This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Dude - EVERY Presidential candidate is a potential target.


True. It is pathetic that in 2008, Americans are trying to a) kill a Presidential candidate and b) do so because he's Black.

Dude - EVERY Presidential candidate is a potential target. Just this got publicity. I bet there are all sorts of half-baked plots and attempts stopped every 4 years during election years.

I'd be curious to know about others.  The only attempts on a presidential candidate that I know of were the assassination of George Wallace in 1972, of Robert Kennedy in 1968, and a failed attempt on FDR in 1933.  Not saying that there weren't others - I just haven't heard of them.

Failed attempt on Reagan...



EDIT::: Sorry, didn't notice you meant on Candidates...
For you the day you found a minor error in a Post by Spike and forced him to admit it, it was the greatest day of your internet life.  For me it was... Tuesday.

For the curious: Apparently, in person, I sound exactly like the Youtube Character The Nostalgia Critic.   I have no words.
