Herman Cain made the news last week when he decided to end his run for the Republican nomination for President. What made it news worthy for you NerdBastards was Cain’s use of a popular nerdy card and video game Pokemon in his farewell speech. Cain said:
“Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, it’s never easy when there is so much on the line. But you and I can make a difference.”
Straight out of the Donna Summer’s song that closed every episode of Pokemon. Other politicians might want to pay attention to the amount of press and Internet attention given to this little quote and it’s use by Cain. To help them out NerdBastards decided to take a look at the top ten video game quotes that every politician should have in their back pocket just in case they need to play the Video Game Card.
Included after the list is The Daily Show piece done on the Cain use of the Pokemon quote. As always John Stewart and his writing staff really bring the humor to the situation.
Tell NerdBastards what your favorite and top pick is in the comments section below. If you have another quote that you think beats these then let us know, in the comments section below.

“You can pick the game, but you can’t change the rules.”

“Snake. We’re not tools of the government, or anyone else. Fighting was the only thing… the only thing I was good at. But… at least I always fought for what I believed in.”
Gray Fox, Metal Gear Solid
“Wishes can come true. But not if you just wait for miracles. Miracles are things we make for ourselves. Here, and now.”

You know, I can really do the whole “are you lonely” gig for the beginning of this but this is just sad. GameCrush is an adult social network that lets gamers be “players” and play either a six minute flash game or 360 multiplayer game (Gears of War 2, Halo 3, COD: Modern Warfare 2, and Grand Theft Auto 4) with a “hot” girl gamer for ten minutes for the price of $8.25. Apparently you have the choice to play a “flirty” game or a “dirty” game, thus why this is for 18 year olds and up. Do some people still really think gamers are the sad bunch of folks from long ago. I think it has changed, and not to mention the four games above, most people that play those aren’t the sad lonely gamers the site probably believes to be. All I can see is that some people will be using this site as a joke. Will there be some sad man paying for this dumb service, yes there will be, and that’s whats going to upset me. Maybe I just want to believe gamers now aren’t too sad to pay for this.
If they really want to do a service for gamers, lets test their focus skill by having these gamers try to focus an online round while getting a blowjob, that would be better than this service and truly test if your a “player.” Anyways, checking out the site is no good since they have gotten so much traffic that its down. Kotaku has a gallery of the potential girl gamers you can face, and I’m sure they just picked out the ones that would make some people cringe at the idea of this. What do ya’ll think? You think this service will sell or is this just a stupid thing that will probably die in a few months?
