Chess outrage

In response to MD Senator plays chess during testimony on new state gun-grabbing law:

He’s playing chess during gun control hearings?  A simulation of military combat and political upheaval?  A game the MSNBC brain trust would doubtless condemn as coded racism, given the color of the pieces and board?  A game that promotes religious intolerance by naming one of the pieces after a Christian religious office?  A game in which the fat cat corporate Queen gets to do just about anything she wants, while the 99-percenter pawns are marched off to die in a rich man’s war?  To the fainting couches!
