Faux Ryan: Photo Op for the Poors

Well, clean pots don't just wash themselves, do they?  It takes someone to make them dirty so they can be photographed making them clean.  So that that person has the appearance of compassion.  Not actual compassion.  Fake it till you make it?

Maine GOP, like Scott Brown, R-MA, Tries to Divert Attention from Dismal Record

Waterville, ME—State Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz released the following statement in response to an attack piece sent out by the Maine Republican Party.

Colleen Lachowicz says, “I think it’s weird that I’m being targeted for playing online games. Apparently I’m in good company since there are 183 million other Americans who also enjoy online games. What’s next? Will I be ostracized for playing Angry Birds or Words with Friends? If so, guilty as charged!”

Lachowicz added, “What’s really weird is that the Republicans are going after my hobbies instead of talking about their record while they’ve been running Augusta for the last two years. Instead of talking about what they’re doing for Maine people, they’re making fun of me for playing video games. Did you know that more people over the age of 50 play video games than under the age of 18? As a gamer, I’m in good company with folks like Jodie Foster, Vin Diesel, Mike Myers, and Robin Williams. Maybe it’s the Republican Party that is out of touch.”

According to the Entertainment Software Rating Board, here’s a break down and profile of a gamer in the United States:
  • 65% of U.S. households
  • 49% of 18 – 49 year olds
  • 26% over the age of 50
  • 25% under the age of 18
  • 2 out of 5 people are female
  • average age of a gamer is 34
  • $24.8 billion industry

According to the Christian Science Monitor, 183 million Americans play video games.

GOP vs Gamer

 Well, really, they hate us for our freedoms.

But there are some freedoms we have that we shouldn't.  Like freedom of reproduction.

Or freedom to be a gamer and run for the Maine State Senate.
