Fox News asks if NBA Jam is ‘bipartisan’

I don’t even know where to begin with this. Fox News interviewed EA Sports boss Peter Moore because there are unlockable politicians in NBA Jam. You can get Obama, Palin, McCain and a whole bunch of the people who are slowly contributing to our collective national ulcer in the game and self-satisfy yourself by doing sweet dunks with them and having a laugh.

It’s a fluff piece. Yet there’s something sinister in the way Jenna Lee asks if the game is “bipartisan” because she’s heard that President Obama has some special abilities and wants to know if the right is going to be equally represented. Like, this can’t just be what it is? I know it sounds silly to ask if we should be politicizing a game which inserted politicians into itself, but do we have to make everything about a division of ideology? 

To Moore’s credit, he’s one smooth dude. Nobody can deny that the President has moves on the court. Not even Fox News.
