[geek][politics] When in (political) doubt...

...borrow a move from the culture war playbook. Joe Lieberman, Hillary Clinton & Dick Durbin want the CDC to study the latest public health menace - video games:
Long time foes of the video game industry persuade Senate committee to approve a sweeping study of the "impact of electronic media use" to be organized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC.
Because, as we all know, the CDC has nothing better to worry about - and as one of the (alas, all too rare) lucid posters on gamedev.net observed, it'll be about as well spent as the $100 million spent on evaluating the power of prayer over medical outcomes. And if anyone was wondering why I don't trust the DLC and their ilk, just take a look at the cosponsors of the bill.
