Hillary "Misspoke" About Bosnia - Now Comes the Video Game Version

March 29, 2008 -
Sen. Hillary Clinton's struggling campaign has taken a credibility hit over recent revelations that she misspoke about arriving in Bosnia under sniper fire in 1996.

Did you doubt for a moment that a video game version would be far behind?

Sinbad is down!

Grahamr:

I really enjoyed the episode. Regarding Basra, he discussed briefly the futility of our involvement in their civil war and his dismay that our "ally" in Iraq is now the Supreme Islamic Council.

Mabye she got it confused with one of her other visits.

Seriously with all the pot she's getting off Bill, those day's must be HAZY.

This was epic. I missed last night's Bill Maher, was it funny? Did he talk about Basra?

It woulda been funnier having a Mass Effect parody, but it's not like I'd expect him to care about something like that.... was still pretty good though. John McCain's Virtual Fireplace? LOL.

Chelsey cover me!

Lulz!

PWNED!

love how its a COD spoof with FFOW footage. it was pretty witty

LOL, not a bad parody at all, though I agree with DarkTetsuya that Mass Effect would have been better.

... I'd actually buy that virtual fireplace, regardless of McCain's name on it. As long as the physics are accurate, I wouldn't care. Nothing is more fun than pokin' a fire. Nothing.

That was just hilarious :p.

Countdown until someone throws together a custom Politician skin pack for CS:S....

Ghede: Me too..

Hilary "misspoke" riiiiiight, just like she's "misspoke" the several times before where she's pulled crap like this. I hope no one actually believes that.....

First i think thats a Battlefield mod and not a COD one...but i must say brilliantly well done..

and to be honest with you, i thought the title meant she misspoke about videogames, cause you know that will be a sign of some sort. :p

LOL...

Bill Maher FTW.

That was pretty funny but what really had me laughing was the John McCain's Virtual FirePlace...

X-Station 720 and the Yuu looks awesome.

Misspoking eh? We all do it, but most of us are honest enough to call them lies. :D

Gift.

@ Nash,

It's footage from Frontline(s): Fuels of War.

Besides it is more adapted than CoD footage anyway.

I really liked that one.

Fucking Hillarious! Im getting 3am call of duty!

GO: Thanks for posting that, it really brightened my day.

If this were true, I would so vote for Clinton! That was awesome!

If only, if only. I swear, Clinton and McCain are two of a kind (considering their opposite political parties). With their "misspokens" and back-alley deals with Joe Lieberman...Otherwise, I'd so vote for either of them (and buy their games)!

that was VERY GOOd, my hats off to everyone involved, LOL

Screw 3 A.M. Call of Duty. John McCain’s Virtual FirePlace is where it's at baby!

Maybe they can license the game to Bob Dole next? Or perhaps a celebrity like Abe Vigoda?

COMEDY!

No PS3-knock off?

@ddot

It's coming. Obama gets a basketball game.

Epic!

Umm... Hell yes!

"Because it takes a village to take a village"

Classic! I want in on Beta!

@ Belgarion89

Not basketball, Obama gets a "walking on eggshells" simulator with full Sixaxis support.


Is it just me, or is the term "misspoke" the new way of saying you lied without such a negative tone? Cooper Lawrence used the same term when she fessed up to lying about Mass Effect...

I'm so so so sick of Hillary. How can you "misspeak" that drastically.

We landed under fire = We arrived and a little girl read us a poem

Oops

Among some of the wiiware I've seen announced, that virtual fireplace game seems pretty tight. If you don't keep adding logs, you freeze. If you add too many and can't keep poking it every so often... your house burns down.

Brilliant stuff (compared to, say, major league eating).

that's amazing, just amazing.

I want the virtual fireplace!

No Cheney gun jokes?

In fairness, anyone could misspeak.
"I had to run for my life as I was shot at by a sniper who wanted me dead"
Does sound a lot like
"I strolled of a plane to where my entourage waited with refreshments."

