Way to alienate your future voter base, Maine Republicans!

So somehow, World of Warcraft got pulled into the political discourse in the Maine Senate race. It's sad and funny at the same time.

Someone in their campaign is REALLY reaching if they have to use jokes said about a game as a litmus test for the ability to serve in office. Obviously, intelligence isn't required.

She totally won!

"Lackowicz had previously told NBC News that she had had to put her "WoW"-playing on hold because she had been so busy with the campaign. But now?

She says Blizzard sent her copy of the latest "World of Warcraft" expansion — "Mists of Pandaria." It was signed by the entire development team. After she catches up on her sleep, she plans to give it a play."

Win!

Wow lol that was funny in the second article when they were using a lot of her online quotes in the smear. Using terms like "killing", "mutilate" and "assassin" to describe her; all of which are terms specific to a specific spec of a specific class. That's pretty hilarious.
