A three-person software company in Madison, Wis., called ZenSoft, has created an on-line video game that pays tribute to President-elect Obama by putting him in "Super Obama World," which bears more than a passing resemblance to the 1990s game Super Mario World. In the first installment, Obama is in Alaska, where he scores points by collecting American flag lapel pins, and battling hockey moms, Russian soldiers, Gov. Sarah Palin, oil company executives, and pigs and pitbulls wearing lipstick.
Stores where Palin’s pricey wardrobe originated — Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s and Neiman Marcus — are in the background.
And yes, there’s a Bridge to Nowhere.
The gamemakers say future installments will put Obama in Illinois, Arizona, and Washington, D.C. – jpt
