OP  10/04/12 5:40:23 PM#1

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/04/world-of-warcraft-colleen-lachowicz_n_1939720.html?utm_hp_ref=elections-2012

"The Maine Republican Party is attacking a Democratic candidate for State Senate over her "time-consuming double life" as a player of World of Warcraft.

Colleen Lachowicz is running as a Democratic State Senate candidate in Waterville, Maine. David Sorensen, the communications director for the local GOP, said, "Today, Colleen is playing at level 85 -- the highest level one can attain. Studies have found that the average World of Warcraft gamer is 28 and spends 22.7 hours per week playing."

"Her character in the game is called 'Santiaga,' an Orc Assassin Rogue, and Lachowicz lives vicariously through her, making comments about World of Warcraft and other topics on the liberal blog, The Daily Kos," said Sorensen. The Maine GOP rounded up her comments on the site.


So I’m a level 68 orc rogue girl. That means I stab things ... a lot. Who would have thought that a peace-lovin’, social worker and democrat would enjoy that?!"
"Yes, I am seriously slacking off at work today. And I called my congresswoman’s office today. And told them I would probably be calling everyday."
"I spent my day leveling my alt -- an undead warlock…"
"I’m lazy, remember?"
"Now if you’ll excuse me, I may have to go and hunt down Grover Norquist and drown him in my bath tub."
"Or my dream from election season last year where John McCain sat at my childhood dining room table and I reamed him a new a**hole about Sarah Palin."

Colleen Lachowicz responded to the release in a statement. “I think it's weird that I'm being targeted for playing online games. Apparently I'm in good company since there are 183 million other Americans who also enjoy online games. What's next? Will I be ostracized for playing Angry Birds or Words with Friends? If so, guilty as charged!" she said."

I think her reaction should be a lot stronger than this.

 

What a person does in their free time (as long as it is not illegal) is really nobody's business.

i've heard maine being called a battleground state, but i didnt realize the battleground was warsong gulch!!

 

i hope this candidate wins.  honestly playing games is nothing to be ashamed of and CERTAINLY nothing to be attacked for.  i dont like to be very political at all but these attacks sure seem like fearmongering to the religious folks to me.

 

I wonder howmany other pols play MMO and dont say anything about it.  I know i was shocked when i learned that Vile Rat, who i have fought against for months in eve was an honest to god big wig in the american embassy! (rip man.)  I could see republicans and democrats playing in the "red vs blue" ongoing wars in eve.  i mean, given the name and all.

 

Itch

I think it is a valid point. I personally enjoy mmorpg games but i am also not running for a position that typically tries to tell ppl how to live their lives.

That's right, politicians aren't allowed have fun.

Forget the other, bigger, issues going on, we gotta focus on someone playing a video game. Waste of time I say.

So what if she plays a MMO? Everyone has to have some fun in their life. Besides it's not like politicians actually do any work. This way she has time to play the game.

You know what's fun about chaos? I do, but I won't tell.

So.. they're fine belittling her for playing WoW.

 

Someone should point out the other famous, lazy gamer in the news lately... who was it.. hmm.. oh right...

 

Vile Rat from EvE.

 

Sean Smith... an Air Force Veteran who also "wasted time" playing online games.  Sadly he wasn't wasting enough time because he died on the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.

Plus, people should be judged by the content of their character... Horde, really?

He is probably a closet alliance noob and is all butthurt because she ganked the hell out of him.  Since he can't cry on the forums he'll make it personal.  What a childish loser.

Naw, he is probably an old school MMO'r, you know they will attack people who play WoW about anything.

Nah, being a gamer is a choice, genetics isnt.

But it still is really silly, after so many years of computers and so many millions of gamers complaining that a politician is a gamer is counterproductive. We have votes as well you know (well, I dont have in US myself but I have at home).
