In order to quell the accusations he is “elitist” and “inexperienced,” Sen. Barack Obama announced Tuesday he had begun playing World of Warcraft between campaign stops.
“He is sick and tired of all the slander,” spokeswoman Taryn Tillson said. “So now he’s killing two birds with one stone. Literally. Sometimes even three birds.”
The idea first surfaced while he was campaigning for the Democratic nomination against Sen. Hillary Clinton, Tillson said. After being called “inexperienced,” Obama quickly created an exploratory committee to find out what the average American enjoys doing in their free time. A quick Google search by the campaign found that nearly 10 million gamers subscribe to World of Warcraft, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game originally released in 2004.
With that information, Obama decided to become the newest resident of Azeroth. As a human mage, he hopes he can cast the same spell in the video game as he has over America, Tillson said.
“We want to show America that Barack is more common-man Situs Slot Online Terpercaya than Superman,” Tillson said. “And these World of Warcraft votes could make a difference come November.That is, if we can motivate them to get offline long enough to vote.”
But it wasn’t until after Obama had begun playing the game that the Obama campaign discovered the game also provided unforeseen benefits to the Illinois senator.While it is unlikely he’ll discover how to cast fireballs at his political opponents, his campaign advisers are urging him to play up the experience he is gaining in military situations.
“Any type of battle helps for someone as inexperienced as Obama,” said Jeff Michael, a Republican political strategist who has leveled his Troll character up to level 68. “Especially when he is campaigning against a war hero.”
The campaign spokeswoman also announced Obama has started unprecedented peace negotiations with the Horde, an alliance of Orcs, Blood Elves and Trolls often called “evil” by casual gamers. While the negotiations have been completely unsuccessful so far, as the Horde has responded by killing his character several times, Obama has yet to give up hope each time he automatically comes back to life.
The McCain camp did not release an official response. However, someone close to McCain – who asked to remain anonymous – worries this will limit McCain’s influence with the penting gamer vote.
“He’s said it himself before. He doesn’t text and he doesn’t really Google,” the source stated. “What the public doesn’t know is, his favorite game is PONG. Not because he likes it all that much, but because he still thinks it’s the latest video game on the market.”
Now we Slot Online Terpercaya must find a way to enlighten him about burningWoW 😀
