Orc in Maine state government

November 9, 2012

Timothy B. Lee at Ars covers this great story of newly elected State Senator Colleen Lachowicz, a gamer:

Maine gamer wins election despite anti-Warcraft attacks and previously Candidate for Maine State Senate attacked over Warcraft character (Updated)

Ok so again this has nothing to do with zombies but it’s notable as class of characters associated to politics. Again reference George Mazzei’s 1979 article in “The Advocate” entitled “Who’s Who in the Zoo?” referenced by wikipedia for use of animal words (like “bear”, “otter”, “cub”, “wolf”). These character classes represent metaphoric subgroups.


Recall previous zombie politics in Maine this season – ‘like a soulless zombie’ – Angus King won that election.
