Nazi card

Does this mean I'm a conservative now? I just was told that I'm "...just like the cretins who believe that Hitler was a smart person..." ~ JonG ~ 20:25, 9 July 2011 (EDT)

Suggestion: retitle it, the Godwin card. Rob Smith 20:30, 9 July 2011 (EDT)
This car confuses me. Comparing people to Nazis is a typical tactic of Nazis? Doesn't this card Godwin itself? BobJ 02:10, 10 July 2011 (EDT)
I've also noticed several instances on this website where things are compared to Hitler. Does that mean that they were written by a liberal, or that this article's introduction is wrong - by saying that "Political cards are tactics used by liberals in politics, the media, and other adversarial settings". It would appear as if conservatives (or should that be user:conservative?) uses them too. TracyS 08:36, 11 July 2011 (EDT)
It depends. This site mostly cites accurate resemblances to Hitler, whereas liberals try to make anything they don't like look like Hitler. NickP 00:32, 15 July 2011 (EDT)

Homophobia Card / Anti-gay Card

Are these duplicates or does someone have distinct meanings in mind? I really like the concept of this article, by the way. --AaronT 20:59, 9 July 2011 (EDT)

We can probably get two entries out of these, largely cause CP's homophobia is so well written, and secondly, the anti-gay item can be used to separate the behavior from sinner. Rob Smith 21:05, 9 July 2011 (EDT)

Assigning a card

I was thinking we can assign a playing card to each political cards in order to make them more memorable. For example, millionaires and billionaires card can be K♦ (King of Diamonds). The over-sensitive card can be 8♥ (Eight of Hearts). The value of the playing card can represent how valuable the political card is. Does that sound like a good idea? --MatthewQ 18:25, 15 July 2011 (EDT)

That would take a lot of work. The reference to actual playing cards is somewhat of a joke, and we don't need to expand on it so seriously :P . NickP 18:27, 15 July 2011 (EDT)
I was thinking along those lines, too. Do we, for example, put global warming denier in one suit, and anti-environment in another (IOW space them apart by 13), or group them more by subject for contiguity and readability. Proabaly the later. Rob Smith 19:29, 15 July 2011 (EDT)

49 cards

There are 49 completed by my count, with the Elite card, oversenstive, a Poe's card nearly done. Let's get our heads together and get this to the Featured article. Rob Smith 21:00, 11 August 2011 (EDT)

I make it 55, which is enough for a full deck with jokers and a bridge scoring card. An idea: it might be fun to split them into four suits, eg economics (diamonds), religion (hearts), bullying (clubs) and dirt-digging (spades). I don't know if that would work especially neatly, but some form of categorisation might improve on simply having one long list, anyway.--CPalmer 08:37, 12 August 2011 (EDT)
