Political Machine 2012, the latest iteration of Stardock’s Presidential-campaign-as-strategy-game series, assigns numbers from one to ten for each of its candidates stats. I suppose I can live with the game giving Sarah Palin a five for intelligence. At least it’s higher than Michelle Bachman’s intelligence, which is four. That’s nothing if not charitable. I can maybe even live with giving Palin a four in fund-raising. But measly nines for charisma and appearance? That’s just hateful.
