US Senate Candidate Slandered for WoW Fandom,
I still remember when politicians could get away with public bigotry against race, adultery, and whatnot. In fact, I’m pretty sure it was only a few weeks ago. But if you’re a fan of World of Warcraft is where the GOP draws the line! Democrat Senate Candidate Colleen Lachowicz has come under fire from the opposition for playing the popular MMORPG. Her boisterous blogging about her Orc Rogue and wanting to “drown Grover Norquist in a bathtub” has provided a sufficient amount of ammunition for the Republicans to sling mud all over her campaign in Maine. “Certainly the fact that she spends so much time on a video game says something about her work ethic and, again, her immaturity,” spoke GOP spokesman David Sorenson.
While the Democrats were quick to rally and point out how GOP Senator Tom Martin was toying around with the state’s public programs, it was surprising to see the Republican senator take the moral high ground and denounce the mudslinging. “Somebody’s personal life is their personal life. What you do in society and in the community is what matters.”
