You have a "choice!"

If you have a BEEFY computer, you can hurl at them BOTH!
If you're really pissed, try DUMP mode!

Toggle Sound OFF/ON


Click the mouse to hurl a chair! A collection of timely Twitter hashtags will rain down on the DNC/RNC. When a tag collides with either party, a tweet, using that tag as source, will be generatively composed and posted to Twitter.

Sentences generated by The Public Enemy are displayed in the feedback panel. You can zoom in and out with a scroll wheel and rotate with click/drag. IF you have a BEEFY computer, pressing "1" will change to DUMP mode. The number of chairs dumped is proportional to the popularity (see number displayed) of the tag selected by clicking a bubble. This can be memory intensive -- you have been warned :-)
