Forget his positions on the war and taxes; we want to know where presidential candidate John McCain stands on videogames! Luckily, Lori Ingham caught up with the Republican candidate and asked him the question on everyone's lips:

With the current controversy over video game and media violence, what is your stance on allowing parents to make the decisions for their children on what they can see and watch?

McCain answered:

"Vidja games? You mean like Mimtendo and the Ataris? Listen, back in my day we didn't have videogames, we had a cup and ball, and we liked it!"

Sorry, not really. Ingram doesn't quote McCain exactly, but posts that he said he "felt that parents should be the ones to decide for their kids on a case by case basis. He then did a weird segue into the evils of child pornography from there."

There you have it, John McCain thinks parents should decide what's best for kids, but games remind him of child porn... does he have your vote?
