Well, blood sucking parasite seems like pretty good qualifications for any politician

/but this f*cker is just weird

I always preferred the table-top White Wolf games.

The live-action stuff always seemed so weird and hokey.

"As a straight shooter, yes, I play and have played video games, role playing games, board games, Yahtzee, Clue, and I have acted in dozens of theatre productions," Rush said. Bottom line - There is nothing wrong with being a gamer. It's kinda nerdy, but North Central Florida deserves a legitimate debate on the issues instead of Ted Yoho's usual sideshow distractions," he concluded.

Uh-huh.  And the line about "wanted to stick my dick in your mouth to shut you up while I snorted a line off my new machete"?  One helluva fantasy life you got there, Mitty.  Very ITG.

Hey, wait.

Wasn't there a bunch of kids in Florida who started playing Vampire and killed a couple people for their blood?

You say it like they're mutually exclusive.
 
2014-04-01 04:51:18 PM  
Bwaaaahahahahaha!

You know why this is funny? Because it is. People who voluntarily call themselves "Republican" are off the deep end now. They have abandoned the values of your grandparents and parents. They're swimming in a soup of human shiat that nobody under the age of 30 believes in any more.

Give up. Your ideas are old, and most of the human race hates American Republicans now.

So?
It's not any business of mine what he does in his free time if it's not hurting anyone. (unless they want to be hurt, sounds sort of S&Mish to me)
People need to decide if they're going to be tolerant or not, because the Republican banner doesn't necessarily make him a terrible human being. (he's only a candidate)

I should have chosen Reddit so I could run on a Neckbeard Libertarian platform.

I would hope the constitution would protect a vampire's right to be elected to congress.  It's certainly not excluded.

Maybe he really is a vampire and he's LARPing as a conservative republican.

Mind....blown.

Yeah, I don't care about his being a LARPer, and I think it's a stupid strategy and low blow by the Democratic candidate to even bring it up.

But if he's really a conservative Republican, he's probably absolutely nuts and shouldn't be allowed within a mile of elected office.  Self identifying that way is often a sign of mental illness.

Hopefully with the healthcare mandate in place, he'll get the mental help that he needs.

I talk politics with my barber.  I've always leaned right in foreign affairs and economic policy.  He suggested I should run for office.  I thought to myself, all people would need to do is Google my FARK handle and they'd be AW HELL NAW.

Yeah, well, if he can't afford the $6000 deductible then he's up shiat creek.  TAKE THAT LIBTARDOS! YEAH! IN YOUR FACE!

:P

/and if he gets elected, his constituents are also up shiat creek
 
2014-04-01 06:20:50 PM  
He's just saying he's a vampire LARPer so he can relate to the average Joe. That being a bloodthirsty parasite is just an act, and not his real conservative Republican persona.

There's no denial like gay Republican denial. It has its own special flavor of fabulous rainbow wide stance crazy.

He has quite the collection of pics on the wiki. But i'm sure the pics of the succubus, the man pointing the gun at the dog, and the various initiates tied up on a table are all just normal college kid stuff and we shouldn't hold it against him. His alt character, Darling Schizzgoebbler is a little unsettling though.

The quote was in character.

The character in question is a vampire Christian fundamentalist, essentially.

The game that ran out of my shop had an ancient (well, for the US) courtroom to use. I just watched. The setting helped.

Double standard.  I mean, who hasn't wanted to snort a line off their machete while shutting someone up with their dick?

It's the Republican incumbent in primary he's running against, not the Democratic candidate yet.

Sadly, this. Acting class farked cosplay and they had a LARP.

All I ask is that we be honest as to which parent we're favoring for tonight's session. So I can stay away from the cosplay shiat.

Now, that said, this guy likes real theater so maybe he does the real thing.
 
2014-04-01 07:00:41 PM

What are his political viewpoints? I don't care about this guy's hobby/lifestyle (as it's consensual and doesn't harm/kill people).

Meh, all it takes it's a little concentration, and my blood will become liquid fire.
