Trick-or-treat at the (online) White House

Wondering what kind of candy the White House is handing out on Halloween this year? Tuesday night on The Tonight Show, President Obama hinted that the first lady leaned toward “fruit and raisins in a bag.” But the conservative nonprofit ForAmerica, founded by Media Research Center chief Brent Bozell, has an even scarier idea.

A new Facebook game hosted by ForAmerica has the White House doling out pun-ridden tricks instead of sweet treats.

Players are led to the White House door and greeted by either President Obama, Vice-President Biden, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, or an “Occupy Wall Street” protester.

Each door-greeter hands out a different treat — the list includes “job breakers” and “fixie dust” — each one an anti-Obama-administration joke illustrating conservatives’ policy differences with the president.

Through its 1.5 million Facebook fans, ForAmerica has perhaps the largest online footprint of all the influential conservative advocacy groups. Bozell launched the organization in the fall of 2010 before the midterm election.

“ForAmerica is always looking for new tools and new ways to expose the cluelessness of the Obama administration and the sycophants that follow it blindly,” Executive Director David  Bozell told The Daily Caller in an email.

This is not ForAmerica’s first foray into the Facebook game market. On Valentine’s Day, fans got a pun-ridden card. And there’s also “Angry Voters,” an Angry Birds knockoff that involves “using tea crates to hit the pigs that are spending your tax dollars!”
