Al Gore II?

Illinois Governator Rodney "Rod" Blagojevich has jumped on the "video games are harming our children" bandwagon. Behold!

I'll usurp a quote from columnist Neil Steinburg that I think is appropriate:

"Sure, pot can lead to hard drugs, but so can the Stevenson Expressway, and we still let people drive it."

If a video game (or movie or television show or music video) leads a kid to violence, the kid was already screwed up and was just looking for an excuse. And blaming the media for the problem is the parents also looking for an excuse for their own failures.
