Joust with Bush and Kerry

This is excellent — a version of Joust, played with various political figures in and around the Bush/Kerry race! You can pick either side, but either way, the figures shout hilarious little one-liners that are composited from statements that were actually uttered. I played as Kerry, who flew around saying “War. Hero. Me!”, and at one point had to fight Rush Limbaugh, who babbled about how stoned he was.

Apparently if you play really well, you can get extra powerups including “Patriot Missiles” and “WMD stockpiles”.

(Thanks to Water Cooler Games for this one!)
