"The pro-Obama Dungeons & Dragons crowd"

The Wired magazine blog has a hilarious response to the McCain campaign's labeling of all Barack Obama supporters as Dungeons & Dragons players. (Really? RPG players? Not Xbox or Wii afficianados? Really???)

So Wired asked its readers this crucial question: If John McCain were a D&D character, what kind would he be? Needless to say, the D20 gang has been having a wicked good time over there in the comments field. Go check it out. (Thanks for the heads up, Ranger Ted!)

I'm thinking he made that bizarre statement solely to set up this absolutely brilliant apology:

"If my comments caused any harm or hurt to the hard working Americans who play Dungeons & Dragons, I apologize. This campaign is committed to increasing the strength, constitution, dexterity, intelligence, wisdom, and charisma scores of every American."

Joe, that's rich. But what Americans really want are massive gold, +5 Hummers, and a Myrlund's Magical Gas Pump in every driveway.

I've posted one entry and am waiting for it to let me post a second.

Known throughout the realm as Gygax's Bane, his psionic abilities to stupify pundits and low-information voters is amazing considering his low intelligence scores.

Remember, the definition of insanity is voting Republican over and over again, expecting different results.
