And now for your weekly update in the world of poly ticks.
Run for your lives, people, because it’s complete chaos out there. In the pre-summer rush to wrangle positive press; current presidential candidates, potential presidential candidates, former presidential candidates, former presidents, and current presidents are viciously competing for track space in a freakish spectacle of careening into walls and spinning out of control like souped- up bumper cars during a power surge. To say it is not a pretty sight is similar to intimating that encountering hot oily transmission parts in the bowels of your sleeping bag is not an optimal proposition. (more…)
Might want to stuff your pants pockets with sand and hang onto the rail as the ship of state lurches towards the distinct possibility that the election to next command the helm will be between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton. The brother versus the wife. Sounds like a probate lawsuit.
This promises to be a fabulous development for comedians everywhere, precipitating the resurrection of all our 1992 Bush/ Clinton material. It’s the green thing to do. Recycling meets nostalgia. Together again for the very first time. A rematch by proxy. Now, if only we could coax Ross Perot back into the fray. (more…)
Koch Bros Enlist Rachel Maddow To Lead Their New Mid Term SuperPAC
Wichita, Kansas (Busher Report) David and Charles Koch formed a new SuperPAc called the Freedom Partners Action Fund and immediately appointed MSNBC talking head Rachel Maddow to lead the distribution of SuperPac’s political funds.
“We feel Ms. Maddow’s knowledge of our, (The Koch Bros) true intentions surpasses no one. She’s a clear, crisp articulate communicator of unrealistic theories involving myself and my brother David. Who better to help us influence the future of our political operations to benefit our shareholders and the uber rich than Rachel?,” explained Charles Koch.
“Everyone knows I love the Koch Bros! I mention them all the time on my show. I will do anything and I really mean anything to help them achieve their objectives. As long as their shareholders and bank accounts are happy, than I am happy.

As a former New York City resident, the HarryBalls.com team was a little bummed when Mayor Bloomberg ignored the voters wishes by running for a third term. We were even more disappointed with A Rod came out as a steriod using cheating ahole. (more…)

React Games released Presidents Run, a side scrolling platform game allowing you to experience the life of a presidential candidate crisscrossing the country collecting votes. Power Ups include power-shoes which may make you the most powerful leader on earth. Gamers can download the Presidential Run to their IPhones, IPads, and IPod Touch. President’s Run seems like a pretty standard platform running style game without offering any super earth shattering.
Here’s React Games Description of President’s Run:
“From Utah-based independent developer, ‘React! Games’, comes a brilliantly designed distance runner in which you choose your favorite presidential candidate, and run across the country collecting as many votes as you can! To help you along the way, upgrades such as power-shoes are available that give you special abilities to help you become the most powerful man on earth!
“We wanted to give people a fun and engaging way to participate in the race to the White House,” said Chad Lee, Managing Director of React! Games. “Not only will they compete against friends to see who can make it farthest, but every mile they run and vote they collect will be reflected at www.presidentsrun.com. We think ‘Presidents Run’ can predict the results of this year’s election.”
Published by 6waves and just released on iOS for the Apple iPhone®, Apple iPod Touch®, and the Apple iPad®, as well as in the Android™ Play Store, ‘Presidents Run’ will be updated by the developer on a bi-monthly basis with new features, characters, backgrounds, items, shoes and accessories. Available as a FREE download, this awesome title will have live updates (online) featuring cumulative distance and vote totals for each candidate in the game. ‘Presidents Run’ is a unique twist on the American Idol™ type of call-in for your favorite contestant but instead of calling in, you simply play the game. Each play session records your distance and votes earned per candidate, and upload those numbers online – the more you play, the farther your favorite candidate gets. Players are encouraged to keep a close eye on the games Facebook & Twitter as weekly challenges and prizes will be posted and drawn. To kick things off, React! Games is sponsoring a sweepstakes on the game’s website www.presidentsrun.com where you can enter to win a free Apple iPad® and other prizes.
“We see ‘Presidents Run’ as a way for players to show support for their favorite candidate, and if that happens to be Zombie George Washington, then all the more fun!” continues Casey Spencer, Producer at React! Games.”
