(Newser) – The Republican National Committee has yanked an online game from one of its websites after complaints that aspects of the game were anti-Semitic and sexually graphic, reports Politico. The "Obama Card Game (Life Costs Nothing)" was intended to demonstrate how much could be purchased with the $3.4 trillion requested by the president for the national budget. Among items for virtual sale the game links to: a book on Jews and Their Lies, and Cool Jew: The Ultimate Guide for Every Member of the Tribe.  

Players can also purchase escort and bondage services, reports Americablog. “It’s unfortunate that someone would spend the time, and go to great lengths, to abuse and exploit this website feature," said RNC spokeswoman Gail Gitcho. She said the site has been taken down temporarily until "stricter filters" are installed.
