Hersonville, TN (PressExposure) April 13, 2008 -- If the trends of an Internet game (PeltThePundits.com) are any indication of what is likely to occur in this yearâs Presidential Election, the Democrats have all the momentum and Barack Obama could win Texas and Ohio in next weekâs primaries.
The gameâs creator, Joe Butler, says that the Republican âtargetsâ are being pelted by virtual tomatoes by a 2 to 1 margin. âOver the past three weeks the democrats have out scored the GOP big time, and the tomato stains on Hillary are just phenomenal.â
The game allows a player to play as either a Democrat or Republican and pelt politicians and pundits with a peck of juicy tomatoes. âThe trends have mirrored the pollsââ says Butler, âand in some cases have been a more accurate predictor of primary results than some of those professional polling services. Right now our counter is showing a few interesting trends. Obama is on pace to win Ohio, but Texas appears to be holding steady for Ms. Clinton.â
Perhaps the best element of http://www.PeltThePundits.com is that the politicians and pundits have pretty funny things to say. For instance, John McCain says, âThanks for the tomato you little jerkâ. It is reminiscent of the way he addressed both Hannity and Colmes when he appeared on their FOX TV show. Hillary states that sheâs the only candidate with âhot flashesâ, and Arnold Schwarzenegger repeats lines from Conan the Barbarian. Other prime targets include John Kerry, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Dan Rather, George Bush, Ted Kennedy, Newt Gingrich, Al Gore, Condi Rice, Colin Powell, and of course the countryâs number one conservative talk host Rush Limbaugh.
