... truthiness is scary, and you can't handle it.

My favourite conservative troll is at it again. I really don't know if he's saying this stuff to be antagonistic and get more Google hits. Really. But it certainly works. You know what they say, when you know just enough to be dangerous...

In his Radio Factor show on Friday (it took till now for my jaw to be able to shut) he slams games, gamers, gamer culture... MACHINES... umm.. and ipods, among others. You really have to read snippets of the transcript to really wonder...are people taking this guy seriously? He was on Oprah not too long ago talking about his "Culture Warrior" stuff (you know, there's a war going on in America... a war of cultures, 'traditionalists' vs bleeding heart liberals blah blah). Sees himself as a courageous crusader for what is -R-ight. This is why Colbert has an enterprise parodying this guy. It's kinda morbidly fun.

Gems I must highlight: "I really fear for the United States because, believe me, the jihadists? They’re not playing the video games. They’re killing real people over there."

However, it is interesting to point out that he offers a premium $50/year membership that includes a *gasp* podcast.
