Alt i mens jeg hacker Polaris til en politisk udgave, så er amerikanerne gået i gang med at hive D&D ind i valgkampen.
På Johns blog er der et indlæg, hvor han blandt andet citerer McCain.com:
In an earlier McCain.com post titled “NYTimes Editors: Leave Obama Alone!”, it described the NYTimes editors by saying “But in their new role as bloggers, the paper’s editors seem to have all the intelligence and reason of the average Daily Kos diarist sitting at home in his mother’s basement and ranting into the ether between games of dungeons and dragons.” (Conservative blogger Ace of Spades claimed that Goldfarg privately apologized to him for that, quoting a tongue-in-cheek response.)
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.
