Video: Palin, Obama kick ass and take names in new video game

posted at 4:57 pm on October 31, 2008 by Allahpundit

Via Jim Treacher, I link it reluctantly out of fear that its sheer awesomeness may endanger small children and senior citizens. My one critique: Having the ‘Cuda bang the pilot’s head against the controls of the helicopter isn’t nearly bad-ass enough. Snapping his neck or tearing his head clear from his body would be truer to her essence.

This is probably as close as we’ll get to seeing The One rough up America’s enemies, so enjoy it.

By the way, in case you don’t remember this is the game that had Comrade Hugo up in arms last year. It’s a very good game, too.

What about the actual, real war hero, John S. McCain?

Abby Adams on October 31, 2008 at 5:00 PM

Except only one of them actually has fired a weapon before.

DeweyWins on October 31, 2008 at 5:00 PM

LOL, I saw this on Ace a little while ago. If you go to the actual site, the only comment that is on there says that Sarah doing all of that is more believable.

MobileVideoEngineer on October 31, 2008 at 5:01 PM

Wow. That was even cooler than Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out.

That said, Barry on the tank gave me a kind of Dukakis-vibe…

Pasalubong on October 31, 2008 at 5:02 PM

That is freakin awesome.

BadgerHawk on October 31, 2008 at 5:03 PM

LMAO! You go, girl!

Connie on October 31, 2008 at 5:03 PM

In the still, does it look like Obama piddled himself?

lorien1973 on October 31, 2008 at 5:04 PM

Palin is totally believable. Lord Barry? Not so much.

ronsfi on October 31, 2008 at 5:04 PM

What a mismatch. Piper could beat up Senator Dipstick.

My collie says:

If they wanted the game to be scary, they should include a Michelle Obama avatar.

CyberCipher on October 31, 2008 at 5:07 PM

I’m,in heaven,I want Mercenarires 2,I have Mercenaries 1!

I’m still LMAO!

I wish SarahCuda had her Alaskan National Guard
combat fatiques on though!haha!

I’m selling my copy on ebay. I hated Merc 2. It doesn’t have any of the charm of the first one, if you ask me.

lorien1973 on October 31, 2008 at 5:09 PM

Since you mentioned eBay… I figure I should pass this along (for those who missed it). Why is Biden so unpopular?

And they say Sarah Palin is a drag on the ticket.

Abby Adams on October 31, 2008 at 5:12 PM

Not a new video game, just an update to an existing video game.

Enoxo on October 31, 2008 at 5:12 PM

Palin is totally believeable.

Obama, not so much. As a Lightworker, and the messiah, he can simply wave his hand to melt tanks and make bullets turn into flowers. He has no need for weapons … he is a weapon.

ROFLMAO!! Palin is worth more than twice Obama. That’s awesome.

Enoxo on October 31, 2008 at 5:17 PM

So where’s McCain? The boss character?

brak on October 31, 2008 at 5:17 PM

I could sooo see Gov Palin doing this!,…Kickin butt!!!

christene on October 31, 2008 at 5:18 PM

Anyone else notice one of Obama’s objectives is to grab the cash?

scrubbiedude on October 31, 2008 at 5:25 PM

I just heard on the radio some poll that only 9% of white men are voting for McCain. Yes, I said for. I must be on a different planet.

Blake on October 31, 2008 at 5:25 PM

In the Obama segment, you just press A/B/- at the same time to throw down your weapons and engage in negotiations without preconditions.

gridlock2 on October 31, 2008 at 5:26 PM

I think it be more prescient to have Gov. Palin rescuing BO from an Iranian prison after his last unconditional talk with Ahmedinejad.

I think you’re picking up an extraterrestrial frequency.

Or maybe an interdimensional one.

Grue in the Attic on October 31, 2008 at 5:29 PM

Barry joined Michelle in the “red” tank.

marklmail on October 31, 2008 at 5:29 PM

I’m selling,

lorien 1973 on Oct 31,2008 at 5:09PM.

lorien 1973: Excellent idea,but,I don’t have the new X-box
360 yet,and if my facts are correct its only
avialable for the new X-Box 360!

I have the old system X-box!:)

Does it come on Wii or PC?

Grue in the Attic on October 31, 2008 at 5:37 PM

Wow… but I call bull on the Obama character. I seriously doubt he’d know the business end on a rocket launcher!

dominigan on October 31, 2008 at 5:37 PM

I saw this somewhere yesterday, and my impression after seeing it again is still the same – If Barry sees this, he’s really got to feel like a POS, because picturing Palin actually doing these things is infinitely more plausible than seeing Barry do them. I mean, come on… we’re talking about this guy:

Please Obama would never pick up a gun.

said Michelle Obama. Just sayin.

marklmail on October 31, 2008 at 5:46 PM

Let me guess…Obamuhhh minces away and the poorly-programmed AI soldier chases after him and dies of a heart attack.

Master Shake on October 31, 2008 at 5:57 PM

Heh. Princess Sarah chokes out the pilot, slams his head on the console. Too funny.

Jaibones on October 31, 2008 at 6:00 PM

When we first see Obama the words above him say:

Destroy everything. Grab the cash.

I think that pretty much sums it up.

29Victor on October 31, 2008 at 6:27 PM

Does it come in Wii or PC?

Grue in the Attic on Oct 31,2008 at 5:37PM.

You can also play as Tina Fey, but your character is limited to standing around making sarcastic remarks while everybody else gets $#!+ done.

Jim Treacher on October 31, 2008 at 7:34 PM

Palin has man hands but otherwise, pretty awesome. Obama just looks…awkward.

Mommypundit on October 31, 2008 at 7:58 PM

I expected the grenade to go off in Obama’s hand for not getting rid of it quick enough.

backwoods conservative on October 31, 2008 at 8:04 PM

Obama’s driving an SUV??!!!?!!!???!!!!!

P.S. They forgot to have Obama say Allah Akbar. I kid I kid.

MirCat on October 31, 2008 at 8:04 PM

Mercs 2 is awesome.

Gaunilon on October 31, 2008 at 9:57 PM

…Palin…crawling up the side of a tank…in a skirt….

…woody time, man…woody time….

…Obama, fragging the tank…a bit lame, but not bad for a virtual asshat….

…Sarah had more face time…and, hanging from the chopper and all, was twice the virtual man Merry Barry was portrayed to be….

…and if there had been any moose around, she’d've eaten ‘em raw….

Puritan1648 on November 1, 2008 at 12:50 AM

Is this what McCain meant by bipartisanship?

Where’s Joe the Plumber and Tito infiltrating the Hugo’s winter palace?

Sapwolf on November 1, 2008 at 12:50 AM

I would have had much more knife-play by the Cuda.

Sapwolf on November 1, 2008 at 12:50 AM

It doesn’t count unless there’s Kim Jong Il!
