    Senator calls video games "worse than guns" because they "affect people"

    On MSNBC today, U.S. senator Lamar Alexander (a Tennessee Republican) set a new benchmark for insanity by claiming that games are worse than guns."I think video games is a bigger problem than guns, because video games affect people," he told host Chuck Todd.Once again, this is an actual U.S. senator. An actual senator from the United States. That was elected to an office. This is a person who has a significant amount of power in this country, and he believes that video games are a bigger problem than guns.This is a good time to remind everyone that*there is no scientific evidence linking video games to violence.Lamar Alexander says guns don't kill people, video games do*[YouTube viaDailyKOS]

    This is a great example of Gov. Bobby Jindal's (R-LA) target with this comment:

    "We must stop being the stupid party. Its time for a new Republican party that talks like adults. Its time for us to articulate our plans and visions for America in real terms. We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments. Weve had enough of that.

    Apparently not all of them actually have had enough of that. Video games never killed anyone, and they never will.
    "The idea that the market will solve such things as environmental concerns, as our racial divides, as our class distinctions, our problems with educating and incorporating one generation of workers into the economy after the other when that economy is changing; the idea that the market is going to heed all of the human concerns and still maximise profit is juvenile. . . Are we all in this together or are we all not?" - David Simon, creator of The Wire
