You know what’s fun? Video games. You know what’s not as much fun? Politics. But what if the two combined? You end up with 2014 Mission Majority, an online game designed by the National Republican Senatorial Committee to push for a GOP Senate majority this fall.
Here’s how the NRSC describes its attempt at “a bit of fun” this election season: “The game features a patriotic elephant named Giopi, who happens to be one of the GOP’s best volunteers. Giopi leads you through four difficult levels, with a focus on one goal: winning a Republican Senate majority.”
There are two categories of baddies in the game: Taxers and Mudslingers. And fun fact, if you stomp on either of them, you get to hear one of several Democratic gaffes, including Hillary Clinton‘s “what difference, at this point, does it make?” and President Obama‘s “if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.”
And by the way, whereas Mario games have a very strict time limit, you have exactly 9999 seconds to beat each level. That’s over two hours.
You can play the game here. (Though it should be noted you either need to provide your email address or connect through Facebook or Google to play.)
