He was authorized to do this.
I guess getting a convicted felon to advertise your game gives you street cred.
That's a really stupid tagline. Someone remembered the line about nukes where you're worried about "the man who only wants one" and reversed it. Maybe this is part of a campaign plank to abolish the FAA?
Also, it leads to the rather obvious meme: HIJACK ALL THE AIRPLANES!
sometimes you have a spill a little constitutional milk to save the american pie
I don't recall what this was about.

I can't tell you how good it is to see him old.
I can't tell you how bad it is he's old and being paid for being his pathetic, lick-spittle self--instead of being old and staring wistfully at the en suite steel toilet conveniently located next to his cot.

Pre-order at Gamestop now and get the exclusive "Teflon Mode." You get to evade congressional inquiries, the Commander-in-Chief get Alzheimer's, and a personal secretary who's quick with the paper shredder.
5 for marketing not even under the pretense of "not evil" anymore.

How many Renegade Points do you need to get during the "sell weapons to states who sponsor terrorism" level and "fund murderous thugs" level so you can make it through the "lie your ass off to Congress" level?
I don't know what annoys me more; that a convicted war criminal is promoting a Call of Duty game, or that millions of people are going to run out and blindly buy the exact same game they already own four copies of.
Fuck you, Fox News, Oliver North, and Activision. I hope you all get nuked.
@sosage: People want more of the same genre and themes, not the exact same experience to the point that you feel you just paid $60 for a mod. If that were the case, a lot of gamers would be upset that WOW isn't an isometric 3D turn-based adventure game or even a MUD.
The "it's just a 60 dollar mod" mark being laid out for developers by fans is vague, if not non-existent. How much texturing, modeling, animating, level designing, gameplay designing, mode designing, etc. needs to happen before it is considered a sequel? Is the expectation for them to re-build the entire thing, engine and all, from scratch? Really? Do we expect film sequels to pretty much re-invent the camera?
I call bullshit. The line is conveniently invisible for fans, mostly because of ignorance of what game development entails or an inability to analyze design, which allows claims like "the same exact game" and "60 dollar mod" snark to fly.
