If Obama had been elected by Germans he had scored a 'socialist'-like 95% result.
This is because he is a socialist, of course. And because his opponent was one of the most ridiculous candidates I can even imagine. Even his own party is very happy right now that they can finally stop pretending to like him (let alone pretending to know what he actually wanted to do with his presidency).
Of course, the US are doomed now. Soon the government will not only have the right to put you into prison because you might be a terrorist, but they will now take your money, too!
As for MMOs, I might be forced into WoW again. As a level 20 warrior who does quests (at least I'm human!). She thinks it's boring, but still wants to play it (even after I've shown her the South Park episode). Obviously, Blizzard did something right .. I just don't know what !?
PS: If you want to read a strong German opinion on the state of the US, have fun: "Divided States of America - Notes on the Decline of a Great Nation".
I think it's similar to all the US articles on the decline of Europe ;).
