Play the Anti-Meg Whitman Video Game

It isn't Final Fantasy XIII -- don't worry, it won't "brick" your computer. But a clever videogame from the California Labor Federation is alleging that Republican gubernatorial nominee Meg Whitman will indeed "brick" the state.

Essentially it's just the ninja star-throwing segments of Shinobi -- except you're Meg Whitman, firing predominately women and minorities from the many companies she's worked at (and, it seems, fired lotsa women and minorities). Click below to play Wall Street Whitman.



By the way, if you enjoy videogames reminiscent of  1980s fare -- and now humorously antiquated -- being used for marketing purposes, you'll love the work being done by the city's Department of the Environment.
