Kansas Senator Would Like Barack Obama To Beat Him At Basketball

Between the tantrum-throwing and secret Ben Affleck movie viewings, it appears that this debt debate has officially caused everyone in Washington to go completely insane! Or at least more insane than usual. Exhibit A: Republican Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas is having very detailed panic dreams about a made-up basketball game between himself and President Obama, in which the two discuss tax hikes in the aviation industry and then Roberts loses miserably, to prove a point.

A Fun Week-Too-Late Game Of Obama Hyperbole — Thanks, HuffPo!

Usually as we’re going through our “All New Items” tab on Google Reader and come to a batch of HuffPo articles, we scroll down as fast as possible for about 10 seconds while closing our eyes and clutching our loved ones, hoping that afterwards we may have finally broken through the hurling asteroid cluster of things like, “Alec Baldwin: UN Trade Envoy Could Talk Up Long-Term Interest Rates” or “Arianna Huffington: This Is Actually Another Publication’s Article That We’ve Copied Wholesale Onto Our Website So As To Get Top Google News Placement.” But today we came across this one called “Terrance Heath: America’s Mountaintop Moment,” and we’ve been trying to scroll through it for seven hours with no end in sight! It is about HMM GUESS WHO, and it’s generative enough for a fun game! Read more on A Fun Week-Too-Late Game Of Obama Hyperbole — Thanks, HuffPo!…

A Children’s Treasury Of Shoe-Throwing Games

Before the dawn of the Internet, people used to waste time the old-fashioned way: by playing solitaire on their shitty Windows 3.1 machines. Then Doom and Quake and The Sims and Spore came along, and time-wasting evolved into a very sophisticated and complicated activity that required thousands of dollars of expensive electronics to perform correctly. Thanks to the dude who threw a shoe at George W. Bush, the Internet has seen a flowering of incredibly simple and mindless games that would have been amazing and cutting-edge in 1996.

You win if you get to 10 points before you have a seizure. [blogslut] Read more on Throw Shoes At Animated George W. Bush!…

POWER LINE THINKS IT CAN MESS WITH US: The loser mcloseralots at Power Line have urged their readers to play the car game constantly: “Here’s the thing: so far, Power Line readers are doing very poorly compared to some other sites. Wonkette, actually, is in the lead, and they’re crowing about it, although they also acknowledge that it may reflect poorly on the employment status of their readers.” Oooh, burn! Power Line is now in second place, with approximately one-seventh as many points as us. Keep an eye out. Nate Silver’s Eco Drivers still fucking suck. [Power Line] Read more on …

NONE OF YOU PEOPLE DO ACTUAL WORK, DO YOU? Click the little picture here and you will see something remarkable: More than 500 of you nuts are playing this little EcoDriving game widget deal, and you’ve accumulated nearly 15 million points. The closest competition doesn’t even have a half-million points, while losers who read Talking Points Memo and Power Line and, presumably, fivethirtyeight.com (Nate’s EcoDrivers?) actually have scores lower than any human math can represent.

Make Your Own ‘Joe The Plumber’ Sign, Watch It Get Rejected

The McCain website has this fantastic new feature in which you design your own “Joe the Plumber” anger bear sign, about taxes. As the example above demonstrates, however, there is high potential for CHILDISH ABUSE with this thing, and so far we’ve submitted nine different signs that the website *promised* to e-mail to us, and none of them have come. Not even our most benign — dare we say courteous? — submission, “I am Walnuts the fucktard.” We give up. Now you people go ahead and try, and if you get any good ones past the filter demons, please send them our way. [John McCain] Read more on Make Your Own ‘Joe The Plumber’ Sign, Watch It Get Rejected…

Coward McCain Will (Maybe?) Show Up Tonight, So Here’s Your Debate Drinking Game!

Whew, that was close. Goofy old national joke John “Walnuts!” McCain had threatened to skip tonight’s debate unless he, uh, solved the Financial Crisis. Luckily for us, the 500-year-old clown can’t “keep his word” for more than a few minutes, so of course he’ll be at the debate tonight, unless he changes his mind again, which happens often when you can’t remember what you just said and have no idea what you’re talking about, anyway. So, huzzah, we will get to drink on a Friday night after all! Get out your iPhone or whatever and make a shopping list, because it’s time for Wonkette’s Famous Debate Drinking Game!

Historic White House Easter Egg Roll Happening Right Now!!!

Five million years ago yesterday, the Lord Jesus died for our sins and then came back to say howdy and then went away again.

Make Obama ‘Shoot’ Hillary With ‘Paint Balls’

Matt Drudge is super excited about this dumb web-video game. “Online shooting game lets kids target presidential candidates,” he typed on Drudge Report today. Tragically, it’s just “virtual paintball” — an even dumber version of the dumb corporate-retreat diversion in which people play some sort of capture-the-flag game and aim the paint pellets at each others’ nuts. Also, the Rudy Giuliani in this game still has his iconic 9/11 combover. [Presidential Paintball] Read more on Make Obama ‘Shoot’ Hillary With ‘Paint Balls’…
 

Eric Cantor’s Choose Your Own Shitty Flash Adventure

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) has punished his poor interns by forcing them to put together a terrible flash video game in which you choose your own “CARRIED INTEREST ADVENTURE.” Private Equity is at risk and only you can save it! There’s a “deep throat” in a parking garage warning about how Nancy Pelosi is attacking our pension funds from her invisible Wonder Woman plane and the villain is Charlie Rangel or something and really it’s too utterly insane to even mock. Go play it! Carried Interest Adventure [Eric Cantor] Read more on Eric Cantor’s Choose Your Own Shitty Flash Adventure…

Today On Fun With Federal Government Websites: “Colliding Balls”

We don’t know what it has to do with teaching kids about the proper disposal of Nuclear Waste, but the Yucca Mountain Youth Zone has some sort of flash game that has kept us distracted and unable to work for like an hour now. The first Federal Government Website for Kids that Mom and Dad can enjoy too? Read more on Today On Fun With Federal Government Websites: “Colliding Balls”…
