Last night, as he delivered a stirring primary victory speech, Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama took time out from inspiring a generation to diss videogames.

"We’re going to have to parent better, and turn off the television set, and put the video games away, and instill a sense of excellence in our children, and that’s going to take some time."

Our initial reaction was like, "WTF? Games no make dumb! Talking suit man wrong!"

But then we calmed down and, as Feed writer bleahy pointed out: Obama was only talking about kids putting down the the vidja games and the super-Imtendos. As far as we're concerned, the fewer 12 year-olds playing Halo, the happier we are.

When Obama is president, we'll live in a world where noobs won't play Halo because they'll be busy pursuing a sense of excellence. Also: Free candy!

Barack in '08, baby! Ban the nubs!
