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?

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!

@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!!

NeenekoAh, that old straw man. That is one of the ironies about the discussion, the whole point is showing how good people can still have problems with sexism and not realize it.09/17/2014 - 9:11pm
Andrew EisenYes, there have been a handful of op-eds suggesting that the term “gamer” has become tainted (two that I know of) but that’s the opinion of only a few. I've seen an equal number from those who disagree.09/17/2014 - 8:55pm
Andrew EisenExcept, you haven't provided a single example of a site that’s actually calling gamers a "collective of Sexist White Bigoted Basement Dwelling Manchildren."09/17/2014 - 8:55pm
TechnogeekIf you want to make the stereotype of gamers less painful, try calling people out when they do bad shit rather than handwave it away as "not all gamers". Even if it is a few bad apples, that'll still more than enough to spoil the barrel.09/17/2014 - 8:53pm
quiknkoldI'm not going to Sell Gamergate anymore. It can sell itself. But I will sell the integrity of the Gamer. That we are still good people, who create and donate to charitys, Who engage with those around us and just want to have a good time.09/17/2014 - 7:35pm
quiknkoldpeople should not be harrassed and punished for the actions of a few. I've always welcomed and accepted everybody who wanted to join in. Who wanted to make them, or play them. I love good strong female protagonists, and want more.09/17/2014 - 7:35pm
quiknkoldOne of the tennants of Gamergate is to stand up against Harrassment. That Gamers arent like those assholes. We can argue for days if the Sexism or Antifeminism or corruption is there or not, But the one thing I believe in and wear on my sleave is that09/17/2014 - 7:35pm
quiknkoldBut there were these websites, attacking me and people like me, for the actions of a few. and then others joined in on Twitter and other places. there was a hashtag that said "explain in 4 words a gamer" and it made me sick.09/17/2014 - 7:35pm
quiknkoldManchildren who are awful people and that the Identity of the Gamer should die. This hurt me personally. I've always identified as a Gamer. Even in my childhood years, I was a Gamer. All my friends are Gamers. Its one of the core parts of my identity.09/17/2014 - 7:34pm
quiknkoldUltimately, With the whole Gamergate thing, I jumped on it due to the harassment. A small number of assholes harrass Anita and Zoe, and then all the publications lumped together Gamers as this collective of Sexist White Bigoted Basement Dwelling09/17/2014 - 7:34pm
quiknkoldEZacharyKnight : Lemme ask you a question. We have people who cling to walls, people who fire lasers from their eyes, people who can shapeshift....and yet fabric needs to be upheld to RL physics?09/17/2014 - 6:54pm
james_fudgebody paint?09/17/2014 - 5:33pm
E. Zachary Knightquiknkold, I stand corrected on the buttcrack thing. Still, I know of no fabric that actually does that.09/17/2014 - 5:05pm
Andrew EisenSo... it's unethical to discuss the ethics surrounding public interest vs. personal privacy?09/17/2014 - 4:45pm
prh99The source for the game was just released not long ago, it's at https://github.com/keendreams/keen09/17/2014 - 4:43pm

Andrew EisenI read the Kotaku story. Nowhere does it say anything close to "Gamers are white bigoted sexist losers." It's commenting specifically on the crap being slung at people discussing gender issues in games. So, what's the problem?09/17/2014 - 4:06pm
Andrew EisenYeah, I can imagine Spiderwoman posed like in your second link.09/17/2014 - 4:00pm
Andrew EisenThat's not the same pose. Spiderman (who is wearing an actual outfit rather than body paint) is crouched low to the ground. Kinda like a spider! Spiderwoman has her butt up in the air like she's waiting to be mounted.09/17/2014 - 3:59pm
