Yo.
In paranoia I find genius / But the ice-dreams have come
with spiritless consequence / A hatchet has been hidden
between my eyes / A hatchet gift-wrapped in paranoia / A
wooden heart never bleeds / A wooden heart never bleeds,
yet inextricable thoughts still weave / Introspection
fabricated for battle / No time has been wasted
/ Neuroleptic seconds marry electroconvulsive hours / In
the cranial freezer, paranoia is the bastard and I
find genius Petrify / Paralyze

I'm mostly not surprised because one of the other threads already has some images over this. xD

Wait, this is, in fact, a recent thing?

Well.  That's surprising.  The recentness, not the fact that this happened.

Dear Republicans,

Back down now. I'm warning you. If you keep at it, you will piss off the entire gaming community. There are a lot of us, and we have money. Hell, we even have our own lobbyists! Also, according to your own psychologists, we are very prone to violence. So unless you want to get fragged, get the hell out.

So she has experience at getting people with wildly disparate aims and ideas to work together long enough to acheive a goal and not completely fall into disarray arguing over who gets the results. In other words, perfect for politics.

Or dickpunching Arthas, Deathwing/ insert big bad of the current expansion here.  Can't forget about that.  Raid leading is herding fucking cats, and I say this as a raider.

Well, now they're acting like high school bullies.

Nerd slamming, in a political race. It would appear the Republicans will not be satisfied with one set low.

If she made a comment on WoW saying the Lich King is a very bad man, the Republicans would most likely leap to his defense.

Does this mean the new political parties are going to be Horde and Alliance?
