With the latest brouhaha and folderol about how video games are polluting our nation’s bodily fluids, I am reminded that this is an election year. This is a link to the Video Game Voters Network. Each party has at least one primary candidate running against free expression. One ran ads against violent video games in her re-election campaign, while another is against free speech more generally. The leading anti-video game advocate, Senator Lieberman, is sitting out this election cycle so far, apart from endorsing Senator McCain.
People still burn books, you know.
This is not an open thread on the candidates, but if you would like to discuss their views on video games, free speech, or expression generally, feel free. Please be polite and on-topic, as if everyone (the candidates included) were in the room, rather than the standard internet political discussion. (We usually avoid politics, and I do not want to use the Mod Stick on the comments.)
