Videogames are weird, man

Republicans are attacking a Democrat running for office in Maine for playing World of Warcraft.

Maine state Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz is not a witch.

She is, however, an orc assassination rogue with a potty mouth — and the Maine Republican Party believes that disqualifies her from public office.

John Cole, over at Balloon-Juice, happens to be in the same guild as Colleen and posted about it yesterday. When I came into work this morning, the story had sparked a spam thread here at Carbine, as about a quarter of this company used to work at Blizzard. Anyway, one of the artists here (Jon Dunsmoor) came up with this, and I asked permission to post it here, which he graciously gave.

Awesome. I love working with talented people.

You can donate to Colleen here.
