    Lightbulb World of Warcraft Character Becomes Campaign Issue [Slashdot]



    Dr. Gamera writes "Maine state senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz plays World of Warcraft. The opposing party in Maine has issued a press release attacking her for her Level 85 Orc Assassination Rogue. From the article: 'In an unusual press release issued Thursday, the Maine GOP attacked Lachowicz for a “bizarre double life” in which she’s a devotee of the hugely popular online role-playing game World of Warcraft. In the game, she’s “Santiaga,” an "orc assassination rogue" with green skin, fangs, a Mohawk and pointy ears.' Her incumbent, much to his credit, rejects the attack as 'mudslinging politics.'"

    Wow that's fairly low AND entirely stupid ripping on an online video game persona as a reason not to vote for someone. That GOP toolbox makes me feel ashamed of the party in that state if that's the best they can do with few weeks left to go.

    I've been reading that this has actually bought her a few extra votes here or there, particularly because she's a Horde player. So, you know, FOR THE HORDE.
