In the most unsurprising news of the year, Jack Thompson gets angry about some video games.

The games in question? Take-Two’s upcoming Manhunt 2 and Grand Theft Auto IV. “Cotton Top” Thompson is readying a lawsuit (yes, already) against said publisher that would ban the games from being sold.

Now, I am not saying that Grand Theft Auto IV is going to be all petting kittens and hugging grandmothers, but, come on Jack, how about waiting until March 29th like the rest of us before getting all up in arms?

According to Thompson:

[I want to] prevent the sale of two hyper violent video games set to be released this year and sold to anyone under 17 years of age.

That’s great. How about banning all R-rated movies and violent comic books as well? While you’re at it, how about just throwing all of the amendments out the window like you always so easily do with the 1st one? End rant. Sorry. He just really gets my goat.
