It's official: France is now a video game. A good idea, poorly executed, from the sounds of it.
Virtual government is the future. I think we should scrap the whole lame, sucky diebold voting machine idea as being way too gigapet, and move to a more robust gaming platform. I'd like to see elections decided in a format resembling a combination of American Idol, SimCity, and Ender's Game. Let the politicians compete for by running a virtual country, populated by voter/players.
