Dungeons & Dragons Liberals vs. Risk Conservatives

A John McCain lackey posted this on the official web site today:

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.

For the record, yes, I played Dungeons & Dragons and many other RPGs. Still do, in fact. Yet somehow, despite my constant sojourns into the world of fantasy, I am grounded enough in reality to have been absolutely correct about the stupidity of NeoCons and their war. While I haven't run into that many NeoCons in D&D, I did run into them playing more traditional (surprise) games.

For your enjoyment, I present to you the poster boy of the NeoCon tactical mind. Sadly, idiots just like Rimmer have been given power, and allowed to make decisions costing people life and limb.



We don't got no frickin' basement ... and we ARE the moms and dads this moron is writing about.

What a bunch of idiots. They just wrote off anyone under 40.

The NC Family Policy Council doesn't speak for my family


We have been playing video games for over 30 years and know about computers too!

The sad thing is that he was trying to riff off of one of

Shatner's greatest Saturday Night Live moments, when he addresses a convention of Trekkies, saying, "Grow up! Go outside! Move out of your parents' basements!"

It had nothing to do with D&D everyone knows D&D is played in college dorms. Not basements.
