it seems political opponents are scraping the bottom of the barrel with digging up dirt on each other:
A Maine Senate race has turned into a fight over trolls, dwarves and goblin-like creatures known as orcs.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/49313145/ns/us_news-weird_news/#.UHDWdFHsHbh
In a mailing this week, state Republicans accused Democrat Colleen Lachowicz of living in a fantasy world and making "crude, vicious and violent comments" in online forums dedicated to World of Warcraft, a popular online game.
Lachowicz, who is challenging incumbent Senator Tom Martin, has responded by accusing Republicans of focusing on her hobbies rather than public policy issues.
"I think it's weird that I'm being targeted for playing online games," she said in a statement. "What's next? Will I be ostracized for playing Angry Birds or Words With Friends?"
A website produced by Republicans includes a link to Lachowicz's online character, Santiaga, who sports a purple Mohawk and is armed with a meteor shard. It notes that the game takes place in a "make believe land Azeroth" and that Lachowicz is "playing at level 85 — the highest level one can attain."
The mailing said she spends hundreds of hours involved in World of Warcraft, which features an array of characters such as trolls and orcs.
"We need a senator who lives in our world, not Colleen's world," the mailing said.
I love the top comment:

Their world, that's only 6000 years old, was created by a bearded sky fairy, had a guy with 2 of each animals in a boat and is nothing more than a test before being sent of to some mystical cloud city and growing wings and learning to play the harp.
