    Since it’s an open thread….

    YOU MUST GO TO GOOGLE TODAY!

    Know what’s even better, YOU CAN ACTUALLY PLAY IT!!!

    I read an article about it. The guys at google FULLY recreated the game for today’s doodle. It’s got 255 levels. The same break scenes are included as in the original game. EVERYTHING.

    If I had come up with this I’d have to end my career as I think I’d have reached the penacle. I’m not sure this can ever be topped. LOL.

    Since I didn’t I’m deterined to spread the word at my company and cause us to have to block google for the next 3 days till they take it down. ROFL!

    This is an insulting comment for anyone sensitive to what happen during the Holocaust end of story!

    Newt Gingrich: Obama is Just Like Adolf Hitler

    ….WALLACE: “You also write this on the screen: “The secular socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.” Mr. Speaker, respectfully, isn’t that wildly over the top?”

    GINGRICH: “No, not if by America you mean….Just listen to President Obama’s language. He gets to decide who earns how much. He gets to decide when it’s too much.”

    WALLACE: “We’re not talking about any company. We’re talking about companies that the government has put billions of dollars in…”

    GINGRICH: “No, no..he has said publicly and generically. Some Americans earn too much. So now he’s going to decide that?”

    WALLACE: “No, he’s not. He has said that some Americans earn too much.”

    And on the Today Show, Gingrich even brings up Communist dictator Chairman Mao to further drive his attacks home:

    VIEIRA: “Can you honestly compare what’s going on with the Democrats with Nazi Germany?”

    GINGRICH: “No it’s not a question of how evil they were. Nazi Germany was terrible, Stalin’s Russia was terrible, Mao’s China was terrible. It’s a question of finality. Had we lost either of those contests, we would have become a radically different country.”…..

      What’s the name of that concept again which argues that given enough time and heated passion, every debate will lead to one side resorting to comparing the other side to Nazis or Hitler????

            • Game Fan says:

              meh, I don’t see the big problemo with comparing some of the recent presidents to dictators. How the hell do you think they got there? By having gigantic egos, by being mega p0wer freaks, and by not really giving a rat’s ass about the U.S. Constitution. Ivy league elitists with plenty-o “missing years” in their bio, ect… So basically Game Fan doesn’t give a rat’s ass if you compare a president to Hitler, Mao, Stalin, or Homer Simpson. It doesn’t bother me one iota.

              • Game Fan says:

                I also want to apologize to anyone offended by any violation of Godwin’s law. I’m a sensitive conservative and also an “angry white male” and I think many “angry white males” may feel the need to search for a historical parallel with some of the recent executive power grabs while at the same time distancing themselves from “the guy with the funny mustache”. Of course with Obama there’s another dilemma and that’s the fact that he’s not even white. So, perhaps comparing him to Robert Mugabe might work. You see the problem?

                • Game Fan says:

                  Of course many real conservatives have been warning about this “detention without trial” trend for years and years and have expressed concern about the general direction and how it might one day be applied to Americans. The “chickens coming home to roost” so to speak. I mean, especially after the presidential race you’d think Mcshame would have some real animosity towards the prez and might be wary of handing even more power to the executive branch.

                  Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) has introduced a bill that would allow the President to imprison an unlimited number of American citizens (as well as foreigners) indefinitely without trial. Known as The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010, or S. 3081, the bill authorizes the President to deny a detainee a trial by jury simply by designating that person an “enemy belligerent.”

              Obviously, formal forensics and Lincoln-Douglas Debate training cannot prepare one for the real world intricacies of PP……………

    Given the recent gubernatorial straw polls, when are we going to have a Peach Pundit straw poll for the Gov’s race? I know the usual suspects will be casting their votes for Handel, and i think there’s still a McBerry fan among us. Shoot, I think I even saw an Otis fan on here the other day. But I’d love to see how the rest of us would fall in line.

    It would also be interesting to see if any of us would vote Undecided considering that we actually know who’s running and we’re more familiar with most of the issues and candidates than the average voter who isn’t geeky enough to read PP (almost) every day 🙂

    PP has been slow on the news draw lately:

    U.S. Rep. Marshall, others push for balanced budget amendment

    WASHINGTON — Led in part by Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall of Macon, a group of U.S. House members is pushing for an amendment to the Constitution that would require the government to balance the federal budget and keep it balanced.