I want John McCain’s Virtual Fireplace

Misspeaking is doubleplus ungood!

@Jay great 1984 reference, made me LOL.

Gift.

hahahahahaha

They also caught Hillary out on Rove Live in Australia.

They showed Hillary making that bogus (politically motivated) comment how she was SO BRAVE to run though the airport while under fire in Bosnia while they showed actural archived footage of her arriving peacefully from that plane back then to greet one of the girls at the air port and they were smilling.

And one of the comedians on Rove said, "RUN HILLARY RUN, THERE ARE BULLETS FLYING EVERYWHERE...DON'T SHAKE THAT LITTLE GIRL'S HANDS...OR ELSE YOU WILL BE HIT!!!!!"

It is so funny for politicans to lie but being caught out with archive footage like that.

Oh my God, Mccain's virtual fireplace doesn't have an ESRB rating on it. Who knows what kind of evil things you can be doing in that game. You might be cooking dead animals (read hot dogs) in the fire. We need to protect the children!

What would claiming to have been shot at by a sniper could possible add to why she should be president? Anybody can run and hide, it's like a basic instinct for all animals. Besides, I would think such a lie would be a great insult to those in Bosnia. Crazy Hillary, Trix are for kids.

Game: I wonder if Monica will be a boss or a traitor. Maybe their is some "hot coffee" were Bill and Monica are together. Pixel on pixel action

.....Is anybody else ticked that they used footage from frontlines fuel of war for the video but didn't even name the fake game after it? If your going to reference COD then at least use it in the vid
Other wise=amazing
.....Wow im annoying

You don 't "duck" sniper fire. They're pretty accuarate; you either get hit or not. I don't think there's an in between. How dumb does she think the American people are? And she had no reason to lie about it since it was so easily debunked. I mean she was caught on Camera for God's sake!!

IanCBroke my EA boycott to pick up Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. Loving it. Still hate EA though. But i like Popcap. Gah.08/30/2014 - 6:01am

AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenSaint's Row: Gat Out of Hell was just announced for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One making it the 150th game For Everything But Wii U! Congratulations Deep Silver!08/29/2014 - 3:49pm
ZippyDSMleeI do not hate them jsut think its mostly hyperlobe.08/29/2014 - 3:40pm
Andrew EisenSleaker - I'd say that's likely. From my experience, most who have a problem with Sarkeesian's videos either want to hate them in the first place (for whatever reason) or honestly misunderstand what they're about and what they're saying.08/29/2014 - 3:16pm
james_fudgeWe appreciate your support :)08/29/2014 - 2:55pm
TechnogeekIt gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, the gaming community is not statistically indistinguishable from consisting entirely of people that your average Xbox Live caricature would look at and go "maybe you should tone it down a little bit".08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
TechnogeekI just want to say that while I've disagreed with the staff of this site on several occasions, it's still good to see that they're not automatically dismissing Anita's videos as a "misandrist scam" or whatever the preferred dismissive term is these days.08/29/2014 - 2:49pm
E. Zachary KnightZippy, So you can't find even one?08/29/2014 - 1:04pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:Right because shes prefect and never exaggerates... *rolls eyes*08/29/2014 - 12:53pm
SleakerAnd honestly, nearly all of the games she references, or images she depicts I've always cringed at and wondered why they were included in games to begin with, from pinups through explicit sexual depictions or direct abuse. I think it's cheap storytelling.08/29/2014 - 12:35pm
Sleaker@AE - aren't most people fundamentally misunderstanding her at this point? haha.. On a related note I think a lot of the backlash is coming from males that think she is telling them their 'Generic Male Fantasy' is bad and wrong.08/29/2014 - 12:33pm
Andrew EisenAnd no, I don't think the female community would be upset over the performance of a case study in and of itself. Possibly the mostivations behind such a study, the methodology or conclusions but not the mere idea of a case study.08/29/2014 - 12:29pm
