I don't like her comments about "being able to kill people without jail time". There is no jail in WoW and her making that comparison tells me that she may not be able to completely separate reality from the fantasy world. Then again, I could just be over-thinking it.
So, what, you're telling me that you've never, ever, ever loaded up a game for stress relief? You've never played an FPS game and toted around a gun just to shoot people and thought "Wow this is fun!"? You've never done that for stress relief?
That's why a lot of us play video games -- we can do all the things we can't do IRL without consequence. You can't take a rocket launcher and blow a jeep full of people up or some-crap IRL, can you? No, you can't. But you CAN in a game and you can point and laugh at the fiery wreckage and you can have fun doing it.
You can grab a machinegun and mow down people in-game; they're just pixels.
I imagine a politician's job is probably stressful (especially with the kind of Republican bullsh*t she has to put up with, as evidenced by this website attack against her); stress relief is probably a necessary part of her life, otherwise most humans would go insane.
There's nothing wrong with her statements; she's saying/doing the same thing that a major portion of the American population is saying/doing.
EDIT: I am in no way, shape, form or manner saying I support the Republicans or the Democrats; I'm completely neutral in that regard, before someone gets the bright idea that this is an anti-republican (or pro-democrat) post.
