I hate to keep harping on this...

...but Jesus Christ.

"We should all be deeply disturbed that a game which now permits the simulation of lewd sexual acts in an interactive format with highly realistic graphics has fallen into the hands of young people across the country," [Clinton] said in a letter to the head of the Federal Trade Commission."

I don't know what we'd do without a fearless moral arbiter like Clinton to tell us what "should" disturb us. And she makes a valid point: it's difficult to imagine anything that should disturb us more. But I want to get this straight: should we still be disturbed if there were a game that permitted the simulation of lewd acts in a non-interactive format? What if it's interactive, but it lacks "highly realistic graphics?" And what if instead of lewd sexual acts, it showed very proper, chaste sexual acts? What then, Senator? What then? These things are important. Apparently.

God I wish we could run a credible primary challenger against this woman.
