Snapshot_002_320.jpgI love it when such disparate topics as politics and geekdom come together in a perfect storm of total weirdness. This just cracks me up...

Shortly before midnight (CST) on Monday, February 26, a group of republican Second Life users, some sporting "Bush '08" tags, vandalized the John Edwards Second Life HQ. They plastered the area with Marxist/Lenninist posters and slogans, a feces spewing obsenity, and a photoshopped picture of John in blackface, all the while harrassing visitors with right-wing nonsense and obsenity-laden abuse of Democrats in general and John in particular.
You can read more about the game, Second Life, at Wikipedia.

I think it's all a bit strange, people with too much time on their hands and such but I'm such a cultural walking anachronism at times that I'd have probably said the same thing about the phonograph at its outset.
