The problem is not the Obama administration. The problem is an America that would elect the Obama administration. Though, as you point out, a McCain administration would have been a symptom of the same problem.

Following on from your concluding thoughts, perhaps my favourite video game of all time is Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. While I expect I will get round to trying one of the newer iterations of Civilization, Alpha Centauri had the game engine and playability but something more. This is the only game I have played that captures something of the grandeur of Frank Herbert's work; despite its different setting, it is much more faithful to Herbert's ideas about cultural ecology and competing forms of social adaptation to an hostile environment than any of the feeble attempts to translate Dune into video game form. I almost always play as the Lord's Believers and make it my mission to exterminate the indigenous flora/fauna, kill or convert rival colonies and make it a special duty to hunt down the United Nations Peacekeeping Forces first.
