New Yorker magazine (June 14) reports as follows under the headline, “Senator, John McCain calls for emergency blame game on Iraq.”:
“Citing the deteriorating situation in the war-torn nation, Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) on Saturday called for Congress to convene an emergency blame game on Iraq.
McCain said that he hoped Congress would act swiftly to assign blame to a long list of culprits he identified, including President Obama, the Joint Chiefs, the media, and everyone who did not vote for him in the 2008 election.” http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/borowitzreport/2014/06/mccain-calls-for-emergency-blame-game-on-iraq.html
What is “Emergency Blame Game”? Does it have any legal effects, I mean, binding power of the law?
What does the word “game” here represent for? Why is it “game,” not act, initiative, resolution, or campaign?
