Senate Candidate Slammed For Playing WoW

I love my job on days like this.

Today in 'News that isn't a headline from The Onion', Maine State Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz has come under fire by the Maine Republican Party for playing World of Warcraft.

It's not often I get to type a sentence like that. 

If the above image isn't hilarious enough, the website Colleen's World ("Paid for and authorized by the Maine Republican Party"), where the above image originates from, is full of more such treasures. Such as Lachowicz scandalously declaring 'she isn't normal,' or the campaign-destroying moment where she said 'I spent my day leveling an undead warlock.' Truly, Colleen Lachowicz is unfit to serve on Congress, with her whole 'being a normal person who plays video games.'

She has released a statement effectively dismissing the whole thing, citing ESRB gamer profiles and pointing out how the likes of Vin Diesel and Jodie Foster join her in being huge nerds. And more power to her - she's taking this just as seriously as she should.

The fact that they decided DPS stood for "Deaths Per Second" is hilarious.
