Well, that tears it!

As if there were any doubts, it's clear that I simply can't vote for McCain. He's thoroughly anti-dungeons-and-dragons.
Hmm, but wait. If he were anti-D&D, and say, Pro-7th-Sea, that might be a different matter. But somehow I doubt that's what they're talking about.

"It may be typical of the pro-Obama Dungeons & Dragons crowd to disparage a fellow countryman's memory of war from the comfort of mom's basement, but most Americans have the humility and gratitude to respect and learn from the memories of men who suffered on behalf of others." from John McCain for President.

The thing is, not only is this fatuous, but it's wrong-headed, too. You don't play Dungeons and Dragons for 20 years without learning something about courage! Is it 4th ed? AD&D? Really the whole thing is very muddled.

McCain totally plays D&D. He strikes me as a paladin player. Probably still uses AD&D2nd.

Obama seems more like a CCG guy.

Imagine POW-camp D&D.
"all right, everyone roll initiative."
(they provoke the guards to beat them, the number of times they get hit is their result.)
"Frickin' McCain always goes first! Bastard must be a masochist."
"Nah, he just knows how to irritate the guards best!"
"Yeah. VC hate paladins, man."

Actually, credit where it's due - it's an X-Files quote.

Hell, you don't play Dungeons and Dragons at a con without learning something about suffering!

What a bizarre quote. I didn't know I was in a crowd!

McCain mentioned us!!

Not as special as having the local weatherman say "Thousand Oaks" during his weathercast when I was a kid, but still...
