    You would think that politicians would get bored of this and move onto something else. I guess not.

    Of course not. This sounds important and socially conscious to the average non-playing voter, so its an easy way for a politico to get their name in the paper, attract the geriatric vote and be seen as someone who "takes a stand" on sensitive issues. Why would they move on?

    I think politicians should carry warning labels.

    Or actually USE it to advertise the game. I think some show recently did this. Critics panned it, saying it was inappropriate and so on, and they used those quotes in their print ads. :p

    That's pretty much the reason I bought Manhunt when it came out.

    Exactly. We did something similar in a reelection campaign last year for a candidate I was working for for that very reason.
