So is the republican party now adding gamers to the list of groups they don't want votes from or care about?

In other news: The republican Party is baffled as to why it's attempts to paint itself as having moved away from it's old: The party for crotchity old folks, have continued to fail.

That seems to be the case here, yes.
Leaves very few demographics they can actually claim.

The most offensive thing here is that she thinks DPS stands for 'Deaths Per Second,' fuckign casuals.

[HEADING=1]2052, President Allen Mackenzie aka "Fokallzin "Soul Crusher" Blooddrinker, The Dark Lord of Fireforge" has won the presidential race for the Democrats!

Four more years of Blooddrinker!!![/HEADING]

It's coming guys, maybe sooner, maybe latter. I just hope I'll be alive for it.

Stay on topic, stay on topic: These Republicans will really do anything these days for victory points. Like wild dogs fighting over a carcass. It's a sad state what democracy in America has turned to, and really in general for many countries. "Well the track records always been terrible, it's just more noticeable now I guess".

A politician who might at times inhabit a different world to the established old-white-men habitat? PANIC AND FLEE, GOOD VOTERS.

How unbelievably stupid. Partaking in imaginary videogame violence does not translate to any intent to act out said violence in the real world. Nor does it suggest that someone is a psychopath, except in the minds of those who struggle to separate imagination and harmless recreation from reality.

As a conservative, I am wholeheartedly sorry. I mean, some of the stuff is kinda-sorta-maybe legitimate, but they're obviously just grasping at straws here.

Due to the fact that the average gamer age (in the US) is 30 - 35, I fully expect this to backfire and to see her win by a landslide. Stupid backward redneck republicans.

The second is that press release from the Republican Party of Texas saying they want to take america back to the 50's in terms of gay and non-white rights, that science is just a theory and creationsim is the truth, that it shouldbe illegal for coporations to face any kind of ecological or economical regulations, etc etc. The first is that such a stupid and backwards party is one of the big two in the USA, where anywhere else it would be barely even counted as a party.
This is undoubtedly a fun result, but I'd like to believe you are aware that most Republicans try to ignore the ones you are talking about. Why yes, those morons DO believe they speak for all of us Republicans. Would you like to wager I can't find a bunch of morons who claim to be Democrats that would make you swear not to know them?
And therefore I would like to think that as a modern day Republican, you might choose to not vote Republican on the basis that the party platform is based on a litany of regressive economic and social ideas and policies. The problem is not individual crackpots, but a political party that actively campaigns against gay/lesbian and women's rights; cuts taxes for high income earners and expects the "benefits" to "trickle down"; denies basic, affordable health care for tens of millions of people; and wants citizens to be able to own and use military style automatic assault rifles. And that's the short list.

Yes there are extremist views on the political left, but I would suggest they are not represented in the national political discourse of the Democrats. If Republicans (or Democrats) disagree with their party's politics and stated values but do nothing, they are more culpable than anyone who blindly tows the line. Mitt Romney is Exhibit A for flipping his views to appease the hard right evangelical conservatives.

The composition of this piece makes it seem as though the Republicans are wantonly attacking this democratic candidate for her love of WOW. But, in reality, they're raising questions over her suggestive (and by suggestive I mean borderline crazy person, violent, [/b]socialist[/b] nonsense) talk in online WOW forums.
One of these is not like the others. How is being "socialist" a valid point of attack, except to people still stuck in a paranoid McCarthyist mindset?

None of what she said is crazy or suggestive of a violent personality, you're being led along by reactionary scaremongering.

Why is it troubling to knock on someone when they suggest killing people? The escapist rules state not to threaten other people/members. If I made a statement threatening your life Andy, the life of a politician, or any other member of the escapist, I'd be instabanned (DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT IN ANY WAY ADVOCATING FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST ANDY! HE'S (usually) AN AMAZING JOURNALIST WHOM I QUITE ENJOY (most of the time)! SENTENCE WAS MADE FOR ARGUMENT!).
None of said posts were actual or serious threats, nor could they be interpreted that way by reasonable standards. People say "I'm going to murder you!!!" or "You're dead!!!" all the time, either jokingly or as an expression of frustration without any murderous intent.

She's a senator from my home state of Maine and I must say I'm very proud. She'd have my vote easily is she was in my district. A senator who looks forward to "dick punching Arthas" is okay by me.

....They do realise that this is going to cause her to get pretty much the ENTIRETY of the Youth Vote right? I mean, I live nowhere near Maine, i'm not even american, I don't know anything about this womans politics or policies, and yet I still want to vote for her.
