Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The GOP: From "Joe Cao is the future!" to "BURN THE SOCIALIST HEATHEN!!1!"
In the GOP's ongoing effort to be, on average, three millimeters to the left of Attila the Hun, Anh "Joseph" Cao (R-LA, occupying William "Dollar Bill" Jefferson's old seat after beating him by three points in a D+28 district) has a primary opponent for next year, because he voted for the health care reform bill that was put before the House on Sunday night. This, despite the fact that Cao even voted against the stimulus (ostensibly because it didn't give his district enough money, actually because Boehner wouldn't let him), and voted for the Stupak Amendment. He's the only Republican who could possibly be elected from that district next year, on the power of incumbency, and even with that he'll almost certainly lose, and they want him out. The Republican Party: Conservatism Uber Alles!
I know I heard last night that someone had already vowed to primary him, but at this point, he won't have the support of the Club for Growth.
Bonus Poe's Law Moment: Last night I posted two fictitious quotes from Fox about this: "Joe Cao just voted for socialism!" and "This will definitely hurt his reelection prospects, yes." Three people asked me who had said that and when it would be up for viewing.
