Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

October 6, 2008 -

Pwn or Die serves up new Sarah Palin images in which the Republican Veep candidate is Photoshopped into various video game shots. 

You'll recognize GTA IV, Tomb Raider, and others

Personally I found the GTA IV lollipop girl image (hit the link) the most entertaining, but the big, huge Pwn or Die watermark across the center is a buzz kill.

We are seeing more and more Palin parody material of late. Fidget finds it no surprise that Palin is getting so much attention in gaming circles, citing this RNC-time post on The Atlantic

In addition, I predict a bonus unintended consequence for McCain among middle class/educated/post-college/pre-adult white males. A demographic label that follows many into their late 30s and currently trends for Obama. Basically the gamers/Gen-Xers/Seth Rogen/Will Farrell crowd..."Sarah Palin as Lara Croft" will leave these guys drooling like zombies.

So.... David Jaffe calling her a MILF is bad, but this is humorous and a-ok?

 

Hmmmm

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

It already has. Remember the "If Barack Obama is president, would we still call it the White House" thing?

How about the "Terrorist Fist Jab"?

How about the allegations of him going to a Madrassa?

Yeah.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

He went to a Madrassa.

And he experienced far less 'hate speech' than Palin.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

Yes he went to a madrassa. What of it?

"And he experienced far less 'hate speech' than Palin."

Bullshit.

During the primaries one of his campaign offices (I belive in Pensylvania) got vandalized by a band of racists, with slurs like "hang that N***** from a tree" spray painted on the walls.

Find me one instance of comparable Hatred being directed at sarah palin, And I'll start singing her praises.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

Although I feel modern Feminism is a hate-group full of BS, the reaction the media, so called "progressives", and conservative supporters, has been largely sexist towards Palin. 

Comments about her looks, photoshops, liberals calling her ugly ("enlightened" ideology?), Feminists saying she should be caring for her kids, etc.  Way too much of this crap surrounds her as a topic, and less of the real issues- her far right politics, anti-abortion, creationism, etc.

So much for gender equality...

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

Actually it is equal. We bring up a ton of useless crap and then spend days or so bitching about it for every candidate whether they be male or female.

Oh and seriously biased people will find any excuse to hate on the other side, same as always.

This comment is so low and insulting, I don't even know where to start. Intelligent people, GAMERS AMONG THEM, do not vote for someone because she has female bits. Intelligent people know that any hotness from her is cancelled out by the fact that she opposes abortion even in the case of rape, believes that "We have to win in Iraq" without mentioning a method of doing so, wants to ban books, dodges questions that are too hard for her Penecostal mind, and is about as intelligent as my toe-jam.

Congratulations, she is somewhat comely. This does NOT TRANSLATE INTO VOTES. AT ALL. EVER.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

"This does NOT TRANSLATE INTO VOTES. AT ALL. EVER."

It did for women for Kennedy over Nixon, and for Clinton over Bush/Dole... But that was for THE presidency, and not VICE presidency... and Obama is young enough to nullify that kind of thing anyway. The bottm line is sexy can and does, oh so very sadly, get votes...

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

Its almost as sad as the fact that flashing words like Hope and Change in front of people's eyes make them believe that people actually stand for them, despite their voting record and the fact that they refuse to take a stance on the issues, as well as the fact that they don't have any real plan to fix anything.  But hey, Hope and Change is like tits and vaginas for the optimistic soul, right?

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

No, it is quite sadder. 

It is sad that we even consider her qualified, when she is far less qualified than the "inexperienced" Obama.

It is sad that Republicans believe that she is a change in anything but gender.

Yay! Let's "win" in Iraq somehow!

Brain: "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?" Pinky: "I think so, Brain, but we're already naked."

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

She's actually the only one with executive experience, while Obama's experience is running for higher office and spurning the people who voted him in to make the lobbies happy.

Its absolutely depressing that anyone believes Obama is a change in anything but color.

And if anyone can win in Iraq, it's John McCain.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

1: Sarah palin's "executive expierience" is mostly about surrounding herself with cronies and self serving policy.

2: Obama's past expierience as a CONSTITUTIONAL PROFFESSOR vastly trumps her value as mayor of a town of 5000 (which she saddled with more then 20 million in debt).

3: Sarah's husband was a member of the Alaskan independance party from 95-02. During that time she made at least a few speaches and a video for the party.

4: Mcain has been almost schizophrenic with his policies and principles, completely 180ing his oppinion on regulation and drilling in particular.

5. Your not going to win in iraq. It can't be done anymore then peace between the palestinians and the israeli's. The pressence of insurgenst is only because you have troops in the area, and the country will continue to be a hellhole until sometime after you pull out.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

As for #5, it is Iraq's choice to win Iraq for themselves, not ours.  They have to take over their country and manage it themselves.  America can't win Iraq for the people of Iraq.  The concept alone is stupid, and though we can help with training, and supplies, we have no reason to be over there anymore other than protecting certain borders to prevent Iraq from being taken over, and going after Bin Laden.

