McCain Camp Slights D&D

A McCain aid made a D&D slight, which later resulted in an apology and an interesting follow-up article that takes the comment to task.

"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...."

My favorite comment:

We should pool our geekiness on the Prime Material Plane, with the capability of rending the fabric of the universe asunder, toppling an evil dark lord, and bringing peace to the land. It's called an election, and I call on all my fellow geeklings to register to vote. Bring your dice into the voting booth, if you want. Vote for whom you want to, but the choice is between the tired old 18th level fighter, years back from the wars, and an inspiring new mage possessing BOTH an 18 Charisma and an 18 Intelligence. I know which way I'm going.
