    The funny thing about the Burnout series is that the game encourages- no, is BUILT AROUND WRECKING YOUR RIDE IN INCREASINGLY SPECTACULAR FASHION. The McCain camp could use this as cannon fodder if they ever stop talking about Bill Ayers. Oh, and it appears that other EA games are doing this- Madden, Need for Speed ProStreet, FIFA... probably Spore, too... hell, I've seen some create-a-character Obama and McCain lookalikes in Soulcalibur IV, so let's count that, too. (Change you can believe in... like Ivy's gigantic milk jugs that are bigger than her freaking head...) Oh well, at least Midnight Club LA finally releases next week. I'll be getting the PS3 version, since it has trophies, so if you want to get run off of the road online, my PSN ID is tifosiotaku. (TTAC should do more racing video game news. I'm just sayin'...)

    …and Barack Obama served on the board of the Woods Fund (a charity). Again, so what? Calling the Woods Fund a "charity" is pretty disingenuous. Obama (and Ayers) used both the Woods Fund and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge to funnel millions of dollars to left wing and radical projects. The CAC was supposed to improve education, but $100 million was disbursed with no measurable improvements in Chicago's public schools. Under Obama's direction, however, CAC did give money to projects run by Ayers (Small Schools Project) etc., Wright (money given to Afrocentric charlatans) and Klonsky (another radical 60s leftover).

    During the 1980's McCain sat on the board of the U.S. Council for Foreign Relations. This is a Taiwan and South Korean funded ulta right organization that attracted anti-semite, Contra supporting terrorists. His group of subversives broke the U.S. prohibition on selling arms to Iran and providing funds and guns to the Nicaraguan Contra terrorists. Joh McCain = Terrorist. John "I hate the gooks, I will hate them as long as I live." McCain John "At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain John "Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because Janet Reno is her father." McCain John "As long as it’s inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it." McCain John "It’s not social issues I care about." McCain John "Presidential ambition is a disease which can only be cured by embalming fluid." McCain

    I thought this was really intelligent when I heard about it. Who mostly plays games like this? Young people. Young people are a very important demographic to capture votes from, and for the undecided young voters, this could help Barack even more. John W. McCain doesn't know how to use a computer, so I'm not surprised he didn't do this.
