Gaming Politics: Will Playing Call of Duty Make You Vote Romney?

PureSophistry examines the pitfalls and pleasures associated with Gaming and Politics, siting directly the case of one candidate being attacked for comments she made while playing World of Warcraft-

"Fast forward to the Fall of 2012. Lachowicz has been involved in Maine politics for some time and has decided to run as a Democratic Candidate for the State Senate. The Maine Republican Party has dug up a number of Colleen’s old forum posts and in game messages and have launched a campaign at www.colleensworld.com, ridiculing and attacking Lachowicz for her time in World of Warcraft and many of the statements connected to her through her guild and gameplay."

Romney is a draft dodger, who things the Us Army is the world police force. He also changes positions more done he does underwear (He is a liar). The Mormons should kick him out of their church if they have and morals. IA complusive liar is a piny bit better than a child rapist. Neither onw of them should have power over large groups of people, and especially not the free world.

Did you not know politicians lie? Obama has lied many times and there is solid evidence of this everywhere.

You do know UN was created by the US. The US holds the most advanced army in the world. The world will be under US control like it or not US/EU is the controlling force in the world today. If we don't stop the global violence noone will. Its time for it to stop. WW3 is well on its way with Iran as the main factor. Obama is setting it up.

Ah how nice. the Maine GOP is reminding us again how progressive they are. videogames are bad and anyone who does so is clearly unfit to lead. how quaint.

Does Romney even believe in video games? I mean, you have to use science to build all that technology and science scares the bejeesus out him!

Have they already forgotten about this: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Only an idiot would put their vote on someone like that. Not that I support any of them, I'm not even an american, but Obama is clearly the lesser of two evils.

Fair enough. Honestly, when Obama *speaks he comes off as intelligent.

I genuinely feel that when Romney speaks he comes off as less intelligent as Bush Jr.

At the end of the day would I rather someone who represents my country to make us look smart, or uneducated?

Ot: Colbert's bit about this crap they are pulling with that woman's WoW account was spot on. This is beyond grasping at straws, imo. If that's the best they can do then she has probably already won.
