...have we outgrown the gamer stigma to the point where someone who plays an MMORPG can be elected to high political office?The answer, it seems, is a resounding yes!—as Colleen won her senate seat last night.
Kewl. Now maybe she can lead a raid against the GOP.
Why? They don't have any good drops... Specially not for a Rogue...
Lux, congratulations, you just described the entire GOP general practice. They can't/couldn't accuse anyone of any of that because it would be all, kettle, pot, black.
No. It is NOT the entire practice of the GOP to do this.. it IS the practice of the Party leadership. Please remember that there is a difference.
I meant the party, not the constituents.
SOME of the elected members aren't total tools either. yeah.. I'm a RINO Republican these days. (Republican In Name Only.. according the the Tea Partiers who hijacked my party0
Yup. It's likely going to stay that way until more of the stodgy, old men at the top die off, unless someone comes out of the centrist demographic with enough charisma to pull in the saner Republicans. I still think it's a schism waiting to happen.

Sorry man, as long as the Tea Party nuts are in charge, they ARE the GOP.You have my sincerest sympathies, though. It sucks when your ideology is under attack by the people who used to represent you.
This is one of the reasons George Washington warned against the formation of political parties. He believed that factionism would eventually tear the country apart and lead to divides that would create a political climate unfavorable for anyone in the country.
Given the way candidates act, we'd do this anyway. Adams and Jefferson gave birth to negative campaigning, but genuine disagreements of policies and a shared desire to gain the Presidency were instrumental in creating a negative atmosphere and us versus them mentality.
You play golf how dare you! You rich time wasting scum! Ya just about the same thing.
Except golf courses have exclusive memberships. Blizzard only cares if you can fork over whatsit - $20 a month? And that's only if you want to go over a certain level, if I remember right.
