Panderer
Posted on Dec 7, 2006
Arianna Huffington takes Hillary Clinton to task for continuing her vote-hungry triangulating campaign against video game indecency. In case you missed it, last year Hillary got all bent out of shape over a hidden sex scene in a game called “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.” She didn’t seem to mind the initial release of the game, which allowed players (17 and older) to commit mass murder in graphic detail.
Hot on the heels of the release of the Iraq Study Group Report—and a day in which 10 U.S. servicemen were killed and at least 84 Iraqis were blown up or shot—prospective presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will join with Joe Lieberman to hold a press conference today at 3 pm ET to announce the launch of a television PSA campaign about… video game ratings.
Oh. My. God.
The violence in Iraq is becoming more savage by the minute—among the dead yesterday were 45 bullet-riddled corpses found in Baghdad, many of whom had been tortured before being executed—and Hillary is worried about video game violence? Are you kidding me?
Could she be any more politically tone deaf?
