Well, Now I Want To Vote For Hillary

That's a screencap from Hillary Clinton's new TV ad in her joke of a Senate race against former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer. Someone can correct me if they've seen it before, but to my knowledge Hillary's the first candidate to front her war on video games in a campaign commercial. One politican, obviously, who could care less about the libertarian vote.

  1. COULDN’T care less. Sorry, that’s a pet peeve. Oh yeah, does she actually think that commercial will help?

  2. Will the kids still have to pay taxes on their WoW assets?

  3. Rally the youth vote: for her next trick, Billary will demand that, in addition to taxes of online commerce, proper criminal justice be enforced on line. This will lead to calls for virtual storm trooper squads and F.B.I. raids in Linden.

    Where I want to be a fly on the wall is when the Feebs try to train their S.A.’s in the use of the Longsword and the propper type of armor to wear…. Oh, wait, they’ll just demand that on-line game hosts grant them all immunity to damage. Can a On-line Weapons Control Act be far behind?

  4. I went to her website and clicked on the HillaryTV link looking for this commercial. Didn’t get it, but instead got some overcoming obstacles bullshit video. Interesting thing is there’s a short clip of Gary Nolan calling her “the most egregious, the most offensive.” Pretty sweet.

  5. We need another essay from Kos about the Libertarian Democrat. Where might that be on the agenda, Markos? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

  6. “Democracy, the worst form of a government, except for all the others.” Winston Churchill

    If a 3rd rate, mediocre talent like cunt Hillary can become this powerful, well if that doesn’t prove Churchill’s statement, nothing will.

  7. The Clintons have always been all about “the children.”

  8. Hillary…Spitzer…something in the New York water, or what? It’s enough to make you nostalgic for the days of Cuomo and Ed Koch…

    BTW Terry: please don’t use the “c” word in conjunction with Hillary; it’s an insult to vaginas everywhere…

  9. My son tells me that political wars on video games can do no more damage than the game makers themselves, who deliver product of incresingly lesser quality with each passing year, often expecting players to tender REAL cash — and lots of it! — to play broken, “BETA” versions of the games for extended stretches.

    Just like the commercial music and motion picture industries, I think the video game industry contains the seeds of its own demise. Let the free market work, I say. Who needs Hillary and yet another silly “war”?

  10. Can a On-line Weapons Control Act be far behind?
    Probably, but it won’t stop there. It will include everything that is a weapon or could be potentially made into a weapon. Say goodbye to your 0.5 mm mechanical pencil, flight simulator and flash based “Whack-a-mole” and hello to “Virtually No Weapon Left Behind.”

  11. We need another essay from Kos about the Libertarian Democrat.

    I would like to know if there are any civil libertarians left in the Democratic party who either have or are willing to call Clinton to task for her recent swing toward moral fascism (not to mention her jingoistic support for the flag burning ban)? Yeah, yeah, I know “liberals have much respect for free speech as the right,” but when Ed Meese and Bill Bennett we’re screaming and moaning about Robert Mapplethrope exhibits and “Piss Christ” you could at least count on one or two Dems to step up and rightfully invoke the first amendement…

    …or did that happen only because Meese and Bennett were Republicans?

  12. …or did that happen only because Meese and Bennett were Republicans?

    Yes. And ther Republicans support free speech when Dems are against it.

    I know it’s been said so much it sounds cliche’ but it really has become about partisanship and not about principles.

    But most everyone who frequents this blog knows this.

  13. I know it’s been said so much it sounds cliche’ but it really has become about partisanship and not about principles.

    But it seems like if it wasn’t for partisanship, no-one would care about freedom of speech.

  14. COULDN’T care less. Sorry, that’s a pet peeve.

    Me too!

    So… she’s taking a position on video games that’s likely to match that of the vast majority of the electorate. And we’re faulting HER for that?</cynicism>
