Palin and Biden — the gloves are now off! Just in time for the Vice Presidential debate, Atom.com, a division of MTVN Entertainment Group, a unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B,) has added the Vice Presidential candidates to the fight card of its hugely successful online game, “Kung-Fu Election” at www.kungfuelection.com. Palin’s weapon of choice is a hockey stick while Biden swings a big sword. “Kung-Fu Election” lets pundits and voters alike soothe their election-induced anxieties and put some punch behind their political convictions.
“Kung-Fu Election” invites players to choose their favorite politicians and take them into battle against a political enemy. The Democratic fighters include Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Bill Richardson. Representing the Republican party are John McCain, Sarah Palin, Cindy McCain, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and Mike Huckabee. The politicians and their spouses duke it out with an array of special weapons and Kung-Fu moves that will leave only one man — er, person — standing. (Here’s a hint: watch out for Palin’s secret weapon — a shotgun!)
Atom.com’s “Kung-Fu Election” microsite: www.kungfuelection.com. To date, nearly four million users have played “Kung-Fu Election.”
