    Thinking bout Chess
    I'm from Germany - we don't use "capture" an opponents chesspiece but "beat" (like beating another player in sports/games - but same word as beating a ball with a baseball-bat or beat someone with your fist in his face)
    The "Queen" in german is called dame/lady

    So i imagine a headline, where a german politican "beats ladies every friday evening in a club" or a quote out of context with him saying "i have beaten his lady"

    She's only level 68, because if you check the date of the quote it's 2009. It later states that she is currently level 85.

    The sad thing, aside from the botching of and misinforming of thousands of individuals as to the meaning of 'DPS', is that this will undoubtedly work to smear her campaign. There are many closed-minded individuals who understand nothing of video games, even though there are millions who play games like CoD/WoW. To us she seems like a normal casual player, but to the unsuspecting masses/target of this smearing, she'd look like a borderline psychopath and obsessed gamer who they wouldn't want to trust to run their city...

    GOP really stooped extremely low to come out with this. Is her playing WoW all they can find to attack her on? If so, this weeps of desperation.

    Her comments are her just trying to be humorous. Stuff she said just to start a conversation and seem friendly with other fellow WoW players.

    Bashing her because she enjoys WoW is equivalent to smearing a fellow candidate because they play football. A "sports game" which one can easily argue promotes primitive behavior of attacking and hurting your opponent to win, in real life.

    This is just ludicrous. If I lived in Maine I would vote for her in a heartbeat, and I personally don't care for democrats either.

    Did it occur to anyone who made this it might backfire?

    Here is what the local paper has on it:

    Atricle

    I live in Maine and never really knew who she was. May, or may not, have voted for her. Now, I dug into more of what she is about, and she has my vote Thanks to the Republican party

    Why not? Aren't Republicans all rich people who don't care for the people and wish only to plunge the country as far towards a Dictatorship as possible?

    Not...that's only the Republican Party


    Republicans "traditionally" reprsented smaller government. The "GTFO of my Buisness" Party.

    Put it this way...Today, Ronald Regan (who Republicans claim was the best Republican president) would be considered too liberal.

    I'm now interested to see how this plays out. The good news for the guy attacking is there's a month to go so he has time to do some damage control and some people might forget about it come voting day.

    Thank you OP, I posted this to my guild and the article itself.. Seriously everyone laughed at how stupid the whole 'campaign' is. What a joke some politicians are and what great lengths they go to just to slander the opposition. Regardless of their views. Disgusting.

    But Liberal is not bad... o_0

    Personally I prefer Democrats, because they are the closest ones to Socialism.

    Neo-conservative is a different beast and is more focused around protecting america from the scary world outside. If they're your knights in shining armor then you'll vote for them, and they're very big on promoting the black & white good vs evil mentality (ironically they are all very grey men hohoho). Most if not all post Regan republican candidates and presidents have been on this side of the fence.

    But yeah this a pretty crazy point to run a campaign on and only goes to show that society will be much better when the older 50% of humanity has pegged it. Utterly mental weirdos that people actually vote for.

    Although, female orc, I approve.
