Victory or Death!

Aw wow, today has been great on so many levels but seeing Colleen Lachowicz win out in her Maine Senate campaign especially after having her opponent attempt to besmirch her just because she happened to play a little WOW is really the icing on the cake!

Welcome to the Senate, CL. I think you'll find it's a lot like Barrens chat in many ways.

To be fair, I find the Orcish horde's position on rape to be a lot more moderate than the GOP.

I'm sure I heard more about her player character than her potential constituency.

Sweet. Almost balances out the odour of that piece of Tennessee fecal matter that managed to get re-elected.

When you have a native population of barbarians who like to pillage, the best idea is to get them pointed at an enemy of your choice, instead of sitting around looking for one.

Nice! So much farking win last night, I am cautiously optimistic about this country again. I hope we just witnessed the death of the Tea Party, and then some.
 
2012-11-07 05:22:38 AM  
Did her opponent drop any good loot?
 
2012-11-07 05:22:59 AM  
This is why I cannot run for office. The other candidate would use smear tactics against my Harvest Moon person!

Nothing against her, but doesn't it take more than a "little" playing to get to level ?
 
2012-11-07 05:40:59 AM  
Grr, level 68

I ground a Pandaren Monk from level 1 to 90 in about 3 days. It doesn't take that long.

Trick is not sleeping, of course.

The quote that was used against her was from '09. She may not even play anymore. Still I'm glad that attacking someone for playing an online game didn't work.
Who's really going to swayed into not voting for someone because they do some online gaming? I mean besides the religious nut jobs and tea party types that would never vote for a Democrat anyways?

Oh, and slightly off topic, thank the tea party types that you know today. They played a large role in what happened last night.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Republican side mentions Chuck Norris often...

They've done some nerfing to make leveling more straightforward; the game when I started playing was NOT newbie-friendly. I can get to Level 20 in about 3 days and Level 60 in two weeks without locking myself in my room and subsisting on pizza and Tang.

As noted before, her quote was from three years ago, so she might not still play, but if she does, it IS interesting that someone can balance leisure and professional time so well that they can run a successful political campaign while being a gamer.

TFA links to an interview with her from a couple months ago just after Mists dropped. She does still play, even made it to 85, she just doesn't play an awful lot.

True that. I'mma Wrath Baby technically and I remember those bad old days all too well and only imagine how bad the grind was back in TBC and Vanilla days. Try grinding herbalism these days while questing, you gain ridiculous XP. I swear 40% of those 90 levels were gotten by picking a few flowers while questing. Between that and all the BOAs available even without RAF levelgrinding is easysauce.

She's only ilvl 345!? And only level 85??? What the hell has she been doing? Trying to run for public office or something?

And as far as the intersection between gaming and politics goes, I just finished reading this tonight:

God that book was preachy. It was an enjoyable, light read, but daaaammmmnnnnn does Doctorow really climb up on the pulpit these days. REAMDE covered similar territory, but in the context of a political thriller, and was much better (aside from the, "Hi, I'm Neal Stephenson, and I will cram my book full of ideas, but can't write an ending, so we'll just slam the plot into a brick wall and call it a day.")
