+5 Politics: World Of Warcraft Player Wins Senate Seat

November 7, 2012


Leeeeeeeeeeroy Jenkins!

I meant to post this story last month, but, I'm going to be perfectly honest with you, I got drunk and forgot about it. But now we know the results so I don't have to write about it twice, which works out for me because words can be tricky to type. Anyway, during Colleen Lachowicz's campaign for Maine state senate, it came to light she was a serious World of Warcrafter, and was attacked by the opposing party for her gaming habits (see ad above). She, in return, cited that her gaming made her even more relatable to the populous. Long story short, she just won her race and will probably be the one yelling at her laptop during senate hearings. Hopefully things that could be mistaken for actually paying attention like, "This is bullshit!" and not "Where the hell's my enchanted armor?!"

Thanks to Lawrence, chichi and The Superficial Writer, who agree they probably should have elected somebody who got the platinum trophy for Borderlands 2 over the weekend. Me, guys -- I'm talking about me.
