If for some reason you are standing up while surfing the Internet, you should go ahead and sit down right now.  Because this is probably the coolest thing you’ll ever see.

Cashing in on election fever, EA today announced that, as part of an upcoming update for Mercenaries 2, both Sarah Palin and Barack Obama will be made available as playable characters. Palin in her trademark red jacket and hair, Obama in his trademark…suit. Sounds a little nutty, but seeing Obama punch a swarthy Venezuelan in the face is a lot funnier than you can probably imagine.

    Obama in Mercenaries?

    “Oh no you didn’t!”

    Mr. Griffin you need to come write for my site after this election is over. I can actually pay you money to do so (although not a lot).

    Emmett, I’m currently weighing post-election offers from Politico, CNN, and MSNBC, but if none of those pan out, I’ll definitely take a look at SBD. And you can pay me in lopsided fantasy football trades.