McCain is hasn't even shown up to work 65% of the time for the past 8 years in the Senate.  These guys only work 3 days a week on average too.  So if he is only showing up 35% of the time, he is only showing up 1 day a week on average, and making $170,000 a year for it.  I personally believe their pay should be in ratio of their participation, and if they are not there at least 90% of the time, then they lose their jobs, which would actually mean that Obama and McCain would be out of a job, but how much of it is due to campaign? Either way, McCain has had less of a campaign demand than Obama, mainly because of Hillary, and still McCain isn't there well over half of the time...

Man, it would be amazing to only have to work 1 day a week for $170,000 a year, or even have to show up for work 1/3rd of the time and make what I do now...

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

DeepThorn seems to be the only one who is thinking outside of a Partison BS perspective. Austin's blinders are on so tight that he couldnt even see the sun if it was a democrat (bad analogy I know, but I'm grasping at straws for a good one). The other people who replied were just as bad in the other extreme.

Partisonship literally blinds you to the opposition. You have no sane reference point for their party due to confirmation bias. It's very BASIC psychology, people. Don't try to argue with them... they'll think you're stupid and you'll color them ignorant. Just nod, pat them on the head, say "good boy", and move on.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

Austin seems to be the only one here to adamantly defend McCain and his campaign.

Sarah Palin has reasonable skills to lead, as a local official or community organizer. But I can't understand how she is VP material.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

I reiterate: Palins time as both mayor and Governor has been tarnished by numerous self serving and outright ridiculous acts. She really should not be running anything higher up then pta meetings and she has virtually no expierience with forign policy. Her appointment as a VP is simply insane.

Do I belive that Obama is a political messiah, who will carry the economy to a bright new future on his shoulders as he walks across the tempestuous waters of the international community? Hell no. Odds are his presidency is going to be almost completely devoted to defibulating the economy so it doesn't slide into oblivion. That means his lofty dreams of increased funding for green energy and improved education are likely going to fall flat. A lot of large corporations are liable to engage in douche bag antics when they are made to pay higher taxes,; passing the costs along to consumers so that they can maintain their obscene profit margins.

When Obama wins He will be moving into a whitehouse that oversees a country that is horribly wounded, and he will need to devote the overwhelming majority of his time to repairing the damage wrought to the financial institutions by bush's 8 year "hands off" policies.

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

I just can not understand for the life of me why people find her sexy... Everytime I look at her face I think of a female Skeletor and that bothers me, America!

Re: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into GTA

I find Tina Fey kinda cute, but not palin...  and I use kinda loosely, as in she is okay looking, and if I had 5 beers in me and hadn't gotten any action in a few months.  Palin would be 5 shots of straight everclear, no action for 6 months, and hoping that she wouldnt be there in the morning when I woke up.

Andrew EisenWhat I find most amazing is the fact that Yiannoppoulos's evidence doesn't in any way support his claim. And I still fail to see the lack of ethics in discussing the ethics surrounding public interest vs. personal privacy.09/19/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOh yeah, some outlets sensationalize things (especially with the chosen headline). No argument there. As far as gender issues not being widespread? I'm inclined to disagree but I suppose it depends on what specifically you're talking about.09/19/2014 - 3:43pm
SleakerI think I've been qualitatively informed by those Factual Femenist videos that there isn't reallly a widespread gender issue, and that there are select news outlets that try to sensationalize things.09/19/2014 - 3:37pm

NeenekoI have met some real jerks and slimeballs in gender activism, but when I hear the idea that there are many 'not nice' people it comes across as code for 'uppity people who do not know their place'.09/19/2014 - 12:10pm
Andrew EisenKrono - Many of the people pushing gender issues aren't nice people? I'm sure not everyone's a sweatheart but so far, everyone I've seen with such a critique had absolutely nothing to back them up.09/19/2014 - 10:46am
InfophileI think there's a qualitative difference between a site and a hashtag though. GP can ban anyone from commenting, so they can have the image they want. But anyone can use any hashtag and try to poison it. Granted, that hasn't happened to the other one yet09/19/2014 - 10:13am
E. Zachary KnightKrono, your comparison to GP does not work. We do not need to get rid of GP, because no one associates GP with trolls and abuse. The same can't be said for gamergate.09/19/2014 - 10:09am
Krono@Michael You don't remember the "other hashtag" because no one actually uses it. We're talking 836,983 uses of #gamergate over it's lifetime, and 8,119 for the "alternative". 47,129 uses on the 18th vs 41. With #notyourshield at 140,133 uses & 5,209 uses09/19/2014 - 9:48am

Krono@Andrew aaah. Yes, I'm sure there's some of that. Part of the problem is many of the people pushing gender issues are not very nice people. Basically the latest incarnation of moralists we've seen in the past couple decades. Naturually some will take this09/19/2014 - 9:23am
