GamingNexus What other games are you playing right now?

LiebermanTo tell you the truth I’m a big fan of the Grand Theft Auto:Vice City. There’s nothing like coming home and relaxing while trying to take over a crime-ridden, drug infested city. It’s a lot like running for president (except for the whole “hookers giving you strength thing”, that was strictly Clinton era)…I think Karl Rowe’s White house nickname is Tommy V but that might just be a rumor.

GamingNexus I guess that’s a bit stunning, what about RPG’s or MMORPG’s?

Lieberman Not really my type of game but I’ve heard Dennis Kusinich is a big Everquest fan. Howard Dean’s a big Final Fantasy Online addict. He’ll sit there with his wizard character by a pond and fish all day. I try to tell him to get out and do it for real but he just ignores me. Every once in a while, you’ll hear that “YEAAAAA” scream coming from him when he kills a monster. It’s pretty freaky.

GamingNexus That makes sense, the Kusinich does kind of look like an elf sometimes.

Lieberman Now that you mention it he kind of does. His entire economic package was going to a modified version of the Everquest barter system.

GamingNexus Are any of the other candidates gamers?

Lieberman Kerry is kind of a big gamer, but it’s mostly stuff like SSX3 and the extreme sports games. He plays a bit of EA hockey too. Bush is also a big gamer but it’s mostly stuff like Deer Hunter and Pong. After his campaign in Iraq, he’s been trying his hand at Conflict: Desert Storm. He gets all giddy when he takes down Saddam again.

If you haven’t figured it out by now this is our lame attempt at an April Fools joke. We hope that the people in Senator Lieberman’s camp have a sense of humor.
