En soulignant et en ajoutant

Dans son article sur l'Anti-Culte de la Personnalité (où les Conservateurs n'attaquent pas le Président américain pour des raisons objectives ou compréhensibles mais pour n'importe quel prétexte), Taibbi remarque :

“Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year.” (Emphasis added.)

This is the first time I’ve ever seen someone write “emphasis added” and mean it in a literal sense — they literally added the emphasized passage.

Hélas, ensuite, il fait du role-player-bashing, comme le faisait l'équipe de campagne de John McCain.

It allows people to transfer real anxiety and fear and anger over real problems into this fictional arena where the only thing to worry about is the presidency of this evil black Wizard of Oz-like figure who lies about his birthplace and has secret plans to institute a clearly-will-never-happen program of national servitude.If you’re in that place mentally, you might as well be playing Dungeons and Dragons.
