McCain on D&D

John McCain recently spoke ill of D&D and its players:

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.

It’s not clear to me why “Dungeons & Dragons” is in there. The text works just fine without it. If anything, it’s stronger for lumping all the pro-Obama crowd together. This way, most of the pro-Obama crowd can congratulate itself on not playing D&D.

Anyway, the writer responsible later forced a Save vs. Apology with a +2 bonus for humor:

If my comments caused any harm or hurt to the hard working Americans who play Dungeons & Dragons, I apologize. This campaign is committed to increasing the strength, constitution, dexterity, intelligence, wisdom, and charisma scores of every American.
