An anti-war rallying cry that might just work

If you’re tired of all Vietnam-era relics and anti-free trade, pro-Mumia folks you see at anti-war rallies nowadays, well maybe it’s time to take a new approach. So says Mikel Reparaz:

As I sat pondering the President’s motives one day, it suddenly dawned on me that it is entirely likely our Commander in Chief has never played a single video game in his life. “Of course!” I exclaimed, startling my girlfriend, who was driving at the time. “Without the catharsis that video games provide, Bush has no way of fulfilling his militaristic fantasies other than actually fighting wars.”

Absolutely true. So Reparaz began the Buy Bush a PlayStation 2 Campaign. As he explains, it’s been a smashing success. More than enough money’s been raised to buy the PlayStation. Now the campaign is raising money for an extra controller for Cheney to use and a copy of “Conflict: Desert Storm,” a tactical shooter game in which the goal is to kill Saddam Hussein.