    Washington Watch: Rep. Kingston’s role in GOP’s new ‘Contract’

    Kingston late last year started drafting his own new “Contract With America,” based on suggestions he got in response to 63,000 e-mails he sent to Georgians soliciting ideas. Most responses were predictable: Reduce government, secure borders, repeal health care legislation. Others were unique, such as eliminating Saturday mail service.

    When Kingston started talking to other House members about his new “Contract for America,” he said, Republican leadership took notice. Kingston is smarter than to suggest that GOP leaders stole his idea, instead saying carefully that he thinks many of the ideas behind his new “Contract” will be rolled into his party’s new “Commitment.”

    And just now: Bill Stephens withdraws from 9th District contest

        • Henry Waxman says:

          But why stop there. ..Your friends at PP are sponsoring a Karen Handel campaign event disguised/deceptively mislabeled as a “Peach Pundit Road Show ”

          By the way, at what point does Georgia law start requiring this site to start filing its operating expenses as in-kind contributions to Karen Handel for Governor, Inc.? It’s gotta be getting pretty close to that line.

          • Icarus says:

            The Road Show is for a comedian who has a show about drinking. It’s a natural cross-branded event for Peach Pundit.

            Handel’s Yacht Rock party is (was) a separate event, last night.

            Handel will be at a McBerry-less debate during our Road Show. Speaking of, Your guy probably shouldn’t make the mistake of asking her an ethics question again like he did in Macon. If he does, she’ll just kick him in the balls again, and she doesn’t need a Peach Pundit sponsorship to accomplish that.

            • Lady Thinker says:

              I was disappointed that no questions on ethics were asked but then, Deal and Oxendine were at the debate and I doubt the audience would have listened to either one with a straight face. Sorry I had to miss your event. McBerry supporters were there but I didn’t see anyone talking with or to them.

              • Henry Waxman says:

                I obviously didn’t read the post close enough to see that two separate events were being plugged, and for that, I apologize.

                However, it is nice of y’all to provide free plugs for Karen Handel’s fundraising events while charging other candidates to advertise on the site. Again, at what point does this site have to file its operating expenses as an in-kind contribution to Karen Handel for Governor, Inc.???

    • Doug Deal says:

      So, then why did he vote fo the bailouts and extending the debt ceiling to 14 trillion or so? Marshall is a fraud, and is just acting like a felon who happens to find religion right before the parole hearing.

      Time to boot this imposter.

      • ByteMe says:

        Perhaps for the same reason that all of Congress at one time or another votes to increase the ceiling: because shutting down the country is worse. As for the bailouts, you know how I feel about them. Anyone who voted against them was voting for a depression, which I guess takes more guts, but not more brains.

          • Game Fan says:

            p.s. Game Fan is also opposed to ALL bailouts. “Too big to fail”? So we can’t let them fail? How about “too big, dumb and dangerous to allow these miserable failures to continue leeching off the taxpayer”?

            • ByteMe says:

              I’m personally for taking every TBTF company and cutting them into tiny tidbits using a dull knife and then drowning the tidbits in salt water. But that’s not reality. Reality is that there should be regulations that prevent it from happening again by tying reserve levels to entity size… the bigger you are, the more reserves you have to have in place. You want to have a $100 billion banking concern, you must keep 20% (instead of 8 or so %) in reserve. Make it more cost-effective not to get past a certain size.

      • B Balz says:

        Tough words to cast at an Army Ranger, there Doug. I would give the man a bit more respect than this. Calling a sitting Rep. a fraud because they are acting fraudulently is one thing, quite another because you don’t agree with their politics.

        Seems that the anti-Jim Marshall rhetoric is pretty strong, and I don’t think its adds one bit to the issues at hand. 1st Amendment and all that, but you can do better.

    • Lady Thinker says:

      And it’s looking more and more like I will be one of those teachers on the college level. Wonder if I can get into some level of administration. Probably not, I don’t belong to a clique.
