Hey, Politicians: This Is How You Get the Gamer Vote

My interest in politics can best be compared to my feelings toward cat ownership: It’s an important institution for cat lovers but I add no value to it by haphazardly talking about how great (or not great) cats are, offering grooming tips or spending money on Whiskas.

Anyway, remember Contra? Go to French politician Francois Bayrou’s website and, once it’s loaded up, enter the infamous Konami code you used when you played Contra.

Not that you need a refresher, but it’s:

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A

Et voila: Awesomeness. I have no idea what this guy stands for, but I support it. Unless he’s a monster — then I’d like to flip-flop. See? I’m adding no value.
