    Maine GOP attack Dem for playing World of Warcraft!

    and just when you thought it could not get any worse....

    "An estimated 211.5 million people, or about two-thirds of the population, play video games in the U.S"

    I'd criticize WoW players too, actually.

    I saw this in a few other places, but they didn't have the same omissions this one did. Apparently in order to reach that level you have to play the game an average of 22hrs a day for months. That's what was highlighted by the Maine republicans, which game it was is beside the point.

    The ad uses her admission of loving the game to imply she will be spending half an average workweek in game play if elected.

    That's just not true. I played WoW less than a year, and had several characters at lvl 70, then the highest one could go. I played an average of 4-5 hours in the evening.

    To criticize people for their hobbies is utter rubbish. Look how many hours it takes to become good at playing golf, yet most politicians play golf and nobody says a thing about the hours and hours they spend on the game. This kind of partisian hackery is what has poisoned the average American against both political parties, and the slanderous slime with which they gleefully fling at anyone on the other side, no matter how dishonest or deceitful.

    By Azeroth, I will condemn thee GOP to the fiery planes of Golgotha!



    Actually, I don't even play WoW.

    I'd just say it's too much of a time suck, especially for the money involved. I feel that way for all MMORPGs, actually. Too many expansion packs, too long to do quests...etc.

    What better way to connect with voters than video games?
