    Actually if they claim that the add was intended as parody they could, conceivably, get away with it. They could also claim fair use, though that might be harder to prove.

    If i lived in Maine this would be what would seal the deal and making sure i did vote for her. Just the typical GOP tactic of she/he isnt one of us like they use against Obama for years now.

    Guess what GOP there are more than 68+ yr old Grumpy Old People out there ( most of them grumpy old white men but thats another story)

    Part of the reason I separate my real life and online life.

    Still, the campaign should be what they've done in goverment, not gaming in their free time. As long as what they do video game wise doesn't effect their job, then why should it matter?

    The issue isn't that it matters, man, the issue is that this will sway some votes. Look at the highlighting, and then read it forgetting everything you know about context and wow speak, and they are trying to make her sound like she's a vicious person. We all know it's just as stupid as trying to portray a Pac Man player as a glutton because he has a strategy for "eating the most without getting hurt", but to a random person on the street, they are trying to portray her as barely constrained and violent, in the same way as my fictitious Pac Man quote would portray someone as a glutton. If your rogue doesn't poison and stab you are letting your friends down, because that's what you do to play as a rogue.


    Still, future lessons: Roll resto druid!

    That's hilarious; I hope she slaughters this. Pun unintended. Maybe.

    I find this attack advert incredibly offensive. References to it being "imaginary" and "a fantasy world" aren't true. There is nothing imaginary about the game. It exists, it may exist as a series of ones and zeroes, but there is nothing imagined about it. "Double life" also irks me. I think this has been worded purposefully to suggest there is something mentally wrong with the people who play WoW.
    Did you like the above post? How about sending me a dollar? I'd have adverts here but apparently that'd break ToS.

    In politics, context hardly matters. Candidates on both sides take each other's words out of context. But when people see things she's said in game.. It could speak a lot to somebody character when they aren't normally in the public spotlight.

    Sadly, in American politics this happens all too often. If you run for any type of office fully expect your opponent will pull all your skeletons from your past into the open in attempt to turn voters against you. The worst part is it works. As the saying goes you could win or you can make your opponent lose.

    A political meme. Like with made up ratings for all the candidates...

    I know Santiaga, I have played with her, and she is a warmhearted person, has worked very hard as a social worker for years, and has rarely played over the last two years, certainly not much at all since early 2011. This flyer is filled with lies about her and about gamers generally. Those remarks are all years old, taken out of context, and were meant to be funny, flippant and irreverant, just like Santiaga herself. All I can say is the desperation is palpable from the Maine Republicans if this is the best they could do - and I have heard from some Republicans who are disgusted by this kind of attack as well.

    Deaths per second that sounds so awesome i love how old people always gets gamer abbreviations wrong

    I love how they highlight that she specs in assassination just to make it sound so badass when i bet she main specs as sub lol

    Also would it have sounded bad if she played a holy priest or a prot pally who loves to heal team mates or take damage

    This is so gonna backfire on the idiot who brought it up

    In the following decades, when today's youth is starting to apply for positions of high power it'll be a whole lot easier to dig dirt on them. Facebook, twitter, and whatever other social medias pop up will record their youthful mistakes.
    I don't hate you. I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the GOP representatives of my state.

    I'm embarrassed.

    And Skyrim players as well.

    I've played Skyrim occasionally when angry for the simple fact that I could kill people and not go to jail.

    I can separate fact from fiction. I know that the horrific acts of violence I commit in Skyrim would be terrible things to do in the real world. That's why its a fantasy.

    As long as you can separate fact from fiction, there's no harm in blowing off steam by killing truckloads of fictional people (or murlocs, or virmen, or whatever)

    Seriously, who the HELL cares what she does in her off-time? I like playing Mario games - does that mean if I run for office I'll have pro-turtle lobbyists on my ass? If she played a paladin, would they praise her for her sense of duty and religious devotion?

    If her playing an orc rogue is the worst dirt her opponents can dig up, then she's got this election nailed down.
    Exactly. obamas a muslim. What does that have to do with him being able to do his job as president. Nothing. His failure as president has nothing to do with his religion.
