Yay or Nay? Would You Knock Out Your Political Opponent?

The Democratic candidates are beating each other up, literally . . . well at least virtually. The New York Post presents: Democratic Fight Night —an online game where Barack Obama meets Hillary Clinton in the ring.


There is no skill required, and no policy to be found. You simply pick a candidate, scroll your mouse toward the other, and click to punch! Soon, blood and bruising will appear until your opponent is knocked out.

Is this brutal "game" just the Post's way of making obvious its desire to see a fight? Is the media eager to escalate the bloody match-up narrative because drama sells? Or, is this creative commentary on this historically gruesome primary season?

Nay, for it supports a childish violence we don't need in politics...then again, sometimes, you gotta whack 'em upside the head to scramble their programming and get 'em to listen.

We need to know how people will act under pressure! When someone says something stupid it tells us who they really are. Then we can make a more informed decision.

This is a great way to teach our children about politics, isn't it?If it's not learning certain words best left out of a four year olds vocabulary (thank you Billy-Jeff Clinton), it's that busting a lip in the name of politics is admirable. It's STUPID, but the Main Stream Media have been stuck on stupid for a long, long time.

I don't like it - they could make it a delegate chasing game or something. Winking at violence isn't a good thing.(I never liked Tom & Jerry or Ren & Stimpy...)

I think their just making light it and bringing some humor to the situation.

This turns me off. I hate the whole "if you disagree with me, you are my enemy" mindset and this feeds right into that. I mean, host the game...whatever, it's a free country. But, yuck.
