Thompson Watch™

Jack Thompson Tried To Arrest My Boss on Game Revolution has a little follow-up on the controversial attorney's recent claim that he's received death threats (story), pointing out the AIM Icon that apparently comprises one of these threats. Thanks Frans.

That's a death threat?!

How many thousand people do you think are now using that buddy icon? I would if I didn't have business contacts on my list (and that only stops me because they wouldn't understand it, not because they'd object to the idea).

I must say, I'm disappointed with the end of that article. I'd expected another sentence tying in with the Sims 2 mention above it. See if you can get what reference I mean

Hehehe. You know, actually the guy is a genius. An otherwise completely unknown lawyer is making a name for himself by blindly and pointlessly attacking anything and anyone he percieves as morally questionable, as long as he thinks doing so will garner him headlines. How long before the guy announces his candidacy for governor or congressman?

Just further proof that Florida is the Freakshow state! (I live in Tampa, BTW, so I can attest to that personally!)

P.S. When I called him a genius I was being sarcastic, in case anyone has any doubts!

I'm honestly wondering what's up with this guy. Either he's being spoofed by various people (that would hardly be new, although spoofing someone while filing an FBI or police report falls under the "brain dead" classification) or he's a complete loon that's fooled a lot of people (namely the mass media).

The various interactions that have allegedly occurred with VG Cats, Game Revolution, et. al. pretty clearly paint a picture of someone who is just not with the rest of reality. But everytime he's on TV, in press, etc. he comes off as sane and reasonably intelligent -- I certainly do not agree with his beliefs or conclusions, and he certainly uses invalid arguments to make his case (as several judges have shown), but these two faces are pretty drastically different.

Yes, you can talk about media conspiracy until you're blue in the face, but hardly all of the TV shows have been complementary toward him -- if this stuff was true it'd be pretty easy to show how loony he is. Which is why I come back to wondering if there's a lot of people out there spoofing his identity to make him look loonier than he really is (again, since I whole-heartedly disagree with his beliefs I already think he's out there... it's just a matter of whether it's the moon or another galaxy).

With each Thompson story its becoming more and more apparent that he's going to have a public meltdown at some point.

and I'll be sitting right there with my popcorn.

Oh yeah...

edit: I encourage him to continue screaming at the top of his lungs, so more people will see him for the clueless fuckhead he is...

I want to see him and Bill O'Reilly go at it.
I can only imagine Bill would rip him a new one.

O'Reilly infuriates me, but I would order an O'Reilly vs. Thompson match on pay-per-view... Unfortunately it can't happen, too many O'Reilly viewers fear videogames.

Both political parties have seized on this opportunity to make themselves look good, and unfortunately it seems to be working.

Anyway, I propose a Sharpton/Schwartzenegger ticket for 2008.
