    For the horde!

    Thanks for posting this, I was thinking about it yesterday and wondering if she won.  One of you posted on boingboing in ’08 about how it was ridiculous for candidates to pose with farmers, when more people play WOW than farm in America today.  When I first read this story, I remembered that and thought, this flyer just might backfire on them.

    The best part is the video she posted to Facebook after winning.

    Of course she won, she is Horde, totally OP.

    Oh, snap!  I feel a serious bout of Dr. Evil laughter coming on…

    Illegal orcs take jobs away from real Americans.  Mitt would have protected us, but you liberal pinko commie pinkos didn’t pay attention.  WAKE UP, SHEEPLE!

    Woohoo a WoW senator – the US is in danger of becoming cool again!

    Republican tears are the best, most tasty tears. They nourish my soul!

    visited the facebook page, came back to report on the “KNOCK ON …. ALL THE DOORS” meme. Brilliant.

     Zug Zug!!!

    It really highlights how out of touch from modern values and common discourse the Republican party has become; they thought they were smearing her when they were actually distributing facts that made her look cooler.

    Her opponent now has a lot of free time on his hands. Might I suggest World of Warcraft?

    Looks like she came from behind!

    I want her to do something about the Horde’s advantage in PvP. Can’t she pass a bill or something?

    I have a dream where people are judged not by the color of their orc, but by the level of their character…

  17. Chentzilla says:

    For the Win!

    I’ve never played WoW, so I don’t get most of the stuff in these comments. However, this did make my day! :D

    Last played (this character at least) about a year ago it seems. Still, once a wow-player, always a wow-player… :)
